Your day by day program

Ajaccio & Les Iles Sanguinaires

Today you have the choice of two different walks: Option one takes you on a cliff path up above Ajaccio, overlooking the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. It's a great way to discover the huge variety of plants that cover the island of Corsica. Option two takes you to the Genoese tower of Parata that dominates the coastal landscape around "Les Iles Sanguinaires".
Night in a 3 star hotel in Ajaccio.

Capo di Muro and the Genoese Tower

Today you will start your journey south with a beautiful drive along the coast to Capo di Muro. Off the beaten track, this is a superb walk that offers beautiful views over the bay of Cacao and the Gulf of Ajaccio, with the impressive Corsican mountains in the distance. You will complete the day by driving to Propriano, where you will stay for the next two nights. On the way, you will have the opportunity to stop at the magnificent (and often deserted) beach of Cupabia or you could visit the prehistoric site of Filitosa.

Campomoro and the garden of winds

A short drive south of Propriano will take you to a charming little hamlet next to the sea. From here the walk takes you around the point of Campomoro, first to the Genoese Tower (these are becoming a feature) before dropping you into a surreal landscape of wind and sea sculptured rocks (known in Corsican as "Tafoni"). The bright white of the curiously shaped rocks contrast dramatically against the azure blue seas and the clear blue skies. This is Corsica at it's best.

You will drive south once more, this time passing through Sartene, "the most Corsican of villages". Every turn in the road brings you an amazing view as you make your way to the southernmost tip of the island. Perched on the chalk cliffs of southern Corsica, the beautiful Bonifacio dominates the sea. The old citadel can be explored with its maze of enchanting cobbled streets. There are two wonderful optional walks for this day , plus a potential option to take a boat and walk on the "Iles de Lavezzi". Don't hesitate to ask us (in advance) to extend your stay here!
