This port is a visual delight. It’s a glorious sight with all the boats glistening in the sun. Nice to walk around the old port and perhaps visit the restaurants or simply buy an ice cream and saunter.

Lovely old port, with a row of bars/ restaurants. Right behind is the old center with more restaurants and lots of shops.

We dined at one of the restaurants that surround the port and chose the fixed price - plat du jour. Lots to see and excellent Tourist Information Office. All beautifully maintained and kept. If you like sailing boats you will be in paradise

Very nice quartier that shows the grandeur of medieval France. Very interesting and a bit of everything. Historic watchtowers, shops, bars, cultural places, ...

Our room overlooked this harbor where you can see how the tide changes about 10 feet from high to low. It is better at high tide as low tide leaves an unpleasant area of mud flats. Many restaurants surround this port.
