NEW FOR 2024

 

If you love the warmth and character of natural materials but can’t sacrifice contemporary comfort, stunning new Villa Occhinello is the one for you. This beautiful new farmhouse-style villa is tucked into a classic Corsican landscape of granite boulders, fragrant evergreens and gnarled old olive trees, with mountains rising to the rear and the deep blue of the Valinco Gulf sparkling to the fore. Sympathetic design means the villa feels spacious yet inconspicuous in its surroundings, the perfect spot to kick back, relax and let the power of nature soothe all your senses.

Inside you’ll find top spec and timelessly tasteful décor, totally in keeping with the modern farmhouse feel. For maximum flexibility, your party can spread over the three bedrooms in the main house and an additional guest cottage, complete with en-suite and its own little living area. It’s an idyllic spot for friends, several couples or a family group, with plenty of living and dining space both inside and out. The pool is a fabulous focal point, designed so the water level comes right to the pool edge, creating a beautiful, mirror-like surface (until the kids decide it’s time to play!) Last but not least, the location is sublime, and all the better for knowing that gorgeous Valinco beaches plus the shops and restaurants of Propriano are only a 10-minute drive away.

Good to know… For the start of the 2024 season, new outdoor furniture will be in place to include new sofas, dining table and chairs.

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.
