The French region and island of Corsica, in the Mediterranean Sea, is a fantastic holiday destination, located west of the Italian Peninsula, south-east of the mainland, with Italy’s boot to its right…
This beautiful Mediterranean island, split into Upper Corsica and South Corsica, is widely known as ‘the island of beauty’ due to its gorgeously diverse sceneries, from pebbled beaches (over 200 beaches in total!) to breathtaking, rolling valleys. Where do you want to explore?
The beaches in the south of the island offer particularly gorgeous, blue waters and white soft sands. Corsica boasts over 1,000 kilometres of stunning coastline – offering plenty of outdoor fun! You’ll find the perfect beach for you – with a diversity of sunbathing spots, you can truly kick back and relax across its magnificent bays, or have some secluded moments across its hidden coves on an epic romantic retreat. With some only accessible by foot or boat, you can make every day a new adventure!
If you fancy outdoor adventure immersed in awe-inspiring natural beauty, mountainous Corsica’s most definitely the place for you. The island offers a brilliant swimming, sailing, scuba-diving and mountain-hiking break, particularly in the warm summer months. Or ski on a winter Corsica escape! Despite being known for its striking beaches, the island is actually a great winter destination too, with its mountainous landscapes and breathtaking sceneries.
So whether you desire a lazy getaway with endless sun-drenched beach days or active break exploring the island’s best bits, a holiday to Corsica promises to satisfy every time. View the Travelopo portfolio of Corsica holiday villas and apartments today for the ultimate island inspiration!
The island is famous for being the birthplace of the French Emperor Napoléon, with many statues and street names dedicate to him, especially in the capital city of Ajaccio. This fascinating city is a tourist hotspot on the island, offering the Maison Bonaparte ancestral home of Napoléon (today, a popular museum).
Ajaccio is also home to the infamous 16th century Tour de la Parata, a ruined Genoese tower sitting at an elevation of 55 metres on a rocky promontory. The Musée Fesch is another great attraction here, as the central museum of fine arts located within the gated Palais Fesch.
