Make a villa in Corsica your home away from home

Even though it's shorter than most of Britain is wide, Corsica is twice as high, earning it the title of the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean; its highest peak, Monte Cinto, is a lofty 2,706 metres above sea level. Closer to Italy than to mainland France, Corsica villas give visitors the opportunity to explore the island's towering terrain and hybrid culture, which has developed its own unique identity over the centuries of territorial squabbles. With over 200 beaches to choose from, HomeAway's range of Corsica appartments is never far from the surf and sand. With such pervasive highlands and over 1,000km of coast, there's a rich diversity of geography, natural habitats, and enigmatic history to explore.

Corsica holiday rentals tend to congregate around the beaches, so only a few come with access to a pool. This proximity to the sea means there are plenty of aquatic activities to keep visitors busy, with fishing, scuba diving and sailing high on the list of favourites. Coastal self catering in Corsica doesn't restrict your inland options, however, as the mountains are laced with hiking, mountain biking and horse trekking trails, including the famous GR 20 route.

Things to do

Beaches: Holidays in Corsica apartments tend to centre around a beach, and there are plenty to choose from. Over 200 ring the island, so they're usually the focus of most holidays. Swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling are typically available everywhere, while the more popular beaches have the infrastructure for equipment rental.

Nightlife: Corsica's nightlife reflects its independent ways. They have their own French/Italian hybrid cuisine, which heavily features pork and chestnuts. They also make their own wine, beer and even coke. Otherwise, the drinking and dancing scene is quite laid back; this isn't really a place to come to party, though there are nightclubs in some of the larger towns.

Outdoor pursuits: When days on the beach get boring or on a rare cloudy day, the mountainous inland terrain readily lends itself to exploration. Trails criss-cross the island, allowing access on foot, bike or horseback. There are some impressive peaks to tackle too, with at least 45 over 2,000 metres.

Shopping: Corsica isn't really a place to come for designer shopping, but crafts – there are all sorts of local products to be found in the markets, common to pretty much every town. The local honey and olive oil are particularly good if looking to get ingredients for supper. That said, there are a few upscale boutiques in Ajaccio, where HomeAway conveniently offers luxury holiday accommodation. Otherwise, the main tourist centres like Porto-Vecchio, where HomeAway has a selection of more affordable holiday homes, have the more usual touristy souvenir stores.

Culture: The independent culture of Corsica lies mainly in the cuisine and their own idiosyncratic language of Corsican. This bares some resemblance to Italian, but is distinct enough to be more than a dialect, and is classified separately. Architecturally, there are many interesting ruins to explore, tracking the waves of colonising cultures throughout the island's history.

Weather in Corsica

Corsica enjoys one of the highest daily sunshine averages in all of France, at 7.5 hours per day. This is reflected in the temperatures, with an average summertime high of 28°C. Winter highs are not too shabby either, usually topping out in the low-teens. The characteristics of being in the middle of the Mediterranean are such that the holiday season extends slightly longer than elsewhere, feasibly lasting from April to November.

Travel to Corsica

Direct flight options from the UK are sparse, with most trips requiring a connection through France or elsewhere on the continent, but the choice is extensive. EasyJet does fly direct from Bristol and Manchester and, along with Thomsonfly and Germanwings, from London. All three fly into Bastia, with EasyJet also servicing Ajaccio, two of the four airports on the island. There are also regular ferries from Marseille, Nice and Toulon, as well as from Italy, though these can be crowded and expensive in season.

                                                              We stayed for a week in Marta's lovely apartment. It was perfect for the two of us, very clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower was very good. The kitchen was well equipt for self catering. It was really nice to have breakfast sitting at the little table on the balcony, eating lovely fresh baguette from the nearby bakers. The views were amazing, and the property was very well situated. We could walk very easily to the old town where there are numerous restaurants, a lovely place to wander.There are also really nice restaurants along the harbour. The local beaches are the best in the area, so beautiful. Marta made us very welcome, and she said we could call her at any time if we had any problems. She couldn't speak any English, but i really enjoyed practising my rusty french. We had a great holiday and would recommend this apartment.

                                                              Great villa, great location, great views

                                                              A spacious, well appointed villa in a wonderful location. Privacy and quiet made this a perfectly peaceful holiday. The views of the sea over Ile Rousse are stunning and swimming in the pool while watching red kites sailing overhead is a sheer joy. Mme Maestrcci was helpful and easy to deal with and Nathalie, her agent was efficient, friendly and a lovely person. We'll be back.....

                                                              We were more than happy to stay in this high standing property. All is comfortable all bedrooms with her own bathroom; This was perfect place for families with children and relaxation. Amenities in this villa were good - to mention as an example - very big pool with beach for children - pool area was safe, clean and very beautiful, kitchen fully equipped and there were even toys for the kids. Close to famous Beaches of Porto Vecchio and Cala Rossa. Most of all we appreciate friendliness and helpfulness of the owner family.
