The article traces the history of the Greek settlement of Cargèse, Corsica, France, which began with a 17th century migration from the Greek Peloponnesus. A detailed history of the Mani people's forced migration to the Corsican town, founded in 1774, is recounted. The economic and ethnic development of the surrounding region is also reviewed against the backdrop of the town's political history and the eventual decolonialization of the Greek settlement in the 19th century. Cargèse's appeal as a tourist resort is set against its history as a place of exile and migration.
