ON A LUXURY YACHT CHARTER
The unspoiled and wild natural beauty of the second biggest island of the Mediterranean and the Occitan charm of the South of France cannot but make a yacht charter in Corsica a magical one.
Corsica is the third largest island of the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia and one of its most picturesque attractions. Located south-west off southern France, Corsica, a French territory, boasts wild landscapes and a rich artistic and cultural life, offering a unique ambience to those who choose it as the destination of a holiday on a luxury charter.
With an average temperature of 27° C, the weather stays warm and sunny well into October. This makes Corsica the perfect destination of an early fall yacht trip to Northern Corsica from Bastia to Cap Corse, or to the Southern shores, stopping in quaint Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleone Bonaparte, before docking at the exclusive Cavallo. The stretch of land between Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio features the best beaches, but Calvi (the point of departure of a yacht itinerary in Western Corsica) and the Gulf of Valinco are also worth visiting.
Boasting 200 beaches and more than 100 kilometers of coast, Corsica is a natural paradise, where dreamy bays of pearly sand give way to pebbly inlets, perfect to practice kayaking and windsurfing. Those in search of picturesque trekking trails and thrilling scuba diving sessions love the views from The Corsica Regional Nature Park (populated with endangered species) and the Natural Reserves of Bouches of Bonifacio.
The Corsican cuisine offers foodies a mix of Italian and French flavors with distinctive aromas and ingredients. And while fresh fish and seafood are the protagonists of local dishes, there is plenty of interesting meat and dairy options too, as well as delicious desserts like the typical fiadone, a tasty variation of lemon cheesecake!
