What We Think
Positioned next door to Casa Matteu, Casa Blu is a little gem and a real favourite with our guests. The property nestles on the hillside, just above the village of Figari, and offers a convenient location for those wishing to combine the comforts of a private villa with the choice of fine beaches nearby. Carefully arranged with a number of lovely touches and attention to detail, the villa offers modern and spacious accommodation on one level – ideal for couples and small families alike. The real focal point of Casa Blu is its fabulous pool area: it has ample terrace space with an abundance of lush palms, olive trees and Mediterranean plants, and a generously sized swimming pool. Within this oasis-like setting, there is also a choice of seating and dining areas, from where you can enjoy the far-reaching views and the fabulous sunsets. The owners live next door to the villa – they will greet you with a warm welcome (usually along with Corsican delicacies or a bottle of wine!) and will always be on hand for local tips. For an evening out, try the restaurant U Fuconu in Figari, popular for its traditional live music and homemade dishes, and if you want to venture further afield, the vibrant towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio are approximately 20 minutes’ drive away.
