La Meridionale

La Méridionale operates numerous weekly sailings between the south of France and the island of Corsica, in the Mediterranean Sea.

La Compagnie Méridionale de Navigation was founded in 1931, when Henri and Félix Rastit married the daughters of a ship owner called Gianonni de Cassano in Balagne, rebranding to simply 'La Méridionale' in 1998. First focussing on freight deliveries, the company eventually established a passenger link from mainland France to Corsica in 1988. They became the first French ship-owner in the Mediterranean, running passenger services, to obtain international quality certifications in 1996, while they were also awarded for the implementation of an Environmental Management System in 2009.

The ferries sailing to and from Corsica are named Piana, Girolata and Kalliste, carrying approximately three hundred thousand passengers each year, and over a hundred thousand vehicles to the towns Ajaccio, Bastia and Propriano twelve times a week. On-board you will find all the necessaries for a pleasant voyage, with friendly staff, quality French cuisine prepared from fresh produce, large promenade decks, Corsican music, spacious cabins and a cinema.

  • "Great ferry crossing"

    Really enjoyed our overnight sailing on the Girolata. Very good looking ship, comfortable cabin, friendly staff and good food and drink. Being able to board and access our cabin 2 hours before we sailed was a bonus.
