A historic city turned top summer destination

As the capital of Corsica, this charming port city is nestled into the island's rugged coast. Once known most famously as the birthplace of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, today, Ajaccio has turned its storied past into a major destination, complete with beachfront restaurants, plenty of boutique shopping, and winding, cobbled streets lined with colorful homes. There are also plenty of museums to explore, as well as historical sites and towering cathedrals. Choose an Ajaccio vacation rental with ocean views or its own private pool, and end each day feeling as relaxed as the Mediterranean will allow.

Consider Ajaccio your gateway to Corsica

With Ajaccio as your homebase, it's easy to explore Corsica. From exploring prehistoric archaelogical sites to lounging on stunning beaches to hiking in the Parc Naturel Regional de Corse, there's plenty to see and do outside of the city. But if you picked your Ajaccio vacation rental because you wanted to be in the heart of it all, then you're certainly in luck. In town, you can hop from restaurant to restaurant, or shop the local boutiques and markets in search of the perfect souvenirs, or ingredients for cooking up a fabulous French dinner at home.

From centuries-old citadels to iconic art collections

The heart of Ajaccio is the citadel, which dates back to the 16th century. From the center, you can easily visit Maison Bonaparte and the adjacent museum, as well as Place Marechal Foch, which is one of the main plazas in Ajaccio. Visit the Musee Fesch, which houses an impressive art collection, as well as the Cathedral, which dates from the same era as the citadel. Pick a historic Ajaccio vacation rental in the heart of the town, and experience the hustle and bustle of local life as you start each day.

Where the summer season is picture perfect

Ajaccio is a major destination for much of the year, thanks to its consistently mild, temperate climate. May is one of the best times to visit if cycling and hiking are your ideal hobbies, because the water is still just a bit too chilly to swim. June through September is the best for beach goers because the weather and water is warm enough for long and lazy beach days. November through early spring is a bit too chilly for beaching, but Ajaccio remains a stellar destination throughout the year if you prefer exploring markets and experiencing local life.

Stunning sunsets and craggy coastlines

Situated on the west coast of Corsica, the city's port faces the Gulf of Ajaccio and backs up to forest-covered mountains. The Parc Natural Regionel de Corse runs through the center of the island, making space for birdwatchers, hikers, and campers to explore as they please. Parts of the coastline are craggy and rocky, filled with caves and inlets perfect for docking your boat. But sunworshippers, don't worry—there are plenty of lovely sandy beaches, too. Find the best views facing west, and watch the sun set over this stunning island.
