It's a pleasure for us to greet a family for a walk. We know that St Honorat is appreciated for its peacefulness ; don't hesitate to have a look at the view at the top of the monastery next time !

The vineyard tour takes place once a month indeed - every first Friday of the month. Wines are also available at the restaurant La Tonnelle on the island, but there is no free wine tasting. Best regards,
