  • Island's village was founded in 1820, with the lighthouse built in 1837 and the church in 1850. In 1912 Porquerolles was purchased by Francois Joseph Fournier (1857-1935, Belgian adventurer and property developer) as wedding gift for his wife. He planted 200 hectares (500 acres) of vineyards.
  • France purchased 80% of the island in 1971 to preserve it from further development. Today, much of Porquerolles is part of the Port-Cros national park.
  • Since 2010, Porquerolles annually hosts the music festival "Jazz a Porquerolles" (held here each summer).
