Villa L’Alivu is one of six charming villas on the hillside adjacent to the ancient village of Olmeto. Tranquil and picturesque with its terracotta rooftops and slopes cascading down to the unspoilt beaches of the Valinco Gulf, the area is a walker's paradise.

Each property benefits from its own private swimming pool cleverly designed to provide privacy and the most spectacular of views, whether barbecuing al fresco or enjoying the peace on the terrace. Bright interiors, an open-plan layout and stylish décor combine to create a light airy feel, with well-equipped kitchens and comfortable seating areas adding to the appeal.  Villa L’Alivu, Villa Vigna Maggiore, Villa Doniche, Villa A Murta, Villa Vista and Villa l'Alta enjoy this enchanting spot, with local beaches, shops and restaurants just 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.
