Corsica Touring Holidays

If you are looking for independence and prefer to spend your holiday travelling around Corsica rather than staying in one location, we can suggest various routes to follow and the best hotels for you to stay in.

Touring holidays offer the freedom of travelling at your own pace, allowing you to explore as much or as little of the island as you like. Our sample itineraries visit some of the most beautiful and most contrasting areas of Corsica: from white sandy beaches to Genoese architecture, from stylish sea-facing restaurants to precipitous mountain retreats, and from sky-scraping forests to secluded bays – hidden from all but the most prying of eyes. And for a different experience, why not indulge in a Corsica Sardinia twin-centre holiday? These itineraries provide just a taster of the many options available; our expert team are happy to put together a tailor-made holiday designed to suit your requirements.

Sardinia & Corsica Twin Centre

A twin centre holiday combining the south of Corsica with northern Sardinia is simple as the two islands are separated by just 11km and a regular ferry service transports cars and people between the two in less than an hour.

From the glamour of the Costa Smeralda to the beauty of the mountainous interior, it is a popular destination for both those who love water sports and beach life as well of those who are looking to explore the mountainous interior. Sardinia, like Corsica, is not only known for its unspoilt natural beauty and geographical position but also for its history, with Neolithic sites as well as the traces of the many invaders that have marked the island's history. 

Discover the dramatic scenery of North East Sardinia
Fly to Corsica and catch the ferry in Bonifacio to Santa Teresa (50 minute crossing). Spend a few days in North East Sardinia and you will be rewarded with a variety of landscapes from stunning picture-postcard beaches to dramatic mountains, as well as historical sites, glamorous seaside resorts and local villages. Top things not to miss in the area include beach-hopping on the Costa Smeralda, tasting authentic food in one of the agriturismi (farm-restaurants), attending one of the local festivals, exploring the wild Galluran mountains or go sailing around the spectacular islands of la Maddalena – the choice is yours!
Stay 3 nights in Hotel Arathena 4* in San Pantaleo – Bed & Breakfast

Explore the arresting Southern coast of Corsica
