Holiday cottages in Corsica

Spacious cottages with swimming pool and sun terrace

On the coasts of the island of Corsica you will find spacious villas with sea views that offer space for the whole family. Most villas have their own swimming pool and a large sun terrace. The comfortably furnished houses offer several bedrooms and bathrooms so that each family member can enjoy his privacy. A little further inland you will discover rustic country houses made of natural stone, often situated directly on the mountain slope. With thick walls the vacation rental keeps the midday heat off, small courtyards offer themselves for the stay in the shade.

Cosy Bungalows on Corsica's East Coast

Bungalows on Corsica's east coast offer ideal conditions for a beach holiday. On the coastal strip from Bastia to Sari-Solenzara there are comfortable houses, often with their own pool and surrounded by parks. The choice ranges from a vacation rental for two to three people to a villa for six to eight people. Air conditioning is part of the standard equipment. Usually a parking space for your own car is also part of the house. From the terrace you can enjoy the view over the beach and the Mediterranean Sea.

Urban apartments in Corsica's port cities

You will discover modern apartment complexes in Corsica's capital Ajaccio on the west coast. The vacation rental is often only a few hundred metres from the beach and offers a wonderful view over the surroundings with large window fronts. In the old town you will find comfortably equipped studios behind historic facades. Spacious holiday resorts overlooking the sea are located near the harbour town of Calvi in the northwest. At Porto-Vecchio in the south typical Corsican country houses with robust natural stone facades were converted into holiday apartments and equipped with air conditioning and large terraces.

Holidays in Corsica

Location and orientation

French island in the Mediterranean Sea

Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Politically, the island belongs to France and lies southeast of the French mainland, about 180 kilometers from Nice. The city of Livorno on the Italian mainland is 83 kilometres away. To the south, Corsica is bordered by the Strait of Bonifacio, a narrow moat that separates the island from Sardinia and is only 12 kilometres wide.

High mountains with more than 50 two thousand metre peaks

Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily, Sardinia and Cyprus. The island's landscape is mainly characterised by mountain ranges. The high mountains in the west rise about 2,500 meters out of the water, the highest mountain is Monte Cino with 2,706 meters. In total there are more than 50 two thousand meter peaks in Corsica. In the east there is a low mountain range, only along the east coast runs an approximately ten kilometre wide, flat coastal strip.

Even little people can cast long shadows. - Corsican proverb

Corsica for beach holidaymakers

The coastal strips on Corsica are rather narrow. The mountain ranges often reach almost to the water and form there small, protected bays. Popular beaches are located in the south of the island around Porto-Vecchio and at the Balagne in the northwest. The southwest beaches of Propriano and Porto-Pollo are quiet and secluded. Families prefer to spend their beach holidays in a vacation rental on the east coast. Comparatively wide sandy beaches stretch from Bastia to Sari-Solenzara. Characteristic for Corsica's beaches is the fine, light grey sand.

Corsica for hikers

Corsica bears the epithet "mountains in the sea". Hiking trails lead here over several hundred meters of altitude. The 220-kilometre Grande Randonnée 20 long-distance hiking trail, for example, connects Conca in the south of the island with Calanzana in the north and crosses the high mountains. Along the coast we follow the "Tra Mare e Monti" route, the "sea and mountain" route. The "Mare e Mare" hiking trail runs between the east and west coasts. The Corsican nature park "Parc Naturel régional de Corse" is also popular for hiking.

Corsica for skiers

Corsica has more than 50 mountains with over 2000 meters of altitude and ski regions to offer. From December to April there is snow on the highest peaks. Ski slopes for snowboarders and skiers can be found in the Val d'Ese ski region near Bastelica and in the Ghisoni-Capanelle ski area. In the ski region Asco/Stagnu the lift was reopened in 2016. Cross-country skiers can ski on the tracks of the Coscione plateau or on the Paesolu d'Aïtone near Evisa.

Top 5 travel tips

1. The capital Ajaccio

On the west coast of Corsica lies the capital Ajaccio, birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. In the Gulf of Ajaccio extends the second largest commercial port of the island. The old town is characterised by numerous historical monuments, including the cathedral Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption, built in 1906, and the Imperial Chapel, built in 1857 by Napoleon III, the Imperiale Chapel.

2. The Scandola peninsula

The Scandola peninsula in western Corsica is the island's first nature reserve. Since 1957, 900 square meters of land and 1000 square meters of water have been under special protection. Besides Iceland, Scandola is the world's only site of so-called ryolite columns, hexagonal rock formations made of special magma, which belong to the UNESCO World Natural Heritage.

3rd Bastia - Corsica's largest trading port

In the northeast of Corsica, in the city of Bastia, lies the largest commercial port of the island. The old port called Port de Plaisance is now used as a marina, while ferry connections from the new port to mainland France are breaking up. A holiday apartment in the city offers a good view of the hustle and bustle of the harbour, as do the restaurants and cafés on Place Saint-Nicolas.

4. Visiting turtles

Between the capital Ajaccio and Corte is "A Cupulatta", the largest turtle farm in Corsica. More than 150 different species of giant tortoises live here. In the nursery visitors can observe turtle young that are only a few days old.

5. The Fête de la Saint Erasme in Calvi

One of the traditional Corsican festivals is the Fête de la Saint Erasme in Calvi, the capital of the Balagne. Every year on 2 June the town celebrates the Day of Honour of Fishermen. A procession leads to the port, where the fishing boats receive their blessing. Afterwards we have grilled fish.
