Apartments and Villas in Corsica

This island gem is ideal as a year round holiday destination. A heady blend of Italian and French influences makes Corsica not only a favourite for foreign tourists, but also for French nationals. Today, the island is governed under partial home-rule from the capital Ajaccio, and offers a mix of Italian as well as French culture. The Corsican cultural identity is rich and layered, much like its history, offering many different outlets of expression from traditional music, food and architecture to the very languages that are spoken on the island. French is the primary language, but many are trilingual, speaking Italian and Corsu.  

Half the island lies within a national park, including the island’s highest peak, Monte Cinto, which stands at 2,706 metres. From peaks to beaches, the island also has a mixture of busy and remote stretches of its 1000km of coastline dipping into the Mediterranean. Don’t be fooled by Corsica’s island status – this destination is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and has much to offer for both family holidays and couples.
