D14 : Propriano – Ajaccio

Previous Day Next Day

At mid-morning we leave for the prehistoric site of Filitosa. This large expanse of nature is dotted with statues, remains of megalithic villages and an old quarry from which these sculptures come from. Despite the heat, this walk of about one hour and a half in the middle of large fields and magnificent old trees, is very pleasant.

We set off towards Porto Pollo for a dive in fresh water and unfortunately trouble. Going north to Ajaccio, we follow the coast and its immense crowded beaches.

We arrive at Ajaccio in the late afternoon and are facing a modern city composed with tall buildings with an “unfortunate” architecture . We put our luggages at the Hotel St Charles (contact info) before running off in Old Town for dinner at the restaurant “Estaminet”. A colorful menu including for appetizer some red mullet fillets and sausages, as a main course duck confit and gambas with anise and to finish with the dessert, a cherry clafoutis.
