Ile de Porquerolles, France
It’s just a 10-minute boat ride from the Cote D’Azur but Ile de Porquerolles may as well be a world away. No mass tourism or high-rises – just a charming harbour and a notable national park. Hike or bike the interior; enjoy sandy beaches on the northern side. Of the few places to stay, Le Mas du Langoustier is the top pick.
