Villa Estivale is an excellent choice for your holiday- ideal for active and outdoors types, those interested in seeing cultural and historical sites, and those whose idea of the perfect break is spent doing nothing, just relaxing and soaking up the sun.
Exterior Villa Estivale is found in an area of Southern Corsica that has preserved its wild side. Simplicity reigns but refinement certainly has its place.Just a stone´s throw from the sea the villa is located on the edge of a gulf where there are a succession of white sandy beaches each one seemingly more beautiful than the last, romantic creeks, black, white and pink granite, well-preserved nature spots and a few little hillside villages.The attractive town of Propriano with its marina and commercial harbour is just a ten minute drive along the coastline from the villa.There are numerous other places to visit in the area: thermal springs close by, vineyards and cellars boasting excellent wines, mountains and forests for hiking, the picturesque village of Sartène, "the most Corsican village of Corsica, " a whole array of sporting activities including sailing, canoeing, horse-riding, and much more…Villa Estivale is nestled in 3 hectares of grounds, a traditionally-build stone house it blends perfectly into the Corsican ´maquis´ with unbroken views over the bay whilst maintaining its complete privacy. To the front of the villa is a superb south-facing wooden terrace, it has a covered area furnished with dining table and chairs for lovely al fresco meals along with other garden lounge furniture including sofas and sun beds. Guests will certainly enjoy making use of the barbecue, traditional pizza oven and herb garden too. Of course a villa wouldn´t be complete without a private pool and Villa Estivale´s is particularly beautiful, with a stone border and wooden decking for basking in the sunshine. Below, a narrow shady path winds its way through the property´s grounds down to sandy creeks, your own direct access to the sea. The villa also affords shaded parking.
