Blog > Why choose a villa holiday in Corsica?

Space to spread out, privacy and your very own pool: the benefits of villa holidays in Corsica are endless. Discover all the reasons to choose a villa holiday for your next Corsican escape.

Imagine waking up to a beautiful view of the sea, swimming a few morning laps in your private pool before breakfast, and sipping homemade cocktails from your sun-drenched terrace: this is a villa holiday in Corsica. Paradise!

With so many villas to choose from, with sizes to suit couples, families and groups of friends, there's a villa holiday in Corsica for everyone. In case you needed any more persuasion, here are all the reasons to book a self-catering villa holiday in Corsica with us, the destination specialists.


1. Everything you need is included in the villa price

With some lovely added extras, you will feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive at your villa. Enjoy the welcome pack which includes, water, orange juice, wine, beer, Corsican biscuits and snacks. There are also some essentials included to make your transition to your home-from-home easier, such as toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, dishcloths, washing liquid, hand soap and salt and pepper.

We also include pool towels in our villa prices, meaning you don't have to worry about taking up room in your luggage!

Within our premium villa collection, a mid-week clean is also included in your package price.

2. You'll have complete privacy

Unlike a hotel or résidence, staying in a villa means you won't need to share your space with anyone else – apart from your friends, partner or family, of course. This is perfect if you, like many of us, are looking to escape the crowds on your next holiday.

You can have as much peace and quiet as you want; many of our Corsica villas are tucked away in the mountains, miles away from resorts and beaches, while others are set right in the heart of Corsica's most popular towns. Discover our best hidden gem villas.

3. Spread out and relax

If you're a big family, staying in a hotel can sometimes feel a little cramped. Although there are great facilities in hotels, you'll always be sharing them with other guests.

A villa, on the other hand, gives every person in your group the space to truly spread out and relax. No more racing to the pool at sunrise to reserve your sunlounger!

We have villas ranging from one to six bedrooms, giving you all the space your group needs. Discover our full collection.

4. Live like the locals

Villa holidays are a great way to get a true, authentic feel of the destination you're staying in, and our villa holidays in Corsica are no different.

By buying your own food to cook at home, and exploring the island in your car rental, you'll start to feel like a true local.

Many of our villas are so comfortable and welcoming, it won't take you long to feel completely at home. This makes it incredibly difficult to leave, but oh-so-tempting to come back the following year!


5. Soak up sensational views

As a mountainous island, Corsica is well known for its panoramic scenery, and many of our villas are perfectly placed to enjoy these fantastic views.

Perched on a hillside and enjoying an incredible panoramic view of the Gulf of St Florent and the Désert des Agriates, L'Ancre Bleue's views will constantly take your breath away.

The views from Villa Kallisté are also outstanding, best enjoyed from the outdoor dining area or stunning pool. Discover our top 10 views in Corsica.

6. Dine al fresco every day

The best holidays are the ones where you enjoy all your meals – and drinks – outside, under the sizzling sun. What better way to make the most of the glorious weather?

The majority of our villas have outdoor dining facilities, summer kitchens and even barbecues, many accompanied with fantastic views, making dining al fresco every morning, afternoon and evening a no-brainer.

7. Enjoy a pool all to yourself

Water is the centre of any holiday, which is why the best part of a villa holiday is enjoying exclusive, unlimited access to a private pool. Let the pool party commence!

Most of our villas come with private pools, some larger than others and a handful of which can be heated. Discover our favourite pools in Corsica.

8.  You can stay close to the action too

While many of our villas are tucked away in the Corsican countryside, we also offer a handful of villas that are close to Corsica's major towns and beaches. These villas offer the best of both worlds: enough peace and quiet, and a convenient location.

Casarella Cesarina is a 15-minute stroll downhill to the beaches, shops and restaurant of Calvi town centre, a great choice for holidaymakers who're keen to explore more of their local area.
