Last summer, while I needed to decide quickly with my friends where to go on holiday for the mid-August festive days, we decided to try Corsica- because none of us had ever visited. As you may remember we fell in love with it very quickly and we promised to return this year. Well, that promise was kept a couple of weeks ago.
This time we decided to go south-east and to visit the area of Porto Vecchio: I can’t describe the perfection of this wonderful week spent there. Where should I start? Maybe from the most amazing beaches and sea that I’ve seen there: every day was such a great experience and when we thought we couldn’t find a better beach the day after was even more amazing than the day before. I should also mention that the weather was amazing, the beaches were almost desert, the prices were great as we were in low-season and snorkeling was on the daily list. We switched the nightlife for a good run after a whole day at the sea and a handmade dinner, sometimes for a tasty Corsican dinner.
I tried to make a recap of the beautiful beaches that I visited by taking a picture in each of them!
Day One: at Saint Cyprien beach (wearing a vintage Mexican embroidered shirt, Zara sweatpants, Marc by Marc Jacobs straw bag, Roxy flip-flops)
Day Two: at Santa Ghjulia beach (wearing Topshop Hawaiian shirt, Freddy sweatpants, Roxy flip-flops, Tom Ford sunglasses)
Day Three: amazing boat tour of Bonifacio and the wonderful natural reserve of the Lavezzi Island (wearing Topshop red dress)
Day Four: at Palombaggia beach (wearing Kor a Kor shirt, Zara trousers, Roxy flip-flops, Marc by Marc Jacobs straw bag, Tom Ford sunglasses)
Day Five: at Rondinara beach (wearing Zara tee and trousers, Roxy flip-flops, Marc by Marc Jacobs straw bag, Tom Ford sunglasses)
Day Six: at Cala Rossa beach (wearing Zara tee, Topshop trousers, Tom Ford sunglasses)
Day Seven: at Pinarello beach (wearing Topshop dress and Tom Ford sunglasses again)
Here’s a tip: if you want to visit the Island and you are a vintage lover: in Porto Vecchio every Sunday morning there are lovely car boot sales and small vintage markets all around the town: ask the locals for more information (and great fun)!
Do you understand now why I love this island so much? Plus, it feels like home and I love speaking French all day… I’m already in need of a swift return! Corsica rules!
