As the summer holiday season draws closer, we look at some of our best hidden gem villas on offer on the stunning island of Corsica.

Boasting some of the most remarkable landscapes in Europe, including mountainous peaks, rolling hillsides and clear blue water coastlines, this beautiful island is the perfect spot for a well-deserved getaway. And whilst many holidaymakers will choose to reside by the sandy beach or within the hustle and bustle of a historic town during their holiday to Corsica, there are plenty of reasons to venture off the beaten track and explore some of the villas we would consider to be Corsica’s best kept secrets.

Providing a number of breathtaking hidden gem villas, at Corsican Places we are sure we can find you the perfect hideaway retreat in a beautiful, rustic and often rural location. From properties perched in the mountains, to villas offering unprecedented coastal views, we’ve put together a list of hidden gem properties that should not be overlooked.
