Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite Parking Space

Gaze towards a Genoise Tower in the distance as you relax on your vast poolside terrace at this stunning architect-designed villa in south-eastern Corsica, north of Porto Vecchio. What’s more, a path through the fragrant maquis takes you to the pine-backed sandy shores of the very beautiful Plage de Pinarellu.

This contemporary, air-conditioned abode manages to blend ultra-modern style with touches of Corsican character with a nod to the island’s nature. Alongside a superb open-plan living, dining and kitchen space, fantastic features include a lavish cinema room where you can watch movies accompanied by bold prints of Brigitte Bardot, and a fitness and games room with gym equipment and a billard table. Six elegant bedrooms each feature twin or king-size double beds and their own bath or shower room.

The design of the heated swimming pool allows you to appreciate your Corsican surroundings, cleverly styled with stonework and decking alongside olive trees and landscaped Mediterranean plants, in a raised position with a glorious outlook. We love the al-fresco dining table beneath the shade, the perfect spot for al-fresco meals at any time of day.

Wander past neighbouring villas and soon you will reach a trail that leads you to Plage de Pinarellu, around a 10-minute stroll away. Make the most of the seasonal beachside restaurants or find an idyllic spot by one of the umbrella pines for a day soaking up the beauty of Corsica’s south-eastern coastline. It’s gently shelving shores are especially attractive and there is a range of watersports in the summer months.

Porto Vecchio, 18km by car, is another fine day out with its citadel, old quarter, marina and boat excursions, whilst the historic town of Bonifacio can be reached within an hour, one of Corsica’s must-sees. For a change of scene, drive into the nearby Forêt de l'Ospédale or discover rock pools and incredible landscapes around L’Orsu and Solenzara valleys.

Keen hikers also note that the famous GR20 ends in the little village of Conca, only 10km away, whilst there is a wonderful coastal walk close to Plage de Saint Cyprien, just a short drive south of your villa.

Just a short walk to the idyllic sandy shores of Plage de Pinarellu, Villa A Torra enjoys a wonderful location in south-eastern Corsica, around a 18km drive from Porto Vecchio.

Wander past neighbouring villas to reach a trail that leads through the Corsican maquis towards the pine-backed beach at Plage de Pinarellu. It’s a glorious place to spend time with a small handful of seasonal beachside restaurants dotted along the 2km long beach as well as summer watersports such as jet-ski, paddle-boarding, pedalos and sea-kayaking. The gently-shelving sea will appeal to families and there are ample snorkelling opportunities.

It's a 5-minute drive to two supermarkets and from there you can head south towards Porto Vecchio (18km) with its bustling bars, cafes and restaurants across its old quarter. It’s one of the island’s most popular destinations – stroll by the marina looking out for luxurious yachts and take advantage of boat excursions including trips to the remote Lavezzi Islands. Furthermore, Bonifacio (47km) is a must-visit if you can find the time – its exquisite citadel is perched above limestone cliffs and you can descend the famous steep staircase all the way down the sea.

The coastline around Bonifacio and Figari features many brilliant beaches, some wilder and possibly less crowded than those around Porto Vecchio in the height of the summer. Slightly closer to home, the iconic beaches of Palombaggia and Santa Giulia are just over half an hour by car whilst gorgeous Plage de Saint Cyprien, another one of the island’s most popular beaches, is only 7km south of your villa.

Heading north instead, Solenzara (26km) is loved by outdoor adventurists with canyoning opportunities in the Solenzara valley. Keen walkers will adore the landscapes of southern Corsica’s Forêt de l'Ospédale or venture further towards the dramatic scenery of the Col de Bavella, around an hour away. It’s also worth noting that the famous GR20 walking route ends in the charming village of Conca, only 10km from Villa A Torra.

The beautiful Plage de Pinarellu is within walking distance, around 1km away via a path through the maquis which leads to the pine-backed sandy beach. As well as gently-shelving shores and clear water ideal for snorkelling, you will find summer watersports such as sea-kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and pedalos.

Plage de Saint Cyprien, a 7km drive to the south, is another popular bay with families and a great spot for water-based activities or a lunch out in one of its picturesque restaurants. Of course, the southern Corsican coastline offers a wealth of idyllic beaches from the iconic Palombaggia around 30km away (head there early for a parking space) to wilder spots around Bonifacio and Figari.

Around Porto Vecchio there are further watersport opportunities, boat excursions and outdoor activities such as horse-riding and wonderful walks. Children may enjoy a trip to Parc Aventure de Porto-Vecchio with its suspended nets, tree-top trails and go-karting (subject to age/height).

Further north, adventurous families with older children/teens can discover the stunning Corsican landscapes when hiking through the nearby Forêt de l'Ospédale or beyond and partaking in activities such as canyoning, especially around Solenzara to the north of your villa.
