A stylish contemporary villa set on the hillside just above Algajola, U Ciocciu offers sweeping views across the maquis-carpeted mountains down to the shimmering coastline below.
U Ciocciu has been beautifully decorated and designed by the owners to bring that home-from-home feeling – warm colours and quality furnishing fill the interior, while large picture windows lead to a number of lovely terraces and patios around the house.
Set slightly away from the villa, the swimming pool has its own summer kitchen and offers fabulous views across the sea and the perched village of Sant’Antonino. The setting here is truly wonderful, surrounded by scented gardens filled with citrus plants, oak and olive trees - it's hard to imagine a more relaxing hideaway.
Spend your days sampling the local produce in the nearby hillside villages, browsing the cafés and little shops of L’Ile Rousse or go beach hopping along the coastline before returning to U Ciocciu for apéritifs, sizzling barbecues and superb sunsets.
Below the house is a former shepherds’ trail which is a pleasant half-hour walk up to Sant’Antonino, while about a 10-minute drive away is Aregno Plage and the seaside village of Algajola, with its choice of lovely restaurants.
Please note: this property may be unsuitable for young children due to horizontal railings along the terrace and pool area.
