Overview

Pool Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

With pristine beaches and the bustling town of Porto Vecchio within easy reach, Villa U Riposu is set in the perfect position for exploring the south-eastern corner of this beautiful island.

This modern and spacious holiday home is a great place to stay with extended family or a group of friends, sleeping up to 10 guests with flexible options for smaller groups outside the height of the summer. Across this air-conditioned villa you will find two doubles and three twins, some with doors leading to a terrace, alongside three modern shower rooms.

On the main floor, the open-plan living space is superb with a stylish L-shaped sofa, dining area and contemporary kitchen with everything you need to prepare delicious Corsican feasts. Slide open the windows to the terrace with an al-fresco lounge and dining table, perfect for warm summer evenings as you gaze out towards hills and sea sparkling in the distance.

Indeed, the terraces on Villa U Riposu are wonderful whether you wish to relax with a glass of Corsican wine or take a dip in the private swimming pool. Guests will adore the characterful gardens which lead down to a charming boules court set amongst the Mediterranean trees and plants.  

Set in a little hamlet, it’s a short drive down to Plage de Saint Cyprien, just over 5km away, an idyllic beach with summer beachside restaurants, seasonal watersports and crystal-clear sea perfect for gentle swimming and snorkelling. A little further afield, Plage de Pinarellu is another stunning beach backed by pine trees and you will also find coastal walking trails with the most glorious views along this part of the Corsican coastline.

Heading inland, discover the island’s magnificent landscapes as you hike through the Forêt de l'Ospédale or dine in a traditional mountain auberge enjoying chestnuts, wild boar and delicious cheeses with honey.

Alternatively, for a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants, make sure to pay a visit to Porto Vecchio, only 12km by car. Here you can explore the old town and fortress, shop at the market square and go out dancing in the evening at some lively bars and clubs, soaking up the summer ambience of one of Corsica’s most loved destinations

Set in south-eastern Corsica around 12km north of Porto Vecchio, Villa U Riposu is wonderfully located as guests can choose between lazy days at the pool and exploring nearby beaches or busy days out discovering the charms of historic villages and towns.

You will likely spend quite a lot of time down by Plage de Saint Cyprien and the seaside village which the beach backs on to. This incredibly beautiful bay, just over 5km away, has turquoise water which is calm for swimming as well as soft, white sand making it a perfect beach for the whole family. If you are feeling adventurous you can try out windsurfing, jet skiing or even parachuting over the water or you may prefer the range of summer restaurants either by the beachside or a short stroll away.

There are plenty more beaches you can visit nearby, including the unique Plage de Cala Rossa (8km) with its red-toned sand, surrounded by ancient woodlands and featuring two restaurants. Further south, the breathtaking Palombaggia Beach is also worthy of the 23km drive, one of the island’s most famous beaches – head there early to avoid the summer crowds.  

Though Corsica is known for the beauty of its coastline, visitors should also spend time making the most of the inland walking and hiking routes which offer staggering views – look out for a range of outdoor adventures in the Col de Bavella and Forêt de l'Ospédale. You can even explore Corsica’s rugged interiors by booking on to a 4x4 tour or a leisurely trek on horseback through the maquis covered shrubland.

The largest town in southern Corsica, Porto Vecchio, is a great place to visit. The medieval old town has lots to see, including historic churches and the 16th-century fortress which towers over the town. Visitors can book a guided tour of this fortress, known as the Citadel, where they can explore the vast vaulted hall and turrets with slits for arrows which have seen many battles take place. As well as the historic attractions, the town has lots of shops and restaurants as well as markets which pour into the streets.

The historic town of Bonifacio (40km) is another must-visit during your time in southern Corsica, surrounded by many more idyllic beaches perfect for swimming, long coastal walks and watersports.

A further popular day trip is to take a boat from Porto Vecchio or Bonifacio to the nearby Lavezzi Islands. You can decide between hiring a private boat and skipper or booking tickets for a guided boat tour around these stunning protected islands which often include lunch. On these boat trips you can see unspoilt beaches and traverse the rocky terrain before swimming in the dazzling water.

Set 5km inland, Villa U Riposu is well-suited to those travelling with little ones who will enjoy long days at the gorgeous beaches and visiting the nearby towns and villages.

The town of Porto Vecchio is 12km away from the villa and is a lovely place to visit with the kids. The town has an incredible 16th century citadel which has a great hall and turrets the children can explore and often hosts interesting exhibitions. After a day of looking around the castle, souvenir shopping and ice cream breaks, you could visit Corsica Park in the evening in the height of the summer. This park opens as night falls and is an amusement park with rides and attractions to suit all ages! 

Furthermore, across southern Corsica, experience gently-shelving beaches, a range of seasonal watersports as well as horse-riding and other outdoor adventures, a fantastic way to appreciate the island's rugged beauty.
