Our Region Residence Arco Plage Propriano Corsica

Ideally located halfway between the most beautiful sites, from your Résidence Arco Plage you will be able to explore our magnificent region, its sandy beaches and its mountains. Let yourself be carried away by its contrasts and beauty.

Olmeto
Olmeto

Between Filitosa and Propriano is a typical Corsican village clinging to the mountain. It has preserved a personality which you will discover while wandering the steep alleyways, with their stone houses and tile roofs.

Places to visit: the Baracci baths, ancient Roman thermal hot water and sulfurous baths, the old Capucins convent, the Église Sainte-Hélène church built in the ninth century.

Also of interest: the house where Colomba Carabelli, the famous heroine of the novel by Prosper Mérimée, died.

Olmeto is also home to a succession of heavenly beaches and creeks, which extend between Propriano and Porto Pollo.

Propriano
Propriano
A fishing village founded by the Genoese in 1640, over time Propriano has become a very l and touristy small seaside station equipped with a dynamic commercial and pleasure-boating port. It benefits from a privileged location at the back of the Gulf of Valinco , between the sea and the mountains. The backcountry and the sandy beaches are magnificent. The environment is ideal for alternating walks and bathing.
Filitosa
Filitosa
For nearly 8000 years, Filitosa has sheltered the hunters of the Neolithic period, the stone huts built by the farmers and shepherds of the Bronze Age, a castellu (fortified town), then the torres (circular monuments resembling the nuraghi sardes ). You will be won over by the stationary warriors, all called “Filitosa”, granite giants measuring 3 m high.
Scandola et les Calanques de Piana
Scandola et les Calanques de Piana

Scandola is the pearl of Corsica . Created in 1975, this natural reserve protects 900 land hectares and 1000 marine hectares.

Its volcanic origin, and the work done by water and wind offer a breathtaking countryside, with steep cliffs, wild red rocks and completely unspoiled creeks.

The coastline is almost impossible to reach on foot. Judge for yourself: barely 3 km inland, the mountains have already reached 1000 m in altitude.

What remains are boats (ferries from Calvi, Galéria and Porto ). But the area is both prized (in the summer) and very regulated, between reduced speeds, and diving and fishing prohibited.

But it's worth the effort: the depths are filled with fish, and just a few cable's lengths from the shore, it is not uncommon to come across a group of dolphins.

Campomoro
Campomoro
To the south of the Gulf of Valinco , this small fishing town offers a lovely beach at the back of a sheltered cove. Its Genoese tower dating back to 1586 is the largest of the Corsican coastline. Restored in 1986, it is now the property of the Conservatoire du Littoral. The top of this tower offers a superb view of the Gulf of Valinco , and at its base are artistically sculpted rocks. End your visit to the tower with a coastal exploration on a path extending along the coastline in the direction of Conca.
Roccapina
Roccapina

Halfway between Sartène and Bonifacio, the Roccapina rock, still called the “Lion of Roccapina”, is an extraordinary site.

This walk will lead you into a disarray of pink granite above the turquoise blue sea and a white sandy beach.

Ajaccio
Ajaccio

Ajaccio , imperial city.

The city's fame is, of course, attached to Napoleon Bonaparte, who was born there on August 15, 1769 , but also to Tino Rossi, who so giftedly sang about his island.

This commune, which is the regional capital of Corsica , is lined with heavenly beaches and creeks extending over the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio , between Granova and the Iles Sanguinaires. These islands, which stand as sentries to the gulf's entrance, are bathed in a purple light before the sun sets in the sea.

Coti Chiavari
Coti Chiavari
Not far from an ancient prison built under the second empire, the village is arranged in terraces. It offers a superb view of Ajaccio , while its enormous eucalyptus forest is a setting for pleasant walks.
Bonifacio
Bonifacio

Bonifacio has an exceptional location at the southern end of Corsica dominating the superb marine site of the “mouths”.

Between limestone and granite, the cliffs form a vast natural façade facing the archipelagos of the Lavezzi and Cerbicales islands, famous for their exceptional sea beds.

Bonifacio extends over 70 km of coastline and has many beaches with crystalline waters, including Rondinara, Balistra, the Gulfs of Santa Manza, Canette and Petit Sperone…

Porto-Vecchio
Porto-Vecchio
Sheltered at the back of a gulf 9 km long, Porto-Vecchio is built on a hill towering over the salt marsh. The old town, which developed within high fortifications, seduces visitors with the picturesque charm of its narrow streets, the austere high fronts of its houses and its ancient ramparts pierced with a Genoese door. The white sandy beaches, often shaded by beautiful umbrella pines have given the region its reputation. Among the best known, we can cite the beaches of Palombaggia, Santa Giulia…
L'Alta Rocca
L'Alta Rocca
Alta Rocca is a mountainous region. Between the picturesque mountainside villages, the striking nature is mixed with prehistoric remnants. In Lévie, a museum and the castellu de cucuruzzu provide a first interesting vision of Corsica 's history. All around the forests are green oaks and laricio pines like in the Ospedale forest. But the beauty of this wild nature reaches its highest level in the regional park between the Bavella pass and Solenzara.
Bavella Pass and needles
Bavella Pass and needles
Bavella, with its granite needles, in a top location in the Corsican mountain. And for good cause: as massif, pass and forest all at once, it encapsulates all of the island's specificities in itself, namely continually intense and colors from the brightest red to the darkest gray, all sprinkled with enormous laricio pine forests.
