"Excellent pool and great access to beach." Christopher from Bromley

Your Regional Specialist Lynn

“Expect great weather and breathtakingly beautiful beaches, of course, but families also rave about the unspoilt mountain centre, too. I would recommend hiring a car when setting about discovering the most on this amazing island. It'll add a bit extra to your trip and you'll be able to see everything on offer faster. Plus there's also the endless sunshine, which is a big bonus!"

Hidden Gem: Cascades de Polischellu

Close to the Bravella Massif, the Cascades de Polischellu are crystal clear waterfalls, creating sparkling emerald pools. One of the most scenic sites in Corsica and perfect for a picnic!

Old Favourite: Ajaccio

The largest city in Corsica, and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Enjoy a stroll along the palm tree lined seafront or simply wander through the colourful alleyways next to the Citadelle

Local Cuisine: Corsican honey

Corsica has many unique tasting and pungent honeys. Try the different varieties produced each season and also Maquis honey which is slightly darker in colour but every bit as tasty.

What to See & Do: Street Markets

Not to be missed is a visit to one of Corsica's colourful street markets. Most of the main towns have them and you'll be amazed at - and no doubt tempted by - the rich variety of produce!

Festivals & Events: Patrimonio Corsica

This fantastic guitar festival has in the past attracted the likes of Joe Cocker, Robert Plant and Tom Jones. Recently Jeff Beck performed along with a variety of other musical performers. Definitely not to be missed!

Beaches & Lakes: Saleccia Beach

Take a boat trip to Saleccia beach on the island's north west coast. This unspoilt, UNESCO-protected site was used in the Second World War movie the Longest Day and is spectacular.
