Situated at the very heart of the Balagne, in Corsica's olive oil capital, Ile-Rousse is worth a visit for a feel of authenticity, or to simply enjoy the activities of this popular seaside resort.
Although the island is considered one of the summer hotspots in the Mediterranean for many Europeans and overseas visitors, the island has much more to offer than just sea and sunshine.
As well as Calvi or Saint-Florent, Ile-Rousse is the perfect place to come across some of the best local producers of Corsican delicacies.
When rugged landscapes, sea views and gastronomy are all reunited in one place, in a totally relaxing atmosphere to crown it all, this truly becomes the perfect recipe to a successful holiday.
