    Jane's verdict:

    Corsica has a delicious sophistication and old world charm that only the French could achieve slap bang in the Med. For powder white sand without the long-haul flight, this is the island for you, with beaches like Palombaggia. Throw in dramatic mountains, historic towns and fabulous cuisine, and Napoleon’s birthplace makes perfect sense.

    Simpson Travel says

    We rate ourselves as the leading specialists to this, the Mediterranean’s most beguiling island. We love its wildly spectacular scenery, the intoxicating herbal scent of the maquis, the spectacular beaches, great food and the high quality of accommodation.

    • Great for foodies
    • Handpicked hotels
    • Self-catering options

    We have handpicked a selection of the best hotels, villas and apartments including some which are ideal for a honeymoon.

    Top of the list are these two ultra-romantic hideaways. Moulin des Calanques is a one-bedroom restored mill house. It’s in one of the most stunning positions we’ve ever seen. Swim in your own private rock pool under a waterfall and take a drive – a car is included – to the great little restaurant up the road and to laze on the nearby beach.

    Casa Barrachi is a restored bergerie with a private pool and rural views that will leave you speechless. It’s tucked away, offering complete privacy, and yet it’s an easy drive from Figari, Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio.

    Other intimate villas with a private pool include Le Hameau Sant’Andria just outside St Florent. U Piazzale is a charming restored shepherd’s bergerie with great sea views. For a complete escape, hide away in the middle of the maquis in stylish Mon Cabanon.

    If you would prefer an apartment within walking distance of the beach and plenty of restaurants, options include La Casa Bianca in Pinarello and the very stylish Le Maria Venezia in the heart of Ile Rousse.

    If a hotel is more your style, check out our collection which includes a private island resort, beachfront hotel and a country hotel which oozes contemporary style.
