Make a villa in Monacia d'Aullene your home away from home

An accommodation in Monacia d'Aullene is located in a quiet, unassuming Corsican village set in the foothills of the Corse-de-Sud mountains. For unspoiled, undeveloped beaches away from the tourist crowds of Bonifacio to the south and Propriano to the north, Monacia d'Aullene villas offer the perfect opportunity for a peaceful getaway. If mountains are preferred to the sea, they are also right on the doorstep; the hills around Monacia d'Aullene holiday rentals are laced with paths and trails leading into the highland proper. While children are welcome in some villas and apartments in Monacia d'Aullene, the lack of lifeguards on some of the more secluded beaches may be of concern to parents with very young children.

Only a few Monacia d'Aullene holiday rentals have access to a pool, and very few are wheelchair accessible due to their rural nature. Most do have fully equipped kitchens, however, with laundry facilities for longer-term visitors. Around half of Monacia d'Aullene self catering have internet access and satellite TV, for quiet, cosy nights in after a day of exploration.

Things to do

Beaches: The closest beaches are about three miles from Monacia d'Aullene, but can take some getting to, down dirt roads and footpaths. There are also some great cliff walks on the coast. For more tourist-oriented beaches with facilities, visitors can drive to Bonifacio (16 miles away), or consider renting accommodation in Propriano (25 miles), or holiday homes in Porto-Vecchio (22 miles) instead.

Food and drink: There are a couple of decent restaurants in Monacia d'Aullene and the surrounding villages, but unless guests are willing to do some significant driving every mealtime, self-catering is going to be the primary modus operandi. Corsica is great for locals wines, excellent beer and even their own coke! The nearest supermarket is a Spar in Pianottoli-Caldarello, about three miles away.

Outdoor pursuits: With mountains and the coast so close, the choices for activities are limited only by the imagination. If equipment is required, however, such as a boat and skis for water-skiing, or a surfboard, a sojourn must be made to one of the larger coastal towns nearby. Monacia d'Aullene is all about getting away from the tourist trail.

Shopping: There are no shops to speak of in Monacia d'Aullene – not even a regular market – so hiring a car is really necessary. Food shopping can be done at the supermarket in Pianottoli-Caldarello, around three miles away. For souvenirs and other such items, visitors have to roam further afield to the larger coastal towns like Bonifacio. Luckily, these towns are worth visiting on their own merit.

Culture: For history and art, the often-photographed village of Sartene is a unique stop around eight miles to the north, with its Genoese Towers and archaeological sites to explore. In the other direction, Bonifacio has wonderful architecture and museums, and to the east Port-Vecchio has Bronze Age and Roman ruins.

Weather in Monacia d'Aullene

The Mediterranean climate describes long, hot summers and short, mild winters. The moderating influence of the sea means temperatures never really get too hot, typically topping out in the high-20 during the summer. Winters see highs in the low- and mid-teens, and frosts are exceedingly rare. The majority of precipitation falls during the months of October and November.

Travel to Monacia d'Aullene

Regular ferries from Marseille, Toulon and Nice dock at Ajaccio and Porto-Vecchio, which give guests the option to drive from the UK or fly in to Nice or Marseille, and hire a car from there.

Ideal for a couple and if you enjoy watching the world go by from a bird's eye view (4th floor). The cleaning charge ensures that you'll have no work at the start or finish of your holiday. We found the apartment comfortable and handy for restaurants and boulangerie/supermarket in the marina area - and only a (steep!) 10 minute walk to the lovely old town. The wifi and TV worked well (if you can be dragged away from the balcony!). Marta is a caring host who will happily provide all local information. I also had wonderful reflexology from Valérie Valli.

L'endroit est un peu éloigné mais par contre la vue est splendide. Le propriétaire est charmant et toujours prêt à donner des explications. Nous recommandons certainement cet endroit!
