During the summer in Corsica the island's four airports - Bastia in the north, Calvi, in the north-west, Ajaccio on the west coast, and Figari in the south - are served by charter flights from the UK. Here are some pictures from holidays in Calvi. The town of Calvi takes its name from the Calvus – ‘bald’ rock that would come to form the foundations of the Citadel.The town of Calvi enjoys a rich cultural life in the form of the festivals that take place throughout the year.Calvi beach is particularly suited to children and the gently shelving waters of the bay are clear and warm, and there are plenty of intimate coves heading out towards the peninsular if you want somewhere quieter. The food in Calvi is fabulous, but the wine, all locally produced, is even better.A walk around the grounds of the citadel is free, and essential to enjoy the magnificent views over the town and bay with the mountains of the Balagne dominating the horizon beyond.
