Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a French archipelago south of the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Sparsely populated Miquelon-Langlade island contains the Grand Barachois lagoon, home to seabirds and seals. The busier Saint Pierre island has a distinct French atmosphere, with a cathedral and the Musée Heritage, which celebrates regional history.
Our retreat will be in the island nearby named Île-aux-Marins, a former fishing village. We'll be staying in an off-the-grid century old large fishermen home. The same home that served as a hub to whisky smuggling during prohibition.
Saint Pierre and Miquelon, officially the Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France, situated in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean near the Newfoundland and Labrador province of Canada. It is the only remnant of the former colonial empire of New France that still remains under French control, with an area of 242 km2 and a population of 6,080. See wikipedia here.
