(Very) secret addresses of the Isle of Beauty

4 wonderful addresses on the road to the Corsica Classic, a regatta of old rigging that will sail along the Corsican coast between 23 and 31 August.

1 – Casanera de la Signoria SPA, Calvi

Le Spa Casa Nera

Palms as far as the eye can see, the Monte Cinto chain in the distance, black and white and treatments made up solely of Corsican plants imagined by the delicious Marie Ceccaldi. Happiness. Bonifato Forest Road, 20260 Calvi

Where and when to be there to see the boats passing by: On Sunday 23 August at noon, take a break in the port of Calvi to observe the departure of the 40 traditional yachts from the main quay!



2 – The Master Glacier Pierre Geronimi, Sagone

The creator of seawater sorbet for Alain Ducasse, Veuve Clicquot Champagne sorbet and takeaway ice creams at Fouquet’s Barrière is him. In Sagone, it offers the best iced delights in the world. The hardest part is to choose between Iranian black lemon, Tomato basil, myrtle or Corsican saffron. Centre Sagone, sur la route principale, 20118 Sagone

Where and when to be there to see the boats go by: The armada of the regatta Corsica Classic pwill assert in front of the terrace of the mythical glacier off the coast of Sagone on Monday August 25 at around 4pm, just in time to taste it!

3 – The beach of Santa Giulia, Porto-Vecchio

La Plage de Santa Giulia

It is one of the most beautiful on the island: white sand and crystal clear water. Cocktails to sip at the ultra-design hotel Moby Dick at sunset. The foot!

Where and when to be there to see the boats go by: on Friday 29 August the wooden sailboats will be at anchor in front of Santa Giulia beach to attend the Porto Vecchio Festival with a concert program on the plahia!

4 – L’hôtel des Pêcheurs, Cavallo

L'Hôtel des Pêcheurs


We go there from Piantarella beach where windsurfers and kitesurfers hide from tourists in the middle of summer. The journey alone is exotic. Arrived on the island, no car, but golf carts only. There, at the hotel des pêcheurs, we find the surmounted charm of the Italian coast (almost the national language on the island). Its private beach surrounded by rocks like Seychelles is worth all the long hauls in the world! Cavallo Island, 20169 Bonifacio.

Where and when to be there to see the boats pass: Thursday afternoon, August 28 and Saturday, August 30 will be the opportunity to see the old ladies pass off the island of Cavallo.
