Blog > Picks of the month

Each month, we select a handful of our favourite properties that deserve some time in the limelight. Here are our top picks for October...

Casa di Pruno

Tarrabucceta | Sleeps up to 4

If you’re looking for a charming property for a couple or small family in southern Corsica, within an easy drive of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio and the famous beaches this part of Corsica is known for, then your search may be over. Casa di Pruno is an open-plan, one floor property with a homely feel and is surrounded by its private garden and olive trees. The stunning mountain views are best enjoyed from the private pool or outdoor summer kitchen and although there are a couple of other villas in the complex, you’ll feel like you are miles from anywhere.

Studio Castille

Calvi Citadel | Sleeps up to 2

It’s not every day you get the opportunity to stay in a citadel, and this age-old house is a wonderful treasure. It may be compact, but it has a modern comfortable interior and the most spectacular views of the Mediterranean best soaked up from the patio.

With a superb central location in Calvi, you are within walking distance of everything Calvi has to offer, but (and it’s a small but), due to the location of the apartment in the citadel, there are several stairs and cobbled streets to negotiate. If this isn’t a problem for you then this property is an absolute gem, and you won’t be disappointed.

Villa Joseli

Oletta | Sleeps up to 6

A delightful villa, perfect for a family with younger children as the large garden gives plenty of space for little ones to play and run around and is completely enclosed. The summer kitchen with wood burning oven and gas barbecue plus the large swimming pool, terraces and dining areas make the most of outdoor living. The beach at La Roya is just a 3km drive away as it the bustling town of St Florent, while shops and family-friendly restaurants within the village of Oletta, are an easy stroll away.

La Petit Citaj

St Florent | Sleeps up to 2

A perfect bolt hole just for two. Located in St Florent, just a 10-minute walk from the marina, is this beautiful townhouse, which has been lovingly restored and transformed into a fabulous space for a couple. There are some steep stairs within the property so it’s not best suited for those with mobility difficulties. The central location is superb and means you are within walking distance of everything St Florent has to offer, while the small private pool is simply the icing on the cake.

Hôtel Acquale

Calvi | 4-star hotel

Part of our Calvi collection, this modern hotel boasts a great location on the hillside above the town, just a stone’s throw from Quai Landry and the stunning curve of Calvi beach. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and of varying sizes, and we would recommend upgrading to a higher floor room to make the most of the stunning views of the citadel and Calvi Bay. Venturing out into Calvi and finding eateries and shops is easy from Hôtel Acquale – the walk back up to the hotel is, however, a little more taxing!
