Pack your bags! Today we take off for South Corsica. This part of the island of Beauty is a magnificent mix of natural treasures, dreamy beaches, prehistoric sites, cities (Ajaccio, Bonifacio, Porto-Vecchio) and architectural treasures.
If you are looking for a place combining marine and mountainous landscapes, South Corsica is certainly what corresponds to your criteria.
South Corsica is full of starred spa hotels. Between all the hotels located in Ajaccio, Bonifacio or Porto-Vecchio you will inevitably find a place where you will want to put your bags for a stay. To accompany you in your escapade, the editors of Unique Hôtel Spa have gone in search of different activities that can be done as a couple, alone, with friends or with family. You will find something for everyone.
Start your stay with a horseback ride from Bonifacio to discover the natural and cultural heritage of this city. During three hours, you will discover the beaches, the cliffs and the scrubland at the rhythm of your horse.
Then, board a boat from Ajaccio or Porticcio and explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Scandola. Escape and unique landscapes will be at the rendez-vous.
Finally, if you are looking for an unusual activity that will remain forever engraved in your memories, the Unique Hôtel Spa team has undoubtedly found the rare pearl. Take a flight over the Gulf of Ajaccio in a helicopter. For 20 minutes, let yourself be amazed by breathtaking landscapes, white sandy beaches, the view of the port, the boats and simply the island.
Recharge your batteries and relax in enchanting surroundings by laying down your towel on one of the beaches of South Corsica. The editors of Unique Hôtel Spa recommend the Palombaggia and Santa Giulia beaches in Porto-Vecchio, the Rondinara beach in Bonifacio or the Capo di Feno beach in Ajaccio. If you wish to relax far from the crowd and in deckchairs with a view of the sea, we advise you to opt for the private beach of the Oasis Santa Giulia. A little extra: you will enjoy an exceptional landscape and atmosphere.
Then, if you are more interested in hammam, jacuzzi, swimming pool, treatments, massages, we know of many starred hotels that offer this type of service. We advise you with closed eyes the Hotel Spa des Pêcheurs in Bonifacio. In their wellness area you will find many beauty treatments and massages. The wellness center of the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Ajaccio Bay, the Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa sea & spa and the Hotel Version Maquis Santa Manza with its spa by Clarins, offer a range of facilities in extraordinary environments for your relaxation. The same goes for Grand Hôtel de Cala Rossa, Hôtel Don César in Porto-Vecchio and the Capu Biancu establishment in Bonifacio.
During your stay, you will inevitably taste Corsican culinary specialties such as figatellu, lonzu, coppa, brocciu, fiadone and much more. Indulge yourself during your vacation and go taste these wonders in gourmet restaurants. Among those we know, we recommend the Casadelmar in Porto-Vecchio or A Nepita in Ajaccio. Don't forget to book in advance !
Don't forget to visit the villages of South Corsica. Piana, Zonza, Sainte-Lucie-de-Tallano or Tizzano will offer you sceneries worthy of a postcard.
South Corsica is also a cultural land. You will find the National Museum of the Bonaparte House and the Fesch Museum in Ajaccio, the Alta Rocca Museum in Levie and the Departmental Museum of Corsican Prehistory and Archaeology in Sartene.
To help you in the organization of your vacations, the team of Unique Hôtel Spa has elaborated a program around the city of Bonifacio. For your accommodation, we recommend you to book a room for a few nights in the Hotel Spa des Pêcheurs in Bonifacio. All the rooms of this hotel overlook the sea, which is normal, the hotel being located on a small island off Bonifacio.
After your arrival on Corsican soil or your first night in your hotel, we advise you to discover the wonders of Bonifacio, an emblematic city in Corsica. During your morning, stroll through the cobbled streets of this port city, stroll along the port and stop at the citadel. At noon, we suggest you have lunch at the Da Passano restaurant. Then relax on the white sandy beach of your hotel, which you will have reached by private shuttle. If you feel like it, you can take a first dive in the archipelago of the Lavezzi islands. At the end of the day, after all these activities, treat yourself to a wellness break in your hotel's wellness center. You will have the choice between treatments, massages or a moment of relaxation in the sauna, the thalasso Jacuzzi pool or the outdoor pool.
After your night's rest, board a boat to reach the Bouches de Bonifacio international marine park. Caves, cliffs, creeks and the nature reserve of the Lavezzi islands will pass before your eyes. Breathtaking landscapes await you. On your return, relax on the beach of Rondinara.
On day 3, take some time for yourself and just enjoy your stay on Cavallo Island, the view of the Lavezzi Islands and the calmness around you.
To sum up, South Corsica will dazzle you with its starred spa hotels on the cliffside or facing the sea, its nature reserves, its sumptuous beaches, its turquoise waters, its towns or villages with undeniable charm such as Bonifacio, Ajaccio, Porto-Vecchio, Sartene or Porticcio. One thing is certain, from your first moment on the island of Beauty, you will not want to leave.
Book your next vacation in a spa hotel in Corsica. Dazzle, nature and relaxation will be the key words of your stay.
