Corsica and Toulouse, September 12-24, 2017
ATSCC is going to Corsica and Toulouse. We would love to have you join us. The dates are September 12-24, 2017.
Suspended halfway between sea and sky amid the calm of the maquis scrubland, lies a French estate overhanging a rocky headland surrounded by clear water: welcome to Sant'Ambroggio. Join us for a 7-night all-inclusive stay at Club Med, right on the beach, and discover Corsica’s treasures, its breathtaking landscapes, and its rich history. The trip includes 4 excursions,
Corsica of thousands of colors
Discover some of Corsica’s most magnificent treasures – la Scala di Santa Regina, the forest of Aïtone and the gorges of Spelunca. You’ll go on to visit the lovely village of Porto, and after a short walk in the “Calanches de Piana” you’ll drive back up the coast, through more fantastic country.
