The coastal town of Propriano is found on the coast of south-west Corsica, at the head of the Valinco Gulf and north-west of Sartene. It is about halfway between the major towns of Ajaccio to the north and Bonifacio to the south.
ith its array of tempting restaurants and buzzing café terraces lining the marina, Propriano is a popular resort oozing a real traditional feel and relaxed atmosphere – the perfect place to lounge, indulge yourself with a lazy lunch or simply watch the world go by.
The most imposing monument in Propriano is the Church of Notre Dame de la Misericorde which dominates the center of the small town. Elsewhere in Propriano, the harbour contains a fascinating combination of exclusive yachts and more modest fishing boats (there is a pleasure port and also a commercial port in the center of Propriano). Wander around the harbour for some of the best views of the town.
The town centre is largely one long main street which is pleasant to explore with the traditional houses now often taken over by luxury shops, cafes and bars.
It is now a popular resort in Corsica due to the numerous beaches that are close to hand for visitors to Propriano, including the Plage de Lido one kilometre from the town.
From Propriano, you can explore the Corsica’s wealth of lovely beaches, charming villages and rugged scenery.
