Corsica: between maquis and turquoise sea
You might as well be aware that the most complicated thing in Corsica is to choose where you're going to go, because everything makes you want to see it. Luckily for you, no matter where you unpack your suitcases, you can easily cross the island to explore all its treasures! So you might as well treat yourself and choose the holiday rental in Corsica that you like the most.
Corsica with its beaches bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, its natural reserves and its renowned coastal towns;
And inland Corsica, wild, untouched, with its fragrant garrigue, its steep mountains and its local specialities.
All of this is concentrated on an island 82 km from east to west and 180 km from north to south, less than 2 hours flight from Paris!
From your holiday rental in South Corsica, you could go to Porto-Vecchio and its picturesque harbour, next to the most beautiful beaches of the island, including the famous Palombaggia beach. Pass through Bonifacio perched on its cliff, discover the Lavezzi islands and their strange granite blocks, walk up to the cobbled streets of Sartene, explore Ajaccio, the town of Napoleon Bonaparte... Then head towards the Calanques of Piana, or head north to the citadel of Calvi, the beaches of Ile-Rousse or the Agriates desert, before exploring the Cap Corse and the old port of Bastia!
Under the southern sun, between Genoese and Provencal influences, you will listen to the Corsican singing language or resounding polyphonic songs between two typical cheese and cold meats platters.
Head for nature in your holiday rental in Corsica
If you decide to go on holiday in Corsica, you probably plan to enjoy its beaches at one time or another. From Palombaggia to Santa Giulia, from Rondinara to Nonza, some of the beaches are even among the most beautiful in France!
If lazing around is not enough for you, you will have a long list of water leisure activities to try:
Sea trips and cruises,
Scuba diving or snorkeling,
Rafting, canoeing-kayaking and canyoning,
Board sailing, funboarding,
Surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, water skiing,
Sea scooters, jet skis,
That means you will sure find something to occupy the whole tribe near your holiday rental in Corsica! Whether you have children who love sand castles, a teenager who loves snorkeling or you love thrills, there's something for everyone.
Do you like nature? Do you like it wild and unspoilt? That's good, because almost half of the island is classified as a natural park. Take lots of sunscreen before heading out to explore the nature reserves.If you had to choose just one, the ancient volcanic site of Scandola, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, would win most of the votes. But the nature reserves of the Biguglia pond, the Cap Corse islands, the Cerbicale islands or the Bouches de Bonifacio offer as many breathtaking settings, both on land and underwater.
Hiking lovers, you will also have plenty to do near your holiday rental in Corsica: the mythical GR20, the Restonica valley or the coastal path are just waiting for you. After visiting the perched citadel of Corte, the Genoese tower of Porto or the religious heritage of Cargese, you will have well deserved another dive into the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
