Corsica

Mark and David's verdict:

It's arguably the most gorgeous island in the Mediterranean, with perfect beaches and an interior dotted with medieval hilltowns, forests and the famous scented maquis. Yet compared to islands such as Mallorca, Corfu and Ibiza, it is curiously overlooked by British visitors. Corsica, in our book, is the Med to perfection, with a thick layer of French polish.

Recommended travel company: Corsican Places

Corsican Places says

An island of great beauty, Corsica is a destination that offers something for everyone. With a coastline combining miles of sweeping golden sands, towering cliffs and intimate hidden coves, plus a rugged interior of maquis-covered hillsides, thick forested valleys and some genuinely jaw-dropping mountain scenery, beach lovers and adventure seekers are sure to enjoy the prospect of a Corsica holiday.

  • Charter flights
  • Family friendly
  • Great beaches
  • Private pools

Add to the mix outstanding food and wine, an interesting culture that’s both French and Italian and some excellent accommodation, and you have a simply stunning holiday destination.

At Corsican Places, we have an excellent range of places to stay, including self-catering villas, apartments and houses, plus a variety of hand-picked hotels right across the island. From the regions of St Florent and la Balagne in the north, to the Gulfs of the West Coast and L’Extrême Sud regions further south, it’s easy to soak up the very best of island with the destination specialists.

For self-catering escapes with a private pool, look no further than the charming Casa Monica close to the southern hilltop town of Porto Vecchio, or L’Ancre Bleue just outside St Florent, where magnificent coastal panoramas await. For a homely feel, try Villa Bicu Rossu; a bergerie-style property in the south surrounded by olive groves and stunning mountain scenery.

For something a little more central, the Le Home Apartments in Calvi are perfect for exploring this stunning Corsican town and its citadel, all of which are just a ten-minute stroll away.

Our range of hotels includes the characterful Hotel St Christophe in Calvi. We also offer a collection of specially selected boutique hotels such as A Piatatella, La Dimora and Le Goeland.

If instead you’re looking for a touch more adventure, our self-drive tours and walking holidays are ideal.

As the Corsican specialist, we offer our very own direct charter flights from Stansted, Heathrow and Manchester, and scheduled services are also available from Southampton, Gatwick and Birmingham. We pride ourselves on our personal service and in-depth knowledge of the island, with our staff able to provide first-hand recommendations, and our in-resort team supporting you throughout your holiday with us.
