About Ile Rousse
Ile Rousse (which means red island) is on the noth-west coast of Corsica. It was founded by Pasquale Paoli in 1758, with the intention of creating a port not controlled by the Genoese. Lying 20 kilometres north-east of Calvi, Ile Rousse is in a splendid setting, which attracts many visitors, tourism having surpassed the port as the key activity for the town. With a reasonable beach to the south at Plage de Rindara, and small rocky islands to the north, it offers many attractions for visitors. The 18th and early 19th century architecture of the town, includes some attractive buildings. Ile Rousse has proved popular with tourists thanks to its beautiful white beaches, its exceptional climate, and an abundance of bars and restaurants.

The country has some 1,800 miles of coastlines to enjoy.
The weather changes frequently throughout the year as the Atlantic influences the climate of the western coastal areas from the Loire to the Basque region. Expect a mild climate and frequent rain; however, summers can be very hot and sunny. Visit the south of France, where you can enjoy the warm Mediterranean climate throughout the whole Riviera. Alternatively head inland to the French slopes of the Pyrenees or the Alps for some of the world's best skiing throughout the winter.
