Calvi - a jewel on a beautiful island.
To approach Calvi from the sea is a brilliant experience. The backdrop of the mountains and the old town guarded by the ancient Citadel make a perfect framework for the pastel-shaded houses and the picturesque harbour.
You can smell the perfume of the island as you approach - mixed scents of lavender, rosemary, thyme and other herbs and shrubs.
This is a perfect introduction to the beautiful unspoilt island.
Calvi itself is an ideal spot for swimming, snorkelling, sailing and windsurfing.
