Make a holiday villa in Porticcio your home away from home

HomeAway's holiday rentals in Porticcio are sited directly across the bay from the pretty villas in Ajaccio, one of the busiest ports and tourist destinations on Corsica. Porticcio accommodation is therefore perfectly situated for the beaches on this side of the bay, as well as access to Ajaccio Airport and the facilities of the town beyond. Like most Corsica accommodation, a stay in Porticcio offers a unique combination of mountain and coast, so there's a host of activities to fill up a holiday roster, from mountain-climbing, hiking, biking and horse trekking, to water-skiing, sailing and scuba diving. There's even skiing in the winter. For culture, there's Ajaccio's citadel (unfortunately not open to the public) and various museums, one of which, of course, is Napoleon Bonaparte's birthplace.

Despite their proximity to the sea, a surprising number of Porticcio villas include a pool, which could be thought of as surplus to requirement. Apartments in Porticcio typically come with modern conveniences such as fully equipped kitchens and BBQ areas, laundry facilities, and access to tennis courts and a golf course. As is common in Corsica, wheelchair accessibility is limited.

Things to do

Beaches: Porticcio self catering have probably more choice for beaches than anywhere else on Corsica, with over 20 in the immediate vicinity, breaking up the rocky coastline. Due to this area's popularity, however, these beaches can fill up quickly in high season, so having a hire car can be a definite advantage to get to more secluded spots.

Nightlife: Porticcio has a smattering of bars and restaurants, all pretty laid back and informal. For a more raucous time, Ajaccio has a broader selection of evening entertainments including a casino, but remains quite refined compared to more downmarket resorts on the mainland coast.

Outdoor pursuits: It's almost impossible to run out of things to do in Porticcio. Tennis and golf are available, and the beach, of course, with all the attendant watersports. But for a truly spectacular time, hiking in the Corsican mountains is an absolute must. 45 of these craggy peaks top 2,000m, well on their way to rivalling the Alps.

Shopping: For shopping on Corsica, Ajaccio is second to none. The international sailing set congregate here during the summer, and demand a high standard, especially from the clothing boutiques and food stores. Ajaccio has one of the best food markets in Corsica.

Culture: The cathedral in Ajaccio is a big draw for tourists (primarily because it contains Napoleon's baptismal font), as is the citadel, which is sadly off limits to the public. Napoleon's birth home is now a museum, and there are also other museums dedicated to the tumultuous history of Corsica and art.

Weather in Porticcio

With average annual daily sunshine of 7.5 hours, it's no wonder Porticcio is a popular holiday destination. Summers are long and hot, winters mild and short. High temperatures in the summer typically max out at around 28°C, while the average highs in the winter hit the mid-teens. Precipitation is sparse, and falls mainly in the autumn and early winter.

Travel to Porticcio

Porticcio is located just to the south of Ajaccio Airport, which does have direct links to the UK via EasyJet. For a bigger direct flight selection, one has to look to Bastia Airport in the north, about 90 miles away. For non-direct flights, Figari Airport at 70 miles away is the closest alternative. Of course, ferries can be caught from the French mainland, so flying into Nice or Marseille and hiring a car there is perfectly doable, with the ferries conveniently docking at Ajaccio.

Getting there was painfree as Adjaccio airport is 15 mins away - we were met by Brigette (housekeeper for Jane). Her advice & recommendations throughout our stay were also really helpful especially when hiring a car. The town had everything in terms of food, iea lovely fruit & veg shop and places to buy fresh bread, meat and fish as well as the large supermarket (Carrefour). We tried two local restaurants which were good and also went for lunch down the road at Le (very nice indeed). The villa itself has substantial sea and mountain views. It is close to the town - within a few minutes walk. It is in a secure gated area with a code. There is no shortage of places to sit inside and out and plenty of room to spreadout. The top iron table is lovely for meals in the evening. Near the pool is a shaded seated area where we spent most of our time. The pool area is superb and has lovely tiling - it is heated to >30 degrees with a jacuzzi end and there were pool toys and inflatables although we took our own. There is very little maintenance besides shutting the pool cover at night which is a safety/legal requirement. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of plates and cooking dishes, pans etc. The welcome pack of tea milk eggs etc was very useful. The main living room is vast and has plenty of space to sit and a tv area with lots of DVDs for every taste. There is also a bookshelf with an interesting selection of novels and books on Corsica and plenty of local maps too. Each bedroom is tasefully decorated and most have en suites. The master bedroom has a large wetroom with bath and shower. Towels are good quality, the showers are superb. Hot water is always available. In the garage are some bikes which are available for use but we didn't get chance. We didn't need to use the washer either but it is in there. Corsica is a lovely place to visit with hot temperatures on the coast and snow on the mountains. We enjoyed temperatures of mid to high 20s at the end of May, early June. (NB most people only speak French). We wanted to get up in the mountains and see more of the coast north (Iles de Sanguines) & south so we hired a car which worked out well. It is well worth going up into the hills & we went to the Cascades des Anglais on the GR20. We also called into the Tortoise Sanctuary on the way back and we had our own tortoise that wandered into the garden.

Prior to our holiday we were sent a well prepared and informative guide by the owner giving clear travel and arrival instructions with local recommendations for restaurants, shopping and beaches. The Villa was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with appliances and essential goods. The Villa is in an ideal location for exploring the SE corner of the Island which has superb beaches and restaurants some of which are within walking distance. There are views over the bay from the two bedroom balconies and from the larger terrace outside the lounge, a lovely place to dine in the evenings. The use of a car is more or less essential however you can visit the central spine of mountains by train where there are some wonderful walks. Altogether, a very enjoyable holiday.
