Put simply Corsica France is one of the gems of the Mediterranean, not only does it enjoy an enviable climate, beautiful clean seas and dramatic, beautiful mountains it is by and large unspoilt. The south of the island or Corse du sud as it is known locally boasts many of the best beaches, they are gently sloping and mostly in pretty coves. We have some great Corsica villas near the beach.
It’s like a Caribbean island just a couple of hour’s flight from the UK. The only snag is that there are not many flights to the island so you do need to book early.
The island has the best sun record and lowest rainfall record in France, so there is no doubting that if you are wanting good weather then a holiday in Corsica is the place for you. Such records do not tell the full story, there is substantial rainfall during the winter months and some in the summer, but it tends to fall in the mountains which often remain snow-capped well after Easter. The coastline remains blissfully tropical but benefits from the water supply provided by the mountains. So if it's walking in the mountains which appeal to you do take appropriate clothing.
Travelling to Corsica depends to some extent on which area of the island you are going to. The main airport in southern Corsica is Figari (FSC) although it is quite feasible to fly into Bastia (BIA) in the north and drive down along the relatively straight and easy motoring coast road to Porto Vecchio and Figari. For the north-west, you can fly into Ajaccio (AJA) from where you can also drive to Propriano and Tizzano. However, the drive over from Ajaccio to the east is not recommended as it is a very winding road. Flight operators to Corsica include Easyjet and Ryanair. Air Corsica has recently expanded to offer flights from London.
Corsican cuisine is exceptionally good, there are many local products which are quite unique to the island and exceptional aromatic herbs, found in abundance in the "maquis", which add wonderful flavours to even the simplest of dishes. There are fabulous local products such as honey, mountain cheeses, ham from wild pigs, wild boar and fresh fish and shellfish. And the Corsicans know how to cook it! There is no shortage of gastronomic restaurants on the island though often it’s the less obvious places that come up trumps.
There is so much to do on Corsica holidays, particularly water sports, as the beautiful clean waters are superb for diving with plenty of fish and beautiful corals and there are lots of excellent areas for windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. Walking on holiday in many Corsican places is exceptional, as good as any in Europe, paths are well marked and some are famous, such as the GR20. You can enjoy sports and outdoors in Corsica, the local holiday attractions and holiday events on the island.
