Porto-Vecchio is a port town on the French island of Corsica. The multitude of things to do in South Corsica make this town the ideal base for exploring the region. The question is not what to do in Porto Vecchio but from where to start! If you're eager to discover this sunny corner of Corsica, embark on a journey for your Porto Vecchio villa rental and prepare to discover this town's many facets along the way. As you arrive at the enchanting Porto Vecchio marina, a wave of serenity takes over: the green is omnipresent and chirpy birdsong echoes in the distance. Somewhere in the backdrop, the old Genoese citadel is peeking on the horizon, and you can almost feel it watching you, inquisitive of the curious guests. Stroll along the meandering narrow streets lined with stone-covered buildings, discover hidden restaurants or a quirky ice cream shop: this port town has retained its old-time charm.
Then head off for an afternoon of seaside exploration, the azure waves calling your name. First stop, the stunning Palombaggia beach of Porto Vecchio, an idyllic nook of fine, golden sand and clear, tranquil water. Further south, the beach of Santa Giulia invites you for breathtaking views of the infinite sea. Stroll along its golden seashore, then stop on the dock and admire the view. Although tomorrow basking in the sweet sun by the pool of your Porto Vecchio villa rental will be a delight, nothing compares to an evening here. When the sun descends over the pine treetops, head back to the Porto Vecchio piazza for a discovery of the local gastronomic craft. As you take a seat at one of the quaint terraces, the waiter knows to bring you only the best Corsican foods. A few moments later a portion of roasted lamb appears, accompanied by some truly aromatic seafood. Later, as you prepare to return to your Porto Vecchio villa rental, take one last look at this enchanting town. The rolling green hills are quiet, the boats are swaying under the dim glow of dusk.
