  • Can't wait to go back!

    "My parents and I stayed 4 nights in this property, and we could have stayed forever! It was such an enchanting house, with the kind of charm we only dreamed of finding on our trip to Dijon. The weather was perfect, and we were able to enjoy dinner out on the patio dining table almost every night, as well as breakfast and coffee there each morning. The ambiance of the home, and the adjacent orchard, garden, vineyards, and yard was beyond our expectations. the photos do not do it justice. The house itself is well-equipped. The kitchen has nearly everything you could need, including cookware and some basic spices. The closets were stocked with insecticides (for which we were thankful in the summer!), basic cleaning supplies to keep the kitchen nice, and a lovely fan that came in handy at night. The beds are comfortable and the linens updated. The whole house was very clean and well-maintained, while retaining the perfect balance of updated features and the charm of another era. There were many books and interesting things in the home to give it charm and function, and Manfred provided many resources to help us in our travels, such as maps, books, and a booklet of local information. We were only three people staying in this large house, and would have been comfortable with 6 or more people. Since we had a rental car, the home was very convenient to drive to the market (5 min) or into town (10-15 min), but felt remote and quiet, just as we wanted. While the wifi did not work very well, we were able to connect periodically and check email, and it forced us to unplug and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings of the property. The laundry machine (combination wash/dry) was tricky to figure out, and takes quite a while to run, but was a lifesaver for our trip (and allowed us to pack lighter). Manfred was a perfect host, stopping by to offer tips periodically, and just a text message away for anything we needed. He is very friendly and kind, and was a great resource. The best part of the trip was the cherries coming off one tree in the orchard! We were able to pick and enjoy them the whole trip! Such a lovely (and delicious) surprise!) I hope very much that I am able to return to Dijon and stay in this property again."

  • The soundest sleep you can have in Paris!

    "What a delightful, spacious, charming apartment - we fell in love immediately. I particularly loved the timber beams in the ceiling and the curving lines of the staircase. It is very conveniently located between the Seine and the Blvd St Germain, right near a metro and almost opposite Notre Dame, and yet we slept like babies in the quiet bedroom with its very comfortable king mattress and its courtyard view. We felt very safe (key code entry and then two sets of keys to get into the apartment itself), and my husband's knees certainly appreciated the elevator to the 4th floor while my daughter and I raced up and down each day to see if we could beat him. Each morning we bought our croissants and pain au chocolats at the delicious patisserie on the corner, and we shopped at the street market that appeared 3 times a week (Tues, Thurs and Sat) and the convenient supermarkets. We valued the well-stocked compact kitchen for the chance to even eat in for dinner from time to time. Thank you to the delightful woman (shall not be named, per VRBO protocol) who greeted us on arrival and made us comfortable, with clear instructions and handled our occasional calls graciously and promptly -- we couldn't get the key to work in the door to exit (jet lag!!) and had to call, only to discover we were trying to exit the wrong door! She was very patient with us :) The washer-dryer were invaluable and we also appreciated the dishwasher. And the kindness of providing toilet paper, paper towel, laundry soap and cleaning supplies (I even did a small amount of housework as we were there for 13 nights!) My only recommendation to add to the wonderfully detailed instructions would be a clear list of what can and can't be recycled. I am an avid recycler (hate the thought of all those landfills with everlasting plastic bags) and it was never clear to me what I could put in which trash bin ... or even what to do with the glass wine bottles. We thank you for a terrific vacation and would stay at Notre Dame Bievre again in a heartbeat, if we get that lucky again!"

Corsica Travel Tips

French Charm at Corsica Vacation Rentals

If you have ever dreamed about the romance of the French Mediterranean lifestyle, then Corsica is the place where you can get to experience it. Beautiful old buildings, quaint towns and majestic views over the Mediterranean are all part of Corsica’s charm. It’s a place where you can relax and explore at your own pace. Having a vacation home is one of the best ways to do this. Choose from cozy beachfront villas or majestic stone mansions. Revel in ornate French décor and relax in beautifully manicured gardens that have views stretching to the horizon. Take a stroll down to the corner bakery for fresh baguettes and pick up some delicious cheeses and meats from the village deli. This is the lifestyle you can expect to experience in Corsica. Warm, relaxed and romantic will be the flavor of your vacation.

Historical Explorations near Corsica Accommodations

Corsica is perhaps most famous as being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. He was born in the capital city of Ajaccio and baptized in the beautiful renaissance cathedral there. If you visit the old town known as the Place Marchel Foch, you can stop in at Bonaparte’s birthplace and visit the Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Misericorde where the marble baptismal font still stands.

The island of Corsica is characterized by quaint towns with cobbled streets and beautiful old architecture. Each town has its own historic sites, interesting museums and local legends that makes for fascinating exploring. Food and drink are in true Mediterranean style a celebration of life. Enjoy delicious local cuisine at the many restaurants and street side cafés.

Life carries on here at a slow and leisurely pace as it has for many centuries. One of the best ways to explore the island is on a scooter or bicycle. In that way, you can easily hop from town to town and then explore the streets and attractions further by foot. There are many hiking trails on the island that offer magnificent views.

The island has a number of beautiful beaches that sun lovers flock to in the summertime. The three most famous beaches are Palombaggia Beach and Saint Giulia Beach, both of which are located near the town of Porto Vecchio in the south, and Calvi Beach which runs for several kilometers north up the coast from the town of Calvi. This beach is most popular with families as it has a safe swimming area and there are loads of snack bars along the beachfront.

Traveling to Corsica Villas

There are four airports in total on Corsica. The two major airports are Aeroport de Ajaccio Campo Dell’Oro and Aeroport de Bastia-Poretta. They are more commonly known as Ajaccio and Bastia Airports due to their proximity to these two towns. Most international visitors will route via one of the major airport hubs in Europe and then on to Corsica. Most major European carriers fly into either one of these two airports. The two smaller airports host regional airlines and charter flights. In the summertime, ferries operate from France, Italy and the nearby island of Sardinia to Corsica.

Best Time of Year to Travel to Corsica

Located in the Mediterranean, Corsica has a mild temperate climate. Winters can be stormy and cool and the preferred season to visit is therefore the summer. The days start to warm from April and by July and August, the summer nights are hot and balmy. Peak season is during the European summer vacation period of July and August, during which the island can get a bit crowded. But this all adds to Corsica’s charm and vibrant atmosphere.
