About Figari

Gateway to the island birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte

Corsica, today, is more likely to play host to visitors seeking undiscovered France than historians seeking more about Josephine. Base yourself in Figari and you'll be getting away from it all. With a different, and slower pace of rural life on offer, but all the delights of coastal Corsica just a quick hop away.

Hotels in Figari

Figari Airport provides easy access to two of Corsica's prime attractions - the winding backstreets of Bonifacio, and the beaches and resorts of Porto-Vecchio, both of which sit just over 20km away. The small village of Figari itself, a little way inland, offers limited accommodation. Bonifacio, by contrast, boasts the likes of the Hotel Maora Village (Route de Santa Manza), just 300m from the coast, while Porto-Vecchio's top picks include Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa (Route de Cala Rossa) and Les Bergeries de Palombaggia (Route de Palombaggia), both of which offer beachfront luxury.

Shopping in Figari

Porto-Vecchio has been dubbed Corsica's answer to St Tropez, so if you're looking for trendy boutiques and fashion outlets, you'll be in luck. The majority of these are located in the Old Town, where as well as high-end clothing and footwear you'll also find souvenirs, food items and gifts. Most hotels and resorts also have well-stocked souvenir shops. Down in Bonifacio, chic boutiques are also easy to come by - it attracts more visitors than any other town on the island, so you can expect the full range of tourist-friendly goods, both traditional and otherwise.

Food & Drink in Figari 

There are some superb seafood restaurants to be found in this corner of Corsica, not least in Bonifacio at the U Capu Biancu (Route Canetto), where local ingredients are combined with the produce of the hotel's own vegetable and herb gardens. Or try Porto-Vecchio at Tamaricciu (Plage de Palombaggia), perched right on the beach and serving a none-more-fresh catch of the day. A good choice for classic Corsican home cooking is Auberge Le Licetto (Route du Phare de Pertusato, Bonifacio), while the pleasingly named Kissing Pigs (15 quai Banda del Ferro, Bonifacio) is right on the dock and has a strong reputation.

Events in Figari

Festival du Reve

April

Also known as "Scen'e Sonniu", this four-day festivity draws street artists and performing troupes from around the continent, resulting in a diverse, colourful occasion that can be enjoyed by early season visitors to Porto-Vecchio. Many of the performances are child-friendly.

Les Toiles Du Court

June

An annual international festival of short films, Les Toiles Du Court takes place across five different parts of Corsica, including the Figari region. It's a celebration of the often overlooked art of short, but finely crafted, cinematic works.

Festival Tango de Bonifacio

September

First held in 2011, Bonifacio's annual tango festival has already become a success, attracting well-known dancers, DJs and tango musicians from across the globe. The event also incorporates a number of side attractions, including films and exhibitions.

Tour de Corse Historique

October

A car rally that draws numerous motorsport enthusiasts to the island, the notoriously dangerous Tour de Corse takes place each year. It is held mainly on switchback mountain roads close to Ajaccio, but lays on a spectacle for much of the island.

Nautic & Musique

October

A sailing regatta and arts festival in one package, Nautic & Musique combines stories of sailors and seafarers with lively stage performances, wandering musicians and nine days of salty festivities. A great time to visit Bonifacio.
