Make a holiday villa in Aghione your home away from home

Aghione villas are situated in a rural area close to Corsica's eastern seaboard, in possibly the most gentle of the island's rugged landscapes. Corsica's compact but tall geography, however, means visitors are never far from either the sea or the mountains. As the land approaches the sea here, it flattens into marshland, with huge lagoons and lakes sheltering behind barrier islands edged by beaches stretching miles in both directions. While there's not much in the way of commercial tourist facilities in this area, the boon is unrivalled tranquility, peace and quiet, amid some of the prettiest scenery imaginable. For a more rugged location, HomeAway also has similarly peaceful accommodation available in Monticello in the more mountainous northwest. Accommodation in Aghione isn't inconveniently isolated from all civilisation, however, with the nearby villages of Ghisonaccia and Aleria hosting a number of shops to take care of any self-catering needs. Aleria itself has a number of HomeAway holiday homes nearer the beaches, but further from the mountains.

Villas and apartments in Aghione are typically more self-sufficient than those in coastal Corsican locations, with most having access to a pool and their own barbecue area.

Things to do

Beaches: The beaches below Ghisonaccia, or rather beach singular, though it is an extremely long one, stretch for miles in either direction and are relatively untouched by commercial tourism. The areas directly below Ghisonaccia do have some facilities for watersports and sun bed hire, however.

Food and drink: For peaceful self-catering holidays, rentals in Aghione are hard to beat. Much of the local produce is well worth sampling, especially the pork, local olive oils, and wines. If meals out are sought, however, there are several restaurants in nearby Aleria.

Outdoor pursuits: Probably the most popular pursuit around Aghione is hiking, as the rolling farmland is untaxing but quite lovely to walk through. Of course, the mountains are very close for the more adventurous hiker as well as for climbing, mountain biking and horse-trekking, and the seafront has the facilities for watersports and beach games.

Culture: The commune of Aghione is primarily agricultural, but nearby Aleria was the former Roman capital of the island, and so is literally built atop ruins, many of which still remain buried. The town was revived by the Genoese in the middle ages, who created an impressive citadel which is now the island's premier museum of archaeology.

Weather in Aghione

Corsica averages over nine hours of sunshine a day from May to September, with high temperatures simmering around 28°C. Spring is also a good time to visit Aghione in particular, because in bloom the fields add a whole other dimension to the landscape. Most of the rain falls during the autumn, and winter high temperatures rarely stray into single digits.

Travel to Aghione

Bastia Airport is a relatively straight 45-mile drive up the coast, and has the largest selection of airlines to choose from. Ajaccio Airport is also an option too, 60 miles to the west. These are the direct flight options to the UK. Solenzara is the closest airport for non-direct flights, at 20 miles to the south.

The view was lovely of the beach and the sea, 2 minutes walk away. In October the terrace never got the sun because it was behind the house, which was very disappointing. On Thursday of my second week preparations were made for the Salon de la Peche, which the lady of the house had told me about. They erected an enormous marquee inches from my terrace,which took two days of work, making lots of noise and completely blocked my view because it was big and high. Madame offered me the use of the top terrace which was attached to another house of theirs. It would have been nice to have been able to use it before because it was sunny most of the day. The last two days were not happy ones because of the blocked in feeling and all the noise. I would not go again in October to that studio.

It is up a winding fairly narrow road which posed no problem for us. The house itself is well equipped, very comfortable and quirkily decorated which we loved. The hosts live nearby and were extremely friendly and helpful. We would have no hesitation to stay there again.
