Piana

Delightful and very popular, the village of Piana, in the south, has an exceptional setting overlooking the Gulf of Porto. Located at the entrance of the famous Piana Calanques, which each year attract many visitors, it is one of the most popular villages facing as it does the Senino and Scandola peninsulas. Characterized by its many small alleyways, your stay will be devoted to relaxation and discovery. Make sure to visit the Church of Sainte-Marie, a landmark in the center of Piana.

Solenzara

A jewel in the crown of southern Corsica, Solenzara will fire the imagination, and is one of the most beautiful villages of the Island. And for good reason! With an idyllic location between sea and mountains, it has very beautiful white sandy beaches (Scaffa Rossa, Canella...) and aspires more than ever to tranquility. You will see, the landscape is of a rare beauty and the activities on offer will delight every family. Plenty to enjoy your summer vacation, for sure... Whether it's for a weekend or a few weeks, you'll never be bored!

Porto-Pollo

Located in the commune of Serra-di-Ferro just 18 km from Propriano, in southern Corsica, Porto-Pollo establishes itself as a town where life is so good. With stunning views over the Gulf of Valinco, it welcomes every year many tourists looking for beautiful beaches and relaxation. Stroll along the harbor, enjoy a pancake at the Café des Oliviers on the town square, and enjoy the unique smell of the local scrubland… What an appealing program!
