Perks for the Parents

This villa near the beautiful beach resort of Pinarello has a panoramic view of the sea and the mountains, a large, heated pool and a stunning, contemporary interior. It sleeps up to 15. Parents that enjoy cooking will appreciate the fully equipped kitchen with an American-style fridge and 2 dishwashers. The kids’ room is downstairs and there’s a queensize bedroom opposite, which may be perfect for a nanny or au pair. Meanwhile, Sperone golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, is in Europe’s top 40 and less than an hour’s drive.

Why Kids Love it

The kids’ bedroom has 2 sets of low-slung, custom-made bunk beds – they’ll love sleeping together. The house is well equipped with toys and games for under 10-year-olds. Baby equipment, including a high chair and changing table, is provided. Nearby beaches such as Plage de la Tour Genoise Fautea and Plage De Pinarello provide lots of sand and surf fun. Two family bathrooms with baths and showers are helpful when coming back from the beach. The tree-climbing, canyoning and cycling adventure park of A Tyroliana is just 10 minutes by car.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The swimming pool has an electric shutter but no gate – the pool is open from April to October and is heated at no additional charge. The house is on top of a hill, so access is steep. Car hire is mandatory to access the property. The entire villa is air conditioned. A concierge service organizes check ins and cleaning. Additional services such as babysitting and boat rental can be arranged with them at a preferential rate. All linens and towels are included. No pets are allowed. The 3rd bedroom on the ground floor has a wide independent entrance adapted to a wheelchair and a bathroom suitable for guests with reduced mobility.

About the Location

This residence is just halfway between the beach resort of Pinarello and the little village of Sainte-Lucie-de Porto-Vecchio in Zonza, south-east Corsica. The villa is a 4-minute drive to the closest beach and a 9-minute drive from Pinarello and its sandy beach. Porto-Vecchio, 30 minutes south, is full of sparkling yachts and chic boutiques, plus plenty of family-friendly restaurants. The closest airport is Figari–Sud Corse (50 minutes’ drive) but you also can land in Airport Bastia-Poretta (BIA) (1h, 40 mins). To arrive by boat, dock in in Bastia or Porto Vecchio.

Style Notes

Rooms with a view. This south-facing sunny villa is full of bright seaside color. Each room has its style, the master bedroom is blue and white with tan chairs, another is yellow with a deckchair-style striped throw, while the kids’ room is white with a pretty tee-pee, fairy lights and shark bean bag. The furniture is contemporary with muted tones and natural textures. We love the large pool, the high-end, sleek finish and the wonderful views overs Pinarello Bay and the Alta Rocca mountains.

Family of 5, we love doing sport. Our main home is in Paris, city that we love. In winter, we all go skiing in the Alps and in summer we usually travel to Western part of France and South of France like Corsica.

Corsica, South of France

Rugged and natural in its steep and craggy splendor above the sea, Corsica is a gem for families in search of Mediterranean coastal beauty, adventure and culture. Bonifacio, the southern-most town in France, is perched high on cliffs over the water creating a fairy tale-like backdrop, while the beaches at Palombaggia, Rondinara, Santa Giulia and Pinarello are among the best in the world. Family fun can be found at ProKart go-karting course, Xtrem Sud, an adventure park on the shore of the Ospedale reservoir, and A Tyroliana's ropes courses for those seeking a thrill. The Piscines Naturelles de Cavu are rockpools nestled in the rough terrain for more exploration with the little ones, or for something more challenging go trekking in the mountains at Alta Rocca or Bavella. Take a break from the sun and sport with upscale shopping and abundance of first-class local food and wines on offer.
