4 | For more information or to book online visit corsica.co.uk WHY ELSE SHOULD YOU BOOK WITH THE EXPERTS? THE ISLAND OF BEAUTY A stunning island of breathtaking natural beauty, fascinating history, rich culture, fabulous cuisine and a mesmerising coastline of over 1,000km; Corsica is sure to capture the heart of all that set foot on its shores. Despite being the closest Mediterranean island to the UK, with a flight time of just over two hours, Corsica remains something of a mystery to most.

Sitting some 160km off the French coast and 80km from Italy, Corsica is geographically tuned to Italy, but it’s France who governs it, ensuring that the island presents a unique blend of French and Italian characteristics, though the people and the places that define Corsica most definitely retain a unique and distinct personality. Laid-back and with a lack of pretention, Corsica is one of the most wonderful and rewarding islands in the Mediterranean. It’s steeped in tradition, with the culture bearing witness to the island’s often turbulent past, perhaps a reason why Corsicans are such proud, generous and free-spirited people.

The rich and chequered history of Corsica manifests itself around every corner, presented in the form of some fascinating architecture, unique polyphonic singing and an abundance of festivals throughout the year.

One of the biggest draws for those visiting Corsica is its glorious coastline, home to close to 200 beaches. Thanks to the island’s diverse landscapes, there’s a real variety of coastline to visit too. From secluded coves and vast sandy bays, to dramatic seascapes like the plunging red granite pinnacles of the west coast and the dazzling white cliffs of Bonifacio; each mile of Corsica’s coastline holds new treasures and surprises. Inland, you’ll discover scenes just as dramatic as those around the coast, one of the reasons why around a third of the island is designated national park. Home to the highest mountains and greatest number of rivers of any Mediterranean island, the highest peaks reach nearly 3,000m, with around twenty peaks over 2,000m.

Corsica is cut by deep gorges, dissected by cascading streams and surrounded by fragrant pine forests that cover the mountains, providing the perfect playground for adventurers and outdoor sport enthusiasts of all levels.

So, whether you’re looking for a traditional family beach holiday, a self-drive holiday discovering the breathtaking mountain scenery, a romantic break right in the heart of an atmospheric citadel, or a more energetic, activity-filled experience – Corsica has something for everyone. Let us share our passion and love for this astonishing place with you; we’ve hand-picked a great range of Corsican properties for you to choose from, as well as put together a wide selection of tailor-made holidays to best help you explore the diversity of this quintessentially Mediterranean island.

My Corsica highlight has to be the town of Porto Vecchio in the south. Up on the hill there are cobbled squares and busy cafés, loads of shops and really great restaurants, some of which have beautiful views over the marina. I love the wild and rugged expanses that Corsica seems to boast at every turn. I spent a day driving around Cap Corse during a stay in St Florent where I was met by secluded hilltop villages, deserted sandy bays and age-old fishing villages, and not another tourist in sight. I loved the ever-changing landscapes. It blew my mind that you could be in the mountains and then in just a short drive with the most magnificent views, you could be down at a fabulous white sand beach.

I love the beaches in Corsica, especially in L’lle Rousse. The crystal-clear water is calm and gently shelved, perfect for when you have little ones. Taking in the main sights as I travel across Corsica is always rewarding, but a real treat is occasionally taking the road less travelled and stumbling upon things I would otherwise never have seen. Ask yourself ‘I wonder what’s down here?’ In Corsica you’ll invariably be surprised! I just love Corsica’s laid-back chic – pretty squares, narrow streets, historic buildings, welcoming restaurants, delicious food and stunning beach and mountain vistas – a highlight being the train journey from east to west showcasing the island’s wild and lush interior and mesmerising coastline.

Some of the best views of the town can be found from the citadel, overlooking the yachts, bay and surrounding mountains, plus the beach also shares some of these fantastic panoramas.

Delving into Calvi’s colourful array of buildings, you’ll discover a thriving café culture, where lively eateries are backed by narrow cobbled streets. Exploring these backstreets reveals a new little shop or quaint restaurant at every turn, and be sure to uncover the ample ice-cream parlours, where you can sample some of the best Corsican ice cream (with a little Italian twist). For the beach lovers, Calvi’s more than simply crystalline water and soft sand. There are pedalos, kayaks and sailing boats to rent, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the water, even if you’re not a keen swimmer.

During the evenings when the sun is setting, some of the beachside cafés transform into top-class restaurants. Why not enjoy a romantic meal directly on the sands, with a night-time view of the Citadel high above in all its glistening glory?

Lumio, Sant’Ambroggio, Algajola & Marine de Davia The Balagne coastline has some truly stunning beaches, adding lots of appeal for a visit to one or more of these seaside villages. Easy to hop between on the ‘little train’ which runs between Calvi and I’Ile Rousse and all retaining the same picturesque mountain backdrop as Calvi, these villages are more rustic at heart, providing holidaymakers with a charming base for a relaxing break. L’Ile Rousse Boasting laid-back vibes and a bustling local produce market, this authentic town is one of Corsica’s true gems. Its white-sand beach with crystal-clear water provides a beautiful setting for sunbathing, and with locals carrying on with their daily business, you can watch (or join in with) a game of pétanque in the square or get to know them during an evening apéritif beneath the plane trees.

Villages of la Balagne Towering above the coast and offering a glimpse into the traditional way of Corsican life, these authentic villages are rich with artisans, local produce and unlimited stunning viewpoints. Villages such as Speloncato, Sant’Antonino and Corbara make for perfect examples – each clinging to and perched upon hilltops offering sublime 360-degree panoramas. You can explore these villages and more by embarking on scenic drives, hopping between each village, or perhaps you’d rather get active and do some walking to discover some of the beautiful landscapes on foot?

CALVI CALVI AIRPORT L’ILE ROUSSE LUMIO ALGAJOLA SANT’ANTONINO ST FLORENT & THE NORTH EAST St Florent A classy waterfront town found nestled between and providing easy access to the Désert des Agriates and the Cap Corse peninsula, St Florent is home to a chic marina and delightful old town.

Its intimate and laid-back atmosphere alongside a wonderful variety of shops and restaurants never fails to charm its visitors, and with boat trips departing the marina throughout the summer to stunning local beaches such as Saleccia and Loto, this resort offers something perfect for every holidaymaker. Patrimonio & Oletta If you’re looking for a taste of unspoilt Corsica whilst not being far away from St Florent, Patrimonio and Oletta tick all the boxes. If the beautiful hillside scenery where rolling vineyards and pretty churches reside isn’t enough to tempt you, you’re still within a short driving distance of some great beaches to relax on for the day.

Cap Corse To the north of the island is where the wild and rugged Cap Corse can be found. A long peninsula which is split into two by the Serra mountain range, it’s a historic land of Genoese watchtowers, pretty fishing villages, enchanting perched hamlets and quiet sandy coves.

The geographical centre of the island, Corte, is home to an impressive citadel, a bustling university and a fascinating old town with cobbled streets weaving their way through.

For explorers, Central Corsica offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits, its mountainous interior welcoming everyone from walkers to mountain bikers alike.

The breathtaking scenery, however, is not just for the super fit, as serene lakes, dramatic waterfalls and tumbling streams meandering through pine-clad gorges make idyllic spots for family picnics and fun days out. VALINCO & THE WEST COAST Valinco Gulf One of the most beautiful gulfs on the west coast, offering idyllic sandy beaches, picturesque coves, quaint seaside resorts and breathtakingly unspoilt mountain scenery, the Valinco Gulf is perfect for both relaxation and adventure. Inhabited for millennia, the various settlers have left their mark on the landscape, from the standing stones of Filitosa to the Genoese towers on each headland, making this an area rich in historical interest.

The bustling town of Propriano is also worth a visit for those in search of buzzing shops and cafés, along with a marina boasting stunning views across the Gulf; the ideal spot for a lazy lunch in the sunshine. Ajaccio Gulf Home to Corsica’s bustling capital, Ajaccio, it’s a city full to the brim with old streets, squares, cafés and history, you can enjoy dining on fresh seafood along the harbour, learning about the life of Napoléon and admiring the rugged coastal scenery during a boat trip. For self-confessed beach lovers, head just outside town to the likes of Porticcio, Portigliolo or Cupabia beaches for a relaxing day or a water sport or two.

Porto Gulf The coast of the Gulf of Porto is one of Corsica’s most famous landscapes and a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site. With stunning cliffs plunging into the deep blue waters and the picturesque villages of Porto and Piana backed by high mountain peaks, this scenery will certainly take your breath away, beckoning you to explore further. This area is best viewed from the sea or explored on foot, and there are several spectacular, marked trails for keen walkers. You can find out more about walking in Corsica on pages 104-105.

L’EXTRÊME SUD Porto Vecchio A place where powder-white beaches, crystalline waters and backdrops of scented pine forests are commonplace, many of the beaches that surround Porto Vecchio could be mistaken for far-flung exotic islands. The town itself is split between a buzzing marina and a network of cobbled, hilltop streets and squares, where a whole host of friendly cafés, sophisticated restaurants and chic boutiques await. There’s also plenty to do for the more active, with walking, horse riding and water sports on offer. Bonifacio Perched precariously on a limestone cliff high above the sea, the hustle and bustle of Bonifacio’s harbourfront and mighty citadel are enough to enchant and impress any holidaymaker.

In the citadel, narrow cobbled streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants offer something new at every turn, and at its feet, the luxury yacht-filled marina offers yet more shops and restaurants to thoroughly spoil visitors. All manner of boat trips depart from Bonifacio, including a ferry to Sardinia, perfect for those in search of a touch more adventure for just a day or even a few nights.

Clinging to mountains above the sea, they provide a window into traditional Corsican life whilst affording some spectacular viewpoints. Wander the narrow, cobbled streets, winding around pretty churches and small local cafés.  Best explored from holidays in Calvi and la Balagne region.

O U R T O P 1 0 P L A C E S I N C O R S I C A With natural beauty, fascinating traditions, stunning beaches and authentic villages, Corsica is an intriguing and rewarding island to explore for all holidaymakers.

Over the years, we’ve fallen more and more in love with the Island of Beauty, so we’re delighted to share our top 10 places with you. THE BEACHES With close to 200 beaches, Corsica is immediately a beach lover’s paradise. From intimate hidden coves, shaded and gently shelving beaches to some truly magnificent bays, whether you’re looking to travel with a partner, children or want to get stuck into a water sport or two, there’s something perfect for you. Some of the island’s most renowned beaches include the sweeping bays of Calvi and L’Ile Rousse in the north, and Palombaggia, Pinarello and Cupabia beaches in the south.

 Holiday in L’Extrême Sud, la Balagne or the west coast for access to the best beaches. THE DÉSERT DES AGRIATES Situated between la Balagne and St Florent, the Désert des Agriates is an area of wild natural beauty. Highlights include the deserted beaches of Saleccia and Loto, boasting pearl-white sand and crystal-clear water. Another beach worth visiting is Ostriconi, a back-to-nature beach at the mouth of the river Ostriconi.  Book your accommodation in either la Balagne or St Florent for the best access to this area.

LES CALANCHES DE PIANA AND SCANDOLA The coast of the Gulf of Porto is one of Corsica’s most famous landscapes, and rightly so.

With dramatic sculpted red rock and sweeping bays, it has to be seen to be believed. The pinnacles and ravines of the red granite calanches soar out of beautiful blue seas framed by the jagged peaks of Paglia Orba. Further north, you’ll find Scandola, one of the largest natural sites in Europe, which displays stacked slabs, towering pinnacles and gnarled, claw-like outcrops of rock, which were formed by volcanic eruptions from millions of years ago. The colours are remarkable, showcasing everything from charcoal grey to incandescent reds and rusty purples.

 Look for accommodation in the north- west of the island for the easiest access to this area. CAP CORSE Found north of Bastia and St Florent and often referred to as an island within an island, Corsica’s Cap Corse is a wild and rugged peninsula, its history setting it apart from the rest of the island. Providing access to some exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt stretches of coast, along with villages perched on cliffs, secluded rocky inlets and tiny fishing ports, enjoy coastal walks or take a day to drive around the cape and discover landscapes of astounding beauty at your own pace.  Best explored from accommodation located in St Florent and the North East.

Call the Corsican experts on 01489 866 931 | 15 14 | For more information or to book online visit corsica.co.uk RESTONICA AND TAVIGNANO GORGES The central region of Corsica offers some beautiful rugged landscapes, and close to the town of Corte (around 85km inland from Calvi), you’ll find two of the most spectacular glacier- moulded gorges in the Med, the Restonica and the Tavignano. Echoing with tumbling rivers, rock pools and forests of enormously tall Corsican pines, they each provide the perfect spots for outdoor activities including wild swimming, walking, canyoning or rafting. If you’re keen to explore Corsica’s interior on foot, see our walking holidays on pages 104-105.

 Central Corsica is easily reached by car from la Balagne or St Florent within an hour and a half, or alternatively explore by foot. THE FORTRESS TOWN OF BONIFACIO Sitting upon a limestone throne at the far south of the island, Bonifacio is a beautiful and majestic old town. Its citadel walls and ancient houses appear to rise seamlessly out of the sheer cliffs, and beneath it lies a natural harbour along with a series of grottoes and coves. Wander the harbourside restaurants and shops, or for the best vantage points of the town, walk along the cliffs to the Pertusato lighthouse or jump on a boat and take in the beauty of the cliffs from the sea.

 Explore accommodation in L’Extrême Sud for easy access to Bonifacio. THE RUGGED BEAUTY OF THE SOUTH-WEST COAST Due to the nature of the landscape, many of Corsica’s beaches are hidden coves accessible only on foot or by boat. Some of our favourite coastal stretches include the Gulf of the Valinco, Campomoro-Tizzano and the Gulf of Roccapina further south.  Look out for properties situated in Olmeto, Propriano and Figari if you want to explore these coastal stretches. THE DRAMATIC BAVELLA MASSIF Drive inland from Porto Vecchio high up into the Bavella Massif, an area of outstanding beauty towering over the Gulf of Porto Vecchio.

Formed of granite needles and dense forests, the views are genuinely jaw-dropping, so perhaps unsurprisingly, the opportunities for walking and outdoor pursuits are aplenty. We recommend exploring the crystalline rock pools of Purcaraccia and the waterfalls of Piscia di Gallo.  Stay in the south east of the island in Lecci or Porto Vecchio to be within an hour’s driving distance.

LAVEZZI ISLANDS Found between Corsica and Sardinia and easy to reach by boat, the archipelago of Lavezzi is made up of 10 small islands, boasting several secluded beaches, coves and naturally formed pools. Keen divers will be in their element here, but they’re also the perfect destination for a day of blissful relaxation.  Hop on a boat from Bonifacio to discover these islands. © Jon Ingall | Shutterstock

Hand-picked villas, apartments, houses and résidences from all over the island feature within this collection – with plenty of choice to suit all tastes and requirements. Most of our self-catering properties are privately owned, and consequently the style, fittings and furnishings vary from one property to another. The price should not be used as a guideline to comfort and standard, as it can also be very much dependent on the location of the property. We describe as accurately as possible the general style and layout of each accommodation, and to give you an idea of the different types of self-catering options we offer, in this brochure we have grouped our properties into a variety of categories: NEW FOR 2019 Our Premium Collection – pages 22 – 33 We’ve selected a small number of properties that have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ – something very special that’ll please the most discerning of guests.

We know and love our collections, each having our own personal favourites, so why not let us guide you to the holiday property that we feel will best suit your needs?

If you’re a regular brochure recipient, you might notice that we’ve decided to restructure the way we showcase our accommodation collections throughout this brochure.

Carefully renovated with great attention to detail, the house offers a delightful blend of old and new exposed stonework, open fireplaces, original staircases and stripped wooden floors mixed with comfortable furnishings and the modern conveniences our guests expect in a quality villa. The house is spacious and airy, with modern furniture and antique style decorations giving the house comfort and a contemporary French style whilst still reflecting La Citaj’s authenticity. Delightful enclosed gardens planted with lavender and other Mediterranean shrubs surround the large pool with views over fields towards the cathedral, and there’s a large terrace around the house where you can sit and enjoy an al fresco meal or just relax in the sun with a book.

Although not particularly recommended for families with younger children due to the steep internal staircases, the location is very much appreciated by older families or couples who’ll enjoy taking the walk to the centre of St Florent with its tempting restaurants and elegant marina that buzz with life in the height of summer. Perched on the Fromentica hillside with breathtaking views, L’Ancre Bleue is positioned to optimise the spectacular panorama over the Gulf of St Florent. Pathways and large terraced seating areas wrap around the villa offering unrivalled views in every direction, giving guests ample opportunities for shade or sun throughout the day.

The interior is exquisitely decorated with a harmonious mixture of antique and designer furnishings, giving the house a wonderful contemporary feel throughout. The owner has a great talent for interior design and has collected a number of interesting pieces that adorn the rooms and add to the stylish and quality presentation of the property. Set over two floors, the accommodation consists of two bedrooms on the upper floor and three bedrooms on the lower level, most with a view. Full-length picture windows open from the living room onto the outside dining terrace and pool area that nestles against the maquis-covered hillside, and from where you’ll spend most of your time gazing at the glorious sea views.

Only a five-minute drive from the heart of the village and la Roya Beach, L’Ancre Bleue is the perfect choice for a relaxing, indulgent getaway in St Florent.

One of the key features of this modern, light and airy villa is its high vantage point, affording some of the best vistas found from any property on the island. The view across to the bay is almost a mainstay throughout the entire property, given the living area’s bay windows which peer out to the blue ocean and verdant distant hills. Relaxing here is an effortless task. Inside you’ll enjoy crisp, clean and contemporary features throughout, with a modern kitchen combined with sleek design in furnishings and further décor across the other rooms of the property. The villa sleeps four guests, equipped with two bedrooms that are both en-suite, with shiny and modern facilities and artwork.

Outside of the villa, guests can make the most of a particularly inviting swimming pool, ideally positioned for enjoying those mesmerising views as you soak amid the heat of the day. If you fancy getting out and about during your stay, there are numerous locations and attractions to consider. Olmeto with its traditional eateries is just over 3km away, while many nearby beaches, as well as the bustling quayside of Propriano, are also in easy reach of Villa Bumortu.

Nestled into the hillside with jaw-dropping views of the bay and private pool, Villa Kallisté is a fabulous property. Recently built and stylishly designed to complement its natural surrounds, this villa provides the ideal setting for an unforgettable getaway – whether you’re looking to explore the area or simply switch off and relax. The house itself is blessed with crisp, modern interiors and huge French windows overlooking the coast and the mountains, making the open-plan living area a great vantage point. A mix of soft tones and comfortable furnishing has been used by the owner Jean-Luc who focused on creating a relaxing and intrinsically sociable space for his guests.

Other benefits include a well-kitted-out kitchen, two en- suite bedrooms, air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. The key attraction though is the large south- facing terrace with its private pool, comfy seating areas, barbecue and spectacular views – with maquis-carpeted hills sloping down to the sandy coves and rugged coastline, there’s no disputing the postcard-perfect beauty of the place. If you tire of lazing by the pool, you’re only a short drive away from the nearest beaches and bustling quayside of Propriano. For the more active, there are miles of walking trails in the area, as well as ample water sports opportunities.

Originally a farmhouse in the 1850s, this idyllic stone cottage is older than its neighbour Bergerie Murtetu, but the impressive conversion gives it a uniquely quaint feel.

Draped in vines and built from local stone, Olivella offers a secluded setting surrounded by olive trees and fragrant herbs. The interior is decorated in rich, earthy colours with wooden beams and wrought iron furniture enhancing the elegance of its Corsican style. Each room is beautifully furnished with the owner’s personal touches offering all the modern conveniences expected from a home-away-from-home. The terrace lies in a prominent position next to the house and offers the perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy an al fresco meal whilst taking in the sunset. Above the bergerie, the large free-form pool with a whirlpool bath gives a privileged feel and provides sweeping views of the Valinco Gulf through the scented maquis and lush trees.

For those who can tear themselves from this idyllic setting, the historic village of Olmeto is only a five-minute drive away offering a good choice of restaurants, whilst the harbour town of Propriano is only 15 minutes’ drive away. The sandy coves of the Valinco are also only a short drive. Bergerie Olivella provides high quality accommodation in a truly sought-after location. Named after the myrtle that grows wildly in the area and perched on the mountainside just below the village of Olmeto, Murtetu is a stylishly presented bergerie commanding spectacular views over the Valinco Gulf. Set amongst perfumed maquis and ancient olive trees, the gardens enjoy privacy and seclusion whilst also offering some of the most stunning views across Propriano and the sea beyond.

Air-conditioned throughout and more spacious than its neighbouring property Olivella, Bergerie Murtetu is well equipped with all the modern conveniences you would expect to find in a villa of this quality. The interior is tastefully arranged in a typical Corsican style with rich warming colours and personal touches adorning the rooms, and large patio doors open out onto the garden area. Outside, the southwest facing terrace offers the perfect setting to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a glass of local wine, and set below the house, the private pool area provides an ideal suntrap in a fabulous setting.

The quaint village of Olmeto is only 3km away with its typical Corsican shops, and for beach lovers there are a number of quiet sandy coves only a 15-minute drive away. Perfect for a relaxing holiday, Bergerie Murtetu offers the ideal blend of country living, beautiful beaches and quality accommodation.

Inside the air-conditioned property, you’ll enjoy plenty of space in which to make yourself at home. An authentic feel can be enjoyed throughout the property, met with a rustic style and Mediterranean charm, with hints of bohemian chic – made more striking by the many finds from Violette’s travels which she uses to decorate the property.

Beamed ceilings and tiled floors populate the open-plan kitchen and dining area, forming one of the focal points of the property, while four bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, are all comfortable, with some enjoying terrace access.

For those hoping to get out and about to explore the local area and indulge in its offerings, there are several points of interest within easy reach of Casa Furtuna. Just a short walk away is the Torraccia vineyard, producing some of the finest wine on the island, while two great beaches, Pinarello and San Ciprianu are both a 15-20 minute drive away. Casa di Mezzu is an attractive detached villa situated halfway between Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. Nestled into the maquis-scented hillside and surrounded by ancient olive and cork oak trees, the property sits in a wonderfully authentic setting with views stretching as far as the bay of Figari on the southwestern coast.

Head for the mountains and have a dip in the cooling waters of natural rock pools or take in the marvellous views across l’Extrême Sud from one of Corsica’s finest view points at l’Ospedale. If you want to take things at a slower pace, relax on the hidden coves of Pianottoli or wander the cobbled streets of Porto Vecchio’s old town.

Its name derives from the giant Corsican pines prized in centuries past by the Genoese, who used them to make ships’ masts. Here, the distinctive red-hued timber has been deployed to create a wonderfully stylish log house, whose elevated position ensures exceptional tranquillity and a glorious sense of space. Far-reaching views extend over the valley from Casa Laricciu’s pool, set on a sunny deck to the rear of the property. The adjacent summer kitchen is ideal for evening barbecues and late- night gatherings, when you can swim in the pool under the starriest of skies, while savouring the aromas of citrus and wild myrtle.

The house itself has a wonderfully cosy feel: stripped log walls, a high-pitched ceiling and comfy tan leather suite set the tone of the airy, open- plan lounge. On one side, a long, stone-topped breakfast bar enfolds a well equipped kitchen, while from the other end, a corridor leads to two cosy bedrooms and a stylish bathroom. Upstairs, the mezzanine floor is given over entirely to a romantic master bedroom, fitted with its own bathtub. On lazy summer evenings, the loveliest sitting spot is undoubtedly the rear veranda, whose paved terrace enjoys uninterrupted views westwards across a shaded pebble garden to the valley.

Only a short drive from Figari airport and some of Europe’s most fabulous beaches, Casa Laricciu offers a dreamy, relaxing bolthole in the heart of the Corsican countryside.

Just a 15-minute drive from the town of Porto Vecchio, Villa Tasche Vecchio is a fantastic option for older families looking for a private and relaxing holiday. The focal point of this property is its stunning private swimming pool, which overlooks the surrounding countryside, all the way across to the mountains of the south of the island. The interior exudes a welcoming and homely feel with lots of character and charm throughout, alongside modern conveniences such as air-conditioning and Wi-Fi to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

For those looking to explore the local area, there are some superb beaches close by, namely Santa Giulia, arguably the best bay on the entire island.

Here you can expect soft, powder-white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters; the ideal place to soak up the sunshine. The town of Porto Vecchio is also well-worth a visit, from the winding cobbled streets of the hilltop town, down to the luxury yachts bobbing around in the marina.

While much relaxation, indulgence and entertainment can be had in and around the property, A Pinarella’s location is perfect for exploring the area.

L’Ile Rousse and the coast are just four kilometres away – a fine choice for those hoping to catch a glimpse of Corsican culture at its best, as are the many hilltop villages which punctuate la Balagne’s landscape. The expression ‘pieds dans l’eau’ or ‘feet in the water’ could not be more appropriately used than to describe this superb modern villa, built above the spectacular rocky headlands of the Calvi coast.

Viewed from the spacious decked terrace, the sea seems to merge with the waters of the infinity swimming pool and most guests will be content to relax and take in the sight of passing boats from the comfort of one of the many sunloungers. Picture windows running the length of the spacious living room also make the most of this breathtaking view and some may find it hard to tear themselves away. With contemporary, stylish furnishings and modern décor, Cala di Mare is built into the rock, with accommodation set over two levels. The master bedroom of the villa is a private hideaway in itself, with its own terrace and a sauna in the en-suite bathroom.

Heading into the villa itself, you’ll discover a homely vibe with a stylish edge, with both modern and shabby chic accents.

WHERE TO STAY? Here’s some short break inspiration from our collection to whet your appetite. SHORT BREAKS With a flight time of just over two hours from London, Corsica is a great choice for a short break, providing a memorable escape in one of the island’s historic towns. Why choose Corsica for a short break? With stunning scenery, ancient hilltop villages, charming coastal towns and some of the loveliest beaches in the Mediterranean, it’s easy to fill a few days on this magical island. From May to October, Corsica enjoys long hours of sunshine, and with a cuisine influenced by both France and Italy (yet still uniquely Corsican), gourmet-loving travellers certainly won’t be disappointed.

Why book with Corsican Places?

With flights from London Stansted to Bastia, Figari and Ajaccio at least twice a week, our three or four-night short breaks can be tailor- made to your requirements. You can fly into one airport and return from another at no additional cost, and our packages come inclusive of either car hire or transfers. Where to base your short break? The elegant capital of Corsica, Ajaccio, on the west coast, is the island’s largest city, boasting a picturesque harbour, a fascinating old town and some lovely beaches. It’s also the birthplace of the island’s most famous son, Napoléon. In the south, the historic citadel towns of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio beckon, while Bastia, in the north, is the island’s second largest city and another great option as a base from which to explore the Cap Corse peninsula.

If hiring a car, it’s also worth considering flying into Calvi and out of Bastia (or reverse), opening up la Balagne region. With its pretty seaside towns and villages, it’s another fabulous short break destination.

You need to be used to walking all day, be confident at altitude and take regular exercise. The main walking season in Corsica is in May, June and September. For more information please visit our website corsica.co.uk/walking or contact us with your enquiry.

Call the Corsican experts on 01489 866 931 | 107 106 | For more information or to book online visit corsica.co.uk CAR HIRE With little public transport available, hiring a car is the best way to get out and about, giving you the freedom to explore the island of Corsica at your leisure. The majority of our package holidays include car hire and we’ve assigned different car grades and numbers of vehicles to accommodate all guests and their luggage. If your package holiday includes airport transfers, or if you’ve booked accommodation only and you wish to hire a car, prices are shown below.

Call the Corsican experts on 01489 866 931 | 109 108 | For more information or to book online visit corsica.co.uk THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO… ACCESS TO ACCOMMODATION Access to self-catering properties is generally from 4pm on the day of arrival, and on the day of departure the accommodation must be vacated by 10am. The owners and cleaners will need access without guests present, to ensure it is properly cleaned and ready for your holiday. ADVANCE PASSENGER INFORMATION (API) Most airlines now legally require us to collect Advance Passenger Information (API) for all passengers (including infants) flying to and from the UK.

Before departure, depending on your flight booked, we may require full passport details. These can be added via our website or by calling us – please note we cannot issue your travel documents without this information. AIR-CONDITIONING AND HEATING If air-conditioning or heating is available at a property, it’s usually included in our holiday price and listed within the property description. However, at a few properties air-conditioning may only be booked and paid for locally, if this is the case we’ll advise you at the time of booking. As part of our Sustainable Tourism code we ask that air-conditioning should be used sensibly: windows and doors should be kept closed; the units should be turned off when guests leave the properties; and shutters and windows should be closed during the hottest part of the day to increase efficiency.

BARBECUES If a property has a barbecue, it’ll be mentioned in the property description, and in Premium villas we also provide charcoal and lighters. As the heat of the summer months can provoke fires, please use barbecues sensibly and note that in some areas, barbecues are actually prohibited at certain times due to heightened fire risks. BUILDING WORKS Whilst tightly controlled, resorts can experience some building work from time to time and we’ll advise you prior to departure of any that we feel will impact on your holiday, as soon as we become aware. However, we’re not always informed in advance of work carried out by third parties and have no control over their plans.

We’ll endeavour to find alternative accommodation for you, although in some cases, particularly in high season, this may not be possible.

CLEANING Our self-catering properties are cleaned for your arrival and bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided at the beginning of your stay. Premium villas are also cleaned midweek. We provide each of our properties with general cleaning products and we ask guests to do a minimal clean to include cleaning of surfaces, cleaning barbecue, clearing perishable food away and disposing of all rubbish, leaving all crockery washed up and put away before they vacate their property. Failure to do so may incur a charge for the additional cleaning required, which can be expensive.

CLIMATE Corsica has one of the highest sunshine records in France with an average of 2,793 hours a year.

The island, as with the rest of the Mediterranean, is influenced by the winds with the temperature moderated by the mountains. In the early season the days are longer and the clear air means the sun can be very hot, although the sea won’t warm up until early June. Average summer temperatures normally reach a very pleasant 25°C rising to 35°C in July / August with sea temperatures reaching their peak by mid-August. At the end of the season the days will be shorter, and the sea remains warm enough to swim comfortably until mid-October.

COTS AND HIGHCHAIRS Highchairs and travel cots are provided free of charge in our self-catering properties if requested at the time of booking. Cots aren’t supplied with linen so please remember to take your own. Cots and highchairs can also be requested for hotel bookings, please note a small supplement may apply. DÉCOR As properties are generally Corsican or French owned, the décor may reflect the local lifestyle and the owner’s taste. A dining table and chairs can be given more priority than comfortable indoor chairs, as this is more in keeping with a Mediterranean outdoor lifestyle. Floors are generally not carpeted and curtains are often decorative with shutters used to block out the light.

Simpler properties can have basic kitchen facilities so should you have any special requirements please let us know.

DOCUMENTATION, PASSPORTS AND VISAS Tickets and travel documentation are sent out 14 days prior to departure. For travel to Corsica you will need a valid passport for all members of your family. If you are NOT a citizen of the UK, Ireland, another EU country, Switzerland, Canada or the USA, you may also need a visa (please contact the French Embassy for details). GETTING ABOUT Hiring a car is the best way to get out and about, giving you the freedom to explore the island at your leisure. Many coastal and mountain roads are narrow and winding, with very little room for manoeuvre and as a rule of thumb, 50km will take at least an hour.

Outside July and August, the roads are less busy. As with the rest of the Mediterranean, other road users may seem to the UK driver to drive unpredictably. Public transport is limited on the island with the exception of the train from Bastia via Corte to Ajaccio, with a branch line from Ponte Leccia to L’Ile Rousse and Calvi.

Traditionally it’s a ‘boneshaker’ of a ride, the reason why the locals call it ‘U Trinighellu’ – the trembler. It’s undoubtedly one of the highlights of the island, a ‘must do’ with stunning panoramas that you just won’t see from the car, as well as a useful means of getting about. Please note however, this service can occasionally be a little unreliable and departures times aren’t always guaranteed. The mainline from Bastia to Ajaccio cuts through the heart of the mountains over viaducts and bridges through no less than 38 tunnels placing it among the world’s top scenic railways.

FLIGHT TIMES AND DELAYS Occasionally, despite the best efforts of all concerned, flights are delayed for reasons beyond our control.

In the event of a lengthy delay we always do our best to provide refreshments when appropriate. Airlines and flight times are sometimes subject to changes beyond our control, in which instance we’ll of course contact you as soon as we are advised. FOREIGN & COMMONWEALTH OFFICE ADVICE The Foreign & Commonwealth Office produces up-to-date travel information to help British travellers make informed decisions about travelling abroad. For more information please see www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. HEALTH AND SAFETY The welfare of our customers is our prime consideration and we’re committed to raising the standards of health and safety in our properties and to continue to identify areas where safety can be improved.

General safety regulations do vary from country to country and are often less stringent than those that we have come to expect in the UK. Each property is unique and may have staircases, steps or drops and it’s therefore important to be safety conscious. If you have any particular needs or concerns please let us know at the time of booking.

HOLIDAY QUESTIONNAIRE To assist us in ensuring standards are maintained and to help us improve our service, we’d be most grateful if you’d take the time to complete our questionnaire online. You’ll also have the opportunity to leave your feedback on FEEFO (an independent review body), and which may be featured on our website. HOTELS Hotels in Corsica are graded under the French star rating system. Breakfasts are often served (not buffet style) and are mostly continental with croissants, bread, jam and coffee. Half board menus are often set with less choice than a restaurant and tea and coffee-making facilities are not generally available in the rooms.

HOTEL ROOM CHECK-IN The standard international practice is to let hotel rooms from midday to midday, however times do vary. Check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm, check-out times between 11am and 12 noon on the day of departure. INVENTORY Our self-catering properties include a minimum inventory to include such essentials as a kettle, iron and toaster. All larger electrical equipment e.g. television, washing machine etc are noted in the individual property descriptions. INTERNET ACCESS Internet access has become an increasingly important feature for our guests and as a result, most properties are now equipped with Wi-Fi – this facility is indicated in the individual property descriptions.

Please note internet coverage and speed of connection may differ from the one you have at home, and may at times be limited or unavailable as a result of issues with the local network, which is out of the control of the owners and ourselves. There’s also a large number of cafés and restaurants across the island offering internet access.

LANGUAGE Although the official language in Corsica is French, Corsican has always been recognised as an official regional language and is frequently used by the locals. You’ll also spot that the road signs are in Corsican as well as in French. LINEN In self-catering properties, bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided on a weekly basis, and in most properties guests can expect beds to be made up on arrival. Beach towels are also provided in our Premium villas. For flight-inclusive bookings, beds will be made corresponding to the number of guests on the reservation – please advise us before departure of any other requirements.

For multiple week stays, clean linen will be delivered each weekend but the beds won’t be made up, except in our Premium villas. Cot linen is not provided. LOCAL LIFE When our guests are on holiday the local population will be going about their daily business: rural or village properties may have farming activities, hunting or festivals going on nearby, over which we have no control. In villages and more rural areas there may be wild dogs and cats that wander around, guests are encouraged not to feed them as this will attract them to return to the property.

Call the Corsican experts on 01489 866 931 | 111 110 | For more information or to book online visit corsica.co.uk MONEY As part of France, Corsica’s currency is the euro, which has significantly fluctuated against sterling over the last few years. Credit/debit card payments are widely accepted but you should be aware that small shops outside the main towns might prefer cash. Few banks in Corsica accept Travellers’ Cheques and even fewer accept sterling. A holiday to Corsica may cost more than to some other islands in the Mediterranean, however with higher prices come fewer tourists and less development, which means it has retained its charm and unspoilt nature.

Once on holiday you’ll find a reasonable three course menu in most towns for around €25 (approx £22). Supermarkets offer a wide range of goods although you may find those not produced locally are more expensive than in the UK. OCCUPANCY All guests must be named on the booking; please advise us beforehand if you’re planning to have additional friends or family joining you – a supplement for extra linen and additional cleaning may be required.

Any occupant whose name does not appear on the invoice will be charged locally. Maximum occupancy cannot be exceeded as the properties are only insured for a certain number of guests. PRICES AND SURCHARGES Our prices are calculated using the exchange rate of £1 = €1.12 and are also based on the cost of fuel as of 15th August 2018. If the value of the euro or the cost of fuel rise, then unfortunately we may need to introduce a surcharge to cover the increased costs to us. In the event of any other security costs or taxes being levied, there may also be an increase in prices printed in this brochure, please see section 12 of our Terms and Conditions for more details.

REQUESTS If you have any requests for your holiday accommodation or flights, please ensure they are mentioned at the time of booking; we’ll do our utmost but a request cannot be guaranteed. If additional items or services are requested that are not advertised, please be aware that we will not have inspected these facilities. RESORT FACILITIES We try to portray our holidays to represent the majority of the season – during early and late season some resort facilities may be closed and in high season even the quietest towns and beaches may become busy.

ROOMS Rooms in our individual properties differ and guests should note that no rooms are the same in terms of décor, style, size and position. Master bedrooms are considered superior to other bedrooms, so when choosing a property for a group of friends it’s best to agree who will have the master suite before arrival. SECURITY DEPOSIT Some property owners require a security deposit to be paid in euros on arrival to cover any losses, damages, breakages or extra cleaning which may occur. If the property you’ve chosen requires a local deposit you’ll be advised of the amount at the time of booking.

For other self- catering properties you may be required to pay a security deposit in the UK, again we will advise at the booking stage. We ask guests to care for their holiday accommodation as if it were their own home and we require all guests to accept our travel insurance (which covers for some material damages) or make similar arrangements. SMOKING We have a no smoking policy in all our accommodation and it’s also forbidden to smoke in hired vehicles. Just as in the UK, a smoking ban in all public areas is in place across France. SUSTAINABLE TOURISM Corsicans are proud and passionate people who are keen to protect the environment and traditions of their island.

We at Corsican Places share the same view and strive to protect their enchanting culture, beautiful landscapes and varied wildlife.

We also have a carbon offset scheme which you can opt into. Please go to corsica.co.uk/carbon- offset-scheme for more information on the projects we support. SWIMMING POOLS Swimming pool details such as size, shape and depth (where known) are given in the facilities section on the property pages on our website, please refer to this or call our team if you require further information and we will check with the owner. All pools have a security system in place: either an alarm, fence or cover as required by French law, but children should be supervised at all times. Pools are generally unheated in Corsica and are maintained and cleaned during your stay, although during high winds debris can appear in an otherwise clean pool.

Weather permitting, pools are open from the start of May to the beginning of October.

Heated pools are only available when listed in the relevant property description. The heating facility will only be available depending on the weather conditions and will not operate above 28 degrees to allow chemicals to work effectively. TELEPHONES Mobile phone coverage is very good in Corsica, with the exception of some more remote or mountainous areas. If you intend to use your mobile phone abroad please ensure that it’s registered for international use. TELEVISION Corsican television signal broadcasting was recently converted to digital and as a result the quality of reception has been significantly improved.

However, unless the property is equipped with a satellite decoder box and is subscribed to a superior service, there’ll be no English language channels.

Mrs Humphries - Guest Travel insurance is a vital aspect to booking a holiday, giving you protection against unforeseen circumstances that could otherwise spoil your holiday. We have arranged a scheme with specialists Travel & General Insurance Services Limited, with an option to purchase a claim excess waiver. They are fully authorised and regulated by the FCA (firm reference number 304788), full details of which can be found on the FCA website: www.fca.org.uk.

Please call Travel & General on 020 3794 2954 for a quote or visit the holiday insurance section of our website.

VILLA MAINTENANCE Staff at some properties live on-site and tend to the grounds and pool. We ask our guests to allow them reasonable access to the property and grounds so these can be kept in good order. WILDLIFE Corsica is a very natural and undeveloped island, and in country houses animals, birds and insects may be present around the house and occasionally living in inaccessible areas such as eaves and roof spaces. Mice and other field animals may also find their way into houses. Mosquitoes, ants and other insects are quite common in the warmer climates and we strongly advise guests not to leave any food uncovered, to deter stray rodents and animals.

For more information on how your personal data is collected and stored, please refer to our ‘Privacy Notice’ shown on our website corsica.co.uk We sell the following arrangements: Package Holiday A “package holiday” is a combination of at least two of the following services (a) transport, (b) accommodation or (c) other tourist services (not ancillary to any transport or accommodation and forming a significant part of the arrangements) where booked through us at an inclusive price.

Accommodation or Flight Only If you book accommodation only through us, we will accept responsibility for your booking in accordance with the terms set out in the relevant sections below. As this is a single component, the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 do not apply.

Excursions Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book with us, or pay for whilst you are on holiday, are not part of your package holiday provided by us. We act as a booking agent only for excursions that you book with us either in the UK or in resort. Your contract is with the provider of the excursions and not ourselves, and therefore we have no liability for the proper performance of that contract. FINANCIAL SECURITY: The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 require us to provide security for the monies that you pay for the package holidays booked and for your repatriation in the event of our insolvency.

For packages that include flights, we hold an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence issued by the Civil Aviation Authority, 45-59 Kingsway London WC2B 6TE (ATOL no. 1866).

When you buy an ATOL protected air holiday package, or flight only arrangements, you will receive a confirmation invoice from us (or via your travel agent through which you booked) confirming your arrangements and your protection under our Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number [1866]. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. If we are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme.

You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme. For further information visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk. The price of our air holiday packages includes the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA.

This charge is included in our advertised prices.

The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited (ABTOT) provides financial protection under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 for Serenity Holidays Ltd, and in the event of their insolvency, protection is provided for the following: 1. non-flight packages and 2.  flight inclusive packages that commence outside of the EU, which are sold to customers outside of the EU; and 3. accommodation only bookings; ABTOT cover provides for a refund in the event you have not yet travelled or repatriation if you are abroad. You can contact ABTOT at: 117 Houndsditch, London, EC3A 7BT.

Please note that bookings made outside the EU are only protected by ABTOT when purchased directly with Serenity Holidays Ltd. In the unlikely event that you require assistance whilst abroad due to our financial failure, please call the 24/7 helpline on 01702 811397 and advise you are a customer of an ABTOT protected travel company. You can access The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 here: legislation.gov.uk/ Flight Only arrangements are protected by our ATOL (number 1866) as described above.

1. YOUR HOLIDAY BOOKING When making a booking you must be aged over 18 years and have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party our terms and conditions. All correspondence and documents are sent to the party leader who is responsible to us for all payments in respect of the booking. The contract is made on the terms of the information in our brochure / on our website, the details set out in the confirmation invoice. We agree that the courts of England and Wales have jurisdiction and English Law applies (unless you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in which case you can bring proceedings in your local court under Scottish or Northern Irish law, as applicable).

Our confirmation invoice is our acceptance of the booking (as detailed therein), and the contract is made on its issue. We ask you to check the details and any anomaly should be reported to us or your travel agent immediately otherwise the details shown on the confirmation will be presumed to be correct. Verbal quotations should not be considered binding until the first invoice confirmation is received. All holidays and offers published are subject to availability at the time of booking.

2. PAYMENT If you wish to confirm a booking you must pay the deposit of 20% of the cost of your holiday. Your balance will be detailed on your invoice and must be paid in full no later than 8 weeks before your departure, or your booking may be deemed cancelled and your deposits retained. In the event, we need to book and pay for your flight at the time of booking, you will be quoted the cost of this before confirming your holiday and asked to pay for this sector in full, along with your deposit. It is at this time you will be advised whether the flight cost is non-refundable. If payment for your holiday is made by a commercial credit card a handling fee, currently 2%, will be levied.

3. IF YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR BOOKING You will need to let us know as soon as possible either by telephone or in writing (or must ensure your travel agent does so on your behalf). Since we incur costs from the time we confirm your booking, the cancellation charges set out below will apply, calculated from the date on which we receive your notice of cancellation. You will then receive a cancellation invoice detailing any charges.

The charges above apply to your total holiday price excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges or charges for goods sold and dispatched. Please note that charges may be higher than those shown where your travel arrangements have been confirmed to you as “non-refundable”. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges. You can cancel your booking without paying cancellation charges if the performance of your package, or the carriage of passengers to your destination, is significantly affected by unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances.

In such circumstances, we will arrange for your booking to be terminated and for you to receive a full refund. We will observe advice provided by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office. If any members of your party cancel, but the others still wish to travel, it may be necessary to re-calculate the cost per person based on the new party size as the accommodation may now be under-occupied. This may result in an increased amount per person payable to secure the original booking. You can transfer your booking to another person, who satisfies all the conditions that apply to this booking, by giving us notice in writing at least 7 days before departure.

Both you and the new traveller are responsible for paying all costs we incur in making the transfer.

4. LOCAL INFORMATION We have taken all care to ensure the information we give regarding local festivals and events is accurate. We ask that should this be important to you, you thoroughly research your chosen area before booking. 5. CHARGES FOR NON-INCLUSIVE HOTEL ITEMS AND DAMAGES You enter into a separate contract with the hotel or residence for these items (e.g. parking, bar bills etc.), and agree to pay locally for any charges for items or services used by your party and not included in your holiday price. The accommodation we arrange for you can only be used by those people named on your Invoice.

You are not allowed to share the accommodation with anyone else or let others stay there.

6. IF YOU REQUEST A CHANGE TO YOUR BOOKING If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes, but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be made from the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked to pay an administration charge which will be advised at the time, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made, and you should contact us as soon as possible.

Note: Certain travel arrangements may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. 7. IF YOU BOOK THROUGH A TRAVEL AGENT We will assume that in dealing with us the agent is acting on your behalf in respect of any changes or cancellation to your booking. When you buy a flight-based holiday, all monies you pay to the travel agent are held by him on behalf and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times. This is subject to the agent’s obligation to pay it to us for so long as we do not fail.

If we fail, any money held at that time by the agent, or subsequently accepted from you by him, is and continues to be held on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us. When you buy a holiday not including a flight, all monies you pay to the travel agent are held by him on our behalf at all times. 8. IF WE CHANGE YOUR HOLIDAY Although it is unlikely, we may occasionally have to make a change to your holiday arrangements and we reserve the right to change or cancel your booking. Most changes are minor, and we will always endeavour to advise you or your travel agent of any such changes at the earliest possible date.

Note: Any amendment or cancellation fees you incur in terms of other arrangements you have made with other providers under separate contracts are not claimable from us.

Package Holiday & Flight Only: A change of airline, aircraft type, overseas airport of destination, travel timings by 12 hours or less and accommodation of a similar or higher standard in the same resort or region are classed as minor changes which do not entitle you to cancel or change to another holiday / flight without paying our normal administration charges, and for which no compensation or refund is due. The carrier may occasionally have to change the type of aircraft used on a flight without warning. In such circumstances where you have booked and paid an additional seat supplement and such seat cannot be provided, then you will receive only a refund of the supplement paid.

Occasionally, we have to make a significant change to your travel arrangements or accommodation. A significant change is a change made before departure, which, on the basis of the information given to us by you at the time of booking we can reasonably expect will have a major effect on your holiday. The following changes are examples of major changes: changing travel times by over 12 hours, your UK departure airport (excluding London airports), your holiday region, a change to a lower standard or type of accommodation or reducing the number of days’ holiday. If we have to make a significant change or cancel your holiday we will tell you as soon as possible.

Where possible, we will offer the following options: you can either a) accept the changed arrangements b) purchase another holiday from us at the advertised current selling price or c) cancel your booking upon which we will refund your monies in full and final settlement. Subject to the note below, if you choose to cancel and accept a refund, we will pay compensation as follows: Accommodation Only: If we make a change to your accommodation and you don’t want to accept it, you can take any alternative we are able to offer you (you will pay the increase in cost if the replacement is advertised at a higher price than your original booking or receive a refund of the difference if it is less expensive) or a refund of the money you have paid to us.

This does not apply where the change is not material. Examples of non-material changes include, but are not limited to, temporary withdrawal of facilities or seasonal unavailability of amenities. If we have to cancel your accommodation, again we may be able to offer you an alternative. If you accept it, you would pay the difference if it was advertised at a higher price than your original accommodation or receive a refund of the difference if it was advertised at a lower price. Or we will refund the monies you have paid us for your accommodation. We will not be responsible to pay any compensation following a change or a cancellation by us.

Applicable to Package Holiday, Accommodation, Excursion or Flight only bookings: Note: If a change or cancellation occurs because of circumstances beyond our control, for example war, threat of war, riots, civil disturbances, actual or threatened terrorist activity and its consequences, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disasters, fire, health risks, adverse weather conditions, hurricanes, floods, closure or congestion of airports or ports, epidemic or pandemic illness and all similar situations we will have no liability to you. No compensation payments, expenses or any other sums, including the cost of securing alternative accommodation will be paid by us.

9. ABTA We are a member of ABTA, membership number V5963. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We can also offer you ABTA’s scheme for the resolution of disputes which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. If we can’t resolve your complaint, go to www.abta.com to use ABTA’s simple procedure. Further information on the Code and ABTA’s assistance in resolving disputes can be found on www.abta.com. You can also access the European Commission Online Dispute (ODR) Resolution platform at http://ec.europa. eu/consumers/odr/. This ODR platform is a means of notifying us of your complaint; it will not determine how your complaint should be resolved.

Alternatively, AITO’s Independent Dispute Settlement Service may be called upon by either side to bring the matter to a speedy and amicable solution, but please be aware this scheme is not registered by the ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution).

10. IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT In the unlikely event you have cause for complaint during your holiday, please inform the hotel or site management and our local representative. It is unreasonable for you to take little or no action and wait until you return to complain, and you must take reasonable steps to minimise the consequences of the problem. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract. If a problem cannot be resolved locally please follow this up in writing to our Customer Relations Department at our UK office, with any supporting evidence, within 28 days of your return from holiday.

Please also see clause 9 above on ABTA.

11. OUR RESPONSIBILITY Package Holiday: If the contract, we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed by us or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your travel arrangements. However, we will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.

Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of [3] times the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to: (a)  The contractual terms of the companies that provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are incorporated into this contract; and (b)  Any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage.

We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions.

Upon request from you, we can provide copies of the transport companies’ contractual terms, or the international conventions. We do not accept liability for happenings or actions outside our control, e.g. the temporary invasion of pests, the presence of indigenous animals or insects, government action, industrial disputes, damage or inconvenience resulting from the weather (e.g. drought conditions) or from acts of God, or your party’s negligence resulting in loss or accident. If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an 15.

TRAVEL SERVICES When you travel by air the relevant carrier’s ‘Conditions of Carriage’ will apply to your journey, some of which may limit liability or exclude liability in accordance with the relevant international conventions. Copies of the conditions are available for inspection at any ABTA travel agent or from us. Information given by us about such services is for guidance only and the carriers concerned accept no responsibility for our brochures. It is your responsibility to report promptly at the check-in times given by the carriers and with the appropriate valid travel documents (e.g.

passports), and we cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred by you if you fail to do so. Occasionally there are times beyond our control when a flight is delayed. We will work closely with the airline and our resort office to make sure any delay is as short as possible and that your overseas transfer and accommodation arrangements are changed if necessary. Our aim is to minimise the inconvenience of delays as far as possible.

Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delays to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. Please note that reimbursement in such cases is the responsibility of the airline and will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 8 ‘if we change your holiday’. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Passengers Advice and Complaints team at the CAA (email: passengercomplaints@caa.co.uk website www.caa.co.uk).

16. TRAVEL INSURANCE It is a condition of booking that you must have comprehensive travel insurance and we would recommend that this also makes provision for any damage to your holiday accommodation and it’s contents. If you require a quote, you may wish to contact travel specialists Travel & General on 020 3794 2954 or visit their link on the insurance page of our website. 17. SPECIAL REQUESTS If you have a special request with your holiday arrangements you must discuss this with us at the time of booking. We will always try to meet your requests where possible but cannot guarantee their provision.

Failure on our part to meet such requests cannot be considered a breach of contract and we are unable to accept any bookings that are conditional on a special request being fulfilled.

18. MEDICAL CONDITIONS / REDUCED MOBILITY If you have any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday (including any which affect the booking process), please tell us before you confirm your booking so that we can assist you in considering the suitability of the arrangements and/or making the booking as not all of the properties / hotels we feature will be deemed suitable. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. Failure to do so may limit your rights under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018.

19. SEASONAL FACTORS AND FACILITIES Fewer facilities may be available for you on holiday at your accommodation or in the local area at the beginning or end of the season due to weather conditions or lack of support. This includes, but is not limited to, swimming pool opening, restaurant opening times and beach facilities. This is usually reflected in the lower season pricing and we cannot be held responsible for their lack of provision. In the case of swimming pools: compliance with any water conservation regulations imposed in times of drought, damage or malfunction of the mains water supply.

The above are understood to be a result of force majeure and not to reflect on our failure to deliver an advertised facility. We shall always endeavour, when possible, to advise you of the withdrawal of any facilities if and when we are given reasonable notice. 20. YOUR HEALTH ABROAD EU Visitors to other EU countries are entitled to receive medical treatment under the State Service providing they have a European Health Insurance Card (please be aware that this card may not cover all the costs involved). At the time of publication, there are no special health precautions recommended but for up to date information you should contact the Department of Health.

We strongly recommend you take out personal travel insurance with adequate health cover to ensure you are fully protected should you become ill.

21. PASSPORT/VISA It is the responsibility of all customers to ensure they have a valid passport and to check entry requirements such as passport validity and any required visa. In addition, you must consult your GP for advice regarding recommended medication and anti-malarial drugs before you book. For further information on passport and visa requirements, please contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk 22. HOLIDAY PARTICIPATION Should anyone be refused admission to the flight or to the destination country by the airline or government authority due to the correct documentation not being in order then we are powerless to assist and cannot be held responsible.

Any passengers considered being unacceptably under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be denied boarding to the aircraft or entry into the country. In these circumstances we shall consider the customer as having given notice of cancellation and be under no liability for any costs or charges incurred as a result of our doing so.

event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances. If you have taken our recommended insurance cover, you must make an insurance claim in respect of any legal fees incurred abroad for that purpose, and if you have taken alternative insurance, you must do likewise under any Legal Expenses cover provided by it. You must also provide us with the confirmation from the insurance company of receipt of your notification to them of your claim.

Excursions: Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book, which you pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of your package holiday provided by us and your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour nor for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator. Accommodation Only: We have a duty to select the accommodation providers with reasonable skill and care. We have no liability to you for the actual provision of the accommodation, except in cases where it is proved that we have breached that duty and damage to you has been caused.

Therefore, providing we have selected the provider with reasonable care and skill, we will have no liability to you for anything that happens at the accommodation or any acts or omissions of the provider or others. We also have no liability in the following situations: i.  where the accommodation cannot be provided as booked due to circumstances beyond our control (see the Note in clause 8) ii.  where you incur any loss or damage that could not have been foreseen at the time of your booking, based on the information provided by you. iii. where you incur any loss or damage that relates to any business activity.

iv.  where any loss or damage relates to any services which do not form part of our contract with you.

If we are found liable to you on any basis, we limit the amount we have to pay you to a maximum of three times the cost of your accommodation. This limit does not apply to cases involving death or injury. 12. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY You undertake to exercise reasonable care in respect of your holiday accommodation and its contents and to respect local and on-site regulations and to limit party numbers to those on your confirmation. In the event of substantial damage/abuse to your holiday accommodation, we reserve the right to ask you to leave and find alternative accommodation at your own cost.

Some of our self-catering properties have a security deposit against them which you will be required to pay on arrival to cover against any breakages, damage, losses or extra cleaning. The amount will be notified to you at the time of booking and shown on your invoice.

Should there be no security deposit, or this prove inadequate to fully cover any costs that arise, we reserve the right to invoice you for immediate payment. 13. PRICES AND SURCHARGES The price of your holiday was calculated using the exchange rate of £1 = €1.12. We reserve the right to change your holiday price after you have booked, only in certain circumstances: Changes in the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from changes to the cost of fuel or other power sources, the level of taxes or fees imposed by third parties including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports or exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked.

Package Holidays There will be no charge within 20 days of your departure. We will absorb such increases up to 2% of your basic holiday price (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges). If the surcharge is greater than 8% of your holiday price you have the option of changing to another holiday that we offer (if we are able to offer an alternative you will not have to pay more, but if it is of a lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price) or you have the right to cancel (within 14 days of receiving surcharge notification), in which case we will refund in full all monies paid to us except insurance premiums and any amendment charges.

Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund due will be paid to you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes will have no impact on the price of your holiday due to contractual and other protection in place.

Accommodation and Flight Only We reserve the right to pass on all increases. If we ask you to pay us any increases in taxes, similarly, if any taxes you have paid to us are reduced or abolished, you will be entitled to claim a refund. Such right shall not apply in respect of any surcharge paid in respect of aviation fuel costs. 14. PRICING ERRORS Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of all the information and prices provided to you, regrettably errors do occasionally occur. In the event that an incorrect price has been given in error, any booking made based on this price, will not be valid.

You will be advised of the mistake at the earliest opportunity and you will then have the option either to pay the correct price for the travel arrangements or to cancel and receive a full refund of any monies you may already have paid.
