Our Company

Corsican Places is part of Serenity Holidays, a privately owned, independent holiday company also offering a number of other destinations including The Gambia, Cape Verde Islands, Senegal and Sardinia.

Serenity Holidays was set up in the late 1980’s by Stephen and initially offered just flights and holidays to The Gambia in West Africa. The Gambia continued to be the main area of specialism for Serenity until 2003 with the acquisition of Sussex based tour operator, Holiday Places. This then added a range of European destinations to the company, including mainland France and the island of Corsica.

In recent years a mix of further acquisitions and organic growth has seen the introduction of Cape Verde, Senegal and Sardinia to the Serenity Holidays portfolio.

All of our specialist holidays offer excellent value and choice. We are an independent company where emphasis is very much on quality and service.

Today Serenity Holidays employs around 70 staff in the UK at our offices in Fareham, Hampshire. Whilst we are still independently owned, Stephen and Sandra have stepped back from the day to day running of the company. Our Managing Director, Chris Rowles, now oversees the daily operation of the business in the UK and in our overseas areas.

In the autumn of 2007, Serenity Holidays success was recognised by the Travel Trade Gazette being voted Travel Company of the Year for 2007.  A couple of months later we were recognised as the runner up in Sunday Times Travel Magazine “Best Tour Operator” awards.

Serenity Holidays have been arranging holidays to Corsica for 32 years. Our sales team have the personal first-hand knowledge to help you choose the holiday best suited to your needs with our bi-lingual and knowledgeable overseas staff always at hand to help whilst on your holiday.
