Visit the region


Picturesque fishing and pleasure port. Its history was marked by the settlement of a Greek colony in the 17th century. From these influences, the village retains two complementary religious testimonies, with two churches facing each other, one in the Latin rite, the other in the Byzantine rite. The village is a pleasant seaside resort, with sea air and a Mediterranean atmosphere


Just 45 minutes from Cargèse is the imperial city, birthplace of the emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. You won't need more than a day to explore all the sights this town has to offer.

- The Musée Fesch, which houses the world's largest collection of Italian Renaissance paintings.
- In the same building, you can visit the imperial tomb, where all the members of the Bonaparte family are buried except, of course, the Emperor.
- Still in the same building, but in the other wing, you'll find the library, which contains some wonderful treasures, the oldest of which dates back to 1245 AD.
- The Maison Bonaparte, Napoleon's birthplace, decorated as it was in his time.
- You can't leave the city without visiting the two main squares: the Place De Gaulle, where you'll find a statue of Napoleon surrounded by his four brothers, and the Place d'Austerlitz, dominated by another statue at the top of a grand staircase describing the great innovations and reforms he introduced during his reign.


Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, you'll be blown away by all this beauty.

These rocks, carved out by wind, water and time, have taken on astonishing shapes that you're bound to compare to some kind of animal.

One of the curiosities of the 'Calanches' is to visit them at sunset, when they take on a superb blood-red color.


Classified as a nature reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, access to the reserve is strictly regulated, and we recommend that you contact the tourist office on your arrival to find out about shuttle times from Cargèse.

The reserve is a veritable sanctuary for Mediterranean flora and fauna, and the only access is by sea. You'll also discover the village of Girolata, which has no road access.
