Nestled into the hills between Lumio village and the coast, lies Villa du Golfe. This villa is aimed very much at those who enjoy life’s luxuries. From the organic olive oil and rosé wine produced by the owner, to the concierge, daily cleaning, cook, massage and beauty therapies, everything has been designed to ensure you make the most of this very special place. Le Paradise – the Domaine’s own private motor yacht – is available as a skippered charter exclusively for guests.

The villa is very generously proportioned, with a vast living room opening onto an infinity pool, perfectly positioned to enjoy the outlook over the bay and the mountains beyond. This view is particularly magical at dusk, as the sun drops behind the rosy-gold peaks of the Balagne and the lights of Calvi announce that it’s time for a glass of something chilled and refreshing.

Villa du Golfe is one of three imposing properties at the Domaine Paradisu, a private four acre estate set in a 100-year-old olive grove with magnificent views of Calvi Bay and the citadel. Each house has its own swimming pool and grounds to ensure privacy for all guests.

Our choice of Corsican properties is as diverse as the island itself, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

With fishermen mending their nets by the harbour, Calvi’s maritime heritage remains intact. However, the town has gained a new lease of life in the cafés and bars along Quai Landry, linking the marina and the port, with stretches of beach beyond.

Inland, the unspoilt beauty of The Balagne tells a different story of mountain wildernesses and the island's unspoilt and uniquely fragrant maquis. Follow the Route des Artisans through terracotta-tiled hilltop villages, overlooking a landscape of forests and mountains, and you’ll also find that an excellent glass of local wine is never far away.

Choose a holiday in Calvi & The Balagne and one of our handpicked luxury villas or apartments will put you in the heart of this diversely beautiful destination.
