An impeccable new villa close to the magnificent bay of Santa Giulia, this stylish three-bedroom property combines high-level contemporary comfort with sweeping sea views.
The villa sits quietly in its own grounds, flanked by a couple of centenarian olive trees and encircled by cork oaks, umbrella pines and dense, fragrant maquis which scents the evening air with the subtle yet unmistakable perfume of the Mediterranean. The exterior has been designed to blend in with the pretty country setting, with chunky beams, weathered roof tiles and great slabs of sun-warmed stone, which continue to radiate the heat of the day long after the sky has faded to the soft pink of dusk. Inside you’ll find all the polished elegance that this sophisticated corner of Corsica is renowned for, dressed in calm, neutral décor with the odd shot of bougainvillea-bright colour to echo the stunning natural surroundings. Vast picture windows capture the uninterrupted views from multiple angles, and each of the three en-suite bedrooms opens directly onto a sunny terrace.
Santa Giulia beach, with its watersports and handful of beach bars is just a few minutes away by car. For shopping, dining or a spot of people-watching with a perfectly chilled apéritif in one of the numerous bars and restaurants of the Vielle Ville, Porto Vecchio is a 15-minute drive.

Roberto’s help before and during our honeymoon at Villa Petra Bianca was absolutely first class. In the months leading up to the trip, he was extremely helpful in responding to numerous questions very quickly and always with clear and useful information. This ranged from recommending restaurants, organising someone to bring breakfast to the villa each morning, organising a private chef and customising the menu.
Mr Cottee-Jones – July 2019
Thank you so much for letting us stay in beautiful Villa Petra Bianca. We had the most wonderful week and celebrated a big birthday too. It was the most fabulous holiday and we loved every minute.
John, Sarah, Harry & Mark Spooner & Harry Forbes-Nixon – August 2018
We had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Petra Bianca. If you want to hire a boat, go to ‘Marine Location’ at the harbour – they’re superb and hiring a RIB is a lot of fun. You can moor at beaches not accessible to cars. We thought that Plage de Tamaricciu is the best beach – loads of room and a great restaurant on the beach. The sea is shallow and crystal clear. Roberto, the Simpson Travel representative, is fantastic – you can ask him anything. Porto Vecchio does get busy, but has a lovely atmosphere – and if you have children and want to do out for dinner note that the restaurants don’t open until 7pm.
The Gledhills – August 2018
We absolutely loved Villa Petra Bianca. The villa is fantastic and the whole area is stunningly beautiful – there is so much to explore. Thank you so much Simpson Travel for making this such an easy, happy family holiday.
Mo, Tania, Oscar, Lilia & Klara – July 2018
Many thanks for having us! We had a wonderful time at Villa Petra Bianca!
The Kirbys – July 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.
