I would like to tell you about a place that is dear to me. Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea in the south of France and very close to Sardinia. It is part of France and it is a jewel of our country, it is even called “The beautiful Island”.
There is the most beautiful beaches, landscapes, and mountains reunited in a very small piece of earth.
The Corsicans are known for having a very strong character and not appreciate the French of France because they have their own language and way of life, but it is a myth. As long as we respect them, they are very pleasant. I’m not from this island, but since I’m little I go every summer.
There are several cities known in Corsica as Bastia the capital; Ajaccio; Calvi; Porticcio; Porto-Vecchio.
I have been in several parts of Corsica in twenty years but for ten years I am going to the same hotel with my family on a beautiful beach called Pinarello. This beach is in the south of Corsica, near Porto-Vecchio. And on this beach, there is a beautiful little hotel called “The Pinarello”. This place is quiet and luxurious. We can rent boats to see the other beaches, we can do sea activities and especially eat at the Corsican specialty restaurants that are delicious. My favorite restaurant out there is the “Cabanon Bleu”, which is very popular with the French and a lot of celebrities. It is really hard to find by car, they don’t have a website but they have a facebook page. Corsicans are experts in charcuterie and cheese.
This French island is expensive but there are campings and Airbnb like everywhere in the world and I highly recommend you to go there one day. It is paradise on earth.
