Casa di L'Olivu

Overview

Casa di L'Olivu

Tarrabucceta, Corsica

A beautiful bergerie-style property set in peaceful grounds and surrounded by ancient olive trees. Situated between Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio, the location is very convenient for those wishing to explore the South of the island.

Situated down a peaceful country lane amongst mature olive trees and set in the same grounds as Villa Bicu Rossu and Casa di Pruno, Casa di l’Olivu offers a tranquil countryside retreat whilst not being far from the main towns and beaches of the south coast.

With spacious grounds surrounding the private and inviting pool as well as a superb summer kitchen, this property is perfect for outdoor Mediterranean living. The accommodation is arranged on one floor with an open plan living/dining room, a well equipped kitchen, two spacious bedrooms, a contemporary shower room and a separate wc. Decorated in neutral shades, the villa has a warm and welcoming feel with comfort being a key theme. When you can eventually tear yourself away from the property, the towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio are well worth a visit and only around 15 minutes' drive away.

There is also a wide choice of stunning beaches in the area whether you fancy visiting the famous Palombaggia and Santa Giulia sands or exploring the unspoilt coves of Figari bay. Casa di l’Olivu is a charming property and a perfect base from which to explore the delights l’Extrême Sud has to offer.

Things to see and do in the area

Visit Restaurant "U Fuconu"

Located only 5 minutes drive away in Figari Village, this quaint local restaurant offers home made, Corsican specialities at a reasonable price making it well worth a visit. Live Corsican music is normally played at the weekends adding to this delightful atmosphere..

Old Porto Vecchio

The old Genoese walled town still seduces visitors with its picturesque narrow streets and the austerity of its high stone houses that are set within the Citadel's ramparts. Wander the ancient streets, the Borgo, where you can see the enormous twisted tree of the Place de la Republique, the 19th century church of St-Jean Baptiste and the gallery housed within the Bastion di A Funtana Vechju.

Porto Vecchio Marina

Within a few minutes walk of the old town, the marina lined with cafés is an excellent place to enjoy a leisurely drink during those hot summer evenings. There is also a variety of boat trips on offer with tours around the beautiful coastline.

L'Ospedale

A short drive inland from Porto Vecchio will bring you to the Ospedale forest, and some great spots for a picnic.

Bonifacio

At Corsica’s southernmost point, the fortress town of Bonifacio sits in an isolated location perched high on a limestone plateau and surrounded by an expanse of maquis. Mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey, the precipitous white cliffs overhang the turquoise waters below and are honeycombed with old watery grottoes. Established in 833, the old town is rich in history with its dramatic Citadel, ramparts and maze of narrow cobbled streets. The newer harbour has a more Italian flair with an abundance of cafés and restaurants dotted along the Quai Comparetti – the perfect spot to watch the yachts set sail.

Unspoilt, un-commercialised and truly beautiful. I discovered Corsica only a few years ago and fell in love with it. It’s an Island of immense natural beauty, with stunning coastlines, clear turquoise waters, breath-taking mountain scenery, medieval villages and chic seaside resorts which capture the hearts of returning visitors year after year. The great news is that you can now fly to Corsica direct from Bristol Airport, which is a real bonus.
