"I stayed with my family at Casa Monica in June 2014 and had a fabulous family holiday. We split it 50/50 activity/relaxing time and ended up jet skiing off Pinarello beach, taking a boat trip around Bonifacio and best of all doing the Via Ferrata near Buccerona."
Maxine Moylette, Marketing Executive
"I have been with my family to Corsica twice now, and I have no doubt at all that we will be returning again. A couple of years ago we stayed in Casa Cassaninca in Calvi, perfectly situated with just a 15 minute walk into Calvi or 20 minute walk to the beach. We found that some of the best times we had were spent relaxing around our private pool which had a stunning view of Calvi Citadel. We were also lucky enough to be there for Bastille Day on 14th July and had prime view of the amazing firework display, definitely worth watching!"
David Williams, Head of Marketing
"I’ve been to Corsica a few times now with my wife and three children, one of the main reasons we keep coming back is the beautiful safe beaches. My favourite is Santa Giulia Beach about 15 minutes from Porto Vecchio. Car parking spaces are somewhat limited to the northern side of the beach so better to approach from one of the southern roads leading off the N19."
Natalie Wheldrake, Sales Team Leader
"I was in the south this year, villa - Casa Di Pruno, and went on a lovely short boat trip around Bonifacio (45 mins) - and then spent the rest of the evening walking around Bonifacio."
Activities which are great for children, from younger to older…
