Corsica Oktober


We are going to Corsica in October. Have anyone got any experience with the weather there at that time of year?

I am trying to find a small hotel or maybe a house in the south half of the island. I am looking for something a bit special for this trip. Preferably with a great view and service a bit over the normal. I don't mind paying a bit extra if I find something special. Any recommendation?

Hi Lars,

Corsica can be very nice and summerly in October. The sea and river temperatures will still be over 20 degrees C. This means that you can swim and on good days lay on the beach if you choose one which is shielded from the wind. It also means that the evenings can be quite warm, so that you can dine in open air.

October is on the other hand also the second most rainy month of the year so you should prepare yourself for some heavy rainfalls - whcih may turn into snow in the high mountains in the last part of October.

If I were you I would go as early in October as possible because many hotels and restaurants close down by the middle of October.

I am an Haute-Corse lover, so others will have to guide to hotels in the South. Be ware though that relatively big part of the hotels will have closed down for the season.

If you look for sel-catered accommodations you will find the widest selection at homeaway.co.uk

Enjoy Corsica !

Kind regards

Hi Lars,

October is a great time to visit the island - weather can be very nice but also much more uncertain (reality is that it could very well rain with 15C for the full week - but also have beautiful weather with decent temperatures (average for the month is about 22C and sea temperature is about 20C).

If you want service you should really go for a hotel...and if you are looking for 'above normal' with great views then you will have many options in the South including Grand Hotel Cala Rossa, Casadelmar Laplage, etc.!

Enjoy Corsica!!

Hotel Abbartello outside of Olmeto sits right on the coast: www.hotelabbartello.com. You would need a car.
