About Porto Vecchio
Porto Vecchio is located in South East Corsica and is the third largest town on the island. As well as the port, Porto Vecchio is a tourist destination in its own right with tourists being attracted to the area's beautiful beaches. In fact, in the summer months the population of the town increases four-fold. Historically, the economy of Porto Vecchio was dependent on salt and became known as the 'city of salt'. Today, the salt marshes are no longer functioning and are home to a variety of wading birds.

France is the largest country in Europe, offering a spectacular variety of scenery, from the mountain ranges of the Alps and Pyrenees to the attractive river valleys of the Loire, Rhone and Dordogne and the flatter countryside in Normandy and on the Atlantic coast. 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.
There is no denying that France is a land of great contrasts, offering an endless choice of enticing places to visit, a rich diversity of landscapes, cuisines, climates and people, with an exceptional cultural heritage.
