Make an apartment in Propriano your home away from home

Nowhere really typifies Corsica's unique blend of mountainous terrain and amazing beaches than holiday rentals and villas in Propriano. This small but busy port on the west coast of Corsica has all the benefits of a seaside town, but positions visitors beautifully for the peaceful splendour of the mountains and a coast strewn with sandy beaches. Centred on the port and marina, accommodation in Propriano is also a great jumping-off point for watersports, as well as for hiking, mountain biking, horse trekking and canyoning in the mountainous hinterland. Skiing is also possible during the winter. Many of the surrounding hillside villages offer superb views, and are a great place to relax in a patio restaurant or bar. The mountain village of Sartene, with its intriguing history and architecture, is only five miles away.

Villas in Propriano tends to be fairly basic by northwestern European standards, though they are typically equipped with laundry facilities and a dishwasher. Almost half have air-conditioning and/or internet access; the former isn't usually required apart from on the very hottest summer days. Unfortunately very few are wheelchair accessible, due to their rural nature.

Things to do

Beaches: Propriano self-catering are blessed with some of the best sandy beaches in the Med. There are two on the seafront of the small town itself, and more than a dozen within easy driving distance throughout the Gulf of Valinco. The southern terminus, the Capo di Campomoro, is crowned by a commanding Genoese Tower.

Nightlife: The marina seafront abounds with restaurants and bars, as one might expect from such a popular tourist destination. The vibe tends to be casual and laid back, focussing on drinks and food after a day at the beach or in the mountains, rather than dancing until dawn.

Outdoor pursuits: For the active tourist, The Gulf of Valinco is a prime destination. The mountains provide rugged beauty for the adventurous to explore, while the marina and beaches can cater to any hankering for watersports imaginable. Hiking is particularly popular.

Shopping: Aside from the usual seaside souvenir and beach shops, Propriano has a daily indoor market for locally grown fruit and vegetables. For more eclectic and boutique shopping, Ajaccio is worth a visit about 40 miles away, which has arguably the best shopping on Corsica. HomeAway also has luxury holiday accommodation available in Ajaccio.

Culture: Nearby Sartene is renowned for its architecture and views, and also for the community of painters and photographers it inspires. Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleon about 40 miles to the north, has a 15th-century citadel and cathedral, the latter containing the famous leader's baptismal font. There are also several museums to explore.

Weather in Propriano

The Mediterranean climate is characterised by protracted summers and truncated winters. Average high temperatures in the summer are around 28-29°C, while high temps in the winter rarely dip below the teens. Rainfall is sparse and infrequent, but concentrates mainly during the autumn.

Travel to Propriano

Ajaccio has its own international airport about 40 miles away, where EasyJet operates directly to and from the UK. More direct flight options are available from Bastia Airport, 100 miles to the north. Ajaccio also receives ferries from Marseilles, Toulon, and Nice, so a flight into Nice's major airport could be a more convenient option. For non-direct flights, Figari Airport is 34 miles away. Visitors can consider HomeAway holiday homes in Figari if they want something more convenient for this airport.

                                                                                                      My husband and I stayed for a week in this lovely apartment, and would gladly recommend it to others. The apartment was very clean, well decorated, and had plenty of space. The two bedrooms, which were at the back of the building, were quiet. The kitchen/diner had a balcony overlooking the lively main street and harbour area; we spent many a happy hour ‘people watching’ while we enjoyed our evening meals alfresco. There were plenty of local shops and restaurants, so you could manage here without a car but we chose to hire one. There was a parking space for us at the back of the building, with a short walk (100 metres?) around to the front door entrance. We found several lovely local beaches and enjoyed trips out into the hills, and down to the south coast too. It is quite a good location for exploring the mid and southern parts of the island, but be aware that the roads tend to be slow; there are no dual-carriageways. We couldn't have asked for nicer ‘hosts’; Santa was fantastic, as were the very friendly English-speaking staff in the associated restaurant. Although Santa’s English and my French could both be better, we communicated very easily when we arrived and departed. Written communications during the booking process were made earlier with the help of Google Translate. Santa lives in the same building (on a higher floor), so if you had any difficulties she would be nearby to help you. Basic provisions were available for us: oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, cleaning products, dishwasher tablets etc. And, on arrival, Santa also gave us a little gift of tasty treats, which were very welcome especially after a long journey. All in all, highly recommended. Santa, Thank you very much for our stay and for looking after us so well. We hope to visit you again some time in the future. Kind regards, Julia & Steve
