Corsica Holidays

Known as the 'Island of Beauty', Corsica is a place of contrasts. During a holiday to Corsica enjoy the breathtaking landscapes and beautiful bays, historic coastal cities, hidden villages and thick forests. It's a destination for enjoying the outdoor life, history and gastronomy. Rent in France offers a fantastic array of villas, apartments and cottages to suit every need and budget.

From snorkelling to exploring ancient hilltop villages, there’s plenty to see and do on the island of Corsica! It is a stunning island with many beautiful beaches that are perfect for whiling the days away, lying on a sunbed with the occasional dip in the azure blue sea. There are many other things to see and do whilst on this special island however, and we've detailed some of them below.

Some of the favourite beaches include Calvi and Loto in the north and Palombaggia and Pinarello in the south. It's a little secret though, that it's possible to swim beyond the beaches in the islands' many rivers. There’s something rather magical about swimming in the clear waters of a mountain stream immersed in nature... One particular favourite is the Restonica Valley, just south of Corte.

Another wonderful pasttime in Corsica is exploring all the walking trails across the island. There are trails to suit every ability, both along the stunning coastlines, as well as into the island's dramatic interior. Horse riding and cycling are also wonderful ways to see and explore the island (and can be great fun for the whole family - if it's a family trip of course!).

Next on the list are snorkelling and diving. The waters around Corsica are stunning and crystal clear, it would almost be criminal not to jump in discover the rich topography, brimming with flora and fauna. Some of the best beaches for snorkelling are Loto in the north, Roccapina, Rondinara and Palombaggia in the south and Marinella in the west near Ajaccio. There are many diving centres dotted around the island. 

There are plenty of cute hilltop villages just waiting to be discovered, overflowing with traditional arts and crafts. Sant’ Antonino is the oldest inhabited village on the island. Amble down the narrow, cobbled streets and discover what is around the next corner, whether that's a stunning view of the sparkling sea, a charming little restaurant, or another pretty cobbled alley.

Another one that requires minimum effort or exertion from your behalf is wandering down to the harbour and plotting down for a good few hours to enjoy beautiful, fresh and delicious local delicacies whilst watching the boats go by and people watching. Heaven!

Lastly, you can't visit Corsica without experiencing it on a boat trip. Boat trips are a fantastic way to see more of the island and are available from many of the ports. One particular favourite destination is the Scandola Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the village of Girolata, which is only accessible by sea or a narrow footpath down the hillside.

If all that has fuelled a need to see and experience the delights of this wonderful island, head over to our property search directory for a full list of all our properties in Corsica. We have plenty of properties in both Haute-Corse and Corse-du-Sud.
