CORSICA, ISLAND OF LEGENDARY BEAUTY...


Corse -Sartene

There are lands that impress; magical and different lands. To call them "beautiful" seems too simplified and yet Corsica is the island which, according to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, would one day astonish the world.. It is through its Powerful nature and its deep culture that you will encounter this sense of wonder.. the lure of a traditional polyphony, which goes back to the mists of time. This is a unique land whose extraordinary beauty will capture your heart.

Calanques de Piana with its red rocks, the Iles Sanguinaires, ragged coastlines reached via the sea.. the small Genoese forts are often on the lookout...

Set off inland, for it is here that you will find its soul: Corte, the fortress city and the villages admirably situated, have a wealth of frescoes in their Roman or Baroque sanctuaries. Monte Cinto or Renoso.. the summits command fine views over their mountain streams and their lakes.

A town steeped in history, the birthplace of Bonaparte, Ajaccio is rightly proud of its superb gulf, and of the Botticelli, Titien and Veronese paintings in its museum..

Right at the foot of Cap Gorse and the coastal roads, the old town of Bastia is divided into its charming old port and its citadel... Bonifacio on the white cliffs overlooks the routes of Sardinia.. Olive trees, vineyards and cypress trees.. Calvi, Porto-Vecchio, prestigious resorts.. Aleria has been inhabited by Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans. Sartene with its Precious museum of Corsican Prehistory, was a veritable discovery in the Mediterranean.
