Visit Sartene

This city inspired Prosper Mérimée to write one of his books, and it is easy to understand why, as, perched so high above the Monte Rosso and overlooking the Rizzanese valley, it is stunningly beautiful.

Its granite constructions give it an edge-of-the-world air. Nearby, discover the archaeological site of Cauria, an impressive collection of menhirs and dolmens.

Then take the baths at Caldane, a few kilometres away: this slightly sulphurous hot spring has therapeutic and relaxing properties. The water comes to the surface at 38°C (100°F), and the baths are arranged in blocks of granite surrounded by nature: this is a wellness experience that should not exceed 20 minutes a day.

Next, enjoy breath-taking views from the Jardin de l'Échauguette, a friendly restaurant by the ramparts. Fine dining and a superb view may both be savoured in the shadow of this lush green garden.
