Mark's verdict:

It may be the closest Mediterranean island to the UK, but Corsica remains one of the region's wild and unspoiled gems. It’s perfect for families who want to combine seaside fun with a splash of adventure – whether it’s horse riding in the mountains or trying out a new watersport. Corsican Places has the island covered – its villas and apartments are great value for families.

Recommended tour operator: Corsican Places

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 loving and adventure seeking families are sure to enjoy a holiday in Corsica.

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 family 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 PiatatellaLa Dimora and Le Goeland.

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

As the Corsica specialist, we offer our very own direct charter flights from Stansted, Heathrow & 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 destination, with our staff able to provide first-hand recommendations, and our in-resort team supporting you throughout your holiday with us.
