Corsica: Couples Holiday
A little slice of heaven (out of peak season)
Corsica is a fantastic holiday destination for couples. Corsica has beautiful, picturesque locations, stunning beaches and characteristic villages. There are hundreds of options when it comes to accommodation. Studios are a great idea for couples as well as villas, apartments, hotels and bed and breakfasts. For those that love the outdoors there are also campsites in the more rural areas. Bastia is a great place to stay for good local restaurants. The harbour is the 'in' place to spend your evenings, after a nice meal the Quai des Martyrs de la Liberation is a great place to have a nice stroll and see the best views of the harbour. There are some great beaches in the area as well. Corsica has a deep culture that the islanders are very proud of and Porto-vecchio is a great place to get involved in this. It is largely the renowned beaches and coastline to the south of the town that are the big attraction, but the town itself also merits investigation. The marina is very attractive, with lovely cafes and restaurants overlooking the harbour, and the old town next to the Place de la Republique has some beautiful ancient buildings. During the summer evenings especially, the streets of the old town come to life with music and entertainment and it’s here that you’ll feel the Italian influence the most. There are some fun activities to get involved in also such as cycling, windsurfing, snorkelling and visiting the roman and Greek ruins on the island. There is a brilliant train experience to be had on the Trinicellu, or ‘Little Train’. This is a narrow gauge railway that runs along the coast between Calvi and Bastia. The journey takes about 50 minutes between Calvi and Ile Rousse, the two main resorts in the Balagne, and is an experience not to be missed. The service also runs between Ponte Lecchia and Ajaccio. This route passes through some of the most incredible scenery on the island. The limited schedule means that it's not practical to do a round trip in a day. However, a great thing to do as a couple is to stay overnight in Bastia or Ajaccio. The area between Corndte and Bocognano is regarded as one of the most impressive sections on the railway, Corte and Bocognano. The route ranks as one of the most scenic railways in the world. Corsica is a beautiful island to explore with your partner and you will find some of the most beautiful places in Europe on this island as well as beautiful places to stay.
