Located in the south of Corsica, Porto-Vecchio benefits from a strategic position between sea and mountain which makes it a region to discover or rediscover, a welcoming city of South Corsica where life is good.
Porto-Vecchio is today the largest agglomeration of Freto, although the historic capital is Bonifacio, the former capital of the province of the same name which covered the entire region.
Highly famous for beaches surrounding it (Cala Rossa, Palombaggia, Santa Giulia, etc.), the Genoese city has salt marshes of around ten hectares, now abandoned, which produced around 1 tonnes of salt per year.
Le Critérium International cyclist has been there since 2010.
Le Tour de France 2013 set off for its hundredth edition of Porto-Vecchio, which became the first Corsican city to host a stage of the tour.
