Tresco

L’incarnation du luxe et de la sophistication et le célèbre jardin de l’abbaye. 

Deuxième île de l’archipel par la taille, Tresco est un véritable joyau subtropical. C’est également la seule île privée des Scilly et elle est aujourd’hui gérée par Lucy et Robert Dorrien-Smith.

L’île offre une grande variété de paysages…. Pitons rocheux spectaculaires, sites funéraires de l’âge de bronze, ruines de châteaux romantiques et plages de sables isolées... sans oublier bien sûr le jardin de l’Abbaye de Tresco, de renommée mondiale, créé par Lord Augustus Smith dans les années 1830. Ce paradis horticole abrite une magnifique collection de plus de 20 000 plantes exotiques venues des quatre coins du monde, et dont beaucoup ne poussent nulle part ailleurs en Grande-Bretagne. Le musée Valhalla du jardin est tout aussi impressionnant avec sa collection bigarrée de figures de proue échouées.

Le nord de l’île, plus sauvage, est idéal pour les randonnées et l’exploration, tandis que le centre est l’endroit parfait pour observer les oiseaux à proximité des points d’eau. Vous pouvez également louer des vélos pour découvrir l’île. Les plus actifs d’entre vous emprunteront un bateau, une planche de surf ou un kayak auprès du club de voile de Tresco (Tresco Sailing Club). L’île se prête parfaitement au « beachcombing », la chasse aux trésors échoués, ou à la détente sur la plage. Les plages de sable blanc fin des baies de Pentle et d’Appletree offrent un cadre idéal pour se relaxer.

Quelle que soit l’activité choisie, l’île de Tresco respire la sophistication : de l’hébergement haut de gamme à la galerie d’art en passant par le fabuleux traiteur, les restaurants gastronomiques où vous pourrez déguster d’excellents produits locaux et le Flying Boat Club, un espace de spa primé.
