Cargese is a quiet and placid town of Genoese origin that was founded, and is known, to host a Greek community exiled to Corsica. It was in fact built in 1774 as a refuge for a group of Greeks who had left the Peloponnese to escape Turkish rule. Around 100 houses and a Greek Orthodox church were erected.

The Greek colony was never really welcome and the Corsican population was hostile to it for years, attacking the settlement several times.

However, 50 years later, given the presence of many Corsican people in the village, a Latin church was also built. Even today, these two churches facing each other are the symbol of the village.

Cargese today enchants with its special atmosphere of quiet alleys and the whiteness of its houses overlooking a bay with a turquoise sea.

There are not many sights, apart from the two churches, but it is an excellent base for exploring the area and enjoying the sea life. Close to Chiuni beach, there are also Plage du Pero, the most beautiful beach in the area where you can also windsurf, Plage de Topini and Plage de Menasina that enchant with their crystal-clear waters.
