A lovely seaside destination in southern corsica
Today’s Propriano dates from the early 19th century, its engaging town center full of boutiques, cafés, and bars in repurposed traditional houses. Its environs include unspoiled woodlands and charming small villages: the hilltop citadel of Bonifacio, seemingly one with the limestone cliffs on which it perches; and ancient Sartene, its homes designed like fortresses, a style born of local traditions steeped in superstition and vendetta.
Ajaccio is the capital of Corsica and the island's largest city. Elegant and sophisticated, it offers varied architecture and handsome squares, where the spirit of native son Napoleon seems ever present.
Using Avenue Napoleon as your starting point, stroll the lively and bright waterfront dotted with yachts, explore chic boutiques, and relax on a cafe terrace in the bustling square to take in life in this tiny and beautiful town.
The small seaside fishing village of Campomoro has kept its original charm. Enjoy the peace of the stunning beach, with clear water and mountains rising rapidly in the background.
This excursion will take you to Sartene—perched high on a mountain ridge is the medieval fortified town of narrow, cobblestone streets and austere, granite houses. Discover the Piazza Porta and the Church Ste Marie, which houses the cross and chains carried by the penitent during the famous Good Friday procession.About Land Discoveries + Book Now +
