An extraordinary tour of Corsica

Corsica is a land of contrasts. Wildly beautiful and full of wondrous sights. Exquisite beaches, historic cities and pickled in the past villages in lush, forested countryside peppered with snow-capped mountains. It’s a land of gastronomic delights with sun-baked vineyards. A Mediterranean island of secrets, it feels half Italian, half French and wholly gorgeous. The Girls’ Guide to Paris tour of Corsica allows you to experience all of that joie de vivre meets dolce vita in the most magnificent, memorable way…

A land of captivating contrasts

Not just a cliché – it’s a fact that Corsica is an island of captivating contrasts. Snow-capped mountains, chestnut forests, idyllic beaches and turquoise waters. Corsica certainly lives up to it’s nickname the Isle of Beauty.

There are more than 200 beaches whilst inland you’ll find lush forest, mountains and streams. In the little mountain villages farm animals roam the streets, while in the main city of Ajaccio you’ll find cultural glories by the bucket load including the largest collection of Italian paintings outside the Louvre.

This tour allows you to experience the very best of everything the island has to offer from staying in a palace to discovering the most beautiful markets, churches, museums and villages.

The staggering beauty of Corsica

When Doni Belau of Girls Guide to Paris was designing this tour she felt there was no other way to describe it better than “the staggering beauty of Corsica” tour. You’ll travel to the heart of Corsica. Learn its secrets, taste its wine and fabulous cuisine, discover its picturesque towns and villages. You’ll visit the cheerful markets and make your own moisturizing lotion using Corsica’s “immortality herb”. Indulge in wine, olive and honey tastings in vineyards. Dine at charming countryside restaurants and experience views that make your soul soar.

Visit a coral jeweller, the last one left on the island which is known as the “city of Coral”. Local legend has it that the famous red coral has the power to resist the malevolent influence of the “Evil Eye”. Explore museums, discover Napoleon Bonaparte’s ancestral home, ancient churches and artisan villages. Walk in the footsteps of the great Henri Matisse, who spent his honeymoon here, inspired to capture the beauty on canvas over and over. You’ll see just what he meant when he said of Corsica “Everything glistens, everything is colour, everything is light.”

Magical memories

Stay in an 18th century luxury farmhouse. Very luxurious, it has a fabulous spa, swimming pool in an utterly lovely location just minutes from the beaches. You won’t want to leave – until you see where you’ll be staying in the second half of your week long luxury tour. You’ll live like royalty in a former palace in Ajaccio now a stunning boutique hotel.
