This Villa is situated about a 10 min walk along a main road to the town and the coast.
The Villa had absolutely everything we needed and more and was very comfortable to stay in.
As in a previous review the bedrooms with balconies although with lovely views of the coast are also next to the main road.
The owners are very friendly and helpful.
My one small disappointment, which may be due to it being at the end of the season, was that the pool wasn't a little cleaner around the sides.
Propriano is a lovely town although very busy even when we were there in September and is a good base for covering the area. Not far from Bonifacio or Ajaccio. We also found some lovely villages. One of which is inland Ste-Lucie de Tallano and Tizzano along the coast.
We would come back here again.
We were greeted on arrival by Ange and his wife.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and our hosts had thoughtfully stocked the 'fridge with water, fruit juice, ice and a few beers. These were most welcome as it was a very hot day.
The apartment itself is spacious, bright and well equipped, with a large fridge/freezer and a very nice rainhead shower. Wardrobes and cupboards are plentiful and there was no shortage of hangers, which made a pleasant change.
Two keys were provided so we could come and go as we pleased, and the car was safe and out of the hot sun in the underground garage.
As the title suggests, the location is ideal. Slightly set back from the road in a new development, the apartment has a splendid view of the Gulf of Valinco from the generous terrace. There is a (seemingly) small supermarket called Utile a couple of hundred yards away that stocks just about everything, while the centre of town is just 3 minutes' walk away and offers a plethora of choices for eating and drinking.
The nearest beach is only a 5-10 minute amble away and there are watersports options such as jet skiing and wind-surfing.
Monsieur Ange assures us he is practising his English in readiness for more visitors from the UK, but speaking some French certainly made things easier! He would be our first port of call should we go back to Propriano one day.
