The French island of Corsica is our closest Mediterranean island and was the UK’s first package holiday destination back in the 1950s, however despite this it remains a mystery to most Britons. It is refreshingly unspoilt and uncommercialised with a fantastic summer climate and beautiful landscape. Just over an hour and a half from the UK, it is an ideal choice for families and the gently shelving beaches are perfect for young children.
Corsican Places is a specialist UK-based operator offering the widest range of quality holidays to Corsica, featuring more properties than any other operator.

Each member of Corsican Places’ reservations team has visited Corsica on at least one occasion and between them they have visited all the regions and the majority of properties featured.

Corsican Places unrivalled personal service is continued when your holiday begins - their team of representatives in Corsica are not simply brought in for a summer season, they either live on the island permanently or return year after year. They share a passion for the island and have a wealth of local knowledge which they are only too happy to share to ensure customers make the most out of their holiday. Some of our reps are English, some French and some Corsican but all are bi-lingual should you need a little help with the local language. After meeting guests on arrival at the airport, representatives contact all guests at least once during their stay. However, should you need them you can contact them but if you would prefer not to be contacted, just let them know. They are there for you as little or as much as you need.
All Corsican Places customers are provided with a booklet giving more information about Corsica and on arrival at their property they will find a Corsican Places folder giving detailed information on what to see and do in the area, local restaurants, events such as fetes and music festivals, train details and much more. In addition, guests in self-catering properties receive a welcome pack of groceries.
