Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

This striking architect-designed villa enjoys the most spectacular sea views from its landscaped gardens and terraces and is within easy reach of many idyllic beaches and villages scattered across the Balagne region of Corsica.

Experience the incredible setting whilst dining al-fresco on the decked terrace as the sun sets, gazing out towards the Mediterranean and everchanging sky. As well as the heated swimming pool and poolside patio, there are several areas across the landscaped grounds from which you can admire the wonderful vistas or soak up the ambience of your natural surroundings.

Inside, the air-conditioned interiors are simply yet tastefully furnished with an open plan living, dining and kitchen space alongside five bedrooms across several floors, allowing Villa Motif to sleep up to 10 guests. Three of the bedrooms have their own private bathroom, some feature sea views whilst they all have a door leading to one of the many terraces or grounds.

Within a short drive you can reach L'Île-Rousse, such a charming historic seaside town with a great choice of authentic restaurants, a delightful market and sandy beaches. Also close by are some of the Balagne’s gorgeous bays such as Plage de Ghjunchitu and Plage de Bodri, both stunning spots with sandy shores and turquoise coloured sea. Along this coastline you’ll come across beachside restaurants, watersports and the most amazing scuba-diving opportunities.

Head into the hills to explore picture-perfect Balagne villages including Monticello, Pigna, Lumio and Sant'Antonino, spend the day appreciating the historic beauty of Calvi, hop on a boat to tour the magnificent Scandola Nature Reserve or drive through the remote Désert des Agriate towards St Florent and Cap Corse – the possibilities in this part of northern Corsica are endless.

Villa Motif is in north-west Corsica’s Balagne region, close to a pretty hilltop village and with glorious sea views of the coastline below.

With other villas scattered around, just off a country road, it’s a 2.5km drive up to the nearest village where there are a couple of restaurants and amazing vistas towards the Mediterranean.

Heading towards the coast, L'Île-Rousse (4km) is a delightful town dating back to the 18th and 19th century with a lovely town beach and an old quarter with charming shops and authentic restaurants. Look out for the covered food market that sells local specialities such as cheese, honey and charcuterie, watch old gentlemen play boules on the main square accompanied by a coffee or chestnut beer, enjoy freshly caught fish at one of the town’s beachside restaurants and then walk up towards the lighthouse for the most wonderful views, especially at sunset.

There are plenty of other beaches within a short drive, the nearest being Plage de Ghjunchitu which enjoys such a scenic position backed by a couple of beachside restaurants, whilst neighbouring Plage de Bodri is another favourite amongst locals. If you are seeking a range of water-based activities, check out Plage d’Aregno by the small seaside town of Algajola (5km) or spend the day by Calvi’s glorious long beach.

Indeed, Calvi (20km) is a very beautiful historic town with an especially captivating citadel. From the marina, hop on a boat for a tour of Scandola Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site only accessed by boat or via the incredible hiking paths of this dramatic coastline.

If you find the time, drive through the remote Désert des Agriate to the handsome harbourside town of St Florent (49km), perhaps stopping off to walk down to the remote and idyllic beach at Ostriconi.

Not forgetting the enchanting villages of the Balagne countryside including Pigna, Monticello and Lumio, all reached within a short drive, as well as Sant'Antonino, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. There are so many glorious walking trails, horse-riding opportunities and cycling routes, all perfect ways to appreciate the magnificent beauty of this part of Haute-Corse.

This part of the Balagne coastline is wonderful for families with so many sandy bays with crystal-clear sea and a range of watersports nearby.

Plage de Bodri is a favourite with families, as is the very beautiful Plage de Ghjunchitu, backed by a summer beachside restaurant.

Algajola, a small seaside town between L'Île-Rousse and Calvi, has a great long sandy beach with summer watersports such as windsurfing, snorkelling and more. Calvi is another great spot for water-based activities – look out for jet-skis, diving opportunities, kayaking and paragliding or just enjoy the long beach and gently shelving shore.

Horse-riding is popular in this region, either along the coast or in the picturesque hills of the Balagne countryside. Canyoning and rock-climbing is another great pursuit for families with older children whilst youngsters can ride a donkey in the idyllic perched village of Sant’Antonino.

Another fun trip out is the charming U Trinichellu, the old-fashioned train that chugs along between L'Île-Rousse or Calvi, stopping off at various pretty points along the way. If you can manage to beat the crowds on this tiny train, which tends to run hourly in the height of the summer, it’s a fantastic way to travel to Calvi for lunch or stop off at a local beach.
