A dream of Corsica

An entertaining food and culture festival which has been returning to Chamonix yearly for the past 15 years, the Corsica Festival emerged in 2003 when Roland Beraud fell in love with the beautiful island and its rich culture.

"During an event at the cinema [...], I met José Giovanni, a famous Corsican director. Moved by the man [José Giovanni], the film and the Corsican songs I heard that night, during the discussion, I sensed in José the desire and the idea of doing something in Chamonix."

One year later, a whole Corsican delegation arrived in Chamonix and the success was irrefutable.

The audience was delighted and the rooms were full.

Longtime friendships were naturally formed and a new tradition developed in the Chamonix valley. The Corsica festival has been bringing the magic of the island every year to the Chamonix valley.
