We’ve seen many extraordinary Corsican villas over the years, but barely a handful can compete with Villa Paradisu for its style, space and stunning location. Sprawling triumphantly across one of the most sought-after sites on the island, this eight-bedroom home extends over 500 square metres, though its low profile and lush gardens make for pleasingly minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. Vast sliding walls of glass blur the lines between outside and in, all the while maintaining private spaces to snooze, sip a drink or simply gaze at the stars as they appear one by one in the violet evening sky.
The house is configured to maximise the splendid sea views over the Bay of Palombaggia, with an infinity swimming pool and extensive, informally terraced gardens. Two of the bedrooms form an annexe of their own in these gardens, with the remainder spread over the ground and first floor of the main house. The bathrooms are nothing short of palatial, and there’s even a telescope on the upper level so you can spot who’s who on the celebrity yachts that often cruise this celebrated coast. Other distractions include table tennis, a boules court and a gym, but this is very much a grown-up space, recommended for a group of friends or perhaps families with older children. Palombaggia beach and Porto Vecchio town are five and 20 minutes away by car respectively.

Our experience using Simpson Travel was simply superb. I’ve never experienced this level of customer service on other villa holidays. Highly recommended and definitely looking to book with you for next year!
Mr Brown – October 2018
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.
