The historic towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, just across the water from Sardinia, are both fascinating destinations, their character fiercely Corsican, yet imbued with classical Italian and French spirit. A holiday in Porto Vecchio brings together the best of all three, from the town's charming Tuscan architecture and Latin cuisine, to the old square flanked by dappled cafés, chic boutiques, art galleries and the tabac; while a holiday in Bonifacio, right on Corsica’s southern tip, drops you at the heart of an ancient garrison – one of our luxury hotels lies within the actual fortress. Corsica is the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean, and with over a third of the land dedicated to nature reserves, our visitors to Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio invariably appreciate how little development there has been, and how seamlessly buildings complement the environment, including our villas – from stone-built bergeries to cottages.
A Latin cocktail
Around the scenic Gulf of Porto Vecchio, at child-friendly beaches such as Palombaggia (voted among the Top Ten in Europe) and Pinarello (where our stylish beachside apartments are 20 metres from the sea), the translucent water is edged by soft, pine-shaded sand, making holidays in this region firm favourites with families. Half-an-hour’s drive away, at Bonifacio, a giddying cliff drop to the sea explains why its walls have never been breached. The historical interest here blends with a certain Gallic glamour, and a visit to Bonifacio involves finding the favourite quayside restaurants, cafés, boutiques and museums, as much as exploring the narrow cobbled streets or zig-zagging up to the citadel – a climb that can reward you with the sunset of a lifetime and a deserved apéritif. But Corsica is also loved as a jewel of nature, its mountains, forests of oak and abundance of birdlife all a hiker's dream.
With sea routes from the south of France and our direct British Airways flight into Figari airport, it has never been easier to travel to this beautiful Island and experience all that it can offer. For more information, contact us today.
