With an impressive interior, Casa Regina oozes style. From entering the villa, the layout flows seamlessly, providing open-plan living at its best. Large, airy rooms decorated in neutral tones are coupled with splashes of vivid colour presenting contemporary internal living spaces.

A magnificent dining table to seat 12 will host the entire family to enjoy group meals and a sleek modern kitchen completes the communal living space. A double bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, is also situated on this floor and as you ascend to the upstairs you will find a further four en-suite bedrooms with large balconies. To accommodate a further two guests, located just across the courtyard, within the property grounds, is a self-contained stone-built studio with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the pool area adds the icing on the cake. Descend the steps to the large decking area that surrounds a spectacular swimming pool. The elevated position affords breathtaking views across the Balagne region towards L’lle Rousse and the sea beyond. Every perspective uncovers a new aspect to focus on and provides an amazing backdrop to your daily activities.

The location of Casa Regina is ideal for those looking for a charming setting, yet close enough to town life to be able to explore and enjoy the area. Stroll into the village of Santa-Reparata-di-Balagna for your daily bread or enjoy an apéritif with the locals.

L’lle Rousse is just 6km from the villa. A 15-minute drive down to the coast provides you with an abundance of restaurants and shops to explore. The weekly market housed under cover on the edge of the square provides fantastic local produce for you to sample...grab some charcuterie for a delicious graze board for everyone to enjoy with apéritifs one evening.

For beach lovers, the Balagne region is blessed with a large choice. Our local resort team have lived in the region for many years and possess a plethora of knowledge which they love to share, giving you advice on the best spots and what not to miss.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Set inland from L’Ile Rousse, this ancient terraced village enjoys far reaching views over la Balagne coastline. With honey hued buildings and arcaded streets, the village has changed little over the years giving those staying here a glimpse of authentic Corsican life. Santa-Reparata-di-Balagna village itself has a handful of amenities, with others only a short drive away.

LOCAL BEACHES

Bodri
Just west of L’Ile Rousse, Bodri Plage is an unspoilt beach, a walk through the maquis and over the railway line. The walk is worth it, as the beach has almost white sand and a turquoise sea.

L’lle Rousse
The town beach of L'Ile Rousse can be very busy and has excellent facilities with cafés, restaurants and sunloungers lining the beach. If you're prepared to wander a little further, you can generally find a quiet spot. Another benefit of its size is that it is generally patrolled. It's a fine yellow sand beach and the water is a gorgeous clear blue. There are good opportunities here for water sports.

Baie de Giunchetu
A short walk further west, around the rocky Punta di Genebre you will find this beach. It is slightly less picturesque, but larger.

Lozari
A large beach which is rarely crowded. Access to the beach is between the turnings for Palasca and Belgodère and there is ample car parking. With a couple of beach cafés, this beach is stepped and shelves quite steeply at the waterline. Please note in rough seas, beware with less accomplished swimmers and children.

FESTIVALS
