Make a holiday apartment in Sartene your home away from home

A large part of Corsica’s charm is its historic towns and villages where the buildings with their red-tile roofs seem to hang precariously onto the hilltops. Many of these towns have a maze of little alleys to explore and cobbled squares where you can sit back, relax and watch everyday village life go by. With a Sartène holiday apartment, you can be part of it all. Holiday accommodation in Sartène comes in a variety of sizes, from properties sleeping as few as two people to ones sleeping as many as fifteen. You can choose from budget to luxury accommodation, so you’ll be able to enjoy Corsican life no matter what your budget is. Most of the available rental properties have their own parking and modern conveniences like a washer and dryer. Some also have BBQ facilities and their own swimming pool. The high standard of holiday apartments in Sartene means that you can enjoy your time in Corsica without having to compromise on comfort.

Things to do

Sartène is located in the south-western part of Corsica and dates from medieval times. Built high on top of a hill, it overlooks a beautiful valley. Many of the historic buildings have remained and a stroll through the old part of town is like a journey back in time to the days when Sartène had to guard against attacks by pirates.

-The Museum of Prehistoric Corsica is in Sartene. Here you can find out more about the people who lived on the island long before the Genoese came: people like the Torre civilisation. You can also learn about the ancient taffoni burial chambers, where the dead were placed in natural openings in the area’s granite rock. The museum is a good place to start if you want to explore the prehistoric sites of the region.

-The Place de la Liberation is the ideal shady place to rest after a morning of exploring the town. This square is the heart of Sartène life, with a market and lined with many little shops and restaurants. Overlooking the square you’ll find the Church of Sainte Marie and the historic Town Hall.

-Easter weekend is an excellent time to book a Sartene holiday home. U Catenacciu takes place after sunset on Good Friday and marks the start of the celebrations. In a tradition that dates back some seven centuries, one townsperson is chosen to don a red hooded robe so that his or her identity is concealed. This person, known as the ‘Grand Penitent’, is shackled by the ankle and drags these chains across town while carrying a big, heavy wooden cross and is the focus of the Easter procession, which also includes penitents dressed in black. The procession begins and ends at the Church of Sainte Marie.

-Sartène’s wines are a particularly good choice. Most of the wines produced in the area are rosés but you’ll also find excellent reds and a small number of whites. Be sure to visit one or, even better, all of the local wineries to see and taste why oenophiles rave about the vintages that hail from Sartène.

-Propriano is only about 8.5 miles from Sartène and a great destination for a day’s outing to the beach. The beaches lining the Gulf of Valinco are sandy and white, with clear blue waters perfect for snorkelling and diving. Sailing and boat trips are popular activities too. Propriano is a relaxed port and there are many restaurants along the waterfront where you can have a leisurely lunch and watch the boats coming into or sailing out of the harbour.

The weather in Sartène

Sartène, like the rest of Corsica, has a Mediterranean climate with sunny summers and rainy, cool winters. Summer days can become very hot, with temperatures often soaring to around 31 °C, so you may want to opt for Sartène holiday accommodation equipped with air conditioning. Winters are cool, with maximum temperatures hovering around 14 °C but night-time temperatures dropping to around 5 °C. While there may be a little rain once in a while in summer, most of the rainfall in the area occurs in winter, especially from October to December.

Getting to Sartène

Getting to your holiday apartment in Sartène is very easy but it’s advisable to hire a car once you arrive in Corsica, since the public transport network isn’t very extensive. The nearest international airport to Sartène is Figari Sud-Corse Airport, a little over 27 miles to the south-east. In summer, Figari Sud-Corse Airport receives regular flights from various destinations all over Europe. Another easy option is to travel by ferry from Marseille to Propriano and then make the short journey to Sartène.

le calme!

4 of 5
nous avons bp aimé cette ancienne bergerie, pour son calme et sa simplicité. Le jacuzzi est top!! L'endroit est un peu éloigné mais par contre la vue est splendide. Le propriétaire est charmant et toujours prêt à donner des explications. Nous recommandons certainement cet endroit!

A nicely presented, comfortable property in a quiet, rural location.

5 of 5
The house is in a quiet rural location with a few other properties around, and was easy to find. The location was fine for exploring this part of Corsica, which is not very developed and very relaxing. There was more than enough room for the four of us. It was nicely presented, clean and comfortable. Bernadette and Christian were very welcoming. Their local knowledge of the best beaches was invaluable (these would have been hard to find otherwise), and gave good advice on what time of day to visit places like Bonifacio. The nearest supermarket (Spar) is about 20 minutes away, and is in a small town with a great pizzeria. With trips to Bonifacio, Sartene, and some super beaches we easily filled a week here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A perfect getaway - sea, views and tranquility

5 of 5
The house is perfectly situated, at the very top of Tizzano, looking down on the beautiful beach and across the bay. Very peaceful, as barely any passing traffic. The vast living/kitchen/dining room has beautiful views through every window. The house was spotlessly clean, and every bedroom looked fresh and welcoming. It is simply furnished, but provides everything you would need. The drive is very steep, and parking and driving up it was a bit intimidating at first, but you get used to it. Being at the very top of the hill, it's a steep walk down to the beach, but easily managed in 10 minutes, and quicker for fitter people! We managed with 3 ladies aged over 90! Tizzano itself provides everything you could need - a few excellent restaurants right on the beach, a couple of shops for all the basics, and a perfect, huge beach, with the whitest sand, and bluest sea. Being up high, it is quite exposed, so when it is windy, it is difficult to find a sheltered spot - but that's when the large amount of space inside, and the huge french windows are a particular asset. If it is very windy there are plenty of other more sheltered beaches to explore - we recommend Campomoro. Dealing with Francesca, and arranging the booking was so easy - she was so helpful, and accommodating. Paulina, the lovely lady who cleans the house, and welcomes you could not have been kinder or more helpful. All in all this was a hugely successful holiday, in a lovely house, in a perfect position.
