Saint-Pierre & Miquelon Tourism in the News
What the travel experts have to say
From the moment you step on this tiny piece of French turf you'll have a sense of being magically transported to Europe.
- Catherine George, Toronto Star
On the charming islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, residents feel a closer affinity with European French issues than they do with Quebec... - Foster Smith, National Post
Only Maurice Chevalier seemed to be missing on this Bastille Day in
this last forgotten speck of a French imperial holding
that once stretched from here to New Orleans.
- Clifford Krauss, New York Times. (Link)
The traveler for whom the glass is half empty would report that the French islands turned out to be neither glamorous, cosmopolitan nor exciting. I take another tack: They are better than that, being genuine, rather vulnerable and larded with history. An odd compound of Canadian fishing town and France, St.-Pierre and Miquelon are finally like nothing but themselves. - KATHERINE ASHENBURG, New York Times.
Today, St. Pierre is a sleepy town of crooked streets, most of them minus street signs, and tiny wine, chocolate, perfume and lace shops, many of them hidden anonymously among the pastel houses. - JAY STONE, The Gazette
The food is terrific... French with Atlantic ingredients - Pierre Rouss
The people are curious, warm and friendly. St. Pierre and Miquelon is a "must see" for all. - Anonymous
