Regions in Corsica

Stretching the length of the island from Cap Corse in the north and curving down the West Coast to Bonifacio in the south, our Corsica portfolio offers an extensive variety of properties, settings and tastes. The appeal of nature draws many to the rugged beauty of Cap Corse with its distinct French atmosphere, where you can stay right below the Restonica Gorge. Alternatively, Ajaccio and the West Coast may appeal with a rural retreat in a restored mill house next to a waterfall. Further south, the towns of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio offer a more Italian character, with spacious villas offering mountain or sea views. 


  • Calvi & The Balagne
    To the north of the island, the fortress-town of Calvi offers a cosmopolitan culture within the traditional character of the walled citadel. Heading out into the surrounding countryside of The Balagne, walkers can explore terracotta-tiled villages and inhale the intoxicating scent of herbs from the legendary maquis.
