Make a villa in Corse-du-Sud your home away from home

HomeAway's villas in Corse-du-Sud are spread across the southern part of Corsica (which is precisely what Corse-du-Sud means). More precisely, the administrative border between Corse-du-Sud and Haute-Corse splits the island diagonally, with Corse-du-Sud occupying the southwesterly portion. The primary attraction of staying at Corse-du-Sud accommodation is the proliferation of beaches around its coast. Pristine, clean, idyllic coves, many unreachable by road, are a mixture of sand, shale and pebble. It's quite possible, even in the high season, to find an empty beach hidden from view. The only things to worry about are access and the lack of lifeguards: only about 25% of Corsica's beaches are manned. With Corsica's position in the middle of the Mediterranean, the water is exceptionally clean, which makes for great snorkelling and scuba diving.

Proximity to the coast means most Corse-du-Sud holiday rentals don't come with access to a pool, being surplus to requirement with a beach right on the doorstep. The rural nature of many of the holiday rentals in Corse-du-Sud means many are inaccessible by wheelchairs. Most villas and apartments in Corse-du-Sud have dishwashers and washer/dryers, and about half have internet access.

Things to do

Beaches: Corsica's small size means visitors are not necessarily tied to a single beach, and the choice of alternatives is literally overwhelming. Santa Guilia and Palombaggia are probably the most prominent beaches for Corse-du-Sud villas, just south of HomeAway accommodation in the large town of Porto-Vecchio.

Nightlife: Corse-de-Sud pays lip service to the Mediterranean party scene rather than fully commits. The majority of evening entertainment consists of more subdued restaurants and cafés, though there is the occasional nightclub in the larger towns. One of note is Via Notte in Porto-Vecchio, which claims to be the largest open-air nightclub in Europe.

Outdoor pursuits: Corsica is probably most famous its hiking, and there are many mountain paths and trails throughout the island. Each takes hikers through some spectacular and little-known scenery, especially the famous GR 20 route, which wends for 130 miles, very roughly following the Corse-de-Sud/Haute-Corse border. Watersports are also very popular around the busier beaches.

Shopping: Aside from the usual souvenir bric-a-brac in touristy coastal towns, the only real shopping opportunities are the local markets typical to each settlement. There are more boutique-style stores in chic destinations such as Ajaccio, Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio, however, to cater to the international sailing set.

Culture: Napoleon was born on Corsica in the town of Ajaccio, where HomeAway has luxury holiday homes for rent. His family home is now, of course, a museum. The town is also home to the Musee Fesch, which houses an impressive collection of Italian art. Elsewhere, the history is strewn across the landscape in castles, towers, and hilltop villages, with the village of Bonifacio particularly worth visiting.

Weather in Corse-du-Sud

The Mediterranean climate of these central islands is typified by long, hot summers and short, mild winters. High temperatures in the summer can reach 28°C and above, while the winter highs rarely drop into single digits. Rain mainly falls during the winter, and typically slightly less annually than on the Cote d'Azur, the closest part of mainland France.

Travel to Corse-du-Sud

Regular ferries run from mainland France and Italy, but can get busy in the summer, especially from Nice – which also, incidentally, has a very convenient international flight option: the Nice Cote d'Azur Airport. Nice is also reachable by train from London in about nine hours with fortuitous connections. For direct flights, there are two linking directly with the UK: Bastia and Ajaccio.

Wonderful place to stay if your looking for an authentic Corsican village stay.

5 of 5
Lovely accommodation with everything we needed, in the mountains for peace and quiet, yet still close enough to Ajaccio for easy airport access. Only found one or two people that understood English, and our French was just as bad. Did not make it difficult though, with a few hand gestures, we managed fine. Village people are very friendly, and happy to see you. Was a breath of fresh air for digital detox, getting back to nature, and reconnecting with your partner. We did lots of walking/hiking while we were there, and the scenery is amazing (especially coming from flat East Anglia!). Just be aware though that with some very curvy roads, it generally takes twice as long to get anywhere than you think it will! Communication with Monique was great with quick responses, and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend a stay here, particularly if like us you have moved on from package/resort centre holidays and want to escape to a slower (even for a short time) pace of life, then this would be a perfect location.
