Want to visit Caribbean-style beaches without the jetlag? Then Corsica is the answer for you. Aptly named Île de Beauté, this laid-back French island has vibrant scenery, with everything from a sharp red granite mountain range to crystal clear waters in South Corsica. Whether you are looking for a luxury beach villa in Corsica or want to get lost in the wilderness in a private luxury villa with a pool, a luxury villa holiday to Corisca will never disappoint.
‘Ile de Beauté’ – and what a beautiful island it is! Home to almost 200 Caribbean-style beaches, as well as 120 picture-perfect peaks, Corsica is a one of a kind paradise, perfect for a luxury summer villa getaway with friends and family.
Corsica has a 1,000km coastline, which is dotted with fishing villages, sheltered inlets and pretty coves. As you’ll discover, the crystal clear waters surrounding Corsica’s shores could rival any in the Caribbean, and not to mention the dazzling sandy bays. Porto Vecchio & Bonifacio are close to the picture-perfect beaches, and their ancient cobbled streets dotted with cafés, boutiques and restaurants make them truly magical places for a luxury villa holiday.
But Corsica is more than just sea and sand. Head into central Corsica and you’ll discover some of the island’s most incredible scenery, such as the gorges of the Restonica Valley and the impressive forests of Castagniccia. A luxury Corsica villa in Corte will mean that you are perfectly located for exploring Corsican Parc Naturel.
Corsica has an extraordinary history, which is evident in its ancient citadels and Corsica’s capital Ajaccio – the birthplace of Napoleon. From pastel-coloured façades and a palm-tree bordered waterfront to twisting coastal roads that take you into traditional villages and glamorous towns reminiscent of a 1960s’ Bond film, Corsica will continue to surprise you everywhere you go.
With influences from Italy and France, Corsia offers incredible Mediterranean dining plus fantastic wine. Rent a Corsican villa in The Balagne – the Garden of Corsica. Here you will be immersed in the quaint countryside with endless olive and fruit groves, vineyards and tiny hilltop villages.
Corsica’s incredible variety can be seen in its luxury holiday villas. Whether you are wanting to rent a modern luxury villa with a private pool, stay in an elegant private villa in Porto Vecchio, wake up with views of the sea in a beachfront villa or call a traditional terracotta farmhouse your home away from home, we will be sure to find you your perfect Corsica villa.
We don’t do ordinary here. We are a small team of experienced travel specialists, no request is too big or too small, so please do ask for our help in finding you the perfect luxury holiday villa in Corsica for rent.
Best for sundowners
U Santa Marina on Plage de Santa Giulia is ideal for a sunset cocktail or two. The view over Santa Giulia bay is superb and it’s the perfect way to finish the day.
Head to Conti di San Bonifacio Wine & Wellness resort – their Vineyard Bar is perfectly positioned to make the most of the vineyard and the sunset – the ultimate combination!
The town of Bonifacio is covered in beautiful colours as the sun sets and is ideal for a romantic sundowner. Grab a drink from one of the local cafes and watch the world go by.
Restaurant L’Oggi, in Hotel Chez Charles, is perfect for a special occasion. This Michelin star restaurant has a fabulous terrace where you can admire the view of Calvi whilst sipping on fine wine.
La Casadelmar in Porto-Vecchio should not be missed. The menu is ultra-contemporary with a focus on the sea. This is the only restaurant on the island with two stars.
La Signoria in Calvi is set within an elegant 18th-century manor house surrounded by a pine forest. Step out onto the terrace and you will be greeted by a Mediterranean garden. The menu at this stylish restaurant will take you on a gastronomic journey through time and history.
Best for exploring
Take a ferry to Lotu Beach from Saint-Florent (about 30 minutes) and discover its white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters. There is very little development here other than one small bar which is a 5-minute walk along the seaside path.
Corsica essential visit
Florent is the second largest marina in Corsica and is often compared to St Tropez. Walk along the port, climb up to the citadel through the village’s beautiful small alleys and enjoy a beautiful panorama, overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Florent. Stop in one of the local cafes for a cold drink before heading back to your luxury villa.
Palombaggia is arguably the most beautiful beach in Corsica. Surrounded by pines, the white sand beach is scattered with large reddish granite boulders and small islets. It’s one of the most exotic sights in Europe.
Cupabia is a large beach on the west of Corsica in the Chiavari area. The white sand and bright blue waters may make you feel like you’re in the Caribbean rather than France.
Mare e Sole is in the Ajaccio area and can occasionally get a tinge of pink due to the rocks in the area.
The best period for visiting Corsica is between May and September. The weather is sunny and warm and the water stays warm until September. July and August are when the temperature is at its hottest and is a quintessential Mediterranean climate. If you want a calmer and quieter villa holiday, then visit in September and October – some argue this is when Corsica is the most beautiful and the perfect time to rent a luxury Corsica villa.
Corsica has a number of airports on the island, but the main ones are Bastia or Figari. Corsica also has six ferry ports should you wish to drive.
Hiring a car is recommended if you want to explore the delights of this incredible island yet it can be extremely busy with long queues at the airport during the summer months. Please do ask our team if you would like a luxury vehicle delivered to your private villa on arrival.
We recommend hiring a boat for the day to explore some of Corisca’s secret beaches and secluded bays. Just let us know what you’d like to do and our team will be able to organise something extra special.
Our website offers a small flavour of the many houses we work with and some of our owners prefer to remain anonymous.
