Getting to Cargèse

Ajaccio is the nearest airport to Cargèse and is connected by several daily flights to Paris and other European cities. Please visit the Ajaccio airport website for a list of airlines serving the area. For other means of traveling to Cargèse visit the town webpage.

The IESC organizes a bus from Ajaccio airport to Cargese on Sunday late afternoon (departure at around 18:30-19:00). We expect that most of the participants will be on that bus - please plan your travel accordingly. For the early / late arrivals, we can organize a few shared taxis. A ride between Ajaccio airport and Cargèse costs approximately 100 EUR for normal transfer and 120 EUR for early, late and non-working-day transfer. The ride takes less than one hour.

You might also want to consider driving to Cargèse. In this case, be aware that the roads on the island are very winding and thus do not expect an average speed above 40 km/h. This also applies if you plan to fly to another airport in Corsica and then drive to Cargèse.


We will take care of the accommodation for all participants. Most of the participants will be hosted in shared rooms. Some rooms are located at the institute, and some others in apartments in the village. Note that we can accept a few requests for single rooms. Finally, there is also the possibility to stay in a hotel (although the difference in comfort is much less than the difference in price). An estimation of the total "local" cost for the workshop is 450 EUR for normal accommodation and 800 EUR if you want to stay in a hotel. This amount includes basically everything (accommodation, breakfasts, lunches, excursion, registration...) except evening dinners.
