Can I visit a great French island? Of Corsican…

There are some islands our politicians have forgotten to ban so for fear of alerting them here’s one I can get to… of Corsican!

Flights from the UK are resuming to Figari from tomorrow, August 9.

Because despite their veiled threats, and let’s remember Lyon, the epicentre of the spike is 822kms from Corsica, they haven’t quarantined them yet.

So get on this quickly.

Self-catered accommodation experts Pierre & Vacances have only increased their offerings with three new first-class residences.

Premium residence Vesna Rossa

Vensa Rossa, Les Villas de Porto Vecchio and Les Terrases d’Arsella are close to beaches and cooling pools.

Each holiday rental has a private heated pool and guests can access the Wellness Centre for a fee.

A week’s stay is from €1317/€1187 total for four people sharing a two-bedroom villa.

We all know Corsica, of course, as Napoleon’s home island.

And failing me getting to his last resting place St Helena where I was lined up for I would gladly visit his birthplace.

Les Villas de Porto-Vecchio

Les Villas boasts among other other features a barbecue area, three swimming pools and four beaches.

A week’s stay from €660/€595 total for four sharing a one-bedroom apartment.

Les Terrases places nature at the forefront while also offering creature comforts.

If you want your own private pool book one of the private houses which sleep up to eight people.

Lea Terrases d’Araella

A week’s stay from €1445/£1302 total for six people sharing a three-bedroom house.

Direct flights from London Heathrow cost from £116pp return with British Airways.

And because of our amour for France let’s revisit some favourites from the vaults.
