Ideal for Summer Season
Blending class, charm and idyllic natural beauty, the neighbouring Mediterranean islands of Sardinia and Corsica are two of the world’s finest charter destinations. Yet, barely 10 miles apart, both have distinct personalities best discovered on a seven-day yacht charter. The French island of Corsica captivates with its wild coastlines, mountainous national parks, fishing villages and ancient walled towns, while Italian island Sardinia is rich in gorgeous sun-kissed beaches, mystical archaeological sites and high-end dining options

After welcome drinks on board, it's possible to take a short cruise to the beautiful Lavezzi Islands. Swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters or simply relax on the yacht before heading back to Bonifacio.

Relax in Porto VecchioDistance: 50 nm*

Whether you're looking for traditional cuisine to gourmet restaurants, Porto Vecchio has something for you. If you're interested in unwinding in privacy, you may want to take your tender to Hotel Mariosa and relax on their private beach.
Port Vecchio is an interesting port to explore. Similar to Bonifacio, this town has many ancient medieval remnants. Their old town is also perched atop a hill overlooking the port and provides a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean as well as the eastern face of Corsica.
