Make a holiday rental in Ota, France your home away from home

Ota self-catering accommodation is set in and around a small town in western Corsica. In this picturesque location you’ll be surrounded by rugged hills and olive terraces, in one of the most secluded areas on the island. The Mediterranean is just a few minutes away and here you’ll find a craggy coastline boasting tall cliffs and hidden coves.

Things to do in Ota, France

There are a number of interesting things to see in the town around Ota holiday rentals. In terms of architecture, Ota’s highlight is the Parish Church of St John the Baptist, which was constructed in the 1100s and has undergone a history as tumultuous as the island around it, with various sackings taking place in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Another landmark worth seeing is the Genoese bridge of Pianella, which sits at the confluence of two local streams. There’s also a well-known natural landmark in the mountainside above Ota. The Rock of Ota is a large mass of limestone that sits at a height of more than 1200 metres directly above the town – it’s appears to be in a very precarious position and legend has it that the rock is kept in place by monks with chains.

If you’d like to experience the dramatic scenery around Ota holiday accommodation then you could follow the route of a historic mule trail. Along the way you’ll pass the Spelunca gorges and eventually you’ll reach the town of Evisa. There are a number of sheltered coves that can be reached by car from Ota. One of the best is Aron Plage, which offers a relatively large crescent shaped beach, lapped by calm and clear waters, and backed up by rugged hills.

The rooms are nice and cool, even in the Corsican summer. English speaking host is friendly and provides good service. We would certainly recommend this appartement. Ylse & Bob

You definitely need a car if you want to go anywhere apart from the beach. This isn't a downside to the property at all, most other properties are the same. Views are stunning from the bedroom window and terrace over to Cargese. Well equipped and was clean on arrival. Key code entry to the grounds making you feel safe. Would definitely recommend.
