Corsica

Corsica Couples Holiday

Corsica is a fantastic holiday destination for couples. Corsica has beautiful, picturesque locations, stunning beaches and characteristic villages. There are hundreds of options when it comes to accommodation. Studios are a great idea for couples as well as villas, apartments, hotels and bed and breakfasts. For those that love the outdoors there are also campsites in the more rural areas. Bastia is a great place to stay for good local restaurants. The harbour is the 'in' place to spend your evenings, after a nice meal the Quai des Martyrs de la Liberation is a great place to have a nice stroll and see the best views of the harbour. There are some great beaches in the area as well. Corsica has a deep culture that the islanders are very proud of and Porto-vecchio is a great place to get involved in this. It is largely the renowned beaches and coastline to the south of the town that are the big attraction, but the town itself also merits investigation. The marina is very attractive, with lovely cafes and restaurants overlooking the harbour, and the old town next to the Place de la Republique has some beautiful ancient buildings. During the summer evenings especially, the streets of the old town come to life with music and entertainment and it’s here that you’ll feel the Italian influence the most. There are some fun activities to get involved in also such as cycling, windsurfing, snorkelling and visiting the roman and Greek ruins on the island. There is a brilliant train experience to be had on the Trinicellu, or ‘Little Train’. This is a narrow gauge railway that runs along the coast between Calvi and Bastia. The journey takes about 50 minutes between Calvi and Ile Rousse, the two main resorts in the Balagne, and is an experience not to be missed. The service also runs between Ponte Lecchia and Ajaccio. This route passes through some of the most incredible scenery on the island. The limited schedule means that it's not practical to do a round trip in a day. However, a great thing to do as a couple is to stay overnight in Bastia or Ajaccio. The area between Corndte and Bocognano is regarded as one of the most impressive sections on the railway, Corte and Bocognano. The route ranks as one of the most scenic railways in the world. Corsica is a beautiful island to explore with your partner and you will find some of the most beautiful places in Europe on this island as well as beautiful places to stay.

Sardinia

Sardinia Couples Holiday

With over 1800km of coastline and a situation equidistant between Italy and Tunisia, Sardinia lies in the heart of the Mediterranean. It has an exclusive reputation and an exquisite coastline, making Sardinia is the perfect place to spend a romantic holiday or honeymoon on the beach or surrounded by nature.

The only minus is that Sardinia is not the ideal destination if you are a couple on a budget. Sardinia is quite a costly holiday destination and accommodation, although beautiful, is expensive. Search our Sardinia accommodation deals for the latest hotel and self-catered holiday villa offers.

Below is an introduction to each of the areas in Sardinia – all of which are excellent choices for those looking for a relaxing couples holiday.

Alghero & the North West
Sardinia’s north west coast shelters the most attractive seaside resorts on the island, interspersed with some really spectacular coastline – from dramatic rugged cliffs to dazzling sandy beaches. Alghero is a popular resort town in this area, with a distinctive Catalan character, quaint narrow streets and a charming harbour-front; ideal for romantic walks.

Central Sardinia
Wild and remote, the landscapes of Central Sardinia are spectacular, with valleys, gorges, canyons, forests and towering mountain peaks. Sardinian culture has been more preserved here than elsewhere on the island so you can be sure to experience the real Sardinian way of life in the local towns and untouched mountain villages. It could be said that if you were to go looking for the ‘real’ Sardinia you would head for the mountainous heart of the island – here is where you will find the rural Sardinians living life much as it was at the turn of the last century. The coastal part of this region also has some of the island’s best beaches and some stunning cliffs; perfect for couples looking for a holiday retreat.

Southern Sardinia
It has taken much longer for visitors to discover the incredibly wild, beautiful and unspoilt region of Southern Sardinia. Outside of the busy capital and port of Cagliari the south is less commercialised than the north of the island; and the southern coastline boasts stunning beaches and crystal clear seas. It is teeming with dramatic mountain ranges, interesting wildlife and prehistoric sites.
This region’s real lures are its pristine, untouched beaches that punctuate most of the southern coastline. Yet there is a good deal else to draw couples here: the dramatic sweep of the inland Sulcis mountains, the character filled town of Pula with its neat piazza and fine restaurants; and the capital itself which throbs with typical Sardinian energy.
