What We Think
Perched on the mountainside in a prized position, Bergerie Olivella exudes authentic Corsican charm and character. Originally a farmhouse in the 1850s, this idyllic stone cottage is older than its neighbour Bergerie Murtetu, but the impressive conversion gives it a luxury feel. Draped in vines and built from local stone, Olivella offers a secluded setting surrounded by olive trees and fragrant herbs. The interior is decorated in rich, earthy colours with wooden beams and wrought iron furniture enhancing the elegance of its Corsican style. Each room is beautifully furnished with the owner’s personal touches offering all the modern conveniences expected from a home-away-from-home. The terrace lies in a prominent position next to the house and offers the perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy an al fresco meal whilst taking in the sunset. Above the bergerie, the free-form pool with a whirlpool bath gives a privileged feel and provides sweeping views of the Valinco Gulf through the scented maquis and lush trees. For those who can tear themselves from this idyllic setting, the historic village of Olmeto is only a 5-minute drive away offering a good choice of restaurants whilst the harbour town of Propriano is only 15 minutes’ drive away. The sandy coves of the Valinco are also only a short drive. Bergerie Olivella provides high quality accommodation in a truly sought-after location.
