24h to discover the best of Calvi

8:00 First, wake up gently. Have a good and healthy breakfast on the shaded terrace of your villa. At the Domaine, we deliver every morning fresh bread and pastries straight to your door.

9:00 Get ready for a morning of cultural and historical discoveries: audio guides are available at the Tourist Office on the marina to visit at your own pace the emblem of Calvi: its Citadel. Walk its old and paved streets, learn about the history of Calvi and its fidelity to Genoa the Italian, the imprint of Christopher Columbus through the whole town, the English invaders and his famous Admiral Nelson and regularly stop on the different panoramic views to admire the Big Blue and the Gulf of Calvi.
Children also benefit from an audio guide and will be able to discover the heritage through a treasure hunt through the Upper Town.

12:00 Hungry ? Let’s head back downtown and have lunch on the beach of Calvi, enjoy a splendid view of the Citadel you just visited, and a fresh prepared dish, feet in the sand.

14:00 At the warmest hours of the day, prefer relaxation on the beach sunbeds offered (special deal of Villas Mandarine, talk to us). Remember to stay protected from the UV and do not hesitate to put sunscreen on regularly.

16:00 For a thrilling afternoon, pay a visit to the beach neighbor who rents all kinds of floating objects more or less fast: jet ski, buoy, water skiing, paddle, pedalo ... at Calvi Jet.

17:00 Late afternoon, head back to your Villa to enjoy a moment of relaxation, why not have a dip in the pool. An ideal stop is the fine deli L’Orée des Pins, a welcoming staff will advise you on the best appetizers for the traditional French “apéro”.

19:00 Time to get ready for an evening out. At any time, we can organize a babysitting in your Villa for the children.

20:30 In summer, the days are long and it is ideal to admire the sunset from Notre Dame de la Serra Chapel overlooking the bay and the west coast of Corsica. Romanticism guaranteed !

21:00 Get back slowly towards town and have a drink and dinner in the old town or on the beach. We will advise you different restaurants depending on what you feel like having for dinner. Continue the evening strolling in the pedestrian street of Calvi, animated during the evenings of July and August where shops of creators and sellers of all kinds will propose you souvenirs and Corsican products.

22:30 The night goes on, one cannot go to bed unless you’ve had a drink on the famous terrace of Chez Tao, listening to Tao himself playing piano while singing and dance until the end of the night !

.... Now it’s getting late, the sun is almost about to rise on another beautiful day in Calvi, let’s go to bed !
