    Lecci is a small, wide-spread commune north of HomeAway's accommodation in Porto-Vecchio, one of Corsica's major ports. Holiday villas and apartments in Lecci not only place guests near some incredible beaches, but are also convenient for the mountains of Corsica's interior, and the facilities of the bustling resorts nearby. Accommodation in Lecci is spread between several resorts and villages, including Benedettu, Cala Rossa and San Cipriano, where some of HomeAway's finest seaside villas can be found. This area of Corsica is well known for its Roman ruins, abandoned, it is thought, because of the malaria associated with the surrounding marshland. This was reclaimed in the 16th century by the Genoese and eventually drained during WWII to eradicate the disease. Since then, the community has flourished beautifully.

    A healthy number of Lecci holiday rentals have access to a pool, and most come with fully equipped kitchens, internet access, and satellite TV/DVD players. Rentals at Lecci are typically very convenient for the excellent beaches, but very few are wheelchair accessible due to their rural nature.

    Things to do

    Beaches: The beaches along this stretch of coast are particularly fine, with some sandy, and some rocky. Access from Lecci villas, in most cases, can be made on foot. Some of the more secluded beaches are only accessible by hiking in.

    Nightlife: Porto-Vecchio has arguably the best nightlife on Corsica, but this isn't saying much if visitors are budding party animals... There are nightclubs with dancing until the wee hours, but it never gets as rowdy as the party towns on the mainland. Having said that, Via Notte claims to be the largest open-air nightclub in Europe, and has the potential to hold 8,000 people.

    Outdoor pursuits: With this combination of mountains and coast, the choice of activities is virtually limitless. Hiking, mountain biking and horse trekking are widely available for the hills and mountains, while outlets along the beaches and in Porto-Vecchio supply the equipment for watersports excursions.

    Shopping: As far as shopping in Corsica goes, Porto-Vecchio is pretty good for trendy clothes shops, souvenirs and specialty Corsican foods like the honeys, charcuterie, and local cheeses. For the self-caterer, there are several hypermarkets in Porto-Vecchio for food and sundries without the touristy markup.

    Culture: Bronze Age ruins at Araghju are definitely worth a visit from those interested in culture and history, as is the guided tour through the Citadel of Porto-Vecchio. There are several other Bronze Age sites within easy driving distance. For art lovers, the Ranaldi Gallery should be on the list of things to do.

    Weather in Lecci

    Lecci has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers, mild winters, and no real uncomfortable extremes. Most of the sparse precipitation falls during the autumn, and summer temperatures never really top 30°C. During the winter, it is regarded as unusual if the highs drop into the single digits.

    Travel to Lecci

    Direct flight options from the UK are limited to Ajaccio to the west and Bastia in the far north (both about 90 miles away). Solonzara Airport is only 30 miles to the north, but will require a connecting flight to a hub in mainland Europe, similarly with Figari airport, which is about 20 miles away. Regular ferries run to Marseille and several ports in Italy, so driving down is certainly feasible if a couple of days on the road isn't of great concern.
