A stone-faced Corsican.
Holidays in Corsica
Corsica is a small, rugged island in the Mediterranean Sea about four hours by ferry southeast of Nice in southern France. It’s about 160 kms/100miles long and 80kms/50miles at its widest.
The birthplace of Napoleon and still French territory in spite of local demands for independence, Corsica is a popular holiday target not only for French travellers but also European tourists in search of a mild climate, warm seas, piles of fine sandy beaches and dramatic hiking trails through an unspoilt and picturesque landscape of mountainous red and grey granite outcrops separated by huge swathes of pines and eucalyptus trees.
