Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The French region of Corsica is an island situated in the Mediterranean Sea. It is located west of Italy, southeast of the French mainland, and north of the island of Sardinia. Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.  Its capital is Ajaccio. There are two departments; Ajaccio is the capital of the department of Corse-du-Sud.  Bastia is the capital of Haute-Corse. Corsica extends a maximum of 111 miles, from north to south, and 51 miles from east to west.  The interior is mountainous, reaching its highest peak at Mount Cinto, which is 8892 feet above sea level.  The west coast is mostly rocky and indented. The eastern coastal plain of Aleria is sprinkled with lagoons and swamps. 

Rent self catering holiday rental villas, houses and apartments in Corsica and explore it's beautiful landscape and warm seas, making the island a preferred destination for the tourist. The beaches and very clear water are excellent for all water sports, and some of the best diving in the world. The island's perfect climate, coastlines, fantastic mountain views, interesting towns and marinas combined together, make it a popular destination among tourists, including the French along with other Western Europeans. Due to the fact that Corsica is the least economically developed region in Metropolitan France, tourism plays a major part in it's economy. The island has not experienced the same intensive development as other parts of the Mediterranean and as a result is relatively unspoiled. Tourism is particularly concentrated in the area around Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio in the south of the island and Calvi in the northwest.

The two largest rivers in Corsica are the Golo and Tavignano. They are fed by numerous mountain streams. Corsica contains the GR20, one of Europe's most notable hiking trails – making it an ideal reason to visit Corsica.

 

The island is divided into three major ecological zones by altitude. Below 2,000 feet is the coastal zone, which features a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. From 2,000 to 6,000 feet is a temperate zone. The mountains are cooler and wetter with vegetation more typical of northern Europe. The population lives predominantly below 3,000 feet - with only shepherds and hikers at 2,000 to 3,000 feet. From 6,000 to 9,000 feet is a high alpine zone. In spite of the southern location, the highest elevations are snow-capped with small glaciers.
