‘I scream, you scream – we all scream for ice-cream !’ doesn’t it appeal to just about everybody since their childhood ? fond memories and notions of holidays .. sea, sun and well-being. As soon as the temperatures rise, we seek these moments of pure pleasure. I decided to visit a new ice-cream parlour, opened very recently (beginning May, to be exact) – with great expectations.

Two brothers, Robert and Daniel Havell (who were known as talented landscapers), evoke with such accuracy the Gulf of Sagone, that one would have thought they were working with eye witnesses. Immobilised by lack of wind, three English ships leave to attack with audacity: two heavy frigates are towed by rowboats, and sailors activate the long oars through the portholes. At the end of the bay, two French frigates – the Giraffe and the Nanny, are mooring along with an armed merchant ship.
External use: stomatitis, mouth ulcers, sore throats, ulcers, insect stings/bites, sprains and even hair care.
In the area of Roccapina, between Sartène and Bonifacio, a lion with a majestic mane can be observed – lying down on a rock overlooking the sea, contemplating the sandy beach before his eyes. On top of his head, almost like a crown, one can distinguish the ruins of an ancient Genoese tower. Legend tells us, that at the time of the Saracens this spectacular site belonged to a rich and powerful lord. One day, while he was out hunting he met a beautiful young woman, and of course fell hopelessly in love with her. But he couldn’t marry her because of his rank. He was filled with so much sorrow, he called upon death to take him – his call was heard, and he was turned to stone immediately under the appearance of a lion, immobilised for eternity.
