If there's one place where the sea and mountains come together to form a harmonious whole, it is Corsica. The ancient Greeks called it Kallisté, “the most beautiful”, and it is undoubtedly the greenest and most varied of all the islands in the Mediterranean. The sea and the wind reign supreme on Corsica, with curving sandy beaches giving way to colourful rock faces inhabited solely by seagulls: from the red of Scandola, which can only be reached by boat, to the dazzling white of Bonifacio which reflects the turquoise water, offering a unique experience to those who sail into its centuries-old port.
Corsica is like one big nature reserve, with its emerald green mountain lakes fringed by larch forests, vast vineyards and thick, aromatic Mediterranean vegetation. Corsica is a mountainous island, or rather a mountain in the middle of the sea. It has more than 120 peaks of over 2000 metres, which are snow-capped throughout winter. Corsica has an astounding cultural heritage in its ancient menhirs and the castles of the Genoan strongholds scattered along its coast. In short, Corsica is a paradise.
