Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
This magnificent luxury villa in Corsica overlooks Palombaggia beach, close to the trendy town of Porto Vecchio, and sits on a quiet hillside, surrounded by stunning scenery and unrivalled sea views . This luxury villa sleeps up to ten guests in five en-suite bedrooms, finished to the highest standards and offering five star facilities including a heated outdoor swimming pool, modern gymnasium, cinema room and two hot tubs. There is an outdoor activity area in the shade of centuries old olive trees, which includes children's play area, boules pitch and bar.
The vast living spaces are refreshingly modern and offer a wonderful lounge area with a full entertainment system and a superbly equipped modern kitchen and dining area, perfect for family and friends to gather in. A fabulous collection of paintings and vintage model aeroplanes and boats just ooze class and charm throughout the property.
The large outdoor pool with stunning views creates a real 'wow' factor. Carefully designed to work within the natural surroundings and complete with comfortable loungers it may well be as far as you wish to ever travel from the villa! However, should a day soaking up the endless Corsican sunshine at the beach be what you are looking for, just a short walk from the villa is one of Europe's most secluded and stunning beaches; 'Palombaggia'. Recently named by The Sunday Times as one of the Top 10 beaches in Europe, the beach is praised for its clear turquoise waters and outstanding scenery.
If staying in shape is important to you whilst away, then enjoy a work out in the villa's fully air-conditioned gymnasium. Or for a less strenuous way to while away the time, watch a movie in the cinema room complete with a DVD library, or sit back and enjoy a glass of fizz in one of the villa's hot tubs.
Each bedroom is equipped with a plasma television, DVD player and iPod docking station and the villa benefits from Wi-Fi throughout. Finishing touches to the bedrooms include luxurious crisp white linens, fluffy towels, bathrobes and L'Occitane bath products.

The Corsica region
There is plenty to do in Porto-Vecchio and the surrounding area, so if you are looking to venture o? or ?nd something to do on the beach there is plenty of choice.
On the beach you can hire speed boats, jets skis (starting at 50 Euro for 15 mins) as well as go scuba diving or snorkling. If you enjoy sailing, we can arrange for you to do a boat trip, or even have sailing lessons if you wish. Bonifacio is an excellent place to take a boat trip as you can sail out to see the beautiful coast and crystal turquoise waters. You can also hire canoes, surf boards, wind surf and do kite sailing down on the beach.
There are several companies that o?er horse riding, early morning canters along the beach, even swimming with the horses in the sea, or going for a leisurely stroll in the evening.
If you are more action packed, you can do a range of activities at Ospedale Forest, including canyoning, tree top adventuring, mountain biking, quad biking, or just take a walk through the forest and enjoy the nature. There is a 90 minute hike to an impressive 60m waterfall, Piscia di Gallo, which starts about 1km from the Ospedale Barrage, a man made reservoir, supplying Porto-Vecchio with water.
Ribs, speedboats, sailing yachts, fishing trips and helicopter rides
Numerous companies offering a variety of sizes of boats to hire including skippered and bare-boat charter (depending on level of competency and qualifications) to explore the stunning archipelago of Cerbicale, the attractive uninhabited small islands off the Gulf of Porto Vecchio or even venture across the waters to Northern Sardinia! Also fishing trips can be arranged from the marina. Scenic helicopter rides can also be organised from Porto Vecchio.
There are several companies that offer horse riding near to Palombaggia. Early morning canters along the beach, swimming with the horses in the sea, a leisurely stroll in the evening in the eucalyptus and pine forests or a more challenging hack into the mountains. These can typically arranged during your stay. Private or group horse riding lessons can also be arranged, although group lessons, particularly for children, are best booked prior to your arrival.
A beautifully scenic mountainous area to the north of Porto Vecchio, with stunning views over Porto Vecchio, the valley and the Gulf. Offering canyoning, tree top adventuring (featuring high rope courses, zip wires, tree-walking and hiking, with 3 different levels of difficulty starting with children over the age of 3), mountain biking and quad biking for the more adventurous! Or just take a walk through the forest or alongside the vast mountain lake of the Barrage de L'Ospedale and take in the wonderful views and enjoy the nature. There is also a more challenging 90 minute hike to an impressive 60 meter waterfall, Piscia di Gallo. Allow 50 minutes to driving time from the villa.
Spérone Golf Course
Try a round of golf at the magnificent Spérone Golf Course, about an hours drive from the villa. Designed by the great Robert Trent Jones Senior, he described the 12th tee as the most beautiful in the world and the 16th hole has a nautical challenge not to be missed. The course is often referred to as the 'Pebble Beach of Europe' and is a test for the best. Those that play this course will have one of the most unforgettable experiences of their golfing lives!
Cliff-top Walk & Marine Cemetery – Bonifacio
Witness superb views from the cliff top walk. Steps from the old town lead down to a tiny beach from where you can start the walk and visit the marine cemetery at the end – People often visit the cemetery to take in its extraordinarily elaborate mausoleums. Also a good spot for a quick swim to cool off and witness
the outstanding white cliffs and rock formations
from the urquoise blue sea.
