Floor to ceiling windows frame the magnificent sea view at Villa Poinsettia, a contemporary gem in the Balagne hills just a short distance from some of north-west Corsica’s most gorgeous sandy beaches.

Indeed, light floods into the open plan living, dining and kitchen space at this modern and stylish holiday home whilst sliding doors open straight out to the decked terrace, al-fresco lounge and heated swimming pool. Imagine lazing outside with a glass of chilled Corsican rosé as you gaze towards the Balagne coast and shimmering blue sea.

Up to ten fortunate guests can stay at this stunning Corsican villa, sleeping in five double bedrooms scattered across the floors, each one with air-conditioning and a private shower room, some also with views towards the sea.

You are within a short drive to a characterful hillside village where you can admire the surrounding scenery and there’s a small handful of places to eat, or venture slightly further afield to other idyllic villages scattered across the Balagne landscapes such as Pigna, Monticello, Lumio and Sant'Antonino, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Some of the region’s most beautiful beaches are also within easy reach from the sandy shores, crystal-clear sea and summer beachside restaurants at Plage de Ghjunchitu to the watersports and long sandy beach at nearby Algajola. Not to mention the close proximity of Calvi, only 20km away, with its ancient citadel, historic lanes, glitzy marina and another fantastic beach.

Even closer to home is the incredibly charming seaside town of L'Île-Rousse, such a picturesque place to soak up the Corsican ambience. After dining in an authentic restaurant in the old town or on the beach, wander up to the lighthouse at sunset when the rock glows red and experience yet more sensational views.

      In the Balagne region of north-west Corsica, close to some of the region’s most idyllic beaches, Villa Poinsettia enjoys incredible sea views from its perched position in the countryside.

      Set above a small country road with other villas dotted around, it’s only a 2km drive to the main part of the local village where you can appreciate more wonderful vistas towards the Mediterranean.  

      Heading down towards the coast, within a short distance you can be exploring some of Corsica’s loveliest beaches. Plage de Ghjunchitu is a scenic sandy bay with crystal-clear sea backed by gorgeously scented maquis with a couple of summer beachside restaurants. Plage de Bodri is another Corsican gem close by or come across picture-perfect little bays such as Plage de Cala di Furnellu. The small seaside town of Algajola (5km) is easily reached with its restaurants, watersports and glorious long beach, Plage d'Aregno.

      L'Île-Rousse (4.5km) is a particularly beautiful old town with little streets filled with shops and restaurants specialising in delicious Corsican food such as chestnuts, wild boar or the catch of the day on one of the beach restaurants. The little covered food market is also a joy to experience. Walk up to the lighthouse at Ile de la Pietra for spectacular views, especially around sunset when the rock glows red.

      Take time to discover many of the traditional villages in the Balagne countryside such as Pigna (5km), known for its ceramics, Monticello (8.5km) and Sant'Antonino (11km), one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Lumio (11km) is also incredibly picturesque with its baroque church, olive trees and Wednesday morning market. From Lumio, keen hikers can venture up to the abandoned village of Occi for more panoramic scenery or take advantage of the many walking trails across the superb Balagne landscapes.

      Back by the coast, the handsome town of Calvi (20km) has an amazing citadel with spectacular vistas, narrow streets filled with charming restaurants and shops as well as a glitzy marina with cafes and bars. The town beach has lovely shallow waters and watersports including jet-skis, paragliding and windsurfing. The setting of Calvi is particularly spectacular with the rugged mountains in the background.

      Boat trips can be taken from the marina in Calvi to the Scandola Nature Reseve (a World Heritage Site), an unspoilt area of fascinating rock formations with restricted access only by boat (or foot via high mountains).

      Another area of outstanding beauty is the beach at Ostriconi (18km), north-east of L'Île-Rousse, a wild beach only accessed by foot. Continue along the winding roads of the Desert des Agriates to the harbourside town of St Florent (50km) at the foot of the equally stunning Cap Corse, a wild peninsula with characterful fishing villages and mesmerising scenery. There are also some good wines to taste in this part of the island, especially around Patrimonio (57km).

      Within a short drive there are so many glorious sandy beaches with crystal clear sea. Plage de Bodri is an absolute gem or spend time at the gorgeous Plage de Ghjunchitu.

      The small seaside town of Algajola has a lovely long sandy beach with a good choice of watersports including wind-surfing and snorkelling. The town beach in Calvi has lovely shallow waters and watersports including jet-skis, paragliding, kayaking and windsurfing.  Older kids can also learn how to dive in one of the diving clubs along the coast.

      Inland there are some delightful villages in the Balagne countryside such as Sant'Antonino where you can ride donkeys or discover amazing horse-riding opportunities across the region.  There are also canyoning and climbing classes in the mountains that may appeal to older kids.

      You are also a short distance from the delightful U Trinichellu, an old-fashioned takes you in either direction to L'Île-Rousse or Calvi, stopping off at lovely beaches on the way (such as Bodri). It only goes once every hour or two during the day and can get busy in the summer months, but this is a lovely way to go out for lunch or visit an amazing beach with the family.

      Boat trips can be taken from the marina in Calvi to the nearby Scandola Nature Reseve (a World Heritage Site), an incredibly unspoilt area of beautiful rock formations with restricted access only by boat (or foot via high mountains).
