Riva Bella is approximately 1540 km from Utrecht. A car (or rental car) is a good way to travel around Corsica and useful if you want to visit slightly remote places. The roads in Corsica are of good quality, but there are no motorways. To go to Corsica with your own car, you have to cross by boat in France or Italy. In these countries you have to pay toll.
Furthermore, you must be in possession of International Insurance Certificates or the green card if you are going with your own car. In France, including Corsica, it is mandatory to have an alcohol tester in the car. A Dutch driving license is sufficient, so an international driving license is not necessary.
Internatuur mediates for Corsica Ferries. You can cross at Toulon, Nice and Marseille in France and Savona or Livorno in Italy. Prices change daily, so ask us for a quote.
With the plane:
Flight time approximately 2 hours. There are options with Transavia to fly from Rotterdam/The Hague airport to Bastia on Mondays and Fridays.
Car hire :
We recommend a rental car, as the accommodation is quite remote. We mediate for Flexible Cars and Sunny Cars.
Corsica is located in the Mediterranean, just 80 kilometers from the Italian coast and only 12 kilometers from Sardinia, but it is definitely part of France. With a maximum width of 85 km and a length of 185 km, it is the third largest island in the Mediterranean. The “Île de Beauté”, as Corsica is called by the French, is an island of contrasts. Rough cliffs are found in the west. Miles of sandy beaches line the island in the east. The fields and vineyards begin behind it. These extend to the foot of the mountains, which inland turn into a high massif, which is largely formed by a protected nature reserve. Citadels, churches, castles and fortresses bear witness to an eventful history. Typical of Corsica is the beautiful plant world, which consists of more than 70 different species that occur in the Mediterranean and in the Alps. These include rare orchids and cacti and of course the Macchia, which smells wonderful in spring.
The Corsican wine is definitely worth a try. More than 2000 years ago, the ancient Greeks planted vineyards, because the soil and climate here are excellent. Internatuur has a DVD of all its naturist destinations in Corsica and a number of places of interest. Anyone who books 10 days or longer with Internatuur will receive this for free with their booking. Others can order these for € 10 each + shipping costs.
The official language in Corsica, part of France is French. Each region speaks its own dialect. In the tourist area you can go as a tourist with English.
Corsica is part of France and is part of the European Union and you can also pay with the euro here. Almost all cards for debit cards are accepted. Credit cards are also accepted.
Corsica has a Mediterranean climate. The island offers you a long summer, where the sea is pleasant in temperature and not too cold for diving.
