Make a holiday villa in Alata your home away from home

Alata is a beautiful village in Corsica. It is within travelling distance of many historical sites and transport options are varied. It is the ideal location from where to explore this charming region of Corsica, a very under-rated Mediterranean island. When looking for a holiday villa in Alata, HomeAway has a wide range and there is bound to be something for everyone. Selecting an Alata holiday villa will only be difficult because there are so many to choose from.

Things to do in Alata

Alata offers the holidaymaker a mixture of everything as there is history alongside beauty and all of it can be taken in while enjoying the warm weather. Relax or explore, it does not matter as each area will provide lasting memories of the time spent in one of the lovely holiday villas in Alata.

-Iles Sanguinaires is a lovely place to visit and they lie just off the Pointe de la Parata. There is some beautiful scenery and the area is classed as a “grand site of France.” It is possible to drive but for the best experience take a boat trip. As well as the few hours that will be spent on the boat, there is a guided walking tour of the largest island Mezzomare. At night the wildlife is spectacular and have many plants not found elsewhere in Corsica.

-Calanches de Piana is made up of pink granite that has been carved by the weather. Alongside them can be seen unusual red figures that make a contrast as they dip into the blue sea. The journey itself through the Calanches de Piana is spectacular and deserving of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The more adventurous will go by foot while for a chance to also see the caves at Capo Rosso there is a boat service.

-Pianais a beautiful place to visit in its own right. The bars and restaurants are in keeping with the traditions of Corsica and are an ideal place to go before returning to your holiday villa in Alata

-Sartene traces its history back to the times of bandits and pirates. A speciality of the region is Sartene wine and this can be tried while admiring the solid houses that are built into the hillside. Many artefacts can be seen in the Museum of Prehistory while the Place de Liberation is a shady square offering up views across the valley. It is worth visiting Sainte Marie church just to see the bell tower and if visiting at Easter there is a parade. Down the hill is the town of Santa Anna and its unusual houses and narrow streets.

-Ajaccio is the capital and largest city of Corsica and is within 5 minutes drive of holiday homes in Alata. Ajaccio has very strong links to Napoleon and it is impossible to miss the fact that this was his birthplace, but fortunately it is not pushed to the extent as to be overbearing. There is a lovely cathedral to visit and also a vibrant harbour. There are many shops and restaurants to allow a break from the historical tour and when the weather is at its best a trip to the beach is in order. The main places of interest are Maison Bonaparte and the Musee Fesch and help make up a wonderful trip.

The Weather in Alata

While the weather is fairly mild throughout the year, there is a clear distinction between winter and summer. Throughout the summer the temperature ranges in the 80°s, and winter tends to be in the region of 55°. Summer brings around 12 hours of sunshine per day while even in the winter there can be an average of 4.

Getting to Alata

There are flights from Gatwick that land at Ajaccio and others go to Figari although this is a further 50km away. Where there are no direct flights an option is a flight or Eurostar to Charles de Gaulle airport and then a flight from there. It is best to hire at a car at Ajaccio for the short drive to your holiday villa in Alata.

The house is on a small farm and although the Plage de Peru is about 10 to 15 minutes walking distance, there are also several other good beaches a short drive away. Local scenery is spectacular and the interior of the island and coast is easily accessible by car. You can walk to Cargese, which has a good patisserie, and other shops provide everything you are likely to require. There are two Supermarkets within a few minutes drive. The owner, Mr Canon who lives in a house on the property is always friendly and approachable. We felt he made a real effort to make our holiday happy and enjoyable. There are a few good walks in the area (we recommend the walk to Capu Rossu a few miles up the coast) and the Mare a Monti walk begins/ends at Cargese.
