‘L’Île de Beauté’ : A Grand Beachfront Estate on the Resplendent French Island of Corsica

Known by the French as ‘L’Île de Beauté’ (the Island of Beauty), Corsica’s rugged mountains, sublime white sand beaches and rich history and culture make it one of the mediterraneans most exclusive and best kept secrets. The little French island is an absolute dream for yachters with its secluded glimmering bays, spectacular rugged coastline and dramatic pink and white cliffs that rise from the glimmering turquoise waters. Pulling into the port of Bonifacio, one of the mediterraneans most astonishingly beautiful harbors, is an awe inspiring experience for even the most experienced sailors. True wine aficionados will find themselves in one of the most exciting wine destinations in France- referred to by the national appellation body as a land of ‘legends and magic’. Whether you are after an active holiday filled with adventure, a romantic cultural encounter or a totally relaxing retreat in a blissful island paradis, this French gem is a fantastical place for a holiday home. What better way to enjoy all this enchanting island has to offer then from your own private beachfront estate.

Nestled into 2.5 acres of lush green hillside property that leads to a secluded sand beach, this estate offers total privacy, evoking a feeling that perhaps the island is yours alone. Enjoy over 7400 sqft of light and airy living space with a tastefully appointed interior that exudes a casual elegance perfect for a luxurious beach retreat.

The capacious kitchen is sleek and sophisticated, designed for convenience and comfort. Featuring an oversized kitchen island with seating for six, you will have plenty of space to prepare food while making it a lively and fun social affair. The cool modern design is the epitome of chic and will make cooking a joy.

Enjoy lazy afternoons lounging poolside basking in the radiant sun or under the cool shade of the plushly furnished terrace. Whip up a simple yet succulent charcuterie board of local meats and cheeses for a light afternoon snack at the adjacent alfresco kitchenette. The bright sapphire blue pool overlooks the enthralling view  of sea and mountain while the unintrusive glass walls maintain an open connection to the gorgeous natural surroundings.

Whether you spent the day touring Corsica’s famed wineries, exploring ancient hilltop villages or snorkeling off Palombaggia beach you will always have evenings on the fantastic veranda awaiting you to relax with a glass of wine and perhaps a slice of fiadone pie to savor as you luxuriate in the slowly setting mediterreanan sun.

With bedrooms  that strike just the right tone of sophisticated island chic and sleek bathrooms,  every member of your party will have ample space to relax and enjoy their time on this magnificent property situated on a truly enchanting island.
