Working on the premise that an exceptional location beats elaborate décor every time, this simple yet spacious modern beach house is an absolute gem, literally metres from the water’s edge near the quietly desirable little resort of Pianotolli-Caldarello. The sandy beach is barely an indolent pebble’s throw from the house; naturally we don’t recommend lobbing stones randomly from the terrace, but if you did you’d be highly unlikely to hit anyone as this tucked away little cove sees remarkably few other visitors.

With three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms, this is a comfortable base for a family or a couple looking for that highly prized waterfront position. The villa is very airy and bright, with French windows opening onto gorgeous sea views all along the front of the house. If you tire of soft sand between your toes, the Beach House also has its own swimming pool and wooden deck area, surrounded by trees and granite boulders for seclusion. Historic Bonifacio is an easy day out by car, and for serious beach aficionados, there are other stretches of paradise nearby, including the ‘sunset beach’ La Tonnara and the mesmerising turquoise shallows of Roccapina.


During the winter of 2016 the exteriors and pool area of the villa are being renovated. 

Pianotolli is a convenient 15-minute drive from Figari airport, which means planes are visible and sometimes audible depending on the wind direction. However, it’s not a busy airport and daily flights are relatively infrequent.

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.
