Ajaccio and the west coast: for unique natural sites
We are now taking you to the Northern part of the west coast, where many little villages will tell you their stories: Tiuccia and its coves, Sagone and its atmosphere between sea and land, Cargèse at 100 metres high, Piana, listed one of the most beautiful villages of France, etc.
Many remarkable sites can be seen on the territory: Porto gulf or Capo Rosso, both listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. If you still have some time left, don’t miss the “calanques” (rocky creeks) of Piana, that you will be able to explore through a hike or with your van!
Want to shake things up a bit and go for a spot of shopping, stroll around the streets or enjoy a drink sitting at a terrace? Burning Ajaccio is ready to welcome you! With its Diamant square and its cafés, Fesch street and its shops, it is a step in your road-trip that you should really not miss.
In the area, you will find many unique natural sites: the Richiusa canyons, the Bracca and Tolla lakes, or the Lava gulf. If you want to have a true taste of the local culture, get back into your campervan and head to the Napoléon Bonaparte museum, or to the Ajaccio market.
Finally, you cannot explore the west coast without exploring the Sanguinaire Islands. This Natura 2000 site is made of 4 small islands on which you can meet rare bird specias: the yellow-legged gull or the puffin.
Grand Valinco, seaside resorts and peaceful villages
Head to the Grand Valinco area, where you will come across many coastal resorts and emblematic sites, between land and sea, mountain and seaboard. If you are disturbed by the touristic fervor of Propriano and you fancy something more peaceful, go for Sartène, a village that is famous for its strong identity and its breathtaking panoramas.
