About the Villa

Welcoming Home with Magnificent Views and Private Pool

This five bedroom villa was custom-built in 1991 to provide spectacular panoramic views of the Golfe d’ Ajaccio and the mountains of Corsica . The stunning and unobstructed view from the terraces and garden show the local beach and rocky headlands of the coast, and beyond the beautiful blue Golfe d’ Ajaccio to the majestic mountains that dominate the landscape of Corsica in the background.

Accommodation

Views from Terrace:

Sunsets across the sea to the Isles des Sanguinaire are spectacular. At night the lights of Ajaccio across the bay sparkle like a diamond necklace. Into June, the snowcapped peaks of the island’s central mountain range provide an amazing backdrop as you sunbathe on the terrace. In season, you’ll be cooled by sea breezes while watching windsurfing, sailing and larger boats taking safe harbor in our local cove. The contrasting blues of the sea and the waves splashing on the rocky headlands just beyond our local sandy beach provide visual entertainment throughout the day.
