About this location
The Corsica region
The French call Corsica "The Island of Beauty" and there are plenty of reasons for that.It has hundreds of sandy beaches and coves some of them only reachable by boat,a stunning chain of mountains with snow covered peaks,cascading freshwater streams and ancient villages of breathtaking beauty.This Mediterranean paradise island also offers a unique blend of cultures that are as much influenced by Italy as they are by France.
The villa is located in one of the very best spot of the bay of Ajaccio with breathtaking views of the sea and of all the major peaks of the Corsican mountains.One can walk or jog from the house to the sea or to the fragrant "maquis" covered hills surrounding the area.Beaches and restaurants are also minutes away by car.

"Magical, best house I have ever rented"
The house is on a hillside on two levels : living/dining/kitchen, master suite, deck on the upper, three ensuite sea-view bedrooms below opening onto the garden / pool area.(Fifth bedroom has only a small window.) Upon retiring, we could lie in bed with the sliding doors open to the fresh night air, watching the twinkling necklace of lights across the bay. The house is in a neighborhood of houses but feels very private. The only contiguous lot is far below. There are electric shutters, awnings, and pool cover for comfort and ease. House keys have remote control for entry walk lights. Many spots to congregate or slip off alone to nap or read, included a shaded hammock and conversation area up in the rock garden and a table for 12 with outdoor grill at the pool (secondary kitchen nearby). Four cars can be parked on site .
The garden is exquisite. Hydrangeas are all over , with rose, lavender and blue blossoms on the same bush. each corner of the house was covered with a different flowering vine. The dining room captures a stunning view of the hillside rock garden of natural boulders, trees with driftwood -like trunks and hydrangeas. A fountain with running water. Master bath has a very large window with a beautiful view of the path to the back gate. Entire garden is lighted at night. It is clear that a perfectionist oversees it all.
Appointed with antiques, the house is also very thoughtfully equipped with quality bed, bath and beach linens and china and cookware. Computer, Internet access and TV/DVD equipment are good.
The owners made sure we knew where to shop and get gas , how to operate everything. They were available by phone for any problem. In making the business arrangement, they were responsive and clear, documenting everything but simply. A total pleasure to deal with.
Five minutes down an oleander-lined street and path , we swam off the rocks in the crystal-clear, turquoise /indigo Mediterranean. We could seek out the old towns in the mountains, the sixteenth century Genoese watch towers on each promontory, ancient archeological sites and beautiful hiking trails. Coast or inland, the views are extraordinary with every turn in the road. Unspoiled by development. The owners provided a book detailing restaurant , shopping , transportation and sporting options. We needed a doctor for a sprained ankle and the book told us exactly whom to call.
Not an investment or vacation property, the house is a lived-in, cherished and personal home
