From the outside, Villa Palombaggia resembles many other villas in the area, with its traditional terracotta roof supported by huge weathered timbers. Once inside however, the rooms are really fresh and funky, combining the style of a boutique hotel with the laid-back atmosphere that is part and parcel of being so wonderfully close to the sea. Highlight of this house must be the extra large living area, which connects seamlessly to an equally generous terrace, creating a vast, light-filled space with glorious views across the eponymous bay. The villa also benefits from a guest cottage which offers flexible accommodation for a family travelling with grandparents or older teenagers offering that extra degree of independence.
The villa is surrounded by semi-landscaped Mediterranean gardens and fronted by an elegant swimming pool. The turquoise waters and soft sands of award-winning Palombaggia beach are less than a kilometre away, while the shops, bars and restaurants of Porto Vecchio are just 10 minutes by car.

Villa Palombaggia is a superb house in a stunning location – it has the stylish quality home-from-home feeling rather than just a holiday house. We would certainly return for those views. We are looking forward to our next Simpson Travel adventure in Majorca in August but it has a lot to beat.
Mrs Bryden – July 2016
We could drink in the views from this beautiful villa all day long. Weather was perfect, lingered well into the evening having a barbecue and a glass of wine on the longest day. Thank you for letting us enjoy your lovely villa.
The Ellis Family – June 2016
This is a truly stunning villa and location. We particularly liked touches like the funky lighting and the pool was a massive success. We leave with heavy hearts.
The Stanford Family – June 2016
Villa Palombaggia is superb. A truly wonderful week here, spent by the pool during the day, and on the terrace in the evenings. A lovely view, we didn't want to leave. The three main restaurants on the beach are all good. Enjoy your time here, and thank you Simpson Travel.
Mr Newcastle – September 2015
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
Just across the water from Sardinia, history takes a cosmopolitan turn in the winding streets, imposing citadels and elegant marinas of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio. A luxury holiday here comes with no shortage of style, and plenty of restaurants, cafés, boutiques and museums. Not far away, you'll also find the family-friendly beaches of Pinarello and pine-shaded Palombaggia, as well as the white sands of Santa Giulia and chic St Cyprien.
