But this has never happened. And why should it? Porquerolles is no fantasy. It is absolutely real.Instead of the fictional Mr. Roarke, a very tan chauffeur greets us with “Bonjour. Bon retour à Porquerolles, as he takes us to Le Mas Du Langoustier, our island retreat.
as Mr. Man opted to do this year.
We have stayed in a number of places on the island, including a B&B and a self-catering apartment, but it is Le Mas Du Langoustier that continues to call us back.
The beaches near Le Mas Du Langoustier are wonderful, but they are just two of the numerous beaches on Porquerolles. So after a couple of days hanging out there, we got on our bikes, in search of some more prime beach property on the island.
Plage de Notre Dame ranks as one of our favorites. Beautiful turquoise water that is shallow enough for the little ladies to walk and play in, cliffs and coves to explore and probably the most important reason to go there – the ice cream boat that pulls right up to the shore.
After a week of hiding out on our fantasy island, it is time to return to reality. A short ferry ride takes us back to Hyères where we retrieve our car, bid Porquerolles adieu and continue Mo Travels summer adventure.
Maybe next time, the chauffeur from Le Mas Du Langoustier will have a white suit to go with his tan.
