Welcome to Porticcio

City description  

As you approach Porticcio, on Ajaccio Bay, you understand a little more why Corsica is nicknamed the Island of Beauty. 10 miles away from the Imperial City, this green wilderness, between land and sea, takes your breath away with its splendor and natural wealth: a wide beach of white sand framed by brown rock, calm and crystal-clear water and a wholly Mediterranean vegetation... 

Porticcio brings together all the charms of Corsica. With its island beauty, both wild and tranquil, Porticcio is nonetheless an ideal destination for those who love outdoor activities. The more adventurous can try the effervescent excitement of jet skiing, for example, in the bay of Porticcio. More exotic, but equally delightful, why not enjoy an afternoon immersed in a world of silence as you discover the underwater treasures of the Bay of Porticcio. It's a safe bet that its coral reefs, home to a dazzling fauna and flora, will captivate you. Once you've returned to the surface, the Porticcio countryside will bewitch you, if you take the road inland. With this inimitable scent that characterizes the Corsican scrubland, walk all along the waterfront to go and see the two Genoese towers that encircle the bay, a wonderful ecosystem and one that's quite simply unique in the world. An originality that can also be found in the warm and Latin hospitality of the Corsican people. So, take to the road and explore the surrounding scrubland where you'll discover the little villages, so completely steeped in their quaint charm, that earned the island its renown. Grosseto-Prugna for example, is full of surprises with its old stone houses, anchored in a lush valley that's 400 meters above sea level ...
