If your idea of a beach house conjures up images of a simple wooden cabin, then you’re in for a wonderful surprise. The Beach House is a generously-sized villa, elegantly contemporary and superbly equipped, with a large heated swimming pool and a self-contained guest suite ideal for an accompanying nanny, grandparents or teenagers looking for an extra degree of independence. The layout works particularly well for two families or a multi-generation group, with a total of five bedrooms in three distinct areas for maximum privacy.

Lovely as the interiors are, the Beach House is all about outdoor living. There’s sun, shade and space for all on the pool deck, complete with an outdoor area for your morning coffee or pre-dinner G&T. A rocky path leads through the grounds to a wooden beach deck, where you’ll find a paddle board and more seating, and then directly to the sand, less than a minute from the house. There’s a very good little restaurant here in high summer, with several alternatives in nearby Abartello, just five minutes away by car. If you prefer to eat in, you can barbecue to the sound of the waves on your beach deck, or pop out to pick up some classic Corsican pizzas, wafer thin and crisped to perfection in a traditional wood-fired oven. For more sophisticated dining and spectacular beaches, Propriano is a short drive away.

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.

The Gulf of Valinco makes for an inspiring holiday destination – and not just for the wonderful beaches. Propriano is one of the oldest island resorts, its marina lined with cafés and restaurants. South lies Campomoro and, to the north, in the folds of the Taravo Valley, stand the menhirs of Filitosa. Inland, you’ll find the mountain villages of the Alta Rocca, below the Bavella Peaks. And don’t miss the ancient capital of the south, Sartène, a favourite with wine buffs.
