Best places to stay in Corsica

Visiting Corsica for the Beautiful Beaches

Corsica's southern coast has the gentler scenery and fine, white sand, and if you're a beach lover this is where you'll find some of the best places to stay in Corsica.

Porto-Vecchio is one of the best places to stay in Corsica if you want to be close to tropical style beaches.

The island's norther cape also has some excellent beaches and beach resorts. Heading up from the busy, modern port of Bastia are the smaller fishing villages and beach resorts. Centuri and Brando among the small towns.

Some of the best beaches in Corsica are:

⁃ St Restitude Beach, near Calvi

⁃ Santa Giulia Beach, south from Porto-Vecchio

⁃ Palombaggia Beach, 15mins from Porto-Vecchio

⁃ Saleccia Beach, only accessible by boat from Saint-Florent

  • If you've come to the island to relax then Le Roc e Fiori is one of the best places to stay in Corsica. Nestled between the mountains and the beach, just outside Porto-Vecchio, this hotel has a lovely relaxing vibe, from the pastel shades to the tranquil green gardens and the excellent spa facilities.
  • The Demeure Castel Brando, is only steps from the beach and is one of the best places to stay in Corsica for families. Its 45 rooms are served by several pools and plenty of public space so it'll always feel as if you have a corner to yourself.

Best Places to stay in Corsica for the Unique Culture

Staunchly Corsican, the mountain towns of Corte and Bastelica are amongst the best places to stay in Corsica if you want to experience this island's dramatic interior.

Corte's mountain setting is spectacular, and its proximity to several major rivers and grand gorges and valleys mean it's one of the best places to stay in Corsica for hikers, climbers,mountain bikers and general thrill seeekers.

  • Hotel Artemisia's amazing mountain views make it one of the best places to stay in Corsia for photographers. Its own design is probably worth capturing too - they've gone for basic chic. So white rooms with huge skylights and huge windows to let in as much of the beautiful surroundings as possible.

Corsican Elegance

Ajaccio is something like the Cote d'Azur used to be: classy and confident. The pale coloured buildings of the centre have charm. The cafes buzz. The marina is large and the boats impress. Making Ajaccio one of the best places to stay in Corsica to appreciate the island's relaxed, but stylish, atmosphere. This is also where Napoleon Bonaparte was born.

  • If you like Agatha Christie books where people stay in small, elegant hotels right on the beach, the Hotel Demeure les Mouettes is one of the best places to stay in Corsica for you. Converted, gently, from a 19th Century villa on the western fringes of Ajaccio, this hotel has all the pillars, sun terraces, views and sun loungers Poirot would expect. And the golden sand and safe waters of the hotel's beach makes it one of the best places to stay in Corsica for families.

Calvi is another of the best places to stay in Corsica to appreciate this island's French Riviera flavour. Once a great Geonese port, many of the buildings are more fortress than palace, but they lend a graceful backdrop to the massive yachts and cruisers of the marina. The cafe and restaurants are upmarket to cater to the yacht owners.

  • If you prefer intimate accommodation The Manor is a great choice. This gorgeous B&B on the edge of Calvi has stunning views and most importantly only four rooms. Which also makes it one of the best places to stay in Corsica for couples looking for romance. The gardens are beautiful, but so is the house! Stone walls, marble floors, vast arched windows, and all pretty much to yourself. You'll feel like royalty.
