In conjunction with our long established and very successful tour of Northern Corsica, The Beautiful Isle, we bring you another road cycling holiday in France which covers the magnificent southern region of Corsica. Keen to assert their own identities, Corsica is divided into ‘Haute-Corse’ (upper Corsica) and ‘Corse-du-Sud’ (southern Corsica). The diversity of landscape allows both of them to shine in their own right and both deserve a separate visit to make the most of them!
This tour of the south is an absolute gem, taking in everything that Corse du Sud has to offer, from mountains to beaches, gorges to forests, rolling hills to needle like rock pinnacles, swanky resorts to hillside villages and winding ascents to long easy descents. From the heart of the island to the very tip in the south (only a stone’s throw from Sardinia), this trip will allow you to explore some popular attractions as well as taking you completely off the beaten track to experience traditional Corsican life.  
Starting in Bastia on the Cap Corse our route heads south, winding inland and rising above the Gollo valley giving tremendous views over the Castagniccia chestnut forest, down to the sea. Our journey bisects the island before hitting the coast near Porticcio where we spend the night within earshot of the waves of the Mediterranean. After following the south west coast we cut inland to cross Corsica and reach the east coast which we follow north, aiming for Bastia.
The riding here is a little tougher than our trip in the north of Corsica but no less dramatic and enjoyable with a great mix of rolling coastal roads and more challenging ascents through the wooded interior of the island showcasing the quality and variety The Beautiful Isle has to offer.
