Enjoy a holiday in stunning Corsica with Corsican Places
THE INDEPENDENT TOUR OPERATOR HAS LAUNCHED ITS FLIGHTS TO THE EXCLUSIVE ISLAND FROM STANSTED AIRPORT
IT is described as the island of beauty and for good reason - Corsica has spectacular scenery, unspoilt beauty, captivating culture and a long history.
With French and Italian influences, the island boasts crystal clear seas, often with the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains, along with plenty of historical landmarks, including citadels, Genoese towers and cathedrals.
Because it is not heavily populated, Corsica offers visitors a chance to enjoy uncrowded days out, whether that is on the beach or in the surrounding seaside towns and charming, sleepy villages.
What also makes the destination appealing is the short-haul flight, just under two hours.
After two years of not flying to the island due to the pandemic, Corsican Places is back with vacations from London Stansted so you can enjoy the holiday of your dreams.
Whether you are looking for a hotel, an apartment, a private villa or to be part of a larger complex, the independent tour operator has something to suit everyone.
The company has its own chartered flight to Corsica and considers itself a specialist to the island, where it has overseen holidays there for 35 years.
Its staff visit annually so they understand the island first-hand and there is an experienced resort team in place to support holidaymakers who can make the most of their first-hand knowledge and personal recommendations whilst on holiday, plus they’re always around to help with any queries.
With Sunday morning flights into Calvi and a stop at its capital Ajaccio, birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte, you can have a transfer or hire a car to get you to your accommodation.
Most visitors hire a vehicle, which gives them the freedom to fully explore all the island has to offer.
Calvi airport is just ten minutes from the town and means you can be anywhere on the north coast in a short time, while Ajaccio opens up access to the west coast.
You can choose from a collection of family villas with a pool, mini villas within a complex with a shared pool, apartments or a hotel across the island.
Holidaymakers can experience all the region has to offer, discovering authentic and traditional Corsican roots in its cuisine and character, its arts - which include varied music festivals - and its architecture.
Visitors will enjoy breathtaking views, from its mountain landscapes to its forests and its coastline. Whether you prefer a relaxing time on the beach or want an adventurous sports tour, you will get to see some stunning sights.
There is an abundance of outdoor adventure opportunities in Corsica - from hiking the world-famous GR 20 trail which goes across the island, to climbing, cycling, paragliding and a range of water sports.
Corsica has a history that spans more than 5,000 years - The old streets of Calvi and Bonifacio are worth meandering through to transport you back in time.
Meanwhile everywhere you look there is evidence of Ajacco’s links to the Emperor, with Napoleon’s family home and now a museum in the city. Its horseshoe bay is next to the old town.
Family-owned Corsican Places prides itself on its customer-focused approach and in-depth destination knowledge. It is fully bonded with ABTA and ATOL protection.
