The island is a non-auto place and it is very charming. Walking around you see very nice houses and beautiful views of the sea. North and South offer different experience. Easy to reach by boat from the port across. We spent a very nice day.

I was so surprise, the island has a micro clime and during the summer months its like the Mediterranean. The view is outstanding, make sure that you lunch there and enjoy the good weather

It is a charming island with some beautiful, authentic old houses. The activities are walking all over to see the island and the houses, maybe visit a small church. Not many restaurants or shops except in the town where the ferry lands, so if you...More

I've been there for some hours. It's a nice place. Maybe there are too many people around, but it's still beautiful to see. To arrive to Ile de great there is a boat leaving from a small harbour 10 minutes from Paimpol. The harbour in...More
