The Golden Islands

Prince Orbianus had four daughters whom he loved very much. Extraordinary swimmers, they were not afraid of adventures far from the coast. One day, as they left the coast, the sails of a pirate ship appeared on the horizon. His father asked them to get back to the coast as quickly as possible, but alas! A barbarian ship caught up with them.

The Prince knelt down and prayed to the gods to save his daughters from the abduction that awaited them. The sky was moved by his prayers, and even before the pirates tried to take it, the princesses felt their limbs slowly stiffen, their bodies turn to stone.
The three furthest sisters formed the Iles d'Or (Porquerolles, Port Cros and Le Levant), while the youngest, who desperately reached out to her father, later became Giens. Everyone agrees that the islands have retained the incredible beauty of the four princesses...
