Overview

Recommended Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Hot Tub Laptop Friendly Workspace Romantic

After sailing around the world, the kind and welcoming owners returned to their beloved Corsica and created Villa Kallisté more or less with their bare hands. Between Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, in a domaine surrounded by the aroma of maquis, this is such a special place to stay with sweeping sea views down to Rondinara Bay.

It’s the most beautiful villa full of Corsican warmth and character. The curved walls and ceilings of the lounge and dining area are handcrafted whilst the wooden windows frame the views of the sea beyond. Four inviting bedrooms await with twin or double beds, one of them an especially gorgeous garden suite independent to the main part of the house.

Step outside and the vistas of the sea will take your breath away whether dining al-fresco on the shady terrace, sitting back in the jacuzzi or cooling off in the glorious swimming pool. It’s an enchanting and authentic setting that has brought great joy to guests over the many years.

It’s just over a 5-minute drive down to the idyllic Rondinara Bay with its sandy beach and crystal-clear water for swimming and snorkelling. There’s a beachside restaurant usually open in the summer months and seasonal watersports including kayaks, paddle boards and pedaloes.

Admire the beauty of Bonifacio, soak up the ambience of Porto Vecchio, come across yet more brilliant beaches such as Plage de Santa Giulia or head inland to discover southern Corsica’s spectacular scenery as you hike through the Forêt de l'Ospédale, gaze at the Col de Bavella or seek out rockpools along the Cavu and Solenzara Rivers.

In southern Corsica, almost equidistant between Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, Villa Kalliste enjoys the most stunning views of Rondinara Bay, only 27km from Figari Airport.

The villa is part of a small domaine (do note that the last part of the access road is unsurfaced) where you will also find Villa U Sognu and the owners who discreetly live by the entrance of the grounds. There is a small village and restaurant around 1km away whilst the nearest amenities including supermarkets can be found just outside Bonifacio or Porto Vecchio.

Rondinara Bay is a 5 to 10-minute drive away. It’s such an idyllic beach with gently-shelving sea perfect for swimming and snorkelling alongside seasonal watersports (usually kayaks, paddle boards and pedaloes) and a summer beachside restaurant. A couple of marked walking trails take you through the maquis to a smaller bay with the most wonderful views.

Further north is the atmospheric town of Porto Vecchio (17km), perhaps stopping off at the very beautiful Plage de Santa Giulia (11km) or the more remote Plage de Porto-Novo (8km) en route. Porto Vecchio is one of Corsica’s most popular destinations, loved for its vibrant ambience in the town’s charming historic quarter and down by the marina.

To the south, Bonifacio (18km) is another must-see, often described as an open-air museum with its medieval citadel, churches and historic port. As you wander around the artisan shops and restaurants of its citadel, perched above dramatic limestone cliffs, you can appreciate glorious sea views around you.

There are of course so many opportunities for walking, horse-riding, watersports and boat trips along the southern coast of Corsica, including ferries that depart to the very remote Lavezzi Isles. Golf lovers should try and book a round at the prestigious Golf de Spérone (21km), a course designed by Robert Trent Jones.  

Lovers of the outdoors should also take time to visit the incredible interiors of the island whether hiking through La Forêt de l'Ospédale, rock-climbing in the Col de Bavella or simply driving to mountain villages to discover Corsica’s spectacular and rugged scenery.

Within a 10-minute drive from Villa Kalliste is the gorgeous, family-friendly beach at Rondinara Bay. As well as gently-shelving sandy shores, perfect for paddling, snorkelling and swimming, there is usually a choice of seasonal watersports such as kayaking, paddle-boarding and pedalo hire. Pack a picnic or enjoy lunch in a summer beachside restaurant for a lovely day by the sea.

Of course, there are endless beaches and little bays in this part of southern Corsica and you are perfectly placed to reach both the iconic beaches close to Porto Vecchio (Santa Giulia and Palombaggia, for example) and slightly quieter shores near Bonifacio and Figari. Look out for a wide range of watersports as well as idyllic coastal walking trails and boat trips.  

Families may also appreciate the activities offered at Parc Aventure de Porto-Vecchio, a 14km drive away, where you will find tree-top trails, trampolines, go-karting and an inflatable play area.

Drive inland for more outdoor adventures set in the glorious interiors of this spectacular island with horse-riding, rock-climbing, hiking, mountain biking, canyoning and more.
