just one thing, a Corsican is not a French who talks like an italian, but Corsican is an Italian who talks like a French..
many thanks

Dave so jealous you got to go, I love those blues in your photos. Corsica was my top vacation destination when I moved to Paris and I haven’t made it happen in two years.

I spent 8 weeks one summer when I was 19 on this beautiful island with my aunt and her Corsican husband. Also, my grandfather was Corsican. =)

Two years ago, while I was in Paris, I was able to get into booked restaurants and such because my cousin told the owners I was Corsican. Apparently if you have Corsican blood you are “family.” I also did not have to pay. It was very interesting to me. I can’t wait to take my kids there.

Corsica is one of the the most beautiful places I have EVER been. Dramatic scenery, beaches, mountains and the food is amazing.

my childhood friend had family in corsica and would spend her summers there. I was always so jealous. It’s so so so beautiful!

Ohhhh… I’ve wanted to go to Corsica for so long and these amazing photos do nothing to alleviate my wanderlust!

These images are stunning. It looks like the perfect getaway.

PS- I love your blog. I read my newsletter religiously. I wish I could spend so much time in Paris/ France.

We spent one of our most enjoyable holidays there, just out of season.Fantastic place to which I would love to return, even though we lost our luggage, which stayed in Paris having its own holiday.

gorgeous photos!

Wow!!!! I must visit someday. Interesting story about the fire, glad to know the house was spared. Your photos are fantastic. Corsica looks absolutely beautiful!

Best place I have ever visited! <3
OMG and the food? Forget it=amazing!

I had a Coquille St Jacques calzone overlooking the sea that I will remember until the day I die.

Fantastic article and great images, I especially love the dog on the door steps 😉

I can’t wait to go back. Thank you for the fabulous images Dave!

Well written and interesting! 🙂

Also the hometown of Garance Doré, famed fashion blogger and photographer =)

Takes me back to last year’s Corsica getaway!! Definitely a gift to France.

Oh, my, these are the pictures of our vacation 17(!) years ago :). Thank you for recalling memories.

Great shots…and I agree, Corsica is a little, if not a bit feisty, gem…xv
