Just a 15 minute boat trip from Cannes, the Île Ste-Marguerite is an island that is just off the coast and is home to the Fort Royal, where the mysterious Man in the Iron Mask is said to have been held. Visit the cells where he was kept, go for a wander around the fort or uncover some of the history of the area at the Maritime Museum where you can see archaeological finds from a 1st century Roman and a 10th century Saracen shipwreck. 

Why not go for a stroll through the forest trails and be surrounded by the fresh fragrances of pine and eucalyptus with sound of the waves rolling onto the beaches nearby.
