    Make a villa in Monticello your home away from home

    Holiday villas and apartments in Monticello are sited among the hills which sit behind the scenic coastal town of L'Ile-Rousse in the north of Corsica. Monticello villas combine the slower pace of life in a mountain village with the bustle of a busy seaside resort and fantastic beaches only three miles away. That said, Monticello accommodation is also located in the village thought to be the birthplace of Columbus's mother, so the historical significance couldn't be more pleasantly counterintuitive. Views up the western coast of Cap Corse provide a dramatic backdrop for al fresco dining, and the mountain roads above meander between fortress villages clinging spectacularly to the cliffs and slopes. Proximity to the busy resort of Calvi, which also houses a selection of HomeAway holiday homes, means shopping for food or planning a good night out is never an issue.

    Self Caterings in Monticello are typically equipped with full kitchens and barbecue areas, and quite a few have their own pools. There are some with tennis courts and a golf course in the village.

    Things to do

    Beaches: The beaches at L'Ile Rousse and Calvi are counted among the finest on the Mediterranean, and there is a miniature train linking the two, and smaller beaches in between. Calvi is the larger resort, but the beach there is by far the largest, which means a lot more space for everybody.

    Food and drink: There are a handful of restaurants in Monticello, ranging from a pizza joint to the gourmet restaurant at the Hotel A Pasturella, which is pricey, but worth a splurge. There's no real nightlife to speak of, but L'Ile Rousse and Calvi both have a lively bar scene, and Calvi especially provides for the self-caterer in admirable style.

    Outdoor pursuits: Watersports from the beach and marinas are obviously a big attraction, but Corsica introduces mountains into the mix, which involve a whole different set of activities to choose from. Horse trekking is very popular, as are mountain biking and hiking through the peerless scenery.

    Shopping: The Greek-style market in L'Ile Rousse is only three miles away, and is surrounded by small boutique shops. A broader range can be found in more distant Calvi, which is rapidly establishing itself as a gourmet shopping destination, specialising in the local Corsican produce.

    Travel to Monticello

    Bastia Airport is the nearest flight option direct from the UK, at around 25 miles away. HomeAway also has luxury holiday accommodation available here, if a more urban holiday base is desired. Calvi also has an airport that is much closer, but only caters to seasonal charters. Both towns are also ferry ports, with regular services from the south of France, which opens up Nice and Marseille as direct flight options from the UK.
