Annie Traiteur

Tucked behind Calvi’s beautiful church of Sainte-Marie, this gourmet treasure trove carries Corsican specialties. Best of all, many of the olive oils, tapenades, jams and liqueurs come in small sizes, making this a great spot for stocking up on gifts before you return home. There’s a large counter with fresh-made picnic food, like quiches, roasted vegetables, cheeses and antipasta. Annie also has an extensive selection of wines, especially from the acclaimed, nearby Patrimonio appellation.

Au Petit Bazaar

As one of the most visited towns on Corsica, Bonifacio has a lot of touristy shops that you can skip but head to Au Petit Bazaar for beautifully made home accents and accessories, most of which are designed and made in France. Great gifts that pack easily to bring back home: Corsican tea towels; light-cotton pareos and resin necklaces in eye-popping colors.

Carioca Plage

Ever since 2004, the island designer label Carioca features a colorful array of elegant beachwear from original bikinis and one-pieces to stylish beach cover-ups. The brand is now imported all over the world, but the best selection is in this local boutique.

Merchandise at Casanera, Corsica, France


This contemporary, black-walled boutique carries unique gifts that capture Corsica’s pungent fragrances of the flowering maquis, from beauty creams and essential oils to candles and soaps. The heady combinations of rosemary, lavender, myrtle, thyme, juniper, lentisk, broom and everlasting flowers are a guaranteed sniff-till-you-swoon crowd pleaser. Keep an eye out for the candles made for Domaine de Murtoli—some locations sell them and they smell heavenly. There’s also an assortment of handcrafted jewelry. There are Casanera locations in Calvi, Porto Vecchio, Ajaccio and Bastia.

Izi Mi

If you're looking for a "made in Corsica" label, head to this small boutique where designers Annabelle Picciochi and Daphnée Fall create their own collection of island sportswear, from beaded silky tunics to flowing trousers and embroidered blouses. The jewelry is an equally eye-catching mix of handcrafted necklaces, earrings and bracelets that compliment their original fashion line.

Julien Trouchon

The gorgeous pottery of Julien Trouchon will make you reconsider your luggage (even though the Patromino-based potter also ships worldwide). Some of the best addresses on Corsica, including Domaine de Murtoli and Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa, showcase his contemporary wares, ranging from vases in dreamy colors to dainty espresso cups.

Le Shop at Cala Rossa

Anyone staying at the Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa should not miss the lovely boutique on the ground floor, stocked with a wonderful assembly of fashion, accessories, jewelry and home accents, most of them made in France. Curated by the charming Fatima, it is the kind of well-stocked, seaside-hotel boutique that makes you question whether making the trip into Porto-Vecchio town is even worth it.

Corsica’s answer to the southern France’s pastis is Cap Corse, which comes in two varieties (rouge and blanc) and is served with seltzer and a slice of orange or lemon. The producer of this wonderfully aromatic aperitif is Mattei, a family-owned business since 1872. Their flagship store in Bastia is definitely worth a visit if you’re touring this northern city. Besides their own products (in a variety of sizes), the Mattei shop also carries other Corsican specialties and a large variety of wine.
