Corsica is regarded by some as the jewel of the Mediterranean islands and is made up of two départements: Haute Corse (upper Corsica) and Corse du Sud (southern Corsica). The island has endured a bloody history, having being much disputed by the Greeks, Romans and Lombards. Five hundred years of Italian rule has influenced the look of the island with Italian-style hilltop hamlets and villages developed alongside mountain springs. Many of the villages feature rustic, unadorned churches and also a few Romanesque examples too.
The variety of scenery is spectacular. Across much of this stunning island of France one can discover dramatic gorges, glacial lakes, gushing mountain torrents and magnificent pine and chestnut forests. You’ll also experience the celebrated perfume of the Corsican maquis: a tangled undergrowth of fragrant herbs, flowers and bushes that fills the warm spring and summer air.
Campsite like Camping Torraccia and Camping Restonica are situated not far from the the highest mountains which lie to the west, whilst down the south campsite like Camping U-Farniente de Pertamina Village and Camping Campo di offer a more relaxed camping experience.
