Make a villa in Monticello your home away from home

Holiday villas and apartments in Monticello are sited among the hills which sit behind the scenic coastal town of L'Ile-Rousse in the north of Corsica. Monticello villas combine the slower pace of life in a mountain village with the bustle of a busy seaside resort and fantastic beaches only three miles away. That said, Monticello accommodation is also located in the village thought to be the birthplace of Columbus's mother, so the historical significance couldn't be more pleasantly counterintuitive. Views up the western coast of Cap Corse provide a dramatic backdrop for al fresco dining, and the mountain roads above meander between fortress villages clinging spectacularly to the cliffs and slopes. Proximity to the busy resort of Calvi, which also houses a selection of HomeAway holiday homes, means shopping for food or planning a good night out is never an issue.

Self Caterings in Monticello are typically equipped with full kitchens and barbecue areas, and quite a few have their own pools. There are some with tennis courts and a golf course in the village.

Things to do

Beaches: The beaches at L'Ile Rousse and Calvi are counted among the finest on the Mediterranean, and there is a miniature train linking the two, and smaller beaches in between. Calvi is the larger resort, but the beach there is by far the largest, which means a lot more space for everybody.

Food and drink: There are a handful of restaurants in Monticello, ranging from a pizza joint to the gourmet restaurant at the Hotel A Pasturella, which is pricey, but worth a splurge. There's no real nightlife to speak of, but L'Ile Rousse and Calvi both have a lively bar scene, and Calvi especially provides for the self-caterer in admirable style.

Outdoor pursuits: Watersports from the beach and marinas are obviously a big attraction, but Corsica introduces mountains into the mix, which involve a whole different set of activities to choose from. Horse trekking is very popular, as are mountain biking and hiking through the peerless scenery.

Shopping: The Greek-style market in L'Ile Rousse is only three miles away, and is surrounded by small boutique shops. A broader range can be found in more distant Calvi, which is rapidly establishing itself as a gourmet shopping destination, specialising in the local Corsican produce.

Weather in Monticello

The weather in Monticello conforms to the Mediterranean norm of hot summers and mild winters. Spring is a good time to visit for the flowers and to beat the crowds. Summer temperatures are considered unusual if they breach 30°C, while winters are similarly moderate, with high temps dropping into the single digits only rarely. What rainfall there is occurs mainly in October and November.

Travel to Monticello

Bastia Airport is the nearest flight option direct from the UK, at around 25 miles away. HomeAway also has luxury holiday accommodation available here, if a more urban holiday base is desired. Calvi also has an airport that is much closer, but only caters to seasonal charters. Both towns are also ferry ports, with regular services from the south of France, which opens up Nice and Marseille as direct flight options from the UK.

Spacious and airy, loved the interior and a pool

4 of 5
Very smooth booking, arrival and departure with friendly M. Frascati. Lovely property, clean bright airy and spacious. Loved the sliding doors and decking. Didn't realise the pool wouldn't be fully in the sun in mid Sept and the front was a close to a road and felt a little exposed. However would happily stay there again. Corsica wonderful especially the fact that English isn't widely spoken, fun to 'have a go' en francais

Second visit and not the last

5 of 5
We had two perfect weeks at this comfortable and perfectly located villa in 2015. We returned in 2016 and enjoyed the villa again for another two weeks of rest, relaxation and wonderful sea views. On our last night we booked again for 2017. It's so good we keep coming back. Everything is perfect and the people are so helpful and friendly. We might just come every year. We all love it.
