A Pinarella in Haute-Corse, a villa in Corsica: Swimming Pool

Stone-built house: pool, 1 acre, sea/mountain views. Sleeps 8 + 2 in studio.

A Pinarella is a massively-beamed stone house built with traditional materials but modern comforts. The house has a large sitting/dining room, four bedrooms (2 double + 2 twin), 2 bathrooms, 2 separate WCs, a well-equipped kitchen and a laundry/storage room with second large fridge. A large independent studio sleeps 2 with twin beds, kitchen, shower room and terrace; it is not let out separately but contact owner for price.

There is a large covered terrace at ground level overlooking the pool and sea, with an outdoor dining area as well as space to relax. At the upper level, two covered loggia look over a panoramic seascape to the north and mountains and villages to the south. There are several other terraces (one with a wisteria covered pergola), providing ample opportunities for members of larger parties to find space to relax alone, either in the sun or shade.

The pool is 6m x 12 m and from 1m to 2m deep so is ideal for serious swimmers, but there is also a child-friendly area of shallow water. The pool is surrounded by palms and other Mediterranean planting and has breathtaking views over the sea and Cap Corse. Beyond the pool is a wilder walled garden of over one acre with Corsican oak, pine, citrus, olives, aromatic shrubs and sculptural boulders. High gates give peace of mind for families with small children, although the house is on a quiet road where the most frequent passersby are horse riders from the local stables.

The house is on a network of ancient footpaths, giving easy access to excellent walks. Monticello (3 minutes by car or a 10 minute walk via an old pathway) is a small village with narrow alleyways, old stone houses, a village shop and a small, popular hotel/restaurant which has been run by the same family for several generations. Tennis and horse riding are within walking distance.

Ile Rousse and the sea are 4 km away. Ile Rousse has a delightful old town area with small shops, a porticoed covered market, sandy beach and a large central square with palm trees, boules and outdoor cafes and restaurants shaded by plane trees. There are two supermarkets. Excellent beaches are to be found in all directions, many with child-friendly shallow waters.

Trips to the string of Balagne villages in the foothills of Corsica’s high northern mountains are recommended, or you can travel into the interior to bathe in mountain streams or walk and picnic on shady pine-covered slopes. On the coast, go to Calvi to visit the medieval citadel or sit at a cafe overlooking the beautiful bay where Lord Nelson lost his eye when the British Navy and Corsica were fighting the French. Calvi also claims to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and locals say he was only considered Genoese because Calvi was then owned by Genoa. In the opposite direction, take a trip via the barren Desert des Agriates to St. Florent and Cap Corse, where there are small villages, beaches and a coastal road with vertiginous drops and stunning views.
