Corsica


A statue of Napoleon and his sons on the Place de Gaulle in Ajaccio, the town of his birth

Balzac described Corsica as 'a French island basking in the Italian sun', but the island has a singular character that is entirely its own. This beautiful, wild outdoor playground is the ultimate après outdoor destination - physical exertion in the elements by day, French wine and cuisine by night, and a peaceful night's sleep to boot.

Corsica has been French for only 200 of its 4000-year history, and has many indigenous traditions - gastronomic, musical and cultural. It is beautiful, wild, rugged, unspoilt and a touch old-fashioned. The birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, Corsica is not short on either bonhomie or national pride.
