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.
The French town of Toulon lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the east of Marseille in the Var department of Provence. The town is located around a rocky bay and is sheltered by the rocks of 'Faron" which are topped by ancient fortifications. Due to its sheltered position the town's harbour has developed into a large harbour and is home to the French Naval fleets. Visitors to the town will enjoy strolling around the Old Town which is characterised by a number of restored buildings and narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. A popular attraction in the town is The Arsenal of Toulon which dates back to the time of Henry IV and was inaugurated in 1680. It is entered via a 1738 portico and contains many paintings, such as the beautiful picture by Antoine Morel Fatio (19th century) called 'The port of Toulon in 1854', there also paintings by Emil Mathon, with the 'Retour de l'Admiral de Courbet aux cendres salins d’ Hières'; Vincent Cordouan and the 'Combat de Vaisseau, the Romulus, 13 fevrier 1814', and by J. Vernet is 'Les Vues des Ports de France'.
