Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Porto-Vecchio, Corsica, France. Corsica nearest airport is Airport Figari. The beaches around Porto-Vecchio are simply stunning and count the world-famous Palombaggia and Santa Guilia amongst their number. All have pearly white sand and glittering turquoise sea, surrounded by lush countryside. With shallow waters, they are ideal for swimming.

In the heart of the Mediterranean, just south of Italy, lies the French island of Corsica (also known as “Kaliste” in Greek, meaning ‘the most beautiful). It is a wild and untouched jewel just over an hour’s flight from Paris. As global travelers, Destination Namaste can attest that there is something magical about this place that leaves visitors in awe of its raw and powerful beauty.

Corsica is a spectacular granite mountain in the sea, allowing for a vast variety of landscapes from the tip of its summit, to the edge of the sea. For nature lovers it is nirvana. With breathtaking landscapes, an abundance of natural rock formations, a multitude of hiking trails in the "maquis" (a type of fauna and flora which smells heavenly and of which many essential oils are made of and that can only be found in Corsica) it will enliven your senses.

It offers white sandy beaches where you can find solitude, and limitless time and space; a perfect place for yoga lessons, sacred hikes, stand up paddle boarding and more. A true hidden treasure that's a natural beauty where Destination Namaste would like to preserve and share with you in the most conscious and respectful way possible to travel. Join Destination Namaste for a once in a lifetime experience on an island well worth discovering.
