Are you currently in amongst wedding plans and looking for the perfect romantic honeymoon? If you’ve not yet considered Corsica, we’re here to tell you why this little French island just two hours away is a wonderful choice for an unforgettable break…
Why choose Corsica for your honeymoon?
Firstly, you needn’t worry about the sunshine – with average summertime temperatures between 25 and 28 degrees C, you’ll certainly get that dose of vitamin D that most of us crave when venturing on holiday. Secondly, many of the beaches on the island are comparable to the Caribbean, with crystal clear waters and fine white sand. Take Santa Giulia in southern Corsica as an example, its shallow waters and beautiful surrounding scenery speak for themselves.

If you’re still not quite convinced, how about embarking on a hiking adventure? With many trails to explore within the hills and mountains, you can venture into the wild and admire Corsica’s natural beauty, away from the typical tourist spots.
On top of all of this, we can’t forget to mention the food. With local markets aplenty selling tasty local produce, and restaurants which offer superb French and international cuisine, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste.

Close to the northern town of St Florent, La Dimora is a converted 18th century farmhouse offers a tranquil and personalised honeymoon holiday, with stunning views of the surrounding hills and mountains.

A stylish and intimate one bedroom villa, Casa Acciani is perfectly positioned to enjoy the best of both worlds.

An elegant apartment with fantastic views, Studio Castille provides the rare opportunity to stay in one of Calvi Citadel’s age-old houses. With second to none views across Calvi bay, and being in heart of the bustling town and its glorious expanse of white sand beach, a honeymoon here will provide an authentic and unforgettable Corsican experience.
