Where is the boat? Check the picture and tell us where it was taken.

No worries, we will give you some hints… The island is… in the Mediterranean Sea. Not enough? Let’s see if the next clue takes you towards the right path: the island’s village was established in 1820, with its lighthouse constructed in 1837 and church in 1850. The entire island was purchased in 1912 by François Joseph Fournier, apparently as a wedding present for his wife; he planted 200 hectares (500 acres) of vineyards which produced a wine that was among the first to be classified as vin des Côtes de Provence.

It is the setting for the 1949 novel Mon Ami Maigret (My Friend Maigret) by Georges Simenon and the 1964 novel Valparaiso by Nicolas Freeling.
