Corsica, a Mediterranean island south of the French mainland, encompasses striking mountains, charming fishing villages and swanky coastal resort towns. Come here to sail the open waters, test your mountain biking skills on narrow paths and sunbathe in the Mediterranean sunshine.
While Corsica is officially part of France and has been since 1768, the island has a distinctive character of its own. The island was ruled by the Italians since the 11th century and has been heavily influenced by Italian architecture and culture. This explains why, although French is the official language, many locals also speak Corsu, a native language resembling Italian.
Venture to Bastia, an old port town packed with charming neighborhoods such as Terra Nova and Terra Vecchia. Walk along the trails of nearby Cap Corse that wind their way to the north of the island. Pause in Erbalunga, a fishing village that has attracted many artists and painters who were inspired by the picturesque views.
Other settlements worth seeking out include the town of Corte in central Corsica, which oozes character. Follow a heritage trail through the cobblestone streets of the old town and buy local cheese from shepherds.
Hikers will be in heaven in the Regional Nature Park of Corsica, which extends across around 40 percent of the island, while prehistoric sites such as Ceccia and Castellu d’Araghju are a must-see for history-obsessed visitors.
In the south of the island, discover the white cliffs of Bonifacio and the relaxing beaches of Saint Cyprien and Cala Rossa.
Corsica has four airports with regular flights to the French mainland arriving and departing year round. Services from other destinations in Europe operate during peak season. Alternatively, arrive by ferry from France or Italy. Book ahead for the best prices and to ensure a spot. Buses do serve the larger towns and cities of Corsica, but for the most control over your vacation, buy a Corsica road map and rent a car.
In addition to exploring Corsica’s major attractions, consider stopping by a local weekend market to meet the locals and gain a deeper understanding of the islanders’ daily customs.

Very clean hotel and new furniture with a bery good breakfast
The stay we had was nice. The room for two was a bit tiny but clean. The price is quite steep, as everything in Corsica. It's a bit hard to find a parking spot around if you don't book a parking spot with the hotel.
The spa change room was dirty, the massage therapist does not know what deep tissue requires, pillows in the Bar chairs have torn seems, our room was not ready, our friend in the spa was asked to return to her room to put on a robe. The chairs in Bar have more relevance to design than for comfort. ...
3rd time stay, good location facing the beach with friendly staff. Great breakfast buffet. Very cosy hotel with decent size room and very large bed.
Really nice hotel with all amenities, kettle, safe, balcony up a steep hill, close to train station and an easy walk to Calvi citadel. Outstanding feature was roof terrace and swimming pool which was shared with posher sister hotel. Nice bakery underneath the hotel for those who don't want to try ...
Nice simple clean and quiet hotel in a good location for buses and trains.Good value for money in Bastia.
Beautiful, modern hotel, set in a stunning citadel location. Exceptionally comfortable, with attentive, helpful staff and clean, well appointed rooms. Difficult to fault the place. My only regret is that we could not have stayed longer. Excellent value for money.
