Make a holiday villa in Bastelica your home away from home

Sometimes it’s hard to choose between France and Italy for a rural escape. With a Bastelica holiday home, however, you can have the best of both worlds: a bit of Italian flavour in France, since Bastelica is located almost in the centre of Corsica. Holiday villas in Bastelica are a great base from which to explore the island and come in a variety of sizes, from cosy little homes for a romantic break with your partner to rambling mansions that sleep as many as a dozen people. All holiday villas in Bastelica come with conveniences like BBQ facilities for preparing al fresco meals in keeping with the outdoorsy lifestyle on the island.

Things to do

Bastelica is a small town located just a little south of the centre of Corsica. It’s within a short drive from some of South Corsica’s most interesting attractions. Its mountainous location means that you’ll find a way to enjoy the great outdoors, no matter what time of year you visit.

-Hiking, biking and horse-riding are popular in summer in the glorious countryside around holiday villas in Bastelica. There are many winding roads to follow through the rocky, hilly landscape. In addition, the GR 20, one of Europe’s top long-distance hiking trails, passes only a couple of miles east of Bastelica, making it very easy to hike part of the route.

-Ski-ing is the sport of choice in winter. The winter sports resort of Val d’Ese is less than 7 miles to the east of Bastelica so you can spend the day on the slopes and then return to the comfort of your villa for something warm to drink. There is a skiing school at the resort too if you need to brush up on your skills.

-The Restonica Valley is one of Corsica’s most dramatic landscapes and is about 16 miles south of a Bastelica holiday chalet. Here you’ll find the Restonica River winding through steep cliffs and deep gorges, forming glacial lakes like the beautiful Lac de Melo and Lac de Capitello. It’s a rather strenuous walk to get to the lakes but you’ll be spoilt for choice of idyllic picnic spots.

-Ajaccio the coastal capital of Corsica is located a little less than 17 miles south-west of Bastelica. When you stroll around the streets of this historic little port, you’ll see several monuments dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, making it clear who the most famous person was to have been born here. There is a museum dedicated to the French military leader too. However, Ajaccio has more to offer than things Napoleon: There are many cafes and bars where you can enjoy Corsican fare, there are great beaches nearby and the botanical gardens and olive groves located at the Bonaparte country estate a little to the north-west of town are a lovely green oasis.

-The Sanguinaires Archipelago is a fun boat trip from Ajaccio. This group of rocky islands has good hiking and small but lovely beaches. The views from the hilltops are spectacular, especially around sunset when everything is aglow with shades of red and orange and the old Genoese towers and more modern lighthouses holding fort.

The weather in Bastelica

Bastelica has a Mediterranean climate with most of the rain falling in winter. There may be some rainy days in summer too, but this will be welcome respite from the average maximum summer temperatures that can reach around 29 °C. Winters are cool but not too cold, with temperatures of around 4 °C at night and 14 °C in the daytime.

Getting to Bastelica

The easiest way to get to your holiday home in Bastelica is to travel to Ajaccio first and then hire a car to drive to Bastelica, since Corsican public transport isn’t the best. Ajaccio Napoleon Bonaparte Airport receives flights from several French cities and, in summer, also from a number of other European destinations, including London. Another way to reach Ajaccio is to travel in by ferry from Nice, Marseille or Toulon.

Beautiful modern apartment - first class

5 of 5
The pictures on the website don't do this holiday home justice! It's incredibly spacious and high spec and a very short walk to a beautiful quiet beach. We liked the whole area and will definitely visit again.

Wonderful views, easy access to beautiful clear water at lovely beaches

4 of 5
We had a brilliant time at Villa Serena. The terraces offer stunning views across the Golfe d'Ajaccio which we enjoyed at all times of the day. The pool with its child-alarm and high gate was very helpful for us with the 4 children in our party. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and the Carrefour, poissonerie and many boulangeries are all close by. We thoroughly enjoyed discovering the beautiful beaches south of Porticcio which is quite built up (and can be loud at night with music from the nightclubs). We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
