Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Palombaggia also enquired about Sardinia villas, villas in Sicily and Tenerife villas

Make a villa in Palombaggia your home away from home

Located next to the best-known beach on Corsica, villas in Palombaggia offer visitors convenient access to one of the wonders of the Mediterranean. The beach isn't the only reason to take a holiday rental in Palombaggia, however, as there is plenty more to see and do, including visiting a host of other beaches that – while maybe not as well known – are certainly just as beautiful. The town of Porto-Vecchio, where HomeAway also has a selection of holiday homes, is just two miles away and probably the most sought-after destination on Corsica. This is thanks not only to its tourism infrastructure, but also its incredible history and architecture.

That said, the beauty of villas and apartments in Palombaggia is that they can put guests right next to the thick of it, whilst offering a quiet retreat at the end of the day, somewhat away from the urban bustle. Holiday accommodation in Palombaggia is also some of the most up-to-date on the island, with fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities and entertainment technology. Sadly, few Palombaggia apartments have introduced wheelchair accessibility due to their rural nature, but many are family friendly and welcome younger children.

Things to do

Beaches: Palombaggia beach is popular for good reason: sugar-white sand accented by red granite rocks, crystalline waters, and shady pine trees. It gets crowded during the height of the season, but there are several other beaches of note around Porto-Vecchio. Take the stretch beside holiday homes in Pinarellu, a beach which (along with Palombaggia) was voted one of top 20 in Europe by the Times.

Nightlife: Porto-Vecchio has arguably the finest nightlife on Corsica. The old town throngs with trendy bars and restaurants, and there are several nightclubs to keep feet moving until the early hours of the morning. That said, the Corsican party crowd is usually a little more mature than is found in mainland party resorts.

Outdoor pursuits: Corsica is about beaches and mountains, because that's primarily what it consists of. Thus, activities tend to centre around those locations: guests can enjoy hiking, mountain biking and horse trekking in the highlands, and fishing, boating, water-skiing on the water. Sailing is particularly popular, and Corsica is an established international sailing destination.

Shopping: Along with Ajaccio, Porto-Vecchio is known for its shopping. There are many boutique clothing shops, and artisanal food shops, which are seeing a boom in popularity thanks to the Slow Food Movement coming out of Italy. Charcuterie, cheeses, honey, and olive oil are particularly popular.

Culture: Bronze Age and Roman ruins abound around Porto-Vecchio. Castellu d'Araghju is a particularly prominent Bronze Age fort, about three miles out of the town and built on an overlooking hilltop. Also take a guided tour of the Porto-Vecchio citadel, and a walk though its old town, which has several galleries to browse.

Weather in Palombaggia

Palombaggio experiences a typical Mediterranean climate moderated by the sea. Temperatures don't get uncomfortable, even in the height of summer, with temperatures rarely topping 30°C. Winter highs tend to hover around the mid-teens, with occasional rare dips into single digits. Most of the rain falls in late autumn/early winter.

Travel to Palombaggia

There are only two direct UK flight airports on Corsica: Ajaccio and Bastia, both about 90 miles from Palombaggia. Solonzara Airport offers a closer commute, at around 30 miles away, but this requires a connecting flight from a hub in mainland Europe. Ferries from Marseille are also an option, and dock in Porto-Vecchio itself, but do get crowded in the summer.

Mike & Rita, the owners, are extremely thorough (detailed notes provided on how to reach CM, about the property itself and about the area) and pleasant to deal with, Karima the housekeeper the same. The apartment has a lovely atmosphere, extremely light and airy, with an unbeatable, stunning view from both bedroom and living room / terrace. The bed is excellent - and that's coming from someone with terrible back troubles. The surroundings are peaceful - just a few neighbours and no noisy bars or anything like that - and there are plenty of excellent restaurants within a few minutes drive. Casa Mia couldn't be better situated for the beach - or I should say beaches - there is a vast choice, and all the ones that we went to were stunning. White sand, pine trees at the back of the beach to shade under, clean clear turquoise / ever changing blues sea - actually I cannot think of a better beach destination in Europe. Even in the first two weeks of August, we had no problem finding an empty area on the beach or a little shady glade for ourselves. The beach bars and restaurants are excellent quality and upmarket. Porto Vecchio is a short drive away and is a lovely place to go out in the evening. Ditto Bonifacio. We did some unforgettable drives up the mountains - walked and swam in the most gorgeous rivers. Don't miss Zonza, Ospedale, Col de Bavelle and the swimming pools of Cabu (river). Casa Mia II was extremely clean and well equipped, we couldn't have wished for a more lovely or comfortable holiday home. The Spar - 10 minutes drive or so - is excellent for fresh veg, fruit, meat and fish as well as wine and staples - you don't need to go any further. Proxi at the bottom of the hill (literally) is great for morning pains au chocolat / croissants. The garden is super - really mature and pretty and would make a brilliant backdrop for fashion / portrait photographs. I cannot recommend Casa Mia II and South Corsica highly enough.
