The charming village of Algajola is located on the northern coast of the French island of Corsica. This is quite a remote part of France and by spending your holidays in Algajola, you will be allowing yourself a time where you can really recharge your batteries and enjoy such a beautiful part of the world. The self catering accommodation in Algajola will definitely have all of the amenities you need for your stay and many properties in the area come equipped with the use of your own private pool and may even boast spectacular views out to sea.
Many of the most popular activities to participate in during your holidays in Algajola will be centred around the fantastic beaches that can be found in this part of northern Corsica. This includes activities such as family-safe swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, water skiing, jet skiing, sailing and fishing. The little ones will love to explore the rock pools to find examples of the local marine life. If you are keen to discover the countryside and wildlife of Corsica, there are some great walks to be had in the local area: both inland and around the coastline. Also, you might want to consider a trip down to the Parc Naturel Regional de Corse which is one of the most undeveloped and beautiful parts of the whole island.
If you can bear to tear yourself away from your comfortable self catering villa in Algajola, there are some glorious places to visit whilst on Corsica. Perhaps the most impressive should be the actual capital of Corsica itself, Ajaccio. This city and island is known to have connections with none other than Napoleon Bonaparte himself and there is the perfect chance to find out more about this history at the National Museum of the Bonaparte Residence. Other popular attractions to explore in the area include the Musee Fesch and for a relaxing afternoon stroll, whilst in the city, head to Place de Gaulle.
We all wonder what sort of weather can be expected on our holidays and so it should prove to be great news that Corsica enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. Holidays in Algajola are popular at any time of the year and this is because temperatures remain mild throughout the year. Even in the depths of winter, you can still expect to see average temperatures hit the low- to mid-teens degrees Celsius. In the summer, this is more likely to be around the mid- to high-twenties degrees.
Ajaccio-Napoleon Bonaparte Airport (AJA) will be the best point of entry to Corsica for your holidays in Algajola. This is a couple of hours’ driving time from the north of the island and therefore a hire car is highly recommended. easyJet operates a direct flight to Ajaccio and this departs from London Gatwick (LGW).
