We are extremely pleased to introduce Apartments Pinarello – a collection of ultra-chic apartments within a short stroll from Pinarello’s beautiful beach, on the shimmering coast of Southern Corsica. 

Managed by Hôtel le Pinarello, the apartments are stylishly designed in a contemporary style with soft tones and sleek furniture offering the same level of sophistication and attention to detail as in the main hotel. Each apartment boasts an open-plan layout, modern facilities and a terrace or balcony overlooking the gardens. Services also include mid-clean cleaning, two complimentary sunloungers and parasol on the beach and free access to the hotel’s pool, fitness and steam rooms.

The apartments are enviably located just 50m from the beach – an exquisite sweep of soft white sand crowned by a stately Genoese tower at the end of its long stretch – providing the perfect spot for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts. There's a handful of restaurants concentrated around the small harbour and along the beach, definitely worth trying if you fancy sampling the local fish specialities or simply taking in the views of the sea whilst sipping Corsican wine.

Only 10km from Porto Vecchio, you can easily venture out to town to browse the shops and meander through the narrow streets of the old citadel. Other local attractions in the area include the majestic mountains of Bavella, the renowned Domaine de Torraccia vineyards and the strikingly beautiful town of Bonifacio.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Situated 7km north of Porto Vecchio, Pinarello is renowned for its long sweep of soft sand, scented pine forests and crystal clear water – perfect for young families and water sport enthusiasts. The resort has a few cafés and restaurants along the beach and the bay is overlooked by a stately Genoese watchtower, providing the perfect backdrop for a beach holiday.

LOCAL BEACHES

Pinarello
This exquisite bay situated 7km north of Porto Vecchio with its fine sweep of yellow sand is more than worth a visit and was recently included in The Times' list of the best 20 beach holidays in Europe. While you're there you can check out the near perfect Genoese tower which dominates the peninsula. It has a long sweep of soft white sand and is backed by a pine forest, ideal for any members of the party who need shade. If there is a breeze on the day you plan to visit it is well worth taking a body board with you to surf some of the breaking waves. That said the beach is also great for younger children as there is a nice wide stretch of warm shallow water too.

San Ciprianu
Around 15 minutes drive north of Porto Vecchio, San Ciprianu is a beautiful half moon of white sand and turquoise water. Parking is available on the approach road to the beach or if you are lucky there may be space available in the smallish car park about 50m from the beach. 

Cala Rossa
A beautiful bay of reddish sand and turquoise waters. Fantastic to explore with its many tiny coves and because the area is not accessible unless you are a resident, it is never crowded. The perfect way to relax and appreciate the area.

Palombaggia
Arguably the most famous beach on the island, the beach at Palombaggia is one of Corsica's finest and therefore one of its most popular. It was recently voted one of Europe's top 20 beaches in a poll in the Times and as such it can be very crowded in peak season - and it's easy to see why. An exquisite blend of fine white sand guarded by huge red granite rocks and fronted with gorgeous blue seas, and lined with beautiful pine trees. 

Santa Giulia
Santa Giulia is another very popular beach and arguably the most photogenic of all the beaches in L'Extrême Sud - it sits in a magnificent horseshoe bay with its shallow and translucent water making it the perfect swimming spot for the little ones. Around 10-15 minutes drive from Porto Vecchio, this beach has a good selection of shops and restaurants and it is also very popular with water sports enthusiasts.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Old Porto Vecchio
The old Genoese walled town still seduces visitors with its picturesque narrow streets and the austerity of its high stone houses that are set within the Citadel's ramparts. Wander the ancient streets, the Borgo, where you can see the enormous twisted tree of the Place de la République, the 19th century church of St-Jean Baptiste and the gallery housed within the Bastion di A Funtana Vecchia. Experience live Corsican music and soak up the local atmosphere. Amongst the best venues is 'la Taverne du Roi', which is tucked away in the citadel of Porto Vecchio. Many restaurants also host a Corsican night once a week featuring a local band - look out for posters or ask your representative for up-to-date information.

Porto Vecchio Marina
Within a few minutes’ walk of the old town, the marina lined with cafés is an excellent place to enjoy a leisurely drink during those hot summer evenings. There is also a variety of boat trips on offer with tours around the beautiful coastline.

Horse riding
Go horse riding on San Ciprianu beach early morning, a truly memorable experience.

Water sports
There are a few places on Pinarello beach where you can practise sailing and windsurfing. You can also rent out a catamaran or a kayak – what better to explore the spectacular coastline of Southern Corsica?

L'Ospedale and Col de Bavella
Drive inland more than 1200m up to the spectacular Col de Bavella, one of the most dramatic passes in Corsica with stunning views across extensive forest, ocean and mountains. Also visit the surrounding mountain villages in the area. Try canyoning or take a dip in a rock pool in the rivers of the Bavella massif. There are many walks through the forests to the hidden waterfalls of the Alta Rocca, including Piscia di Gallo, or Cockerall falls. A short drive inland from Porto Vecchio will bring you to the Ospédale forest, and some great spots for a picnic.

Prehistoric settlements
Explore the prehistoric settlements of Casteddu d'Araggiu, just north of Porto Vecchio above the hamlet of Palavesa - a well-preserved site dating back from 1500BC. The views from here over the Gulf of Porto Vecchio are truly spectacular. Should you wish to venture further afield, the prehistoric sites of Cucuruzzu and Capula near Levie are also worth the detour.

Mountain restaurant
Try one of the mountain restaurants and indulge your tastebuds with mountain food. Amongst our recommendations are 'le Refuge' near the Lac de l'Ospedale or 'A  Pignata' in the village of Levie.

Bonifacio
At Corsica's southernmost point, the fortress town of Bonifacio sits in an isolated location perched high on a limestone plateau and surrounded by an expanse of maquis. Mentioned in Homer's Odyssey, the precipitous white cliffs overhang the turquoise waters below and are honeycombed with old watery grottoes. Established in 833, the old town is rich in history with its dramatic Citadel, ramparts and maze of narrow cobbled streets. The newer harbour has a more Italian flair with an abundance of cafés and restaurants dotted along the Quai Comparetti – the perfect spot to watch the yachts set sail.
