Brief description of the holiday
Moving by boat along these marvelous coasts, we will have the opportunity to visit these characteristic small fishing ports and the ancient Còrsi villages , whose beauty will make us the setting for a dinner or a romantic walk.
We will sleep at anchor in the most enchanting places, or we will moor in the harbor to visit the places and enjoy an excellent aperitif and a tasty fish dinner.
Even when we are still at anchor it will always be possible to get off the ground with the rubber dinghy (our eco-tender with electric motor).
Life on board is relaxed and fun, making new friends and working together to manage common life. Who wants to can enjoy the sun and those who want to learn, will find in our skipper a valid teacher who will gladly give the helm to those who want to try their hand at it, supporting it with valuable advice.
The week will take us to visit many places, we will be able to choose the itinerary together and the skipper will check that there are weather and marine safety conditions to take us where we want.
On board, everyone can freely choose whether to relax and enjoy the holiday in complete relaxation, or whether to try to get in the game by experimenting with maneuvers or taking the helm (with skipper supervision).
Everyone is asked only to participate in the life on board , everyone as he wants and can do, in an atmosphere of fun and mutual collaboration. A box will be created on board to cover the costs of the galley, ports and fuel.
This is the general program: Boarding will take place on Friday afternoon, after getting acquainted, we will organize our galley (we will decide what we want to eat and we will do the shopping together).
In the evening, if the guests want it, the skipper will propose to have dinner in one of the little restaurants of the town, where around the table, pampered by the excellent Ligurian cuisine, we will make friends.
On Saturday morning, after breakfast we will leave the moorings to set sail towards our destination. Sailing towards Corsica, the Giraglia islet will welcome us upon arrival.
From here we can choose together whether to continue along the west coast, where we will meet Centuri Port , a small and very pretty fishing port. Here the local specialty is lobster tasting, which many restaurants will be pleased to offer you. We will sail along the coast meeting the beautiful bay of Marina dei Giottani and the incredible black beach of Nonza.
Continuing we will meet Saint Florent . Originally a fishing port, today it is a popular holiday resort due to its proximity to the famous Patrimonio vineyards and to one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean coast, the magnificent Saleccia located at the center of the Désert des Agriates , which will be the destination of a beautiful trip.
The Désert des Agriates is a wild and uncrowded area. The human presence in the area is very limited, the bays and gulfs of the desert can only be reached by sea or by long dirt roads. At the end of the desert is Ile Rousse, the last stop on our cruise.
The landing is scheduled for the following Friday morning, when we will return to the base after a splendid night sail, which will allow us to know the magic of sailing under the stars.
