France is beautiful from the sea...

PONANT invites you to take to the sea, without a care in the world, to enjoy a break from reality in a privileged setting, and cast a fresh eye over the infinite riches of the French coastline. As your journey unfolds and depending on the elements, you will enjoy magnificent moments as unique as they are unexpected.

Leaving from Nice, set sail aboard Le Lyrial* for an authentic 7-night cruise and get to the very heart of Corsica, a fascinating island of a thousand fragrances and influences.

Below the Cap Corse mountains and the Agriates desert, the beauty of the landscapes gives Saint-Florent a picture-postcard appearance. The magnificent idyllic beaches that have forged the reputation of the Isle of Beauty, such as the Gulf of Santa-Manza, are complemented by the breathtaking and unspoiled natural landscapes.

From the sea, the chalk cliffs of the Strait of Bonifacio, sculpted by the wind, create a luminous mineral setting enhanced by the deep blue of the sea. The most southerly point of Corsica, Cap Pertusato, meaning “pierced”, announces the presence of a rock that has been perforated through the middle. At this majestic site you will discover a succession of natural caves forged by the sea. 

The sumptuous archipelago formed by the pointe de la Parata and the îles Sanguinaires announces the entrance to the Gulf of Ajaccio. The long line of crests seems to extend the coast like a backbone. Listed as a Grand Site de France and a Natura 2000 area, this coastal landscape at the foot of the mountains is home to exceptional biodiversity adapted to the harsh climate. Here, Nature is the star attraction.

The turquoise waters of the island will satisfy all desires for swimming and nautical activities. Far from the hordes, these unspoiled areas encourage the observation of nature and the practice of sporting activities.

During this trip, you may be lucky enough to see certain species of cetaceans, such as bottlenose dolphins, rorquals and pilot whales, common off the Mediterranean coastline.

This itinerary is given as an indication only. Based on tide times and weather conditions, the Captain and the Expedition Leader may need to change the order of certain ports of call to ensure guests have the best possible experience.

Encounters with wildlife are possible but cannot be guaranteed.
