“L’Île de Beauté”, “the mountains in the sea” and the “biker’s paradise” are all the same expressions for a journey to discover Corsica with its bleu beaches, hilltop villages and astonishing landscapes. Impossible and useless to drive fast, take your time to get enhanced by the charming landscapes, to get in touch with the locals, who appreciate your interest in their valuable island. Another characteristic of Corsica is its gourmet cuisine… Between mountains and see Corsica offers everything to delight the palates of the most adept amateur from secret recipe meats to prestigious shellfish… In brief, if you like riding motorcycle, the scent of the maquis, white sandy beaches, hospitality, unaffected spontaneous moments of pleasure, this journey is for you. See you soon.
