Porto-Vecchio Travel Guide


Corsica is that unicorn of a destination, a place that is breathtakingly beautiful, yet almost completely “undiscovered” by the general population. It’s a wonderfully romantic island, with steep winding roads, mountainous terrain, and crystal clear turquoise waters – everything you would expect from the center of the Mediterranean Sea.

How to Get to Porto-Vecchio

A direct flight from Paris takes only one and a half hours, and regional service to the south of mainland France is even quicker!

I loved the restaurant La Plage. Cala di lume is another great spot.

Spending a few days here was the perfect end to a hectic week in Basel, and I couldn’t have been sadder to leave this paradise on earth.
