The city of Porto Vecchio is located in the Corse-du-Sud department of France, on the island of Corsica. It is around 65 km to the east of Sartene and epitomises Corsica's reputation as the "island of beauty and of contrasts". The fashionable city, sometimes known as the "St. Tropez" or Corsica, is a popular tourist destination, especially with Italians, and is the perfect destination to relax or to party.
To ensure tranquillity, then head off to one of the island's remote coves or head up into the mountains and take in the beautiful and varied terrain. One of the many attractions of Porto Vecchio is its proximity to the glorious Alta Rocca mountainous region of Corsica. A short drive from the city will take visitors into the spectacular mountain of the region where activities such as hiking, rock climbing, fishing, horse riding, quad biking are possible. For a more sedate way of passing time in the mountains why not take a picnic and relax or take a dip in one of the many crystal clear rock pools.
Ferry services from the town's port depart to Marseille and Toulon on the French mainland.
Golfo Aranci is the name of gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the port here, the town is blessed with excellent connections by ferry to the rest of Italy and is only a few kilometers from Porto Rotondo and 15 km from Olbia. There are disagreements as to the exact meaning of Golfo Aranci's name. One meaning has it that the name stems from a shipwreck that was full of oranges and the other, and to some the most convincing explanation, is linked to the Sardinian term 'granci', which are the crabs that are found in the area.
Visitors to Golfo Aranci also tend to visit the marine reserve that is on the nearby island of Tavolara. Also popular with visitors are the wide range of water sports that are on offer which enables visitors to experience first hand the lovely, warm clear waters that are found off the town's shores. Inland, there is the Cala Moresca pine forest which is easily reached on foot or by bicycle.
There are daily ferries operating from the town's port to Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumincino.
