Cala Rossa 5* hotel
Porto vecchio - www.hotel-calarossa.com
For sophistication, head to Ajaccio, the capital of Corse-du-Sud and the largest town on the island. As the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, the town boasts plenty of history. Cruise the small boutiques or hang out in the many cafes to soak up the atmosphere of this southern Mediterranean town.
At the very tip of Corsica lies Bonifacio. On this narrow peninsular, the old quarter of Bonifaccio clings to the edge of vertiginous white cliffs and marks it out as one of the most geographically stunning of European coastal towns. From here, Sardinia is only a short distance away.
The Corsican south is quite rightly known for its variety of extraordinary landscapes. Visit the mystical Filitosa, a world-renowned prehistoric site; or walk along many of the wild beaches, such as at Campomoro. Taste the full-bodied reds and whites that hint of Corsican wilderness and wild scrub. Enjoy a round of Golf at the marvellous coastal Sperone course or take a private boat to the Lavezzi islands and stay a night or two at this exclusive resort.
