  • Stylish contemporary villa
  • Pool heating available
  • Short walk to beach
  • 20min drive to Bonifacio

Set in fashionable Pianottoli, this impressive single storey villa combines cool, contemporary interiors with generous outdoor space, just a short walk from the beaches on Corsica’s spectacular south west coast. Inside, the high-spec kitchen, fresh décor and attractive lighting enhance the feeling of light and space in the comfortable open-plan living area, whilst four airy en-suite bedrooms and a fifth in the annexe make the house perfectly suited to accommodate two families or a group of friends looking for easy beach access and hotel-style chic.

Indoor/outdoor living is easy here, thanks to the sliding doors leading out onto the veranda and a larger-than-average deck, with a number of appealing options for sitting, lounging and alfresco dining. Lazy days by the heated pool are a joy and those who appreciate life’s gentler pursuits can enjoy a game of boules on the private pitch in the garden. When you’re after a little more life, there are two glorious beaches just a ten-minute stroll away.

Even the journey from the airport takes no more than 15 minutes; a real bonus for anyone who prefers not to spend too much time in the car whilst on holiday. But when you’re ready to explore your magnificent surroundings, historic Bonifacio, La Tonnara (the ‘sunset beach’) and the famous warm shallow waters of Roccapina are all within easy reach. And though the Corsicans are far too discreet to make a fuss, you’ll be in good company in A Liccia. The village is currently enjoying a bit of a ‘moment’ and you might even spot a French film star or two mooring up at the marina.

I was the lucky recipient of a surprise 70th birthday present which turned out to be a lovely holiday with my family in this beautiful villa. What a treat it turned out to be with much needed fun, not only in the villa but also during our exploration of southern Corsica. The beaches around Palombaggia proved spectacular... the nearby towns of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio proved interesting enough to spend a day exploring their historical buildings, shops and restaurants. The time spent here with my wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren was very special to me and will always be affectionately remembered.

Howard Francis, May 2024

What a beautiful villa! Equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed trips to Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio – especially in the evening! We had a day in the mountains via L’Ospedale and Zonza and back via the scenic drive of the Route de Bavella. Santa Giulia and Rondinara beaches were our favourites. Roberto, the concierge, was most helpful. We can’t wait to return again to this wonderful island.

The King family, September 2023

My family have made some special memories in your beautiful villa. Merci et au revoir!

Katrina, September 2023

My holiday with Simpson (another one!) was absolutely superb. Claire and Roberto go to great lengths to ensure that my stay in Corsica is always a roaring success. And this is why I return year after year!

Ms Judith Catherwood, September 2023

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.
