Summer Wonders | Calvi to Porto Vecchio

Day 1
Calvi to St Florent

Start your journey at Calvi, the port of call for yachts and ships around the European continent. A hub for travelers, Calvi is home to a bustling stretch of cafés, restaurants and bars hugging the coastline. Calvi also offers sandy beaches to the right of the port, accessible by foot or boat. For more privacy, the beach of Algajola Bay is nearby and accessible by your charter.

At St Florent, privacy is a priority. St Florent is a small port with restricted capacity and can accommodate yachts up to 98’ (30m). Whether you bring your charter yacht or tender, St Florent is a must-see with a picturesque downtown directly on the docks. Its history is complex and decorated, as well as its culture. Stop here and enjoy the local cuisine in the warmth of the sun.

Day 2
Scandola to Girolata

An excellent choice for your luxury charter to Corsica, Scandola is a marine reserve dedicated to preserve the integrity of its landscape, coral forests and protected biological microsystems in the bay of Porto. Thanks to local conservation efforts, Scandola is simply breathtaking – an important stop on your luxury charter.

This beauty extends throughout Corsica but is especially emblematic in Girolata. This adorable islet features a small fort built in 1551 by Geronimo de Levante with an adorable town surrounding it. Stop ashore to explore the history and grab a bite at some of the mouth-watering restaurants while there.

Day 3
Girolata to Piana

Known as one of the most beautiful French villages, Piana features a truly unique geological display for charter guests. It boasts gorgeous vertical red granite walls, deep cliff nooks known as Calanques and towering deep turquoise waters. The Calanche de Piana stretch seemingly endlessly, with various rock formations and cliffs to admire as you walk through the trails. These endless views are the perfect addition to your trip to Corsica, with a plethora of cafes and restaurants to finish your day with a delicious taste of the local cuisine.

Day 4
Iles Sanguinaires to Ajaccio

Ajaccio has two beautiful ports: Tino Rossi Basin and the Port de L’Amiraute. Ajaccio is celebrated for its phenomenal local produce market – a beloved spot for luxury charter guests. This beautiful hub is known for being the birthplace of Napoleon, where you can visit the Rue Saint Charles family house museum.

Port de L’Amiraute accommodates small yachts and tenders with quaint spots around town to dine, dance and shop as desired.

Day 5
Ajaccio to Bonifacio

This part of the charter guests’ journey offers three styles of options: golfing at Golfe de Mortoli during fair-weather anchorage, Roccapina’s tiny anchorage with two single houses of Corsican influence, and the port of Bonifacio.
