20 minutes off the bay of Cannes, Saint Honorat Island, known as Lérina in ancien times,
is a small lush garden in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
For 16 centuries, the monastery on the island has been home to the Cistercian Congregation of the Immaculate Conception.
Today the community is made up of 25 monks living modestly and peacefully in this unspoilt sun-kissed paradise, an oasis of silence.
La Tonnelle, a haven of peace with a relaxed, convivial atmosphere, offers views over the crystal clear Mediterranean waters.
The restaurant is open every day at lunchtime. A menu based on fresh, colourful, seasonal dishes full of Provencal flavours:
salads, grilled fish, meat and seafood complemented by the renowned wines and liqueurs produced by the monks from their vineyards on the island.
La Tonnelle also offers a range of possibilities for your business lunches or family gatherings as well as a wine bar and tearoom.
A snack bar is also available from May to mid-September.
