Make a villa in Haute-Corse your home away from home

HomeAway's villas in Haute-Corse (literally 'High Corsica') are found throughout the north of the island. Most of Corsica is extremely mountainous, which means travelling through the interior can be spectacular, if not time-consuming. Haute-Corse accommodation is therefore an ideal choice for the outward bound, as Corsica has over 1,200 miles of hiking, biking and horse trekking trails to explore, including the famous GR 20 trail, which splits the island diagonally, roughly along the border with Corse-du-Sud, the southern part of the island also replete with HomeAway holiday rentals. The coast of the island is home to over 200 beaches, which run the gamut from busy commercial enterprises to idyllic deserted coves accessed only by boat or on foot.

Around a quarter of holiday villas and apartments in Haute-Corse have pools, which typically augment a position close to the sea; the vast majority of Haute-Corse villas are located on the coast. Most also come with a barbecue area, laundry facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Things to do

Beaches: Corsica is known throughout the Mediterranean for its 200 beaches; not too shabby for an island with only 620 miles of coastline. Several in the north have become popular with tourists and have developed appropriate facilities. Calvi is particularly nice, with a high concentration of HomeAway accommodation. For a quieter time off the beaten track, however, there are also numerous more isolated options.

Food and drink: Reasonable nights out can be had in the main towns of Calvi, L'Ile Rousse, and Bastia, though the relaxed, laid-back restaurant lifestyle of Corsica's nightlife may not suit the more energetic partier. Corsica makes its own wines, and strangely enough, cola. Foods to gravitate towards include the excellent charcuterie, olive oils and local honey.

Outdoor pursuits: Haute-Corse is home to Corsica's highest peak, the near 3,000-metre Monte Cinto. With 45 other peaks over 2,000 metres high on an island around the same size as Kent, the potential for outdoor diversions are quite obvious. Hiking, biking and horse riding are all well catered for too. Of course, the numerous beaches and marinas provide for a host of watersports.

Shopping: The small tourist towns of Haute-Corse have the usual souvenirs trinkets and crafts outlets, with prices generally lower than elsewhere in the south of France. Local specialties include the dried meats, honey, olive oils, and the chestnut flour, which adds a unique element to crepes and cakes.

Culture: With Corsica's prime location in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, it has a long and turbulent history, with archaeological remains dating back to Neolithic times. Corte, the island's central university town, hosts the Museum of Corsica, which delves into its archaeological history.

Weather in Haute-Corse

As an island, temperatures don't get quite as hot in the summer as they do on the mainland, which in some areas of the Mediterranean can approach unbearable. High summer averages hover around the 28-29°C mark, obviously tempered by breezes from the sea or elevation in the mountains to take the edge off. Winters see snow on the peaks for skiing, but around the coast the highs rarely drop below the teens. Most of the precipitation falls in the autumn.

Travel to Haute-Corse

Both Calvi and Bastia airports have direct flight options to the UK, but Calvi's are only seasonal charters. Bastia caters to a far wider selection of airlines, and both towns also offer ferry options to the south of France, with Nice being the best bet for a ferry to either, as the Nice Cote-dAzur Airport is a major flight hub.

The terrace is large with sunloungers, chairs, and equipment for al fresco eating, and has a lovely view over the bay. Easy walk to the nearest shops and beach, but a car is essential for exploring further afield and the many places of interest and restaurants.

We loved relaxing on the balcony after a day out walking, and ate most of our meals there. Shops, bars and restaurants are just a short walk from the apartment. It was a real bonus having private parking right outside the building. The owner was very friendly, helpful and welcoming, and always responded quickly to emails before our visit. The only thing missing for us was a grill or toaster in the kitchen. We loved every minute of our stay and hope to return again soon.

It is well equipped and comfortable although definitely compact. It is one of several gite in a beautiful house which sits in a wonderful hillside position with a very pleasant garden and lovely views. The swimming pond is a fantastic bonus. Martin and Majo are friendly and helpful hosts who live on the premises. It's a very good area for sea swimming and walking. We would definitely recommend this gite to others. If you are going to book it's worth bearing in mind that sheets, towels and cleaning are all extra, in our case another €75.
