    A large part of Corsica’s charm is its historic towns and villages where the buildings with their red-tile roofs seem to hang precariously onto the hilltops.

With a Sartène holiday apartment, you can be part of it all.

    Things to do

    Sartène is located in the south-western part of Corsica and dates from medieval times. Built high on top of a hill, it overlooks a beautiful valley. Many of the historic buildings have remained and a stroll through the old part of town is like a journey back in time to the days when Sartène had to guard against attacks by pirates.

    -The Museum of Prehistoric Corsica is in Sartene. Here you can find out more about the people who lived on the island long before the Genoese came: people like the Torre civilisation. You can also learn about the ancient taffoni burial chambers, where the dead were placed in natural openings in the area’s granite rock. The museum is a good place to start if you want to explore the prehistoric sites of the region.

    -The Place de la Liberation is the ideal shady place to rest after a morning of exploring the town. This square is the heart of Sartène life, with a market and lined with many little shops and restaurants. Overlooking the square you’ll find the Church of Sainte Marie and the historic Town Hall.

    -Easter weekend is an excellent time to book a Sartene holiday home. U Catenacciu takes place after sunset on Good Friday and marks the start of the celebrations. In a tradition that dates back some seven centuries, one townsperson is chosen to don a red hooded robe so that his or her identity is concealed. This person, known as the ‘Grand Penitent’, is shackled by the ankle and drags these chains across town while carrying a big, heavy wooden cross and is the focus of the Easter procession, which also includes penitents dressed in black. The procession begins and ends at the Church of Sainte Marie.

    -Sartène’s wines are a particularly good choice. Most of the wines produced in the area are rosés but you’ll also find excellent reds and a small number of whites. Be sure to visit one or, even better, all of the local wineries to see and taste why oenophiles rave about the vintages that hail from Sartène.

    -Propriano is only about 8.5 miles from Sartène and a great destination for a day’s outing to the beach. The beaches lining the Gulf of Valinco are sandy and white, with clear blue waters perfect for snorkelling and diving. Sailing and boat trips are popular activities too. Propriano is a relaxed port and there are many restaurants along the waterfront where you can have a leisurely lunch and watch the boats coming into or sailing out of the harbour.

    The weather in Sartène

    Sartène, like the rest of Corsica, has a Mediterranean climate with sunny summers and rainy, cool winters. Summer days can become very hot, with temperatures often soaring to around 31 °C, so you may want to opt for Sartène holiday accommodation equipped with air conditioning. Winters are cool, with maximum temperatures hovering around 14 °C but night-time temperatures dropping to around 5 °C. While there may be a little rain once in a while in summer, most of the rainfall in the area occurs in winter, especially from October to December.

    Getting to Sartène

    Getting to your holiday apartment in Sartène is very easy but it’s advisable to hire a car once you arrive in Corsica, since the public transport network isn’t very extensive. The nearest international airport to Sartène is Figari Sud-Corse Airport, a little over 27 miles to the south-east. In summer, Figari Sud-Corse Airport receives regular flights from various destinations all over Europe.
