For the third in our series of summer postcards, Nettement Chic sets sail for the gloriously clear waters of Corsica, otherwise known as "l'Ile de Beauté." Bea, founder of uber-cool accessories e-store ByBea shares her tips for a super chic stay on the island.
Nettement Chic (NC) : Why Corsica and since when?
Bea : We have spent the past two summers on the island with my family. It is the perfect place if you favour a peaceful and wildly beautiful holiday destination.
NC : What are your tips for a nettement chic day in Corsica?
Bea : When I can go to the market in the early morning I know I am really on holiday. Bonifacio market is excellent and the views from the clifftops are spectacular.
Next stop lunch on the beach at Tamaricciu or Maora for the fabulous fish.
My favourite place for drinks in the evening is the port at Bonifacio followed by supper at the yacht club (le restaurant du centre nautique) watching the boats come in. And I never can resist a last drink at the B'52!
NC : What is the indispensable item of clothing for a day on the beach in Corsica?
Bea : The Cuba Libre in metallic green. For me it's the perfect bag for the beach and for evening.
