What you'll do

From Toulon or Les Sablettes (free parking) , we will reach the island of Porquerolles by boat. Then we will discover Porquerolles by bicycle. The idea isn't to spend the day cycling. It's just a way to get to the different places, each about fifteen minutes apart, on flat trails suitable for families. For example, the beach of Notre Dame is a 45-minute walk from the village. By bike, and without forcing it, it will take us only 20 minutes. We will have different activities at the different places. I will arrange masks and snorkels at Gorges Du Loup, a beautiful place that is rarely attended. We'll eat a home-made picnic in a quiet place. We'll go to the beach of Notre Dame for relaxation and the landscape. Then we'll go to the village, where we can enjoy an ice cream or drink.
Other things to note
I'll provide the bike, plus a mask and snorkel to use at the beach.

Mathias is a great guy! Unfortunately my family doesn’t speak French, but Mathias ensured that we felt included in the small French speaking group we joined as we snorkeled, jumped off cliffs into the crystal clear, cool blue water, bicycled around Porquerolles, played around with a soccer ball on the beach, visited a cafe and enjoyed a beautiful picnic lunch. We felt so welcomed and at ease, even with the language barrier. This was a very special day for my family and it was so fun to explore France “off the beaten path” from what the average American tourist has on their vacation itinerary. We very highly recommend—- our experience was a complete joy!!! What a great way to absorb the authentic local culture!

Superbe journée sur cette île magnifique ! Mathias est super gentil et a organisé la journée comme un chef : bateau, location des vélos, déjeuner maison à l'ombre, endroits super à visiter et petit verre de rosé sur l'une des plus belles plage de l'île que demander de mieux ? L'activité est un peu physique quand même mais Mathias est très patient et n'hésite pas à faire des pauses et ralentir pour ceux qui n'arrive pas à tenir la cadence. En tout cas mon copain et moi même avons passé une journée inoubliable et vous conseille de faire cette activité les yeux fermés vous n'allez pas être déçu !
