Propriana, Corsica.......

We went to Propriano in Corsica twice while we were staying at the bergerie at the Domaine de Murtali.... it is a nice simple place to visit... no large complex hotels in sight! But lots of boats........

We can recommend 2  restaurants there
Terra Cotta which is rated #1 by TripAdvisor.

which has excellent innovative food..... and a great set menu..

The second restaurant, Le Cabanon, where we had a wonderful table overlooking the port..

was also good and definitely worth a visit, particularly if the Terra Cotta is fully booked... which happened to us!  It is almost next door!

And the fish, when it arrived, looked so good we forgot to take a photo.

We can also recommend the No Stress Cafe...... we went there after meals to have a coffee  and to check our email! They have good WiFi service!

We also found a few nice places to shop!

This old fashioned store we found very appealing and it had a great choice of housewares...

Another store, Tempi Fa, was recommended by the owner of the Domaine de Murtali...
It has a lot of typical Corsican fare....

And a Bar a Vin!  Had we known in time we would have eaten here.........

We also found a very nice market stand to pick up veg etc... and they had a great selection of local wines!

It is located opposite the main Post Office.

We also went to see the Aguilles de Bavella.... just inland from Propriano.
Unfortunately just as we arrived we had a lightening storm... very dramatic!
