Les Sources de Caudalie
If you’ve declared war on cellulite, this fall why not try the grape cure: grapes, and nothing but grapes, for 3 to 6 days in the Burgundy Region to give you healthier skin and a clearer complexion while detoxifying your body.

Welcome to Mayotte

One of the four main islands of the Comoros, which controls the Mozambique canal, a French possession since 1841.

It is the only island that chose to retain its status as a French overseas territory during the 1974 referendum that granted independence to the other islands.

Here you can discover overseas France in a tropical setting. The landscape and vegetation are wonderfully rich and the sea water in the lagoon is delightfully clear.


Composed of one main island and 18 islets
Covers an area of 375 square kilometers
