Lerins- known in ancient times as Lérina - is an archipelago composed of two islands: St Marguerit and St Honorat located in the bay of Cannes, about 15 minutes by boat from Juan-les-Pins.
The smallest and most aside – St. Honorat – is a lush garden surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
For over 16 centuries St. Honorat has hosted a monastery and is today the home of the Cistercian Congregation of the Immaculate Conception. This community - made of 20 monks - is living modestly and peacefully in this oasis of silence.
The Lérins Abbey host regular "retreats" in its monastic hospitality for people seeking serenity. The vineyard offers wine production in an unspoiled environment over the crystal clear Mediterranean waters.
The banquet will be held after the visit to the island and Abbaye de Lérins at the seaside restaurant Bijou Plage. Overlooking the island of Lérins, Cap d'Antibes and the Palm Beach Point (Cannes), Bijou Plage offers you an exceptional and relaxing view.
