Holidays near historic towns and villages in Corsica

From the dramatic citadels of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio in the south to northern Calvi's atmospheric Old Town, a holiday in the historic towns and villages of Corsica is to experience a more elegant take on the past – and you'll find many traces of ancient civilisations on the island, from the Neolithic era onwards.

While you can lose yourself in the stories of invaders and conquests that are woven into the narrow winding streets or admire the arts and crafts along the Route des Artisans that unites The Balagne's ancient hilltop villages, you're also never far away from the pleasures of contemporary life. A holiday in Corsica's historic towns and villages is a chance to explore a rich cultural heritage combined with upmarket boutiques, fine dining and museums and galleries that tell the story of the past in neatly curated, fascinating displays.

Ajaccio is Napoleon's birthplace and still celebrates its favourite son with statues and streets named in his honour, whilst austere Sartène, with its memories of pirates and gangsters, is now also famous for its fine wines and spectacular surrounding countryside.

For families choosing to holiday in Corsica's historic towns and villages, there's a wealth of distractions, not least the close proximity of many stunning beaches, particularly the Caribbean-style coastlines of the south. For couples the chance to wander hand in hand, in search of upmarket eateries or a spot to watch the sun set over honey-coloured stone buildings is a treat not to be missed.
