• The Cala Rossa property is situated 25 km from the airport of Figari, and about 10 km from the port of Porto Vecchio.
• Near the entrance of the property, there are four tennis courts exclusively reserved for the owners and the tenants of Cala Rossa.
• Past the private beaches, one can rent a boat and easily reach the small islands and other protected spots on the coast which can only be accessed by boat.
• There are several diving clubs close to Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio if you are intested in underwater activities...
• The entire region around Cala Rossa including the seaside and the back country wilderness is worth exploring, on bicycle, 4 X 4, or... horse! Several riding schools exist a few kilometers away from Cala Rossa.
• Bonifacio, at the southern end of Corsica, is only 30 km from Cala Rossa. Down from the fortress, beyond the « marine cemetery, » the coast of Sardinia is visible. One can visit the caves nested in the cliffs, a stunning site..
• We are also located at the foot of some mountains. Only 25 minutes away by car, the L'Ospédale forest with its sweet chestnut trees and immense fir trees offers a magnificent panorama of the entire gulf of Porto-Vecchio. The wild rivers and natural ponds are ideal for some refreshing baths.  Past an impressive dam, we reach the famous peaks of Bavella (1600 meters), the starting point for numerous hikes including the famous GR20 path.
• An absolute must-see : the Coscione (pig) plateau, in the Alta Rocca,  30 minutes from Quenza, and 1400 meters high. Rocky, sprinkled with spongy grass and "pozzines" (small natural puddles), this area is inhabited by horses, small wild pigs and goats living a peaceful and free life.
• Two large supermarkets are within 8 km of Cala Rossa. There are also minimarkets and a farmers’ market situated a few hundred meters from the property. There is a wide variety of comfortable restaurants in the area.
• For those who still have energy after a day of activities and sunshine, close to Porto-Vecchio there is a world-famous nightclub, Via Notte, renowned for its international DJs.
