Whether in the Vosges Mountains or at the foot of Mont Blanc: real French country life, rustic accommodation and many sporting opportunities are offered above all in the mountain hotels. France is of course also known for its culinary specialities, such as the famous mountain cheeses. For this reason, a holiday in a mountain hotel in France is a real highlight - for ski fans and beach holidaymakers as well as for friends of fine French cuisine.

Mountain hotels in Corsica: beach holidays & skiing in winter
The luxury island of Corsica is known to most for its absolute dream beaches. In the bay of Calvi, on the beach of Saleccia and in Santa Giulia, holidaymakers can relax perfectly and enjoy the Mediterranean sun of southern France. But what many people don't know is that Corsica also has fascinating mountain landscapes and leads past the most beautiful viewpoints on the island on exciting hiking routes. Whether the Cap Corse, Castaniccia or the Alta Rocca - steep mountain landscapes alternate with chestnut forests and especially the tours along the coast promise impressive panoramas in a class of their own. Beautiful mountain hotels can be found in Serra-di-Ferro in the southwest of the island. In addition to beaches and mountain hikes, Corsica also has many sights: From the beautiful harbour towns of Bonifacio and Ajaccio to Monte Cinto, Capo Pertusato and the Fango Valley. In winter, Corsica shines in snow-white mountain landscapes and invites you to winter sports in beautiful ski resorts such as Ghisoni Capanelle, Haut Asco and Val d`Ese.
Getting to France
There are various ways to travel to France. The mountain hotels are usually idyllically located between mountain and natural landscapes and are therefore best reached by car or rental car. Coming from Baden-Württemberg, the A36 leads to the east of France, where there are many mountains and mountain hotels. Or you can fly to a larger city nearby, such as Geneva or Lyon. In the south of France, holidaymakers can easily travel to Marseille. From there, the mountain hotels are not far away. Corsica has three airports - Bastia, Ajaccio and Figari. Depending on the season, airlines offer direct flights to France from larger German cities. Another option would be to travel by train or long-distance bus. The advantage: stops are also made at smaller towns and communities of mountain hotels.
