Photographer's Note

Belle-Ile-en-Mer is the largest of the Brittany islands, and is found off the Morbihan coast opposite Quiberon.
Surrounded by cliffs and beaches, the island is approximately 17km by 9 km. Belle-Ile is a pretty island with a nice mix of scenery, beaches and ports.
The two ports on the island - Le Palais and Sauzon - are on the north-east coast of Belle-Ile-en-Mer, slightly more protected from the ravages of the Atlantic Ocean than the south-west side, which is known as the Cote Sauvage ('wild coast').
The curious conditions actually enable mediterranean plants to grow very well on the island, which is significantly warmer than the nearby mainland France.
The island is a particularly attractive, scenic place with some beatiful scenery and coastal views interspersed with pretty little towns and villages.
