Short Breaks in Corsica - discover the island of beauty

  Fancy a few days R and R?
Why not take a short break to the island of beauty.

With the introduction of a British Airways flight from Gatwick to Bastia on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, Corsica has now become accessible, even for those who can't afford to take more than a few days out of their busy schedule.

Stay at one of the many hotels on offer and spend a few days exploring the dramatic mountain landscapes and uncrowded sandy beaches or simply relax and unwind by a pool - the choice is yours!

We have chosen just a few of our favourite hotels and auberges within easy driving distance of the airport, but if you want to see the full range, simply click
Most of the hotels will offer stays of 3 nights or more. Click the small picture or the name to move to the full page for each hotel.

    Hotel Castel'Brando, Erbalunga ***
A really lovely old converted manor house that is now a very good quality hotel. The village of Erbalunga is just a few kilometres from Bastia - ideal for a short break
    Hotel les Arbousiers, Calvi **
A traditional little hotel just a few minutes from the centre of Calvi and the superb sandy beach. Simple but comfortable, very good value for money and a good base for couples.
  Antonia's Chambres d'hotes, Olmi-Cappella
This little place has proved very popular with everyone who has stayed there. Antonia is so friendly and welcoming, and you can even hire a donkey to help carry your picnic if you want to explore!
  Hotel le Tilbury, Porto Vecchio ***
An amazing find, this hotel is close to the heart of Porto Vecchio, but you might find it hard to tear yourselves away from the relaxing hammam, jacuzzi, swimming pool and onsight hairdresser!
  Hotel Dominique Colonna, Corte ***
What could be more relaxing than listening to the sound of the river whilst you relax by the pool and soak up the sun? Once you have refreshed yourself why not follow some of the lovely mountain trails...

British Airways operate three flights per week between Gatwick and Bastia on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Simply click the banner on the right to check availability and book your flights.   British Airways - for flights, car hire, hotels

Car Hire
Even if you plan to stay for just a few days, you really will get so much more out of your holiday if you hire a car. We use Avis, and have always found them to offer excellent value for money. Why not treat yourselves and splash out on a convertible...
