Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Borgo, Corsica your home away from home

Borgo is a small village in the Haute Corse or Upper Corsica region in the north east of the island. Charming hilltop villages, cliffs, gorges, lakes and mountain peaks make this a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday home in Corsica for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and historic towns as well as the nearby sandy beaches.

Things to Do in Borgo, Corsica

Step Back in History

Carved 3,000 years ago, the menhirs which line the wall at Pieve are interesting to see. These human representations stand imposingly in an attractive setting, although all three were discovered in separate locations in the surrounding mountains.

Walk the Upper Corniche

Starting from the town of Bastia is the famous Upper Corniche route for walkers. It has excellent views across the town and coast. The route goes through Montserrato and Cardo to the western edge of the Cap Corse.

Beaches

Corsica has some fabulous beaches offering snorkeling, surfing, sunbathing and other watersports activities. One of the closest to your holiday rental in Borgo is Marana Beach. The south end of the beach is known as a gay area. There are also several lovely coves to the north of Bastia including Miomo Beach near the Genoese tower, and Lavasina Beach.

Places to Visit Around Borgo, Corsica

Bastia

Bastia is a commercial port town with an interesting old harbour, a promenade, citadel and some nice cafés and restaurants. Within the old town are some amazing architectural sights as the crumbling buildings are propped up with beams, giving it a certain derelict charm! There are plenty of grand homes in the posh Terra Nova district, along with the Governor’s Palace and the Church of Sainte-Marie l'Assomption.

Cap Corse

This interesting peninsula makes a great day trip from your Borgo holiday home, exploring the small fishing villages isolated by the mountain backdrop. There are several panoramic viewpoints along the way and some good beaches.

Corte

Corte was once the capital of Corsica and it is now marooned in the centre of the island. The village is precariously perched on a rock above the Tavignano Valley. The citadel is the main attraction along with the museum within. See the Fontaine de Quatre Canons and the Church of the Annunciation. The river has a charming Genoese bridge spanning it.

                                                                                                      The villa was in a good location, just 200 metres to the beach. It was well fitted out with electrical equipment, especially the WiFi and television system, which worked very well. The stairs to the bedrooms are quite steep so, as advertised, it's not suitable for people with limited mobility. I should just add that the bathroom is downstairs so if you need to go to the bathroom in the night then you need to be careful. The villa is a good size for 2 adults and 2 children but might be rather cramped for more people. The local shop and cafe are within easy walking distance, but apart from that you probably do need to have the use of a car. We really loved Corsica, it's a beautiful island and when we stayed during May was not at all crowded. Bastia makes a good base to see the north of the island.

Sei es im Pool oder beim Pool-Billard. Sei es auf der sonnigen Terrasse oder beim Gasgrill. Sei es beim Feigenpflücken oder bei der Bewunderung der vielen blühenden Pflanzen. Zudem liegt die Villa ideal zu Ausflügen nach Bastia, zum Strand nach La Marana oder St. Florence. Und auch die Bergwelt liegt trotz der vielen Kurven on Korsika nicht weit. Also rundherum zu empfehlen.
