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.

Wonderful villa

5 of 5
The villa is in a wonderfully quiet location yet perfectly situated for access to many mountain hikes. We came to climb the many rugged peaks and Corsica is a great place to do so with well marked, spectacular trails. The villa is very well equipped with quality appliances. The two brothers who own the house are very friendly, yet discrete. The villa is surrounded by farm land and beautiful mountains, with a crystal clear river just a 5 minute stroll away.The outside kitchen and dining area is fabulous. We are already booking for next year....so many mountains yet to climb. Thank to the Santini's for letting us share their beautiful home.

Lovely private villa in very tranquil setting

5 of 5
We enjoyed a really peaceful break in this lovely villa. Jean Marie and his partner made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Location is great and a good base to tour the eastern and central parts of Corsica. Really nice restaurants within a 10 minute drive and a good supermarket in the local town. Would definitely recommend if you want a get away from it all break. No nearby bars or restaurants but that suited us.
