If you have the chance to spend a few days in Corsica soon or if we have just triggered this desire ;-) don't forget our mini guide: we collect here our good addresses on the Isle of Beauty. The choice is huge, so we only offer you addresses that have been tested and approved by the team.
What period for a short stay in Corsica ?
The summer time is obviously pleasant but it is not necessarily the best time to enjoy it.
Spring is ideal for hiking, boating and visiting all the pretty villages without them being crowded yet. We advise you to take the holidays in May or the most beautiful month of the year: June to enjoy the sun in peace and quiet! For a roadtrip, it's really the best time !
September is the perfect month to enjoy the sea! The water has been hot all summer and even if it is cooler you can surely enjoy a very pleasant Indian summer.
February in Corsica ? Why not especially that it is possible to ski or snowshoe! Be careful, however, at this time of year when many businesses and establishments take their annual holidays.
What activities for athletes ?
There are so many sports activities in nature, it's paradise! But the best is still hiking, to enjoy the magnificent landscapes and adapt your tour to your desires and level. For your hikes (thematic or not), GR20, mountain trails, cultural & historical discovery of Corsica, you can contact Altezza Rando (Mountain Leader & Conference Guide) to accompany you and create a tailor-made tour (+33 (0)6 21 28 59 89).
It is also possible to sail (especially at the CESM Saint Florent Sailing club), Paddle, Kayak... You will have understood it, the choice is big !
