Corsica is well known for its charming mix of Franco-Italian culture, but when it comes to great value family holidays, the island’s true French identity is unmistakable. Gîtes de France Corsica have been responsible for decades worth of fantastic Corsican holidays, and now have over 1200 properties listed across the island, from beachfront apartments to mountain cottages, cosy farmhouses, and country campsites.

Every single property meets the same high quality standards that Gîtes de France have maintained since 1951, and they’re all easier than ever to book online. But, with over a thousand gîtes to choose from in Corsica alone, you could probably use a little help. So here are ten of the best for families, recommended by Gîtes de France Corsica, and starting out at just £315 for seven nights, for a family of four.
