  • Exceptionally stylish villa
  • Stunning sea views
  • Private swimming pool
  • Close to beautiful Palombaggia beach
  • Restaurants 5min drive

Villa di Sole is simply stunning – the perfect geometry of the single-storey building is softened by the surrounding umbrella pines and cork oaks and meadow-like garden. The interiors share the same simple elegance as the exterior, with light, bright spaces furnished in tasteful neutral shades, but it’s really the location of this property that makes it so special, as rentable villas this close to this beach are very rare.

The villa and the pool both face directly out to sea, giving a 180˚ view of Palombaggia Beach, the Iles Cerbicales Marine Nature Reserve and even as far as Sardinia on a clear day. The Cerbicales offer some of the best diving in the Mediterranean, but if you prefer to stay on top of the water there are boats, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards available to hire directly from the beach. The soft sands of Palombaggia are a five minute stroll so you can come and go from the house as often and as easily as you please, and you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the beach during the main summer season. There’s also an outdoor lounge area by the pool if you prefer a more intimate evening, and for a much wider choice of restaurants and shops, the buzzy harbour town of Porto Vecchio is around 20 minutes away.

Customer feedback

We had a fabulous time at Villa Di Sole the villa was stunning and a beautifully furnished home. The kitchen had everything and more than we needed. The bathrooms were also stunning and well equipped but did not have any doors separating them from the bedrooms, which could be a little too open for some. The setting and view were amazing. We did not want to leave. Roberto was charming and understood that we needed a very quiet, restful time.

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.
