Now and again we come across villas that are so well designed they almost become a destination in their own right, and the immaculate Villa di Lume feels like just such a property. The location alone is highly desirable, nestled into an exclusive development and surrounded by open grassland, oak trees and the ancient umbrella pines that are such a feature of this magnificent coastline. Inside, the décor is deliberately understated, maximising the luxurious sense of space and drawing all eyes towards the myriad blues of Palombaggia bay. It’s seductively easy to lose all track of time here, flitting between the soft sand and the pool, the beach bars and your own glorious  terrace as each sunny day slips effortlessly into the softness of a Mediterranean evening. And as an extra bonus for early or late season, or those travelling with sensitive little ones, there’s also a heated indoor pool to make swimming a pleasure whatever the weather.

Villa di Lume sits on the same private estate as our Villa Marinka, Villa MK2 and Villa di Sole, enviably located within a few minutes’ walk of Palombaggia beach, with its smart beach bars, watersports facilities and invitingly clear shallow water. Should you wish to make a table reservation, treat yourself to an in-villa massage or even a helicopter flight over the Bonifacio coastline, your Simpson Exclusive Concierge will be happy to assist with these and any other requests.

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.
