A warm welcome awaits in Corsica - whether you’re looking for white sandy beaches, snow-capped mountains, challenging hikes or breath-taking landscapes, Corsica offers it all. With over 200 beaches to choose from and an average temperature of 25°C, it’s an ideal family holiday destination and is also a great base for day trips to Sardinia.

Our collection of luxury villas in Corsica are family friendly and ideally placed for exploring this beautiful island.





With an average of 300 days of sunshine each year and countless white sandy beaches, it’s easy to see why Corsica has been a particularly popular European holiday destination choice for a number of years. Add to that enough history to keep even the most avid historian amused, mountains challenging enough for the fittest hikers and Mediterranean cuisine which is out of this world and you have an island which offers pretty much something for everyone.

Its 620 mile coastline is dotted with fishing villages and sheltered inlets and coves as well as larger and more commercialised beaches. The beaches are clean and the crystal clear Mediterrean sea that laps their shores could rival any seen in the Caribbean. Coastal paths make for ideal gentle walks and are a great way to explore the island and discover some of the smaller beaches and the breezes which cool the warm summer days are ideal for water sports including windsurfing, kite surfing and wake boarding.

A&K’s selection of luxury villas in Corsica are hand-picked to ensure you make the most of your stay here with everything from private pools to private chefs. All are ideally located to ensure you make the most of your stay on this beautiful Mediterranean ‘Mountain in the Sea’.

Venaco is the place to head in May if you like your cheese. This town hosts a local produce fair each year which celebrates rural cheeses and is a very tasty way to spend an afternoon. Knowledge of the fair has grown over recent years thanks to its feature on Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes.
