South Corsica offers as many trendy seaside resorts (Porto-Vecchio, Bonifacio) as authentic villages and splendid mountain landscapes (Sartène, the villages of the Alta Rocca). Our selection of exceptional accommodations will allow you to combine nature break in the hinterland, relaxing on the beaches of the extreme south and seasonal entertainment.

VISIT PORTO-VECCHIO

The city of salt

Known as “The City of Salt” because of its ancient salt marshes, Porto-Vecchio is one of the main towns in the South Corsica region.

Whilst the town is full of restaurants, bars and ice cream shops between its marina and its historic centre, it remains mainly known for its sublime beaches. Some evocative holiday names: Palombaggia, Santa Giulia, Pinarello, Cala Rossa … In the heart of these turquoise bays you will find luxury beach restaurants, as well as a number of top-of-the-range hotels, carefully selected by Les Voyages Linea.

Porto-Vecchio is also famous for its lively nightlife.

A small change of scenery to work differently, a little peace to calmly tackle important business, this is what Corsica promises – whatever the season.

Conferences, seminars or other professional events will find an infrastructure adapted to working hours as well as to relaxation time. Pool, gym, spa – to optimise concentration time.

VISIT BONIFACIO

The city perched on limestone cliffs

The town of Bonifacio dominates the sea from the top of its chalk cliffs, into which were carved (according to legend in just one night) the 187 steps of the ‘King of Aragon’s Staircase’. These steps seem to plunge into the sea (they actually lead to one of the town’s caves) while the houses above seem suspended in the void. A fascinating sight to enjoy from the sea.

The team at Les Voyages Linea will advise you on boat trips through the caves or further afield towards the nearby archipelago of the Lavezzi islands or the island of Cavallo.

VISIT SARTENE

The most Corsican of the Corsican cities

Standing on a rocky promontory overlooking the Rizzanese valley, Sartène was baptised “the most Corsican of Corsican towns” by the writer Prosper Mérimée. The contrast between its intimidating architecture and the friendliness of its small, town centre is surprising.

Its old town is a must-see: mazes of cobbled streets and vaulted ceilings, floral balconies, small shops and traditional restaurants … Don’t miss it.

Rural South Corsica

Mountain side

  • Zonza: At the foot of the “Bavella Needles” in the center of the Alta Rocca massif, Zonza offers a real taste of Corsicas wild mountains.
  • Ospédale: this small village offers a haven of peace not far from the town of Porto Vecchio: gentle walks and daydreaming are on the agenda.
