In addition to its existing Stansted and Manchester to Calvi charters, Corsican Places will charter a new flight, London Heathrow – Figari with British Airways, for the first time in 2013.

NEW Properties & Hotels
Corsican Places adds to its collection throughout the year. New additions in place for the 2013 brochure include the three bedroom Villa les Oliviers, a Bergerie style property surrounded by vineyards in the Patrimonio region of North East Corsica. New villa additions in the South include the two-bedroom Casa Mia, which set in the mountains on the edge of l’Ospédale surveys the entire Gulf of Porto Vecchio. New hotels to the 2013 programme include the 5* Casadelmar, just outside Porto Vecchio, offering unsurpassed views across the bay to Cala Rossa. The facilities here are first class and include a spa, infinity pool and renowned gastronomic restaurant.
TOUR DE FRANCE IN CORSICA 2013
In 2013 the 100th edition of the Tour de France will commence in Corsica for the first time with the three stages of the race taking in 500 kilometres of the island’s unique landscape.
To celebrate this much-anticipated event, Corsican Places suggests things to see and do and places to stay to mirror the three key routes of the ride. Inspired by the Tour de France, Corsican Places will offer free bike carriage on its Stansted – Calvi charter flight.
Touring Itineraries / NEW: Walking & Cycling Holidays
Although not new to its programme, Corsican Places has outlined sample Touring Itineraries for the first time within its 2013 brochure to remind customers that they are welcome to tailor make their own exploration of the island.
Corsican Places is pleased to announce that it will be working with a Corsican specialist to provide walking (guided & self-guided) and cycling holidays in Corsica during 2013. A choice of walking or cycling ‘tours’ will be coming soon to the Corsican Places’ website, which the tour operator can package up with flights and wide range of accommodation.
Next season (2013), holidays with Corsican Places start from £399 per person (four sharing), based on seven nights self-catering in a two-bedroom apartment, including flights and transfers.
