Corsica is one of the 26 regions of France, although strictly speaking Corsica is designated as a "territorial collective"  by law. As a territorial collectivity, it enjoys greater powers than other French régions. Corsica was incorported into France in 1769, but enjoys a seperate culture which predates this date to the time that it was part of Italian protectorate of Genoa.

The island is 90 kilometres (56 mi) from Tuscany in Italy and 170 kilometres (110 mi) from the Cote d'Azur in France. It is separated from Sardinia to the south by a minimum of 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) wide.

The predominant language in Corsica is French, however the Corsican language is spoken widely especially in the mountains.

Monte Mare Nord - Hotel to Hotel Trek

Walking holidays in France - Corsica - Monte Mare Nord - Hotel to Hotel Trek - Click Here For Larger Image To this day, Corsica remains the most unspoilt of the Mediterranean islands. In fact, its hills are covered in cool, green virgin forests, and golden sands adorn its coastline, interspersed with dramatic cliffs. In the centre of the island, some peaks rise to 2,706 metres (8,878ft) and many reach to over 2,000 metres (6,600ft). This mountainous region covers two-thirds of the island and is dotted with remote villages perched on crags above river gorges. French is the official language but bi-lingual signs indicate the wide use of its own language, which has similarities to Italian. Cuisine is also a delicious mélange of French and Italian dishes. In the mountains, wild meats such as boar, rabbit and trout offer tempting variety.
