Pick of the Month

A lovely four-bedroom villa that’s ideal for older families, located just 300m from Lucciana Beach.

 

Welcome Pack 

  • We provide our customers staying at this property with a welcome pack that contains water, orange juice, wine, beer, Corsican biscuits and snacks. To further assist your arrival, we also include some toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, dishcloths, washing liquid, hand soap, and salt and pepper.

 

A great addition to our collection, Villa California is a well presented four-bedroom villa that is built for holiday living. Large grounds surround this two-level villa. The outdoor pool area provides plenty of sunbathing space and a generous teardrop shaped private pool in a beautifully landscaped secluded garden, plus a large lawned area to the side of the villa ideal for family games or to steal a quiet moment away to enjoy your current holiday read.

Inside, the free-flowing downstairs living area offers high ceilings and spacious rooms. Decorated in neutral tones, they are light and airy with plush comfortable furnishings and offer access to the pool area through large balcony doors from both the dining and living room. The large kitchen is well presented with good facilities, and coupled with the utility room, you’ll have everything you need for your holiday home away from home.

The four double bedrooms are split equally with two situated on the ground floor, sharing a shower room and two on the first floor. Built into the rafters, the upstairs space is simply for the bedrooms and a second shared bathroom, but also benefits from a balcony which overlooks the dining area downstairs.

California’s location just adds the icing to the cake - with the protected eucalyptus forest on your doorstep, plus the convenient short drive from Bastia Airport means you will be enjoying a cold drink on the sunlounger in no time and with the beach being a three-minute stroll down the road you won't have far to carry your beach towel! Should you wish to try a different view for the day, the east coast has some lovely beaches you can explore, Bastia town is just a 30-minute drive away and if you don’t fancy cooking, you have a couple of restaurants within walking distance too.

 

 

Good to know

  • This villa is unable to accept children under six years of age

  • Due to being so close to the protected forest, there will be times where the electric planca will need to be used instead of the barbecue due to fire risks

  • No local charges to pay as the Taxe de Séjour is included in the price of your holiday

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

40km south of Bastia, lies the small village of Moriani Plage. Known as part of the Costa Verde, which is ideal for families, Moriani plage is centrally located. It is the largest of the Costa Verde offering a perfect place from which to explore the coastline. Due to its wetter climate the region is one of the most fertile areas, and boasts many vineyards and fruit farms producing lemons, clementines, kiwis and other citrus fruits.

BEACHES

Moriani Plage
The coastline of the Costa Verde nestles between the Castagniccia hills and the deep blue waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, and boasts a 14km stretch of golden sand with Moriani Plage as its main resort. There are various access points to the beach and several beach bars along this vast stretch. A couple of spots also offer water sports.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Visit Bastia
The old town of Bastia lies south of Place St Nicolas and surrounds the old port which should not be missed. It is overlooked by the high honey coloured Genoese citadel (quite a climb) and bustles with harbourside bars and restaurants. Wander through the old streets behind the old port to find the Place du Marché where there is a local farmers' market each morning.

Castagniccia
Going eastwards from Corté, over the mountain ridge that separates the Tavignano and Golo rivers, lies the very fertile region of the Castagniccia  (literally meaning 'small chestnut grove'), wherein lies over 100km² of primarily sweet chestnut forests. On a clear day, the altitude affords views over the Tuscan Islands and occasionally, the snow-capped peaks of the Alps are visible.

Cap Corse
On the west of Cap Corse, narrow roads wind above a dramatically serrated coastline, dotted with little coves, whilst the sea washes on the rocks below and woods and maquis outline the peaks above. A complete circuit of the Cap Corse will take you about four hours (without stops) and we recommend that you always drive in a clockwise direction so that you are always in the inside lane (the road can be narrow and winding and the drops are precipitous and rather scary!).

Erbalunga
Just past Bastia, approximately one-hour drive, the fishing port of Erbalunga on the eastern coast clings to a little jagged promontory, opal waves slapping against gaudy fishing boats. The pedestrianised village has many cafés and restaurants and a Genoese tower on the headland and is the home of a Jazz festival in August.
