Located just 20 minutes by car from Figari, the lovely town of Bonifacio, with its medieval citadel, is one of Corsica’s most coveted attractions. The drive to Sartène takes less than 50 minutes from Figari and is definitely worth the journey: perched on a rock terrace with fantastic views, Sartène is considered to be “the most Corsican of Corsican towns”. Closely packed granite houses afford the town a fortress-like atmosphere. What’s more, centuries-old traditions, such as the Good Friday procession, are held in high regard in Sartène. Food wise, the rich taste of Corsica boasts a host of specialities, such as pork from semi-wild boars and cheese made from ewe’s or goat’s milk.
Whether visiting the mountains or the sea, cycling or hiking, for a beach or family holiday, Corsica promises a blissful getaway for everyone – perfected with predominantly warm and dry weather in summer.
