This spacious villa is situated on a private estate, five minutes’ drive from Palombaggia Beach. The architect has made generous use of both space and light, combining natural materials and a muted contemporary colour scheme to complement the stunning setting. The private pool is surrounded by mature Mediterranean gardens, with distant views of the sea at Palombaggia. With three bedrooms in the main house and an additional guest house, the villa offers flexible accommodation for a family travelling with grandparents or older teenagers. Alternatively, Les Tortues may be combined with our other property on the estate, Les Lofts de Palombaggia, to create a luxurious private venue for an extended family gathering or party.

In addition to the beaches of Palombaggia and Tamaricciu, many of Southern Corsica’s visitor highlights are within easy reach, including Porto Vecchio, the golf courses at Sperone and Lezza, and the magnificent Ospedale forest.

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.
