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

Despite its rural aspect, Figari airport is actually quite close (ten miles) to Monacia d'Aullene if visitors don't mind making an additional connecting flight from the UK. For direct flights, Ajaccio (70 miles) and Bastia (100 miles) airports are the only two options. 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.

A nicely presented, comfortable property in a quiet, rural location.

5 of 5
The house is in a quiet rural location with a few other properties around, and was easy to find. The location was fine for exploring this part of Corsica, which is not very developed and very relaxing. There was more than enough room for the four of us. It was nicely presented, clean and comfortable. Bernadette and Christian were very welcoming. Their local knowledge of the best beaches was invaluable (these would have been hard to find otherwise), and gave good advice on what time of day to visit places like Bonifacio. The nearest supermarket (Spar) is about 20 minutes away, and is in a small town with a great pizzeria. With trips to Bonifacio, Sartene, and some super beaches we easily filled a week here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A perfect getaway - sea, views and tranquility

5 of 5
The house is perfectly situated, at the very top of Tizzano, looking down on the beautiful beach and across the bay. Very peaceful, as barely any passing traffic. The vast living/kitchen/dining room has beautiful views through every window. The house was spotlessly clean, and every bedroom looked fresh and welcoming. It is simply furnished, but provides everything you would need. The drive is very steep, and parking and driving up it was a bit intimidating at first, but you get used to it. Being at the very top of the hill, it's a steep walk down to the beach, but easily managed in 10 minutes, and quicker for fitter people! We managed with 3 ladies aged over 90! Tizzano itself provides everything you could need - a few excellent restaurants right on the beach, a couple of shops for all the basics, and a perfect, huge beach, with the whitest sand, and bluest sea. Being up high, it is quite exposed, so when it is windy, it is difficult to find a sheltered spot - but that's when the large amount of space inside, and the huge french windows are a particular asset. If it is very windy there are plenty of other more sheltered beaches to explore - we recommend Campomoro. Dealing with Francesca, and arranging the booking was so easy - she was so helpful, and accommodating. Paulina, the lovely lady who cleans the house, and welcomes you could not have been kinder or more helpful. All in all this was a hugely successful holiday, in a lovely house, in a perfect position.
