"Would you like to spend some time resting and relaxing? Looking to recharge your batteries in a unique natural setting? Then welcome to St. Peter’s Island! Having lived on the island for a few weeks, Jean-Jacques Rousseau yearned to stay there for the rest of his life. Following one of our guides, you will set off to discover its long and wonderful history passing through the Celts, the Romans, the Merovingian’s, the monks of Cluny and the Reformation to the present day. The archaeological remains are also worth a visit. We look forward to welcoming you here!"
