When looking for a place to stay near Porto Vecchio, Villa Les Arbousiers is an unrivalled holiday villa. This spacious home sits on landscaped grounds and enjoys incredible sea views towards one of Corsica's most famous beaches, Plage de Palombaggia, which can be reached on foot!

Your relaxing break can begin as soon you enter the enclosed gardens which span 6000m2; it's a tranquil haven filled with lush native plants and tall trees, boasting staggering views of the sea and small islands.  

As you enter the villa, you will see that the house has been designed to make the most of the views. The open-plan living space is lined on both sides by huge windows so guests can look down over the garden and the sea to one side and the unique Corsican vegetation on the other. Leading to the sun terrace, this room is a fantastic space for friends or family to gather for a meal or drinks in the evening. Next to the living room, you will find the modern, fully-fitted kitchen with everything you need for preparing meals or brewing your morning coffee.

The six bedrooms are spread across two wings on either side of the living space, many leading to the terrace or garden. Two double bedrooms are available, as well as a four twins, providing plenty of space to get a great night’s sleep.  

The garden of Villa Les Arbousiers is wonderful, and you could easily spend all day outdoors relaxing in the sun. The private swimming pool and the large terrace offer incredible views, and guests can unwind on sun loungers by the pool or with a good book in the comfy armchairs. If you would like to dine al-fresco, there are several spots to choose from, including a covered dining terrace where you can cook on the barbecue.   

When you wish to go out for the day, you will be thrilled to learn that the villa is on the road to one of Corsica’s best beaches, Plage de Palombaggia, just under 1km away. This beach is breathtaking with fine soft sand and crystalline water, backed by rows of pines. Close to the beach, you'll find seasonal restaurants for al-fresco dining in stunning surroundings.

Further South, iconic Plage de Santa Giulia is 10km by car or head further south to breathtaking Bonifacio and the gorgeous beaches of the Bonifacio and Figari coastline. For the mountains, head to the Ospedale Forest and the Bavella peaks or the mountain villages of the Alta Rocca.

When you wish to explore the atmospheric old town of Porto-Vecchio, you can wander around its narrow streets with its old churches, boutique shops and restaurant terraces, after just a short 10km drive.

Positioned between the breathtaking Palombaggia Beach and the unique terrain of the Corsican maquis, you will find Villa Les Arbousiers sitting on expansive grounds overlooking the sea.   

Perched above one of the roads leading to the famous beach, you can reach Plage de Palombaggia and its seasonal beachside restaurants on foot in less than 1km. This incredible bay is known to be one of Corsica’s finest and is ranked by UNESCO as one of the nicest beaches in the world! You are sure to want to spend plenty of time here unwinding in the sun and swimming in the shallow, clear waters. Although parts of the beach can get very busy in the summer, if you walk a little further you can usually find quieter spots with staggering views of the bay. If you enjoy snorkelling, bring your mask and snorkel to get up close with the underwater plants and sea life that thrive amongst the inlets and the red stones.

Iconic Plage de Santa Giulia is 10km by car or for a change of scene, head north to Plage de Saint Cyprien (20km) for more beachside restaurants and watersports. It's yet another beautiful beach with an array of activities on offer, such as water skiing and kayak hire. This beach also has a lovely selection of bars and restaurants, so it is a great place to spend an entire day.

Aside from the coastline, Corsica has plenty more to see inland, such as the L'Ospédale Forest, 27km away. This enchanting place is filled with hiking routes through ancient woodlands, passing waterfalls and a large lake. While here, you can go quad biking, rock climbing or simply pack a picnic and enjoy a leisurely stroll up to the historic hilltop village of Ospedale.  

If you wish to spend a day in a busy town and do some shopping, then drive to Porto-Vecchio, 10km away. Here you can explore the pretty streets, visit independent boutiques and barter at the market. When it is time for lunch, you could try the fresh seafood down at the harbour or enjoy brunch and a few drinks al-fresco. As well as having a wide range of shops and restaurants, Port-Vecchio is steeped in history. The town changed hands between Genoese and French rule over time, so it is topped by a Genoese Citadel built in 1539. This fortress protected the area from invaders and pirates over the centuries though it was destroyed and rebuilt repeatedly after battles. Visitors can now see the building on a guided tour. Also, in the atmospheric old town, you can wander around and see medieval churches such as the Chapelle de la Sainte Croix.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Corsica is a delightful location for a family holiday as there are many stunning and clean beaches to take the children to and charming towns nearby.  

There are plenty of opportunities for memorable day trips with the kids in the South of Corsica. One idea is to take the children to Parc Aventure de Porto-Vecchio, which is 8km away by car. This is a tree-top adventure park which has lots on offer for a range of ages. There are nine climbing routes of varying difficulties to choose from, which are set high in the trees. There are zip wires, slides, jumping nets and tunnels to play on and even go-karts. The park is located in a shaded eucalyptus forest which is ideal for hotter days, and there are picnic areas and a snack bar for lunch.
