Provence or Corsica?!?

Jump to last reply

My significant other has a conference in Paris for 4 days in late September. We find ourselves with 5 days vacation before hand. He has been to Cannes and a few other places in France. I have spent a good amount of vacation time in Paris. We are looking to get away and experience a new locale while relaxing, and friends have recommended Provence or Corsica.

With only 5 days, I feel like we would be rushing either, so I have been trying to figure out where would be *less* of a rush between the two. We will be flying from London and can fly into pretty much any airport from there (not just Paris) as our tickets haven't been booked yet. We are in our 30s. We both love food and wine. I'm a sucker for good scenery, open air markets, and love a good hike. He is more of a museum walker and sit by the beach and read guy, but can be up for something outdoorsy if it isn't too strenuous. Both of us have horrible, horrible French skills. We aren't trying to spend more than $1k a day for both of us for this trip, including everything.

Any advice for Provence versus Corsica and which areas are must sees? Thanks much!
