Place Saint Nicolas, the ideal holiday destination!
With its views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Place Saint Nicolas condenses the very best of the Corsican way of life. All generations gather here to indulge in their favourite pursuits – pétanque, the merry-go-rounds or a siesta in the shade of the centuries-old plane trees. In the Haute-Corse, your family holiday or romantic break will be all about easy living and letting go.
On the shores of the Mediterranean, your Sandaya holiday village has everything a camper needs for a truly happy holiday! First, its ideal location between Bastia and the Biguglia Lagoon, but also its gorgeous water park where everyone will have fun, the free children’s clubs for little campers, and every kind of sports activity for grown-up guests. And the icing on the cake of your Corsican holiday? Easy access to the sea!
Visit Place Saint Nicolas with the family
On this lovely square, your children will have all the space they need to play, run around and have fun. First a fairground ride, then a running race or some climbing... they’re sure to enjoy an action-packed afternoon! With so much fun and laughter to be had, your little cherubs will treasure lasting memories of their holiday in Corsica!
Place Saint Nicolas is also the starting point for some sightseeing tours. Select the route that suits you and set off with your gang to discover beautiful Bastia. And after all that walking, time to indulge in a teatime treat! The whole family will appreciate an ice cream as you stroll along the nearby harbour.
Visit Place Saint Nicolas as a couple
On Sundays, Place Saint Nicolas turns into a giant flea market, much to the delight of the bargain hunters! The colourful range of stalls display antique furniture and objects, collectors’ books, postcards and second-hand goods. If you enjoy hunting for bric-a-brac, then you won’t want to miss this opportunity!
A few short steps from there, lovers of architectural heritage will simply have to raise their eyes to admire the bourgeois buildings that line the square. The “palazzi d’americani” – or American villas – were mainly built by Corsicans who had made their fortune in South America. A lovely backdrop for a romantic selfie!
