    The island of Saint Catherine ( Fr: l'île de Sainte-Catherine ) is located in the Mediterannean Sea, out of the French mainland.
    The island has been inhabited by the Romans and the Roman Citadel is the only trace of their presence.
    In 1,150 AD, the Catholic Monastery of Sainte-Catherine was built.
    The monastery had a population of 600 people at its time and it was then when the production of the famous Catherinettes wine started.

    General view of the East Coast

    The Monastery of Saint Catherine and the town's peninsula


    During the reign of Louis XIV a summer Mansion for the Emperor was built and the following decades the island's population quadrupled.
    At this time the production of the famous wine got systematic and the island attracted wealthy families.

    Nowadays the town sprawls around the Summer Palace and expands to the North where a small commercial port has been built in the 1940's and to the West into the island's Western farmlands.

    The Marina and the Festival of the Catherinettes

    The West Gate and the Palace Hill

    The seaport and the Cruise Terminal

    The Northern Farmlands and the airport

    The Western farmlands and the town's suburbs


    While the island's East coast is occupied by the main town and the seaport zone, the entire West coast, around the Lagoon is a protected Natural Habitat and another source of revenue for the island. Large areas of this side of the island are completely protected and any building is prohibited. Access to this part is possible either by the sea or by small farm roads.

    The Natural Habitat

    The Natural Habitat is one of the 4 big National Parks existing in Southern France and a home for flora and fauna of the area. Two of the beaches in the Habitat are egg laying areas for Caretta-caretta Turtles while the Habitat is also the home for the last remaining couple of Mediterannean Eagles. You can read more about the Habitat here: Parc National de Port Cros
