A Corsica yacht charter blends beautifully the provincial French culture with Italian charm as you hop from island to island on a luxury charter yacht.  Saint Florent is a small town on the coast of northern Corsica. It has a very pretty harbour and a small fort. The location, on a small promontory in a natural bay on the Mediterranean with a backdrop of mountains, the climate and the nearby beaches and scenery all together make Saint Florent a popular resort and tourist destination. 

Moving on to the unique bay of Calvi is spectacular. The mountains tower over the bays and reach heights in excess of 2000 meters. Calvi with its colourful array of buildings, cobbled streets climbing up to a Genoese Citadel and a pine fringed crescent of silver sand stretching as far as the eye can see will delight all on board. 

After Scandola and Girolata, we will anchor at Ajaccio which is the capital of Corsica. A port city on the rugged isle’s western coast, it was the birthplace of French Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte in 1769. Ajaccio is all class and seduction. Commanding a lovely sweep of bay, the city breathes confidence and has more than a whiff of the Côte d’Azur.

The coastal town of Propriano is found on the coast of south-west Corsica, at the head of the Valinco Gulf and north-west of Sartene. Much of the building in Propriano dates from the early 19th century, when the port was established and most of the town constructed.

Not to be missed, the spectacular journey through the Straights of Bonifacio. A narrow entrance hidden at the foot of cliffs opens into the harbour of the ancient fortress town. Its superb location on a narrow peninsula of dazzling white limestone at Corsica’s southernmost point creates a town site unlike any other on the island. Going ashore in Bonifacio will be a delightful experience whether you explore the town on foot or take the local mini-train for a sightseeing trip around town.

Last day at Porto-Vecchio. The epitome of Corsica’s reputation as the “Island of Beauty and of Contrasts”. Known as the “St-Tropez” of Corsica, Porto-Vecchio has become a highly fashionable tourist resort (especially popular with Italians) where visitors can relax, indulge or party the night away.It is equally possible to escape the summer crowds off the beaten track, in a remote cove or along a mountain path, and to enjoy the peace and tranquility in this enchanting and varied landscape.
