    Rendez-vous in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon

    Welcome to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, a French archipelago only steps away from Canada.

    The islands are situated close to the south coast of Newfoundland, and is composed of three principle islands. Saint-Pierre, the main island with a surface of 26 square km, Miquelon with 110 square km, and Langlade with 91 square km. Miquelon and Langlade are connected by a sand isthmus of 12km. This can seem small, nevertheless, you will be charmed by the unique specificities discovered on such a short distance!
