Cargèse, Corsica

Cargèse is a village in Corsica, to the north of Ajaccio. It sprawls from the top of a hill down to a small harbour. The town is best known for the Cargèse Institute for Physics, just outside to the south, which hosts conferences and summer schools. A bus runs twice a day between Ajaccio and Cargèse. Cargese is tiny: you can comfortably walk anywhere in minutes.

A Greek Orthodox church and a Roman Catholic church face each other across the town. Both churches are active, and share a priest (he has a dispensation). They are also the sites for concerts.The water around Cargèse is lovely, and there are beaches and rocky coasts north and south of the harbor. The surrounding countryside is spotted with paths. If you go north past Plage Perù and follow the signs to the Presqu’île (peninsula), you will find a long, empty strip of land with an old Genovese watch tower on the end. It makes a nice walk in good weather, and takes about an hour and a half to get there from town
