Blog > Episode one: Made in Chelsea in Corsica

From stunning azure waters and luxury villas, there is no surprise as to why Corsica is the luxury holiday destination of the affluent cast of Made in Chelsea.

‘I’m falling in love with Corsica already’, states one of the cast members as they cruise along a winding mountain road, backed by clear blue skies, fragrant pines and of course, remarkable scenery. Corsica is a popular destination for those seeking an exclusive retreat in the Mediterranean, away from the hustle and bustle of the large resorts you might find elsewhere in the region. Corsica may well be the new up-and-coming playground for the rich and the famous and we can see why.
