  • Lovely little quiet apartment with beautiful views

    "My husband and I had a week here at the beginning of August 2014. We came to love the quiet of the location and sitting on the small balcony late in the day to see the fantastic views. It definitely had everything we needed and a great kitchen for cooking. It is only small and although suitable for a couple I felt would be too small if you had anyone sleeping in the lounge area. The balcony is also only tiny and really only enough room for 2 people. However given that August is the busiest month at Cassis we really appreciated being away from the main harbour and we also had wonderful afternoon breezes which you wouldn't have got downtown. A note also that the shower is a little awkward as you have to step up into it and would be difficult for anyone not fit or of a bigger build. All in all a great stay and we would be happy to recommend to others. There is parking at the back of the building but its at a premium in August and we had to do a bit of car shuffling a number of times to get a park as soon as someone moved. Be prepared to walk in Cassis and although its not far you do have an uphill walk from the beach and the restaurants back to the apartment."

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.
