I’d never heard of Corsica either. My parents wanted us to join them on the family holiday but as there was so many of us working in the group, it was proving challenging to find somewhere until a month or so before we were due to go away, the text from dad arrived. Corsica was our destination, and we were staying in a villa in the mountains of Saint Florent!
Although mum and dad kept most of the holiday a surprise, initial research of the destination didn’t disappoint. I was expecting domineering mountains speckled with green, crystal blue seas and white sandy beaches. I was sold.
I’ll let the pictures do the talking, but it’s safe to say we had the best time. It was the perfect destination for lazy days reading in the sunshine, warm evenings for family barbecues, and has just enough to keep us entertained when we went for a stroll in the baking heat. See the bottom of this post for a couple of recommendations.
Le Petit Caporal – my parents ate here one night and we ate here on our last night. Would definitely recommend – the cocktails are great, the food is delicious and the service was top.
Plage Du Lotu – is the white sandy beach you can see on some of the pictures. It was beautiful there, you can access the beach via a 15 minute boat trip and it’s not too expensive depending on what time of year you go.
Plage de Saleccia – is meant to be one of the nicest beaches on the Island but is pretty pricey to get there via boat, and you have to book at week in advance at least (which we sadly found out!)
