This sunny, French-controlled island is a fantastic way to enjoy some of the best scenery, both mountain and coastal, that the Mediterranean has to offer. Whether your idea of the perfect holiday involves water sports, hiking or sunbathing, be sure to book your next holiday rental in Corsica.
Corsica has changed hands many times throughout history, but has been under French control since the late 1700s. This means that Corsica has developed some interesting local customs and culture, influenced by the many different cultures that have controlled the island.
Renowned for its diverse and beautiful scenery, from golden sandy beaches to rocky mountains and crystal clear waters teeming with colourful fish, Corsica is a real treat for the eyes.
What to Do
Stay at the beach after the sun goes down to try some locally made gelato. The chestnut flavour is to die for, and with good reason, as chestnut is traditionally used in many local Corsican dishes.

The House of Amber: Top Villa
My Favorite Villa So Far!
This villa was even better than the pictures. It was perfect for me and my friends. We could walk to the beach (it's a healthy walk - but we are in shape). The villa has spectacular views of the sea and a gorgeous garden and pool. It was the perfect combination of feeling secluded but close enough to amenities. About 45 minutes from Ajaccio. it was well-appointed with everything we needed - dishwasher, washer and dryer, full size refrigerator, cook top and oven. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. …
A CASA DI ALIVU Studio Castagnu
A lovely place!!!!!!
This little house in a garden with 500 years old trees and extensive views of the mountains and the sea is absolutely lovely.
In a short walk, you are in the village. The Brasserie Santa Maria (go down the hill) is a café/restaurant/small grocery shop and you can buy bread there.
There is plenty of space to park your car.
The flat in the house is up quite a few steps. There is a terrasse with wonderful views.
The room contains a small kitchen (fridge, cooker, microwave oven, toaster), table and chairs, large bed and bunk beds.
There is a small tv.
The bathroom has a shower, sink, and WC.
The place is clean. This is a simple basic place, not a luxurious place. Ideal for a holiday and visiting the North of Corsica.
The owners are very friendly and helpful. …

Villa feet in water in the Gulf of Porto Vecchio, spa and heated swimming pool
The best villa!
“This was one of the most beautiful villas we have rented anywhere in the world. The ocean and mountain views from the three different outdoor levels were spectacular and the outdoor areas were all very private, comfortable and inviting. The villa is perfectly located very close to great beaches and the enchanting port town of Porto Vecchio. Nearby mountain hiking and river adventures were also great attractions and remarkable experiences. The best part of the whole villa rental experience for us was how terrific the owner, Corrine, was in terms of helping us with all our needs before and during our whole stay. Any questions we sent her were replied to very quickly and pleasantly. I highly recommend this villa and owner!!!” …

Good stay !
Had a lovely time staying in Corsica with my girlfriend. The family welcomed us and were very helpful with supplying tips about local restaurants and things to do. The garden area is beautiful, along with the pool. The apartment allows enough space to provide privacy when necessary. Pierre was a brilliant host, he was very quick to respond and was more than happy to fix any problems or answer any questions. Pierre is very willing to make your stay as good as he can, and we are very much thankful for this. …
