Corsica in January


Why visit it only in summer? Corsica is always a wonderful idea for a holiday. And January is certainly no exception. You just have to plan the vacation in the best way. In particular, in this month there are three things to do.


1. Ski

Not everyone knows it. The island of beauty is usually associated with the sea and some wonderful beaches, such as Rondinara and Palombaggia. In fact, Corsica is a great destination even for winter sports enthusiasts.

There are three places where you can spend a ski holiday in Corsica:

  • Val d’Ese
  • Monte Renoso
  • Col de Vergio

In these three ski resorts, you can find everything you could need to spend a great holiday: ski runs, ski-lifts, hotels.



2. Castles

In winter, can you imagine a more picturesque scenery than the one offered by ancient castles, standing on high rocky mountains or overlooking the beautiful sea of the island? So, you can plan to spend a couple of days visiting the three castles of Corsica:

  • Algajola
  • Corte
  • Matra



3. The villages

If what you want is the most complete tranquillity, enjoying colours and scents of nature, completely immersed in the rural life, Corsica has just the solution for you. It is the itinerary of the seven most beautiful villages:

  • Ghisoni
  • Propriano
  • Sartène
  • Castagniccia
  • Porto
  • Piana
  • Cargèse


The reasons to spend this January holiday in Corsica are really several. Now, there’s only one thing to do: book a ferry trip to Corsica.
