What We Think
Situated at the end of an unmade country lane that zigzags down from the village of Monticello, Villa l’Ortale is a bright modern villa with superb views across the maquis-covered hillside, to the town of L’Ile Rousse and the sea beyond. Furnished as a contemporary family holiday home, the living area is spacious and airy with French doors that lead to the ground floor terrace and the wild hillside garden. The land on which Villa l’Ortale sits is terraced into the mountainside and filled with a perfumed blanket of olive trees, holm oaks and wild flowers. The house itself is cut into the rock to optimise the outside space and as there are only a few neighbours around, it gives the villa unrivalled seclusion whilst also having the convenience of the village facilities nearby. There is also a swimming pool at the side of the house and beautiful sandy beaches within easy reach, making this perfect for a family or couples holiday. The spectacular hillside location of Villa l’Ortale is sure to prove popular with guests who are looking for complete tranquillity within a short drive of the coast.
