When we began working with beautiful A Sulana 22 years ago, villas with a private pool were almost unheard of on Corsica, and we had to operate a wait-list system up to a year or more in advance! Nowadays pools are more commonplace, but the appeal of our flagship property remains as strong as ever, and many guests return year after year.
With generous curves and fluid lines inspired by the almost-circular bay of Rondinara which it overlooks, A Sulana has magnificent views from virtually every room. The interiors are cool, inviting and absolutely immaculate, just like the superb gardens and terraces which surround the house. The private pool is gated for safety and heated for comfort in early and late season, which is a particular benefit for those with younger children. An added bonus is a small open-plan guest cottage suitable for grandparents, older children or a nanny.
Rondinara Beach, just 10 minutes’ drive away, is equally child-friendly, with calm waters and gently shelving sand ideal for that inaugural paddle. The glorious terrace is tailor-made for long lunches and lazy summer evenings, but for the times when even a barbecue seems like too much work, there are several restaurants within a 5-15 minute drive, depending on the season.
The vibrant harbour towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, plus many of the superlative beaches for which Corsica is so famous, are all within a 15-30 minute drive.
