Make a villa in Pinarellu your home away from home

It's quite obvious why this residential settlement sprang up: to make sure the residents get first dibs on a prime stretch of shore every morning. Pinarellu apartments and villas are perfectly positioned to access these white sands, voted by the Times as one of Europe's top 20 beaches. That said, the proximity of Sainte-Lucie de Porto-Vecchio to holiday rentals in Punarellu, about two miles away, ensures a beach holiday is perfectly supplemented with supplies for self-catering – or restaurants for those less inclined to do their own cooking. The buzzing nightlife which characterises Porto-Vecchio, about seven miles to the south, is also a selling point, but this is far from a party town. There's an impressive list of ruins to explore, dating back to the Bronze Age, and the citadel and old town are great places to while away a few wondrous hours.

Villas in Pinarellu are a fairly recent development, so there are typically more modern appliances than elsewhere on the island. Most Pinarellu accommodation is equipped with a full kitchen and laundry room, and comes with internet access and satellite TV. Unfortunately, many self catering in Punarellu are not yet equipped to deal with wheelchairs, but a select few are available.

Things to do

Beaches: Pinarellu Beach is the focus of a holiday here. And it's a good one, with snow-white sands and azure waters, watched over by a medieval Genoese Watchtower, and backed by the shade of pine groves. It does get busy during the summer, but driving the back roads can get guests to more secluded spots further from the main access points.

Nightlife: There are a few restaurants and bars in Pinarellu which are great for a relaxing drink or bite by the sea. However, for a real knees-up, the drive needs to be made into Porto-Vecchio, which has a much more lively scene, and dozens of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to choose from. If guests would like to be closer to the action, HomeAway also offers Porto-Vecchio accommodation.

Outdoor pursuits: Corsica's unique combination of high mountains and coast means there's plenty to do. Hiking, biking and horse trekking are obvious choices for the hundreds of miles of incredibly scenic trails criss-crossing the island. With the coast, there are a host of watersports, with sailing, fishing and scuba diving being particularly popular.

Shopping: Porto-Vecchio has probably the best shopping on the island, and is only a short 12-mile trip from Pinarellu, with regular buses linking the two. Souvenir shops abound, but there are also some great fashion boutiques, and local specialties such as the charcuterie, olive oil, wine and honey to indulge in. Nearby Sainte-Lucie de Porto-Vecchio, where HomeAway also offers a range of holiday homes, should cover guests' grocery needs.

Culture: There's a guided tour around the citadel of Porto-Vecchio, which is now a museum, and the old town is great to explore for the architecture and galleries. The road between Porto-Vecchio and Pinarellu passes an open-air cinema, A Ruscana, which shows recent releases in the evenings during the summer.

Weather in Pinarellu

Pinarellu boasts perfect beach weather: not too hot in the height of summer, and a long season from April to October. Temperatures rarely top 30°C, and rainfall is negligible during the summer, with most precipitation falling in October and November. Winter high temperatures hardly ever see single digits, and top out in the high-teens.

Travel to Pinarellu

There are four airports on Corsica, with only two linking directly to the UK: Bastia and Ajaccio, around 83 and 90 miles away respectively. This doesn't seem far, but these are small roads. Better bets are Figari or Solonzara airports, around 28 and 22 miles distant respectively, but these require connecting flights through a mainland Europe hub. Another alternative is to fly to Marseille, hire a car and take the ferry to Porto-Vecchio, which increases flight options dramatically.

Good property with everything you need

4 of 5
Good location 5-10mins walk downhill to the 2 quiet resort beaches with white sand and shallow warm water ideal for families. Around 50m from the local shop. The accommodation is good with air conditioning, powerful shower, bbq and everything else you need. The front bedroom has lovely sea views. The pool is the warmest we've used. The stairs in the property are quite steep so families with young children need to be careful, but there is a stairgate at the top of the stairs. Danielle was a fantastic host, kind, helpful and made some good suggestions including the short drive to the natural river pools for swimming. Thanks.

A beautiful, peaceful place to stay

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. We were staying as a family of four with a five year old and a one and a half year old. I chose the villa as we wanted a toddler friendly environment with plenty of room to be comfortable in as we knew we would be spending quite a bit of time there and it didn’t disappoint. The living room is a very generous sized open plan space and it, along with both bedrooms, open on to the patio with a great view towards the beach and out to sea. We really enjoyed eating breakfast and lunch there whilst looking out on boats as well as seeing lots of wildlife including many different birds and even a couple of tortoises wandering through the garden. All the facilities worked well in the villa. We used the dishwasher and washing machine quite a bit and we also used the WiFi which worked well. The location of the villa is a massive plus point. It is just a minute’s walk to the beach or the boulangerie and selection of restaurants. Despite this, it was incredibly peaceful and quiet with no night-time noise. Although the village has a number of tourist residences, it doesn't feel over developed. The beaches in the bay of Pinarello are all really lovely. The one in front of the villa is deep and long - good for sandcastle building. Around the corner in front of the hotel and restaurants there is almost no breeze or waves - perfect for paddling and exploring the rock pools. Both beaches have lovely soft sand and a very shallow shelf, so are perfect for young children. A cold bottle of Corsican rose awaited us on arrival which was a really nice touch - although a couple of spare toilet rolls would have been handy! (This was easily solved with a trip to the local Spar supermarket in Saint Lucie though.) In conclusion, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely rebook in the future.
