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.

A perfect little house to escape from it all

5 of 5
Located in a quiet village in the mountains, this house is sat high above a quiet road with an awesome view from the lounge window and balcony. The only noise is from the birds and crickets which was glorious! The house owner Marie met us close by and drove us to the house and showed us around. She made sure we knew where everything was and that she owned the local bar so wouldn't be far away if we needed anything! The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, pots & pans, dishes & cutlery, hob and separate oven. It was nice to have the coffee machine, something we made good use of. There were only 2 of us staying but there's definitely room for 4 adults (1 double bed & 2 single beds). The house is only a few years old so everything felt quite modern. It was nice to have the bedroom cupboards to hang our clothes up. There's an iron, spare towels and blankets. There's a drying rack outside with lots of space in case you do any washing and plenty of room for sunbathing and dining on the patio, despite looking small in the pictures. The electric gate made us feel secure and operates via a key fob. We walked into the village a few times for a drink and a meal (a few mins walk), we used the post office and got some supplies from the local butchers. There's also a patisserie in the village but we didn't try it out. Everyone was really nice and even though we didn't speak much French, we still got by ok because they made an effort with us (lucky for us!). The nearest supermarket is a reasonable size Spa 20 mins by car, but that's about it accept a few restaurants dotted around. The main city of Ajaccio about 40 mins away is where we flew to and it has an abundance of shops including lots of large supermarkets, home stores and a Decathlon. You would not be able to stay on this island without hiring a car because the mountains make everything further to get to but that's just the nature of the terrain and the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was a nice, comfortable house to come home to after a day of exploring.
