LET YOUR SOUL SING IN THE SUNNY & BEAUTIFUL MEDITERRANEAN COAST OF AJACCIO FRANCE
AJACCIO, CORSICA, FRANCE
Ajaccio is a French commune, prefecture of the department of Corse-du-Sud, and head office of the Collectivité territoriale de Corse (capital city of Corsica). It is also the largest settlement on the island. Ajaccio is located on the west coast of the island of Corsica, 210 nautical miles (390 km) southeast of Marseille.
The original city went into decline in the Middle Ages, but began to prosper again after the Genoese built a citadel in 1492 to the south of the earlier settlement. After the Corsican Republic was declared in 1755 the Genoese continued to hold several citadels, including Ajaccio, until the French took control of the island.
The inhabitants of the commune are known as Ajacciens or Ajacciennes. The most famous of these is Napoleon Bonaparte who was born in Ajaccio in 1769, and whose ancestral home, the Maison Bonaparte, is now a museum. Other dedications to him in the city include Ajaccio Napoleon Bonaparte Airport.

RELAX IN THE NOSTALGIC MEDITERRANEAN COAST
Of all the European beaches we’ve seen, this is still perhaps our FAVOURITE. There is a sort of tranquility and healing in this place. It is perhaps not alot of tourists end up here, or if they do they don’t let the tourists spoil the feel of the place.
If you were Napoleon Bonaparte, you can just quite understand why you would come and heal your soul here from the noise, chaos, and confusion of Imperial France.
Yes, that’s it. This place is HEALING to us both Physically and Spiritually.
This place is the embodiment of lazy, hazy days of Summer.
Can’t wait to go back and explore the whole of the Island on a much longer timeframe, not just for a day.
