Visit the small village of Cargèse
A popular Corsican tourist destination for families, Cargèse is a seaside resort. From its atypical history, the village has preserved two churches, one Catholic and the other Orthodox: a rare configuration, to which it owes its unique physiognomy.
Between palm and olive trees, on a promontory overlooking the sea and just a few coves from the calanques of Piana and the Gulf of Porto, Cargèse is a great place to live and stay.
Cargèse: a village to discover
On the island’s west coast, Cargèse is a picturesque Corsican village with a Mediterranean feel. Its charming marina and brightly-fronted houses offer the perfect setting for a vacation on the Isle of Beauty.
