Make a holiday villa in Aleria your home away from home

Aleria's position as the Roman capital of ancient Corsica means holiday rentals in Aleria put guests right at the heart of Corsica's history. The coastal plain topography around Aleria contrasts to the pervasion of mountains in Corsica, and illustrates why the Romans chose the site as the centre of their power, primarily for agricultural opportunities and the natural harbours supplied by the system of huge lagoons. To this day, this region is one of the island's most cultivated, meaning this particular landscape is responsible for a large part of the farmed produce, especially grapes and citrus fruits. Aleria holiday apartments and villas may be in one of the largest towns in Aleria, but scaled to mainland definitions, it remains scarcely more than a village (though it does host the island's main archaeological museum). With such unfettered access to the sea, as well as the huge beaches along the barrier islands, the mountains a short drive away, and the incredibly absorbing history, rentals in Aleria are particularly suited for those who wish for variety in their holidays.

Aleria holiday accommodation typically comes with its own barbecue area and fully equipped kitchen, with laundry facilities to cater for longer stays. Most have internet access and air-conditioning, which only really needs to be used on the hottest summer days.

Things to do

Beaches: The beaches along the barrier islands are extensive, running for tens of miles in both directions up and down the coast. Commercial facilities may not match the bustling beaches near accommodation in Porto-Vecchio or villas in Ajaccio, but for peace, quiet and seclusion, they're difficult to top.

Food and drink: As one might expect in a coastal agricultural region, the food is spectacularly good. This area produces some of the finest olive oil in the world, is the third-largest producer of French wine, and its people are particularly proud of their honey and charcuterie. Many of the lagoons also farm oysters, said to be a particular favourite of Corsica's most famous son, Napoleon.

Outdoor pursuits: Vineyards are popular spots to visit around Aleria, and there are a surprising amount of tennis courts. Walking holidays, however, are particularly suited to this area thanks to its unchallenging geography, but immense scenery. For the more robust visitor, watersports are available on the coast and the mountains are close for more athletic hiking.

Culture: The historical Roman population of Aleria is said to be around 80,000, which gives some insight into the importance of the place as an agricultural granary for the Empire. The Greeks, Etruscans and Carthaginians also similarly colonised, which is what packs Aleria's museum of archaeology with so many intriguing artifacts.

Weather in Aleria

Aleria experiences a typical Mediterranean island climate, which typically means high temperatures from April to October. Average highs totter around the 28-29°C mark. Winters are temperate with little in the way of cold weather; frosts are almost unheard of. Most of the scant precipitation occurs during the months of autumn.

Travel to Aleria

Corsica's main airport at Bastia is only 35 miles away. This airport offers the largest selection of direct flights to the UK. Ajaccio airport has more limited direct flights, at 65 miles away, but the airport at Solenzara is the closest at 17 miles, but requires a connection through mainland Europe. Alternatively, ferries can be caught from Nice, Toulon or Marseille in the south of France.

**Absolutely breathtaking setting** A real gem. Tastefully decorated and a real pleasure to stay in.

5 of 5
The house, gardens and terrace are as gorgeous as the photo's suggest. The terrace is where we spent the most time, lazing in the shade. It’s a 3 bed property, but there are enough reception rooms that groups could comfortably stay together and enjoy their own space. The swimming pool is the real cherry on the cake. Overlooking the spectacular lake with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains that just cannot be captured in photographs. The pool was a great temperature during our 9 day stay in the middle of June ’18 (we often find other unheated villa pools so cold, but this was perfect, perhaps as it’s not too deep). It’s deep enough to jump in and swim lengths ‘chest deep’ on my husband, but has the very reassuring safety features of a pool alarm and foot ledges running along the inside for less-able little swimmers. A car is essential as it’s in a charming, rural spot. The setting is as private as it comes and incredibly peaceful. There is a road set back behind the property but it’s only used infrequently and goes unnoticed and the lake feels like it’s there just for you, with no one else around bar the horses in the distance gathered at the bank for a drink. You’re a short drive from the supermarche, beaches, shops and restaurants of Aleria or you are well based to travel a little further and explore waterfalls or take boat trips etc. The real treasures of this property are the owners. You entrust your precious annual holiday to strangers, hoping that they will take care of you - and these owners didn’t disappoint. Every communication was a genuine pleasure (of which there were many, as I’m a total chatterbox). They have the most beautifully sweet property (Air con would have been a bonus as us Brits aren’t acclimatised to warm weather, but the fans helped keep the night-time heat at bay). I’m incredibly grateful that my family got to experience it and hope to return. We are a family of 3 who have very high expectations for our one precious holiday a year. My husband has a stressful career and I’m a 24/7 carer for our daughter with complex medical needs. Sometimes high-end villas feel too precious like you can’t touch anything, or other times like you’re staying in someone else’s home with all of their possessions. That is not the case here. We like a home from home feeling, peaceful surrounding, no neighbours, light, space and a good Wifi connection. The lakehouse met all of our requirements in spades! The Millward family highly recommend.
