Make a villa in Porto-Vecchio your home away from home

HomeAway's villas in Porto-Vecchio put visitors right in the middle of possibly the most sought-after destination on Corsica. Porto-Vecchio is in the south of the island, on the eastern coast of the rolling agricultural hills that supply almost all of Corsica with its produce. For visitors at Porto-Vecchio accommodation, these hills serve as pretty preludes to the alpine highlands a short drive away, which open up an entirely different range of excursions and activities to the usual coastal fare. Holiday rentals in Porto-Vecchio are great as a base for a beach break on any one of the many superb examples close to the town, as well as for exploring ancient ruins in the hills and the historic old town.

Despite the proximity of the coast to Porto-Vecchio holiday rentals, many have access to a pool and BBQ area, which is perhaps understandable when the closest beaches get so busy in the height of the season. Many are also convenient for golf, tennis, hiking and fishing. Most come with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. However, compared to the rest of the south of France, Corsica is decidedly rustic, so many Porto-Vecchio apartments are unsuitable for wheelchairs.

Things to do

Beaches: There are a host of beaches to choose from around Porto-Vecchio. The most popular is the beautiful Palombaggia Beach a couple of miles to the southeast, where HomeAway also has holiday homes available. There are additional rental options at the equally gorgeous Pinarellu Beach, about seven miles north.

Nightlife: While not quite as brash as the French mainland coast, Porto-Vecchio nightlife is plentiful and varied. There are dozens of bars to choose from in the old town, as well as some great restaurants and enough nightclubs to satisfy the hardest partiers. There's also a casino for those who can't resist a flutter.

Outdoor pursuits: With the pervasion of beaches and marinas, there are a multitude of activities to keep watersport enthusiasts entertained. Of course, the town itself is a wonder to walk around, with its imposing citadel and twisting streets. The nearby mountains offer more robust activities, such as hiking, climbing, mountain biking, horse trekking, and even skiing in the winter.

Shopping: Porto-Vecchio has some of the best shopping on Corsica, chiefly to cater to the international sailing set. While there's the usual souvenir shops, there are also fine fashion boutiques and artisanal food stores to browse. Local specialties include the charcuterie, olive oil, wine, and honey.

Culture: For the historically and prehistorically inclined, the town is surrounded by Bronze Age and Roman ruins, which provide a fascinating glimpse into past cultures. For a more medieval perspective, there's the old town and citadel, now a museum. Art lovers can get their fix at several galleries, and there's also a popular outdoor summer cinema just outside town.

Weather in Porto-Vecchio

The Mediterranean climate consists of long, hot summers and mild winters. Corsica, being an island, experiences a moderating effect from the sea, which means temperatures rarely hit the highs they do on the mainland. Summer days typically max out at 28°C, with winter highs in the mid-teens. Most of the rainfall occurs during October and November.

Travel to Porto-Vecchio

The two airports on Corsica dealing with direct flights from the UK are Bastia and Ajaccio, at 78 and 85 miles distant respectively. A much closer option for non-direct flights is Figari Airport at 16 miles away, which needs to be linked to via a mainland Europe hub. It should be noted that many of the roads in Corsica are fairly rudimentary and mountainous. The roads to Figari are decent by comparison. Another alternative is to take the ferry from Marseille.

The villa is sure to impress you with a welcoming swimming pool and a nice garden.. The rooms are spacious and well furnished…What I really loved is the quality of equipment provided for visitors as we often end up in villas with cheap furnishing..They have taken care to give the best quality equipment and furnishing to the residents.. Tailor made for vacationers with games..Poker etc…A nice barbecue in the balcony..We had to be really motivated to get out and visit the places around Corsica.. I also would emphasis on the warm welcome given by the host (Marie) and her spouse who were accommodating to our delayed arrival. They invested in time to help with a house tour and suggestions to travel around.. A place I would recommend to anyone visiting Corsica…Your vacation would be truly enhanced in a stay at a home like this! :)

Ideal for a couple and if you enjoy watching the world go by from a bird's eye view (4th floor). The cleaning charge ensures that you'll have no work at the start or finish of your holiday. We found the apartment comfortable and handy for restaurants and boulangerie/supermarket in the marina area - and only a (steep!) 10 minute walk to the lovely old town. The wifi and TV worked well (if you can be dragged away from the balcony!). Marta is a caring host who will happily provide all local information. I also had wonderful reflexology from Valérie Valli.
