spring Carnival 2018: Sartène

During the rest of the year, it is a picturesque and charming village, where you can enjoy its quiet and relaxing atmospheres. In spring, it becomes the place to visit if you are looking for fun. Because, on April 28th and 29th, the 2018 edition of the Sartène Carnival will take place.


The Carnival

In these two days, there will be all the elements that make Carnival special: parades, masks, music, side events, dances, and of course jokes and lots of fun. There will also be several events for children. While the scents, the colours, and the sweet spring climate will accompany you throughout the journey: it will certainly be a very special and unforgettable Carnival.


How to get there

First, you have to book a ticket for the ferries to Corsica that arrive in the port of Porto Vecchio. From here, to get to Sartène, you have to:

  • Take the D859 road following the road signs to T40 road;
  • Take the T40 road towards north and follow the road signs to Sartène.

The journey by car takes about one hour.


Not only Carnival

To bring you here was the desire to enjoy this “off-season” Carnival. And it was also your desire to travel, of course. For this reason, we recommend you to visit, starting from Sartène, some of the most beautiful places in Corsica:

  • Less than one hour by car and you’ll be in Bonifacio, an ancient city overlooking the spectacular panorama of the homonymous Strait of Bonifacio. Do not miss the citadel, the marina and the Escalier du Roi d’Aragon.
  • And one hour and a half by car to reach Ajaccio, the main city of Corsica. Among the many things to see, there are the house of Napoleon, the cathedral, the citadel and the enchanting Sanguinaires Islands.
