Well named 'Isle of Beauty', Corsica is simply heaven on Earth. Endless coastlines, idyllic beaches and abrupt mountains as far as the eye can see. The countryside is very well preserved and the Mediterranean climate makes this one of the favorite destinations for tourists. So, if property in Corsica is a little more expensive than some regions, it represents a good investment because rental property is very much sought after. Apartments represent almost half of the available property, but there are also houses for sale in the towns, at more affordable prices than villas. For sports people: subaqua diving and the 'GR20', the name of this mythical hiking trail.
