Holidays will be different this summer. Find out how travel is changing and what we are doing to keep you safe here

The name of this impressive property was inspired by its palatial dimensions: from the huge garden to the spacious, elegant interiors, there’s ample room here for one or two families, a gathering of friends or perhaps a multi-generation celebration. Yet despite the grand proportions, the house is designed for lazy summer living, with direct garden access from three of the four bedrooms and a fully equipped pool-house kitchen so you don’t even have to wander back to the villa for your sun-lounger sun-downer.

Having this much space often means sacrificing proximity to restaurants, but U Palazzu enjoys the very best of both worlds, ideally located just a 10-minute walk from Porto Vecchio old town. This cultural, shopping and dining centre appeals to all ages, filled with everything from holiday souvenir stalls to designer clothing stores and a host of inviting restaurants either open to the stars or tucked away into the centuries-old city walls. The villa’s private grounds and pool make it very easy to while away a whole week here, but there’s masses more to explore nearby, with the nearest beach just a 10-minute drive away. Island highlights such as Bonifacio and the spectacular Col de Bavella are easily accessible for a memorable day out.

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.
