WHEN TO GO: MAI-OCTOBER
Day 1 Calvi
Situated at the very north west of the island, in a beautiful environment, the small town of Calvi occupies a very privileged location in Corsica. All the elements make this an unforgettable site: deep blue seas, fine sandy beaches lined with parasol pines, the bustling and vibrant streets and the mountains which surround the town seem to keep an eye on the area.
Day 2 Porto - Golfe de Girolata
The bay of Girolata is located to the south, bounded by Mount Seninu, the highest European headland and is emblematic of the Scandola nature reserve to the north. This small village has the unusual characteristic of only being accessible on foot or by boat and has only 15 annual inhabitants. Now listed as a UNESCO heritage site, Girolata is at the heart of an immense protected site. The bay of Girolta is also part of the elite group of the most beautiful bays in the world.
Day 3 Propriano
If you like the marine world, make the most of your stay in Propriano and experience the wonders of diving in one of the beautiful sites in Corsica. If on the other hand you fancy a more laid back approach, let your body and mind free on the most picturesque trails in Propriano, full of oaks, olive trees and vineyards.
Day 4 Bonifaccio
Bonifaccio, a town of extreme beauty. Without doubt the most famous town in Corsica but equally the most uncharacteristic. Discover an authentic area preserved in the extreme southern region of “island beauty”, the town of Bonifaccio is a true open air museum. In all seasons, it offers a unique collection of historic monuments, more than 20 fine-sandy beaches and an exceptional collection of rare countryside both on land and under the sea.
Day 5 Lavezzi Islands
The Lavezzi Islands, a tourist natural reserve, is a true jewel which sparkles in the Mediterranean Sea. A paradise for divers, an eden for ramblers, this small haven of peace consisting of a hundred or so islands is a delight for boaters. A tropical paradise, extending from dazzling white sandy beaches fringed by breathtakingly crystal clear water.
Jour 6 Magadelena
The Maddalena Archipelago, situated to the north east of Gallura in Sardinia, is a National Park which retains its totally wild minor islands: including the islands of Spargi, Razzoli, Budelli and Santa Maria. Perhaps the most beautiful colours of the entire Archipelago are those admired at Porto Madonna, a natural port created by the three most northern islands where the water is the most shallow and displays all the different shades of turquoise. It has even been given the name of “natural swimming pools’. The unique characteristic of these islands is the incredible richness of the shades of colours – from very pale jade green to ultramarine blue and fine white sand surrounded by scrubland made up of wild juniper trees that seem to feed on the sand and salt water.
