Villa review:

The owner lives there in winter and lets it out in summer so everything is immaculate. It had a stylish open plan sitting room with large comfy sofas, and sliding glass doors on three walls.

Outside was a large sun terrace and a private warmed swimming pool which was both gated and had its own alarm – a godsend to parents. The pool area was integrated into several rock formations and surrounded by olive trees and myrtle bushes.

It was very private and quiet, but just a three-minute drive from the nearest beach."

A car is essential and we wasted no time returning to the cliff-top town of Bonifacio on the most southern tip, about 20 minutes’ drive away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed a week in the villa and enjoyed every day in this specious house. It is nicely furnished, (with much attenction to detail!) and equiped with all the confort you need. The private, heated swimmingpool fitted into the natural surrounding is the highlight of the garden. Also the quiet location near Porto Vecchio is a big plus. Beautiful, white sanded beaches are just a few minutes away by car. The villa met fully our expectations. We can recommend it for relaxing holidays.

A fantastic villa - faultless!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for two weeks over June/July 2012. We have stayed in quite a few villas throughout Europe, and we were very impressed with Villa Dona Lisa.

Inside, the villa is very spacious, with a large living area with plenty of sofas and a big flat-screen TV. The kitchen has all the facilities and cooking implements you would need, and connects through to the dining table and living room in a large, open plan fashion. The villa is very clean - something that pleased us immensely.

Outdoors, there is a great table for al fresco dining, and there are many other little areas where you can get space from your family and friends if needed. The pool area has a great deck for sunbathing, and the pool is warm, clean and large enough for the kids to have a play. The whole outdoor area is very secluded and private, with well established trees.

The location of the villa is great - close to the fantastic Santa Giulia, Palombaggio and Rondinara beaches. You are very close to the great towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, with the Alta Rocca and L'Ospedale within easy reach for a mountain walk if you get tired of the water.

Christian, the owner, is always available if you have problems, and very attentive to our needs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Dona Lisa, and recommend it to anyone looking for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, I've been very glad to meet your charming family, and the way you enjoyed your stay in Corsica, exploring and discovering many aspects of my island, no just seaside, but also mountainside and real traditional Corsica. Thank you so much to have been so friendly, I did appreciate this, and to have treated Villa Dona Lisa as well as it was yours, I think it's because you've appreciate the villa and feel just like it was your home away home.... Sorry again for my poor english, but facts are always better than many words.... A special word to Chris - What an ironman are you! climbing and falling hills among the corsican nature by jogging all around the villa in the early morning. Warmest regards, Chris

Luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa easily accommodated our small party of two adults and two children, when we return we will definitely ask the grandparents along!

The property is spacious throughout, with high quality fixtures and furnishings. Indeed as well as the great feeling of space inside, the other noticeable thing was how much care had been put into the interior design. Christian (the owner) has clearly put a huge amount of time, effort and money to create something special here.

The outside of the villa reflected much the same as inside, plenty of space and seating for everyone. We loved the area further to the back back with the weber gas barbecue and small sofas, it was the perfect place to enjoy the last of the day's sun with a glass of wine. The heated pool is secured by access through a gate and has an alarm that detects if someone falls in (you de-activate it before swimming), which was fabtastic for us with small children.

The villa is situated close to what are considered some of the best beaches in France. However depending on which beach you go to parking can be tricky so I suggest planning ahead. That being said, we never had an issue if we arrived by late morning.

Finally a quick word about Christian. His family have deep roots in Corsica and he knows the area as only a local can. He provided us with great advice about beaches, restaurants, where to visit etc. He is also an extremely kind person, was really good with the kids and made us feel genuinely welcome.

Thank you Christian, and we hope to see you again next year!

Second visit to this Villa and it was fabulous again

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Corsica over 7 times. We found this villa two years ago and returned this summer. It was a great trip. The villa is very well maintained, kitchen has everything you could ever need, very high specification and fab pool. The location is really lovely in a small village, in very easy reach of all the fabulous beaches in this part of Corsica. Supermarkets nearby but also very high quality smaller shops with great food. Eating out is easy with lots of local restaurants. Also easy to get up to the mountains for a day walking and swimming in rock pools. Christian is a super host, communicates via email for booking and is around if you need him at any time but leaves you to get on with your holiday.

A Fabulous Villa in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three boys 14 to 17) are privileged to have just enjoyed our second summer holiday at Villa Dona Lisa. It is a very special place located in a traditional, quiet Corsican village, about 10 minutes south of Porto Vecchio by car.

It is the only place we have ever felt compelled to revisit, so wonderful is the villa and the local area, with its contrasting attractions of world renowned beaches, lightly forested mountains (good for walks) and many excellent restaurants, all close at hand. Porto Vecchio is great to walk around with some stylish shops, a port area where our boys enjoyed looking at the yachts close-up and a bustling night life focussed on the many small restaurants and bars in the narrow, pedestrianised streets of the traditional Corsican town centre.

The villa is very private and tranquil making it easy to relax in, with high quality fittings and furnishings and seemingly every amenity provided from coffee machine to complementary snorkelling equipment and free parking pass to the nearby Santa Giulia beach. The secluded pool area is delightful, being ingeniously landscaped into the hillside and well shielded by mature plants. There are also great views of the surrounding countryside, all of which creates an atmosphere of quiet luxury, which makes the villa not just a place to stay but a real pleasure to spend time at in its own right.

Christian is an excellent and gracious host with a strong sense of traditional Corsican hospitality. From the point of arrival, where little welcoming touches delight, he is discretely available to ensure that all goes well with your stay and personally cleans the pool most mornings. The start of our first stay in August 2016 provides an exceptional example of his kindness. Due to a mix up with the hire car, my wife and boys arrived at Porto Vecchio by bus from Bastia late the first evening to find that no taxis to the villa were available as planned because a festival was underway and roads were shut. Christian came out to meet them in his own car, took them up to the villa and provided something to eat.

In summary - fond memories of croissants and pastries from the fine patisserie in Porto Vecchio; relaxing days ‘chilling’ around the pool; simple evening meals of great local cold meats and cheeses on the patio; fine dining at excellent restaurants with stunning views over the bay and idle mornings at lovely beaches with leisurely swims in the warm, clear Mediterranean - Perfect!

Hi, Villa DONA LISA is available for rent directly with me, after many years of collaboration with famous operators tour companies from UK as Coastline VIP Villas with fully success as one of the villas best seller!

Ideally located in a residential typical corsican village area, with plenty of fantastic corsican white sandy beaches all around! known as the most beautiful in Europe, they are all white sandy (Santa Giulia bay, is the closest one less than 5 minutes from Dona Lisa, there are also others fantastic beaches as Palombaggia, Rondinara.....) and porto vecchio centre the famous corsican balnear station, Porto Vecchio, south corsica, is one of the most sunny european spot.

The old 'citadel' of bonifacio and the fabulous golf of spérone (18 holes) boarding the sea are nearby.Golf: Fantastic Sperone Golf (Bonifacio), less than half hour away.

Recognised as one of Europe's best golf courses, the exceptionally scenic 18-hole Spérone really does have something special to offer. Regularly in the top 100 of Golf World's best it is definitely well worth the trip! As a Robert Trent Jones design (although his European partner Cabell Robinson did the actual work) the course combines 12 inland holes with gorse and heather, with six stunning holes along the coast and seaside cliffs.

As soon as you tee off you can enjoy sublime views of the glittering Mediterranean, the Lavezzi Islands and even the distant peaks of Sardinia. Spérone is a test for the best golfers - the fairways are wide, but the challenge arises on this hilly course when playing off the back or when the wind blows. To score well you will need to have every shot in your bag. If your handicap is not yet single figures, the course owners suggest that you play off the forward tees and simply admire the design and scenery.

Golf lessons are available, equipment can be rented and the Spérone hilltop clubhouse is also reputed for being a great pre or post game treat.

Although Corsica has no other 18-hole golf courses there are 9-hole golf courses, and Golf de Spérone can be perfectly combined with another Robert Trent Jones Sr masterpiece at the Pevero Golf Club in Sardinia. Situated on the Costa Smeralda, at the northern tip of the island.

Also Golf Lezza practice + (9 holes), 3 minutes away.
