This supremely secluded villa is grand in both scale and design, with a spectacular 14m pool, original artwork, hand crafted furniture and a rather magnificent kitchen, built to the highest spec of its restaurateur owners.

The property clings to the hillside, logically laid out with the living and dining areas on the top floor where the views are finest, and numerous steps connecting the various levels. Yet despite these impressive features, the house was built to blend in, nestling unobtrusively into the surrounding maquis, with nothing to jar the eye or detract from the far-reaching views.

Villa du Maquis is ideal for entertaining, complete with two outdoor dining areas and a summer kitchen to complement the state-of-the-art cooking facilities inside. And if cooking is not a word you care to associate with holidays, we can arrange a private chef service or restaurant bookings in nearby Porto Vecchio (10 minutes by car) to suit.

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.
