This windmill offers complete immersion in wild, authentic Corsica, where it as beautiful as it is peaceful. The windmill has been located on the old olive mill road, just below the village of Olmeto, since 1783. It was renovated with taste, and deep respect for the natural environment. From the coast, a small road then a pathway will take you to an alleyway bordered with lantana shrubs, heavy with the scent of maquis plants. A majestic palm tree welcomes you to the windmill, perfectly nestled in the tree-covered hills. A small river runs below the property, and can be reached via a lane from the garden.
In front of the house, there is a sunny stone patio perfect for breakfasts with the birds singing and cicadas chirping. The interior is very original, with Asian antique furniture, and you feel the striking charm from the front door.
