 Ajaccio is above all a unique and magical place. The town rises up from one of the most beautiful gulfs in the world, set against a backdrop of mountains that are often snow-capped until the spring. The beauty of the area is matched by the mildness of the climate and the “Ajaccian art of living”.

Ajaccio, Napoleon's place of birth, is located on the west coast of the island of Corsica, 210 nautical miles (390 km) southeast of Marseille. The commune occupies a beautiful and sheltered position at the foot of wooded hills on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio between Gravona and the pointe de la Parata and includes the îles Sanguinaires (Bloody Islands). Many wonderful beaches and coves border its territory and the terrain is particularly rugged in the west, where the highest point is 790 meters.
