  • Stylish and contemporary
  • Private heated swimming pool
  • Beach and watersports nearby

One of Corsica’s most distinctive features is the proximity of impressive granite peaks to the coast, a spectacular fusion of high Alpine wilderness and pristine Mediterranean beaches that gives rise to truly breathtaking views. Sitting close to San Ciprianu beach, four-bedroom Mare e Monte captures both the sea and mountain panoramas thanks to its dual aspect design, framing green hills and an ultramarine sea in floor-to-ceiling glass. Slide back the doors and you can step out onto your pool terrace to the rear of the villa, a beautifully private spot to swim, sunbathe or just relax and revel in the glorious views.

Mare e Monte lies at one end of San Ciprianu bay, a long crescent of fine white sand lapped by turquoise water, with plenty of watersports options and a cluster of small restaurants in the village, which lies at the opposite end of the bay. The clear waters make it a popular dive centre, and if you take out an SUP and a mask you can see plenty of marine life without even going under water. The bay is also the home of Le Cabanon Bleu, a renowned beach bar and restaurant which is something of a local institution. For a wider choice of places to dine and shop, you can reach buzzy Porto Vecchio in around 30 minutes by car.

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.
