Corsica is a wildly beautiful French island, possessing miles of untouched coastline, beautiful bays, white sandy beaches and majestic mountains. The clear waters surrounding the island make snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing popular. Unspoiled and uncrowded, Corsica’s attractions remain a relative secret. The picturesque ports and old-towns provide a wonderful blend of history, music and hearty Corsican cuisine.
Just South of Corsica, belonging to Italy, is Sardinia, with soft white sand beaches, silver granite cliffs along the rocky coastline, and a lush, green mountainous interior. The sea turns to turquoise in the shallows and boasts some of the best dive sites in Europe, as well as secluded bays for water sports. Discover the chic boutiques and exclusive restaurants in the glamorous resorts of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo.
The French Riviera has been a fashionable resort since the late 18th century and has also attracted its fair share of artists such as Renoir, Matisse and Picasso; all of whom appreciated the climate, clear light, and bright colours.
Stretching from Cassis to Menton, along the Mediterranean Coast through the famous towns of Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Cannes and of course St Tropez, the Côte d’Azur today is a playground for the wealthy and famous, attracted by the climate, cuisine and sophistication.
