Bastia is close and accessible 7 days a week, 365 days a year
There is no need to travel thousands of kilometres to enjoy crystal clear waters and a temperate climate all year round!

Perfectly served by 51 national and international routes: it is only 1h30 from Paris and Lyon, and less than 1h from Nice and Marseille thanks to the daily flights operated by Air France and the regional airline Air Corsica. Bastia is also easily accessible from the main European capitals from England, Scandinavia, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Switzerland….

A great opportunity to combine the pleasure of a crossing with working sessions!
It is sunny and mild all year round
It’s not a myth, it’s a reality! Bastia enjoys a Mediterranean climate. In other words, it is good all year round and the sun is shining. It is in Corsica that the sunshine is the most important in France. With an average temperature of 19°C, spring is the ideal time to organize your seminars in a natural Bastiaise environment full of flowers! Autumn offers a mild recovery around 20°C, particularly appreciated for beautiful mountain hikes. In winter, the mild temperatures (on average 14°C) allow you to enjoy pleasant walks by the sea between two meetings, to explore the wine route and to savour Corsican seasonal specialities.
Bastia makes it possible to combine business and pleasure
Work sessions are more enjoyable when they are punctuated by escapades! Between land and sea, Bastia offers a multitude of activities to exchange and strengthen the bonds in your teams. Embark on a sea excursion to discover the Cap Corse Marine Natural Park, visit these famous balcony villages on the edge of a cornice marked by the charm of yesteryear and authenticity, taste the specialities of Bastia on your return from a cultural outing, escape on the wine route or explore the mountain peaks overlooking the city to enjoy breathtaking panoramas.
