The richness of the Corsican Corsica Tourlandscape makes every attempt to describe very difficult, because there are so many various splendours which come close together or become intermingled between marine blue sky and heavenly horizon ; such as the lofty peaks, valleys worthy of a legend, wild or harmonious gulfs, sheltered inlets, placid or wild beaches, cliffs sculpted by men and spindrift, hillsides cut out for vines and the olive tree.It was during the tertiary era that the alpine system's shake-up had the genius for creating the fracture of a part of the old continent called tyrrhenide and raising it up, through the ages, for giving birth to this dazzlingly beautiful isle which is now called Corsica.

Corsica TourSituated at the junction of the maritime roads leading from France to Italy and the East, and from Central Europe to Italy and Spain, Corsica with 8772 km2, 183 km long and 83 km wide and 1000 km of coasts, is the third largest isle of the Western Mediterranean and the highest too because it reaches its highest point at an altitude at 2710 km!

Corsica TourCorsica is situated in the Mediterranean Sea at a latitude of 41° north and a longitude of 9° east. The island enjoys a pronounced Mediterranean climate: hot summers and only moderately cool winters. Climatic conditions vary greatly from region to region, depending upon elevation. It is, for example, very well possible to sit in the hot sunshine on the coast in April, while there is still snow in the mountains. There are about 95 days of rain in Corsica (on average), with only a small proportion of these falling between June and October. Storms occur more on the west coast and in the mountains.


Ajaccio
Leaning at the sideAjaccio of the most beautiful gulf of the world, under the look of the touching Iles Sanguinaires, the elegant Ajaccio, strong by the beauty and the fame that gods and some of its sons, knows with a nonchalance full of humour and of sensitivity how to charm its visitors. Still dazzled by the light of Ajaccio, the traveller will continue its way, in the north, toward the Cinarca valley whose softness evoke the Tuscany, toward Tiuccia, Sagone and Cargese - small Greece - on promontory, then, not far from there, toward Piana with the fantastic Calanches, tumults petrified in the granite's blood.

Bastia
Bastia, beautiful and grave, Bastiaancient guardian of the Tuscan strait, protects with a just pride the richness of its past. Its old Harbour, its numerous religious sights, its gentle alleys which were formerly cradled by the operatic arias whose some of its talented children have made the renown, are the picturesque witnesses of all this. Clever, it also knows energizes its industry, its trade, and its transports while preparing the future without losing its soul there. The technology and communication one. Solidly cramped facing the Levant, Bastia offers to those who go a little far away from it - but just a little - regions which are contrasting as they are beautiful.

Bonifacio
Like a masterpiece that the final touch must sublimateBonifacio, the gods only could give Corsica, in its extreme south, a unique place of interest. This one takes the look of a white ship which proudly attacks the open sea: Bonifacio! No one can resist neither the fascination of this old town which is dazzlingly white, nor the appeal of its old alleys which climb up toward the sky, and bordered by the cliffs from where the isles of Lavezzi and Cavallo, or Sardinia can be seen, you will be maybe pray to a vertigo which you could not say if it is physical or, in front of so much audacious beauty, just simply mystic !

Calvi
Calvi, jewelCalvi of the Balagne impresses with the variety of its beauty : an imposing Genoese citadel and a marina which is full of life at its foot, cheerful and many-coloured alleys, a high-town full of self-assurance and serenity, and finally a beach which languorously stretches along its pinewood.Between the fresness of the seaweed with their powerful scent of iodine, which caresses St Florent, the Genoese and the coasts which line the gardens of the Balagne, the blazing Desert of the Agriates streches. This piece of land covered with a burning and scented scrub, favourable to kindle the imagination which has nourished many legends which were born from its wild beauty and from the strangeness of its forms, contrasts, for more charm, with its neighbour, the fertile Balagne.

Cap Corse
Imbued with culture and traditions, proud and warm as the Cape CorseMediterranean people know to be, the Cap Corse stretches away very gently towards the Gulf of Genoa. The weather and the elements, in their common movement, have shaped there an authentic land, a platform for picturesque villages.No one can remain insensible to the charm of this 40 kilometres long and about 15 Km wide headland, that is lined-up by a succession of golden beaches and vertiginous drops.

Further info for this destination

Cargese
Sitting highCargese above a deep blue bay on a cliff scattered with olive trees, CARGÈSE (Carghjese), 20km southwest of Porto, exudes a lazy charm that attracts hundreds of well-heeled summer residents to its pretty white houses and hotels. The full-time locals, half of whom are descendants of Greek refugees who fled the Turkish occupation of the Peloponnese in the seventeenth century, seem to accept with nonchalance this inundation, and the proximity of a large Club Med complex, but the best times to visit are May and late September, when Cargèse is all but empty. The best beach in the area, plage de Pero, is 2km north of the village – head up to the junction with the Piana road and take the left fork down to the sea. Overlooked by a Genoese tower, this white stretch of sand has a couple of bars and easily absorbs the crowds that descend on it in August. Plage du Chiuni, a further 2km along the same road, is much busier thanks to its windsurfing facilities and the presence of Club Med. A more secluded spot is plage du Monachi, 1km south of the village; this small, sandy cove is reached by climbing down the track at the side of the road past the little chapel on the cliffside.

Cavallo Island
Cavallo Cavallo Islandis a French island, very close to the southern tip of Corsica. It is privately owned, so access is limited. Cavallo island is a private exclusive resort, with air-strip, villas and small central piazza. The waters here are not easy to sail, so we strongly suggest to sail with our skippers. Even if not easy to sail the environment is wonderful, made of crystal sea, white beaches and Amazing bays. There is an exciting narrow passage northwards close to the coast, passing the Pertusato golf course and the Isola Piana's shallow emerald waters, providing a unique swimming spot. Cavallo Island is breathtaking destination for a real charming sailing holiday among Corsica Coast, Emerald coast and the luxury French Riviera.

Ile Rousse
Ile-RousseIle Rousse [ Isularossa ] was founded in 1758 by Pasquale Paoli, the Father of the Homeland, who wanted to dethrone Calvi, Genoese city par excellence, he had gallows set in front of the first houses and declared : " I have put up these forks in order to take there Calvi". Wander in the streets of the small town and let yourself rocked by the softness of the Balagne. The late autumn is more subtle in sensations. The scents discreetly hang in the air.

Lavezzi Islands
LavezziLavezzi is an amazing island, the environment is enchanting and totally virgin: between the numerous figures and rocky heaps, the small tiny sand creeks compete with the big tropical beaches. Lavezzi Islands are listed in the Unesco World Heritage. There are no hotels on the Lavezzi Islands. No cafes, either. Not even a single toilet. And that's precisely why people come. Classified as a Natural Reserve by France in 1982, the islands, in the strait between Sardinia and Corsica, have been protected from development. But there hasn't been any shelter from the wind. Without buildings to break them, gusts have whipped the islands' granite into fantastic shapes.
LavezziIn the coves between the rocks are protected spots of empty, sandy white beach. The clear water is teeming with anemones and fish, particularly grouper (merou in French), which explains why divers know the islands as Merouville. The winds also caused one of the Mediterranean's worst shipwrecks. On the 160-acre main island (the only one that's more than a pile of rocks), a hiking path leads to a 46-foot-tall pyramid-shaped memorial for the sinking of the Semillante in 1855. We suggest to visit Lavezzi in low season (May, June, September October), when the prices of the sailing charters are good and you can easily be the only one in its wonderful bays. Come to discover Lavezzi during your unforgettable sailing vacation among Corsica, Maddalena Archipelago and Emerald Coast.

Porto Vecchio
LocatedPorto Vecchio at 25 km from the impressive Bonifacio, the city of Porto-Vecchio presents all the advantages of a seaside resort and shows some wonderful aspects that only its natural environment can reveal. Its age-old bastion and beautiful marina puts it in a strong position, it has a growing population and a prosperous tourist activity. During the last decades a drastic development helped it to overcome its isolation and now Porto-Vecchio appears among the best equipped areas of the island. Porto-Vecchio has thus become the third town of Corsica.

Saint Florent
The Sailing Harbour of Saint-FlorentSaint Florent is nestling at the foot of the Cap Corse, at the end of a Gulf which wear its name, lined-up at the west by the Desert of the Agriates, at Bastia level, the Capital of the North. In 1440, the Genoeses built on this site a citadel which remained, until the 18th century the siege of the bishop of the Nebbio and the governor palace. Despite the ravages caused by the malaria, this place was hotly contested at the 16th century by the French, the Genoeses, and of course, by the Corsican. The town finds a new expansion again, after Napoleon III had ordered the draining of the marshes, attacking then to the sources of the paludism.
