SARDINIA and CORSICA

Seeking recommendations for an 8 day trip to Sardinia and 4 days in CORSICA. We are a well travelled couple, appreciate boutique or great hotels, a great B & B or 5 star luxury. Love good food and soaking up the evening ambiance but daytime explore villages and sights or hang out on a great beach. Travel is mid May.

Coming in from Rome do we fly or ferry across, rent a car in Rome to go with us or locally on the islands. Thank you.

According to your preferences, you may choose between a overnight ferry ride from Civitavecchia to Cagliari or Olbia or a flight from FCO to the same places.
Rent the car at your arrival place in Sardinia.

Check with the car rental company, whether you can take the car on board of a ferry from Sardinia to Corsica:
Sta. Teresa - Bunifaziu (Mobylines, several times daily)
resp
Golfo Aranci - Porto Vecchio, Porto Torres - Porto Vecchio or Porto Torres - Ajaccio (Corsicaferries,1-3 times weekly)

For Corsica, I would fly into Calvi or take the ferry from Sardinia to Bonifacio. I would spend all the time on the west coast from Bonifacio to Calvi. However, 4 days even if they do not include your arrival and departure day for the island, are not nearly enough time for that.

My advice is to either spend your entire 12 days on Sardinia or spend them all on Corsica.

The ferries I mentioned (Mobylines and Corsicaferries/Sardiniaferries; private companies) never striked in the last years.
Avoid Meridionale, Corsicalinea, Tirrenia, Saremar and you will be fine.
There are no direct flights from Rome to Corsica. Corsica bound ferries leave continental Italy at Livorno (direct) and Piombino (via Elba).
