Calvi is the closest town on the island of Corsica to a glamorous mainland Mediterranean resort. It became a hangout for European glitterati in the 1950s, and it still attracts thousands to a variety of festivals, including the Calvi Jazz Festival in June, a mid-September Rencontres de Chants Polyphoniques of traditional Corsican music, and an October Festival du Vent celebrating the role of wind in the arts, science and sport. Besides information about five of the AOC Corse-Calvi wine appellation’s leading winemakers, this nine-page guide includes recommendations for boutique hotels and traditional restaurants in Calvi and picturesque medieval villages in the nearby Balagne highlands that offer spectacular views of the sea and the nearby mountains.
