NEW FOR 2022

Cradled into the hillside above Ile Rousse, Villa la Pietra has the most incredible views, stretching over maquis-clad slopes to the sea and the distinctive craggy outline of La Pietra island in the deep blue bay beyond. The house has been designed to take full advantage of this magnificent position, with two stunning terraces and glass doors spanning the entire length of the living and dining area. The outdoor living space is dedicated to your complete holiday pleasure, with one terrace devoted to lounging, cooking and dining al fresco, and the other built onto the roof hold a heated infinity pool, more lounging space and even a boules pitch.

Once inside, the look is equally seductive, with coastal colours and natural materials paired with luxury fabrics to create a glamorous boutique-hotel vibe and make you feel properly pampered. All four en suite bedrooms can be classed as masters, and each can be configured as a twin or double, ideal for a luxury girls’ week away, a family with older children, or a group of friends looking for hotel-level comfort and villa privacy. Whoever you travel with, you’ll find some of Corsica’s most celebrated towns and beaches on the doorstep, with charming Ile Rousse a mere five minutes away by car, and the unmistakable citadel port of Calvi just a little further along the coast. Both are brimming with cafes, restaurants and chic little shops where you can supplement your holiday wardrobe or stock up on foodie treats to take home. And if the great outdoors is more your thing, the Balagne countryside beckons, with cute villages and countless paths to hike or bike, safe in the knowledge that there’s a supremely comfortable base waiting for you when your day of unforgettable experiences is done.

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.

With fishermen mending their nets by the harbour, Calvi’s maritime heritage remains intact. However, the town has gained a new lease of life in the cafés and bars along Quai Landry, linking the marina and the port, with stretches of beach beyond.

Inland, the unspoilt beauty of The Balagne tells a different story of mountain wildernesses and the island's unspoilt and uniquely fragrant maquis. Follow the Route des Artisans through terracotta-tiled hilltop villages, overlooking a landscape of forests and mountains, and you’ll also find that an excellent glass of local wine is never far away.
