Make a apartment in Calvi your home away from home

Holiday apartments and villas in Calvi are some of the most desirable among HomeAway rentals in Corsica; it's possibly the busiest tourist resort on the island. The super-rich sail from Cannes for a look at the magnificent citadel lording over the harbour, backed by snow-peaked mountains and to sample the wines, cheeses, olive oils, honey, and wild boar sausage for which Corsica is famed. The five-mile-long bay also inspires droves of visitors to Calvi holiday rentals, though in the off-season, it's easy to find the entire beach to oneself. The seafront promenade provides a succession of cafés, bars and restaurants from which to watch the world go by, though for a more authentic Corsican experience, the mountainous hinterland beckons. Summer visitors to Calvi villas can enjoy one of the many music festivals, and the regular art exhibition in the 13th-century citadel.

When surrounded by the attractions of Calvi, it's difficult to stay indoors for long. The beach is one of the finest on the Mediterranean, with more than enough space to find a quiet patch, and the mountains ache to be explored. Most Calvi accommodation comes with a fully kitted kitchen and air-conditioning, and a few have access to a pool.

Things to do

Beaches: The sandy beach at Calvi is a wonder, arcing around the coast to the east, but anchored in the town's scenic marina. There are all kinds of watersports facilities available, of which sailing is particularly popular. Scuba diving is also available at the tourist office by the marina, and there are several kayaking/windsurfing outlets along the beach.

Food and drink: Over recent years, Calvi has been reinventing itself as a cultural centre, and one method was to focus on the culinary delights of Corsica. As well as the local wines (Corsica is the third-largest wine producing region in France), the pork, honey, world-beating olive oils and chestnut flour (and beer) are definitely worth sampling.

Outdoor pursuits: Aside from the proliferation of watersports and mountain activities, the UNESCO Marine World Heritage Site of Scandola can be visited by glass-bottomed boats right out of Calvi. Dolphins and seals play above amazingly pink rocks on the sea bed, and red volcanic cliffs tower half a mile high above the waves.

Shopping: The varieties of dried meats, honeys, olive oils, wines and herbs make Calvi a gourmand's paradise for the self-caterer. Boutiques and souvenir shops also abound, but not to be missed is the Crafts Trail through the local mountain villages. Centred on Pigna, it encourages and supports local craftsmen, and there are some unique items to pick up.

Culture: The locals claim Christopher Columbus was born here, and there's not much evidence to say he wasn't. The summer-long art exhibit in the citadel is a must-see, and the summer months from June to September see a procession of music festivals, usually centred around the citadel.

Weather in Calvi

Calvi experiences the typical Mediterranean climate of idyllic summers and mild winters. It never gets quite as hot on Corsica as it can on the mainland because of the cooling effect of the sea. High temperatures average 28-29°C during the summer months, and 13-14°C during the winter. What little rainfall there is generally falls in the autumn.

Travel to Calvi

Calvi does have its own airport, but this is primarily for charter and private flights. Bastia Airport is fairly close by, however, which is the largest airport on Corsica and has regular direct flights to the UK. Both towns have ferry connections to mainland France, which adds the major Nice Cote d'Azur Airport as an additional possibility. HomeAway also offers luxury accommodation in Bastia for a quite different Corsican experience.

It is bigger then the pictures make it look, very well equipped, clean and quite. The beach is just a short walk away (About 4 min with a 3 year old) and with a spectacular sun rise panorama which our kids loved (we had to get up early nearly every day to look at it). Calvi itself is also walking distend an offers a variety of shops, cafes. There is a good backery just around the corner on the way to the "Casino" (supermarket). Pierre was helpful and responded quickly to question. It was a great stay.

                                                                                                    4 of 5

Very clean and spacious with good standard of finishings. However the apartment is beside a Tabac and a travel agent which made it very noisy during the day. Evenings are fine as all nearby shops closed at 8pm. The homeaway app also made communication a lot more difficult as all contact was via an online app rather than email. Further the location of the apartment is not as shown on the app but is located on a different street and direct instructions on how to check in need addressing. Finally if paying the additional 15 euros for linen please note that this excludes bath towels.

You could choose between the terrace at the front or back for breakfast, depending on whether you wanted sun or shade. The view of the citadel from the front terrace was fantastic. A level below was the pool, where there was plenty of room for sun or shade for the four of us. The kitchen was well equipped and it was great that a few provisions were provided in the fridge and cupboards, such as milk, butter, jam etc. The location was great, about a 10 minute walk to a large supermarket and a 15-20 minute walk to town, or if you have a car, you can drive and park in one of the town car parks (for a charge). All in all we had a great time and many thanks to Imogen and James who provided a great service.
