Europe has never been closer. The quaint island of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon is a small territory of France that sits just 10 kilometres off Newfoundland’s southern coast. Its warm inhabitants and colourful heritage mark the last remnant of France’s once large stake in North America. Let yourself be charmed by the unique characteristics of these French islands, only doorsteps away from Canada. Discover the museums of Saint-Pierre which display relics from its colourful past, including a rich rum running history during Prohibition. Or take a leisurely stroll through the archipelago’s downtown streets in search of French cheese, pastries, wine, charcuterie, and chocolate. The French like to take the time to enjoy their meals – and their dining companions – and things are no different in the Archipelago. We like to call it la joie de vivre!
