Sainte Lucie de Porto Vecchio, located 3 minutes from the Via-Mare residence, is one of the best villages in terms of geographical location from where to discover Corsica’s attractions.
Pleasantly located at 55 meters above sea level, this seaside city is appreciated by tourists because of its beautiful sandy beaches, the proximity of seaside resorts such as Porto Vecchio and Sari Solenzara, and the multitude of services that We find there. The beach of St-Cyprien, easily accessible, is also a true marvel to discover. If you enjoy the idleness and tranquility, you will settle with delight on the shore of Capicciola or near the pond of Arasu. The surrounding area is very contrasting, with mountain peaks reaching up to 1480 meters above sea level and the coastal plain with its beaches, coves and coves. Its pleasant climate allows you to enjoy an extended summer season.
All the large municipality of Zonza, of which this village is a part, is characterized by the variety and the beauty of its natural landscapes. Pinarello Bay, a nearby village, will seduce you with its white sand beaches and gulf lined with pine forests. A little further north, at the mouth of the Conca, the superb beach of Fautea stands out with its high Genoese tower to admire the surroundings from another perspective. The Cavu river lends itself well to swimming, especially in its ‘natural pools’ dug by nature. The Bavella Pass with its famous Aiguilles is a must, when visiting this Corsican region. Many marked trails within acres of forest allow walkers to admire its granite cliffs in lace. This mythical place attracts nearly a million visitors a year, arriving from all over the world. A paradise for lovers of beautiful photography! The flanks of these massifs are embellished with cork oak forests as found in the forests of Ospedale and San Martinu.
The proximity of the coastline encourages the practice of a wide range of water sports such as kite surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and others. Mini-cruises, boat trips, big game fishing and boat rentals are offered by the sea in several of the nautical centers mentioned above. Quad biking, canyoning and hiking (with or without a guide) are also part of the activities to practice during your holidays in southern Corsica.
