Set off on a stunning journey along Corsica’s splendid south, as you weave your way through otherworldly landscapes of granite coastline and fragrant maquis shrubland, before worshiping the sun along the most sublime beaches of Corse-du-Sud. Explore the sherbet hued heart of Ajaccio and the medieval riches of old town Bonifacio, while savoring the unspoilt bounty of this beautiful garden of an island.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Your sojourn to Corsica will begin with arrival to Ajaccio Airport or the Port of Bonifacio. Your private chauffeur will be there to welcome you before setting off for your exclusive five-star, beachfront stay. This evening you’ll blissfully dine on gourmet creations from your hotel’s acclaimed kitchen, lulled by the soothing sounds of the Mediterranean.

Day 2

Today discover the colorful food market of Ajaccio led by the keen insights of your regional culinary expert, a distinguished cookbook author. The rest of the day will be spent visiting local artisans, including an organic honey producer, a goat farmer renowned for their traditional cheesemaking practices, and a gourmet purveyor of Corsican charcuterie. End your day of epicurean immersion in the noble residence of a storied Corsican family, where you’ll learn about their unique ties to the Bonapartes while delighting in an exclusive aperitif.

Day 3

From Porticcio you will travel southward to your dreamy five-star hideaway nestled in the spectacular mountains of Sartene. Spend the afternoon hiking through the serene beauty of the estate while foraging for wild herbs with the help of a local botanist. Tonight’s dinner will be a celebration of Corsican ingredients artfully reimagined during an exquisite Michelin-starred dining experience.

Day 4

Enjoy a much deserved day of wellness by the sea. Start the day off right with a leisurely morning of signature spa treatments at your estate’s luxurious spa, before spending the day rejuvenating in the warm waters of the Mediterranean at your property’s secluded, private beach with world class beach club.

Day 5

This morning your chauffeur will transport you to Bonifacio for a guided exploration of its 13th-century Bastion de l’Etendard and enchanting medieval Old Town, an atmospheric stunner of cobblestone lanes and lofty pastel dwellings, enclosed by the ancient walls of its citadel. Lunch will be a meal of fresh fish and other coastal specialities along Bonifacio’s seaside promenade, before setting off for your divine five-star hotel situated along Corsica’s exclusive Cala Rossa (Red Cove).

Day 6

Spend a relaxing day at your hotel’s idyllic beach club with unparalleled access to the crystal clear waters of its secluded cove. This evening your chauffeur will arrive to transport you to the scenic Old Town of nearby Porto-Vecchio to delight in an elegant, fine dining experience.

Day 7

Spend a glorious day experiencing the pristine white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio by private boat. Your captain will transport you to some of the gulf’s most stunning coves and peaceful beaches as you delight in free time to swim and sunbathe at your leisure. Along the way, savor a gourmet picnic accompanied by Corsican wine as you take in unforgettable sea views.

Day 8

Bid paradise adieu for now as you depart by chauffeur for Figari Airport in preparation for your return home, or continue onward to Bonifacio where your private boat will be waiting to whisk you away to Sardinia, for the next leg of your Encounter.

    Getaway to Tuscany and Northern Italy
    CountryBred thought of every detail for our trip. We didn't have to think about or worry about anything because they had it all covered by professionals every step of the way. From the chauffeurs, to the private boats, to the ambassadors who were extremely knowledgeable and spoke good English, to the amazing hotels, to the selection of restaurants and wines...WOW!
