Villa Courbet is a chic holiday home nestled in a leafy landscape backed by mountains in l'Ile-Rousse on Corsica’s northern shores.
 
Sleeping up to 6 people in three bedrooms and boasting a lovely, open-plan living and dining area, this is the perfect base for a family or group of friends seeking to explore the French island’s natural beauty.
 
The interior has been tastefully decorated and furnished with a sense of modernity, thoroughly visible through the choice of designer furniture in the living room. In order to make the most of the incredible views, the living areas are located on the first floor of the home where you can gather together to cook dinner or enjoy drinks on the terrace with staggering sea and garden views. There are three bedrooms elegantly furnished in neutral tones located on the garden level, all offering a great sense of comfort. The living room is a modern space with a plush sofa and a long dining table for cherished dinner soirées. The kitchen is also in this area and has everything you need to prepare a tasty meal for your party.
 
The private terrace turns sunset-watching into a daily ritual – and trust us when we say this is the place where to properly indulge in golden hour – so get ready for enjoying most of your meals al-fresco. Enveloped by greenery from every side with bushes of lavender and other herbs, you’ll love the unspoiled atmosphere as you sip your morning coffee prior to exploring the island.
 
Step outside the property to be enveloped by Corsica’s stunning natural vistas, with a road fringed by cypress trees leading to the beach. Boasting crystal-clear water and chalk-white sand, it makes for an excellent spot where to fully relax.
 
In the opposite direction, you can visit l'Ile-Rousse with all its amenities such as restaurants, bars, cafés and shops, as well as a small harbour offering boat trips, excursions and ferries to neighbouring islands. There’s also a public beach to retreat to when the weather becomes unbearable.
 
Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike will love exploring Northern Corsica’s rugged landscape on foot. Head to Monte Cinto, Corsica's highest mountain, with hiking and climbing routes leading to its craggy summit granting successful hikers with exceptional views.
 
In the heart of Northern Corsica, the desert of the Agriates is an unexpected landscape made of Mediterranean scrubs, small hills and rocky outcrops, with the best way to enjoy this unique part of the island being by motorbike or quad bikes.

Only a 15-minute walk separates you from the sea at Villa Courbet, and the picturesque beach is well known by tourists and locals alike for its relaxed oceanfront featuring a sandy shoreline and turquoise waters.

Here you’ll also find sea-facing restaurants if you want to tuck into refreshing Mediterranean meals and enjoy sunset aperitifs. Just around the corner across the hill you can also find a water sport rental, with a range of activities available including windsurfing, paddleboarding and kayaking lessons.
 
Residential yet masked in a carpet of greenery, the surrounding area has plenty of local amenities such as bakeries, supermarkets and shops, as well as some restaurants. The closest supermarket can also be reached in just a few minutes by car.

Boat trips, cruises and ferries to mainland France and Italy depart from the port at l'Ile-Rousse. If you’re waiting for your boat’s departure and have time to kill, you can discover a historical fortress with pretty coastal views perched on the small peninsula overlooking the harbour. On other occasions, spend a day strolling around l'Ile-Rousse's winding lanes full of cafés and ice cream shops, or head to the main beach backed by a lively promenade.

If you prefer exploring the rugged coast via an off-the-beaten path, there are many hiking trails, great for spotting dolphins, turtles and other wildlife from the top of rocky cliffs. Plan d’eau d’E cotule is another nice walking area with a lake, located just a 20-minute drive away.

Discover more stunning coves and tranquil beaches as you travel further up the coast. Only reachable on foot, Plage de l'Ostriconi is an idyllic spot with a powder-soft sand with a picturesque backdrop of wild vegetation and dunes. Plage de Vana is similarly secluded and very scarcely frequented, and can be accessed via a rocky path from Plage de l'Ostriconi – fantastic if you want to escape the crowds without going too far.
 
Although the island’s main draws are its captivating beaches and unspoiled natural landscapes, there are also many picturesque villages of the Balagne hills, scattered across the captivating landscapes of this region, from charming Monticello to beguiling Sant'Antonino, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Children of all ages will love splashing around the shallow waters and running around carefree on Corsica’s wide open beaches. Luckily, there’s a beach just a short stroll away if you need to quickly change the scenery, and it even has a water sport rental to keep little explorers occupied. If you fancy a picnic with a scenic setting, head to Plage de Lozari – a beach backed by mountains with water sports.
 
Less than 10 minutes away by car, there is a botanical garden with well-maintained Mediterranean plants and trees, suitable for a harmonious stroll and a visit to the souvenir shop the whole family will enjoy.
 
For a day trip, consider visiting the village of Calvi, located less than a 30-minute drive away. Stroll to the old town and climb up the steps to Citadella di Calvi offering panoramic views of the city and sea, or wander around the marina to look at boats ranging from flashy yachts to fishing barges. There are plenty of family-friendly restaurants, cafés and ice cream parlours dotted along the narrow cobbled streets too.
