Setting out from Les Oliviers estate, 8.5kms away you’ll discover the town of Porto-Vecchio. Built on coastal heights, the “City of Salt” overlooks the salt flat scrubland lying before it, and the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio.
With a rich history, it is built inside fortifications inherited from the 16th century, bearing witness to its bellicose past, with a bastion built entirely from stone, which today is an exhibition venue. Taste the island’s typical flavours in the delis, restaurants and wine bars dotted along the streets of the old town, or stroll along these streets on summer evenings for shopping.
the marina and harbour lying at the foot of the citadel invite you to take a sunny break, or enjoy an ice-cream against a backdrop of sail boat masts.
