The house itself is blessed with crisp, modern interiors and huge French windows overlooking the coast and the mountains, making the open-plan living area a great vantage point. A mix of soft tones and comfortable furnishing has been used by Villa Kallisté's owner, Jean-Luc, who has focused on creating a relaxing, sociable space for his guests. Other benefits include a well-equipped kitchen, two en-suite bedrooms, air-conditioning and Wi-Fi.

If you tire of lazing by the pool, you’re only a short drive away from the nearest beaches and bustling quayside of Propriano. For the more active, there are miles of walking trails in the area, as well as ample water-sports opportunities. 

Please note: there are horizontal railings along the terrace area for safety purposes, therefore the property may be unsuitable for young children.

About the Local Area


Slightly inland from Propriano, you will reach the peaceful hamlet of Olmeto, a beautiful granite village with outstanding views and a captivating past. Situated close to the sea yet still retaining a quaint atmosphere, the village boasts sweeping views across the forest and maquis-covered hillsides down to the coastline below. It is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life whilst having an excellent range of facilities and beautiful beaches within a short drive away.


There are a number of town beaches including the main beach Hotel du Phare by the Hôtel de Valinco and the Plage du Lido which is supervised in July and August. The busiest of which is the Plage du Phare which has golden sand and a selection of cafés and restaurants. It can get very crowded during peak season. There are several other beaches along this stretch which are less accessible but worth the venture.

The stretch of coast here has a number of secluded bays, coves and larger beaches, with varying degrees of accessibility. Fringed by granite boulders, bordered by crystal clear water and with superb views across the Valinco gulf, they all offer a superb setting for swimming, snorkelling or simply whiling away the hours relaxing on the beach. Take a picnic in the evening, the sunsets here are spectacular! 

Continue along the coast past Capicciolo and you'll find more beautiful coves and beaches in the Abbartello area. There are several good pizzerias and restaurants along the coast to stop for a drink or a bite to eat. The paths are easy to find as the beaches are only 25m or so from the main road. 

Porto Pollo
This is a busy little resort set on a gorgeous bay with a lively marina and a sheltered sandy beach. The gently shelving bay is lapped by very clear water, making it ideal for families with young children. The water sports here are excellent and it boasts some of the best diving in the region.

Plage de Cupabia
A beautiful beach, beyond Porto Pollo, which is fairly crowded during high season but quiet during lower season. There is a café which sells ice-creams and drinks on the beach and a windsurfer hire operator. 

Located in the pretty village of Campomoro, this beach has fine sand and turqoise shallow water making it an ideal choise for children and for snorkelling.

Portigliolo beach
A wonderful, sandy beach only about 20 minutes' drive from Propriano. To get there follow the road out of town towards Sartène and turn right heading towards Campomoro. After 3km you should park and take the small path towards a long sandy beach greatly appreciated by children as the water is shallow – at least on the first part of the beach. If you go further to the right, take care as the beach shelves steeply into the water.
