A pretty house in quiet, peaceful location. It is ideally situated for the best beaches in the area and a short drive from Porto-Vecchio. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and communications during the booking process were excellent.
We had a very enjoyable holiday and would be happy to return.

We had a superb stay in this charming private villa in June. We were looking for relaxation and peace and we found it.
With unusually high temperatures of 35 c degrees and above for the time of year, we were enormously grateful for both the inviting swimming pool and the AC units in the living room and bedrooms. The en suite bathrooms were practical as we were two couples sharing the house.
The kitchen is well-equipped and there is an effective BBQ on the patio which made eating al fresco practical and easy. The two outside dining areas meant that we could choose the shadiest spot for having meals, though shade is inevitably a rarity in the middle of the day. The gardens are well tended and spacious, giving privacy, even though there are neighbouring properties close by. The wifi worked well, as did the TV and smart phone compatible music player. There is an interesting and eclectic collection of DVDs which we had great fun perusing!
A car is needed, but amenities are not far. There are well-stocked supermarkets and a boulangerie within 8 minutes' drive and a hypermarket 20 minutes away adjacent to Porto Vecchio. Palombaggia beach is a few minutes drive down hill - it's probably possible to walk there and back, but not in the searing heat that we experienced. We went to the Palm Beach club at Palombaggia where we had a good lunch and the beach amenities (loungers/umbrellas), while not cheap, are in keeping with prices charged in the area. Santa Giulia beach is a different style (more activities) and also worth a visit. The Tamaricciu itinerary is a nice walk along the prettiest part of Palombaggia beach, best attempted early in the morning during the hot season both for finding a parking space and for escaping the crowds. A drive up to Ospedale in the mountains gives a break from the heat as it is a few degrees cooler and there are spectacular views and other delightful walks. We ate at the Auberge U Fontanonu in Ospedale village where we were able to have traditional rustic Corsican food. Porto Vecchio high town makes for a pleasant visit for a couple of hours.
All in all, we had a perfect trip and would highly recommend this lovely property.
