SUMMER IS HERE!

HOLIDAYS

I can't wait for the change of scenery, the warm sand, the laughter and the festivities!

The season we've been looking forward to is finally here! Relaxation is the name of the game! It's the perfect time to get away from it all and splash around in the crystal-clear waters that contrast with the sparkling sands of our beaches. 

Get ready for lots of laughter! From the children who are happy to splash you, to the girlfriend who laughs at seeing her lover puff out his chest Aldo Maccione-style, to the gang of friends who are laughing their heads off at being shaken in a towed buoy... carefree fun is guaranteed!

And then there's the sea air... What a pleasure it is to enjoy a refreshing ice cream on the warm sand, to sit on the shady terrace of a gourmet paillotte, or to toast an aperitif... nustrali while dancing with your feet in the sand to the sound of live guitar and song!

The season

Summer in Corsica is an explosion of sunshine and heat. Temperatures are high and the days are sunny. It's the perfect season to enjoy long evenings, lively festivals and Corsican summer cuisine.

good to know

There's no denying that Portivechju is a busy place in summer and that parking spaces can sometimes be hard to find... Don't panic, it's summer and there's plenty of transport on offer!

The beach, the mountains, the villages, the port, the upper town, the airport - there's a solution for every destination: regular bus services, beach shuttles, A Citadina, A Berlina, taxis, etc... to meet your needs!

And last but not least, by taking this eco-responsible step, you're limiting your impact on the environment!
