Make a holiday villa in Sollacaro your home away from home

Sollacaro is a beautiful village in Corsica. It sits 450m high on a hillside in the Taravo Valley and has prehistoric roots. It is a delightful rural community that once had a population of more than 1500 but today, the village is only home to 350 people. HomeAway offers a selection of holiday villas in Sollacaro for tranquil stays in the countryside but with easy access to larger towns and the attractions of the region. All holiday villas in Sollacaro are well maintained and equipped for a comfortable stay; choose from cottages with a mountain view or an apartment in town overlooking the square.

Things to do

Sollacaro is a great base from which to visit some of the most beautiful places in Corsica. Although seemingly remote in the mountains, there are good road links and having a hire car is essential to get to the capital Ajaccio which is about 25kms away from holiday homes in Sollacaro and to the beaches of the west and southern coasts of the island.

-Sightseeing and exploring the village is a pleasant way to spend a few hours. Not only the views spectacular, but you can follow in the footsteps of writer Alexander Dumas who lived here for a while and may well have taken a cooling drink from the large fountain which is one of the main features of Sollacaro.

-Filitosa is of interest to anyone who loves historical sights. Discovered back in 1946, Filitosa is an archaeological site of some significance in Corsica where Neolithic and prehistoric remains have been found. Removed from their original location to a setting just past an olive grove, the sculptures and Menhirs (human representations) are a stirring sight. There are remains of houses on site and also a small, but fascinating museum.

-Ajaccio is the capital of Corsica and a popular trip for visitors in Sollacaro holiday homes. This port city is about an hour’s drive away and has plenty to see and do. The most important attractions relate to Napoleon Bonaparte including various monuments and his former home which is now a museum. As the capital and an antique town, the sightseeing is terrific and there’s plenty of cultural pursuits as well as great shopping and dining options.

-The beaches are a short drive away and are spectacular. Corsica has some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean, and from Sollacaro you can head due west or south west to find superb stretches of sand and clear waters.

-Outdoor activities are popular and there is a wide range of activities for people of all different abilities. Whether it is sport on the water such as kayaking or rafting, or land based ones such as mountain biking and canyoning the gorgeous countryside around Sollacaro just begs to be explored and enjoyed.

The Weather in Sollacaro

The weather will be nice and hot throughout the summer months with April to October being the sunniest. By spring it can become cold in comparison but still between 17°C and 24°C .

Getting to Sollacaro

The easiest journey to holiday homes in Sollacaro is a flight into Ajaccio which is served by a number of UK airports. A hire car is essential due to the location of the village. It is possible to take a driving holiday all the way to Sollacaro with a regular ferry service to Ajaccio from Marseille, Nice and Toulon.

Great property, not much happening in the area around it

4 of 5
The house: A really great place to stay. We were a family of four and the size was right for us. I think with more, especially 6 adults, it would feel cramped. The kitchen was fully tooled with all we needed, and as we ate outside on the terrace mot of the time we never really needed to use the living/dining area inside. Both bedrooms upstairs were good-sized, plenty of storage space for clothes and empty cases. The separate toilet and bathroom were also more than fine for us. The only downside was, with temperatures over 30 degrees each day, the house heated up to the point of almost being unbearable in the evenings. Yes, you can open the windows to let the cooler evening air flow through, but then you also invite the mosquitos in...of which there were plenty. So, be sure to bring anti-mosquito spray. Overall, a really great house. I would recommend to the owners to either install some air conditioning units or put anti-mosquito nets over the bedroom windows. The location: Verghia is a small place. Really small. The little beach at the bottom of the hill from the house is great - it's not a 'sandy' beach but it's not pebbles either, I would describe it as either really big grains of sand or really small tones!! It is within walking distance from the house, but I would recommend driving if you have children or are fearful of the wild driving of the locals! But there really isn't much there apart from a pizza place (pretty good) and the Le Roc 72 bar/restaurant (overpriced - 22 euro for a burger?!). The nearest supermarket is a Spar on the way to Porticcio at Agosta Plage. If you take the house, definitely hire a car as you'll need to drive elsewhere to find more signs of life. Porticcio (15 minutes) has a strip of beachfront restaurants and bars, or there's Ajaccio (30-40 minutes) which has loads more to offer. Overall: We will definitely go back to Corsica, and even to that area - as we really liked Ajaccio and also the places further south (Propriano, Tizzano, Bonifacio, Campomoro, etc.) - but we probably wouldn't stay in Verghia again!

Superb in every way

5 of 5
The villa is beautiful, spacious, perfectly maintained, very well equipped including everything we needed for our 15 months old grandaughter and is in a scenic and quiet location. The owners made our stay wonderful in every way with their helpfulness and generosity. The small town of Olmeto has everything you need, including a really good bakery, grocers, bars, and several excellent restaurants - and all you do is walk down the (admittedly steep!) steps at the side of the villa! Perhaps the very best thing of all is the view with mountains and the sparkling bay of Propriano. Sitting on the terrace in the evening with a glass of wine watching the colours change as the sunsets and then, as darkness falls, the lights come on all around and reflect in the bay - totally magical! If you like walking, Olmeto is on the GR20 and the walk to Porto Pollo has breathtaking views. The proprietors are keen walkers and can provide information (and act as guides if you want!) for many walks along the coast or into the hills and mountains to suit whatever walking you like from very gentle to challenging mountain hikes I highly recommend this villa
