Highlights & discovery

Corsica does not seem very big but getting from one place to another can take a longer time than one imagines because of the hilly relief and of the kind of road on the island. Les Terrasses de Rondinara is nicely located to allow you to enjoy your stay without spending too much time on the road.
 
In fact, not only the estate is close enough from the beach to walk there and the villas are surrounded by a magnificent landscape including preserved scrubland, turquoise water and red rocks, but Rondinara is also the right spot to tour around the south of Corsica.
 
Regarding towns and marinas, both Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio are about a twenty-minute drive from Rondinara and it is easy enough to reach Sartène, Propriano or Solenzara. There you will find historical walls, open-air markets where to get local cheese and myrtle alcohols, popular bars and Corsican restaurants, one very famous night club in Porto Vecchio and the beautifully white cliffs in Bonifacio to admire from a path or from a boat.
 
The beaches are many in the area, all of them incredibly beautiful: Santa Giulia, Palombaggia or Pinarello in direction of Porto Vecchio, Piantarella, La Tonnara near Bonifacio. You will go there to swim, to eat fish in a beach restaurant, to admire a Genovese tower, to kite-surf, to wind-surf, to scuba-dive or to ride a horse in the morning. And let’s not forget that the sanctuary of the Lavezzi islands is close enough and that you need to sail less than an hour to taste the Italian-Sardinian culture in Sardinia.
 
Further from the coast and in the mountains, the great views from L’Ospedale, the blessed coolness in Alta Rocca and the natural pool of Conca are all about a 45-minute drive from Rondinara. Driving a little further you can taste local cold cuts and Corsican soup in Zonza or Levie, you can hike near the Bavella peaks or to the Piscia di Gallo fall or to the natural pools in Purcaraccia, you can swim in the Solenzara River and you can discover the torrean civilisation  with the sculpted monoliths in Tizzano or with the Casteddu d’Araghju.
