Another gorgeous day. The drive along windy mountain roads from Ajaccio to Bonifacio alternates between mountain and sea views.
Filitosa, Corsica’s most important prehistoric site, may be a minor attraction on a European scale but the picturesque walk through the Corsican countryside offers unusual artifacts, such as carved menhirs with faces and weaponry, not often seen at more important archeological sites.
Lunch at Le Jardin de l’Echauguette in the hilltop town of Sartène. The lovely shaded terrace boasts sea views. Admittedly the sea views are over the auto route and off in the distance, but the setting is charming nonetheless.
Ordered the eggplant terrine and
the Assiette du maquis – a local cheese and charcuterie plate. Food is fresh and nicely presented.
The Drive to Bonifacio continues the mountain and sea views.
