Sunday Special – St Pierre and Miquelon

How do you go to Europe without leaving North America? Easy, you head to the French overseas collectivity of St Pierre & Miquelon, which off the coast of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  So they aren’t in Europe, geographically speaking. They are however these islands are French. They have remained as part of France since the time of historical colony of New France.

Located in the Bay of Fortune these islands are but a mere 25 km / 16 miles from the southwest coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The descriptions lend themselves to quiet isles that boast an unhurried vacation filled with clean air and cool breezes. Riveting  nature, savoury food and the French language gives this locale a definitive French-country-lifestyle feel with North American influence. Arrive by air or ferry and you are well on your way to a unique holiday experience. Don’t forget your Euros.
