A traditional Corsican farmhouse set in the countryside of Regino valley with secluded grounds and a large private pool.   

Set in the countryside of the Regino valley below the village of Monticello and just a short drive from the beaches of L’Ile Rousse and Lozari, Villa Mimosa has been sympathetically designed with a rustic theme and neutral undertones to reflect the local architecture. Well-equipped and unfussy in style, it's the ideal place to retreat to the Corsican hinterland and is a great-value-for-money property.

The main villa has a spacious open-plan living/dining room with French doors opening out to a large sunny terrace and barbecue area, a good kitchen and three bedrooms. The annexe house which comprises two further bedrooms and a simple living / kitchen area can be added at a supplement, ideal if you need to accommodate larger parties or for extended families wishing to holiday together (call to book the annexe house).

The main focus here though is the garden - replete with Mediterranean plants, large private pool and plenty of sunloungers, the place feels wonderfully secluded. It's also the perfect location from which to explore the foothills of la Balagne with its network of hiking paths and scenic drives taking you from village to village, or the fabulous coastline with its string of beaches and charming old towns.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Beautifully positioned for exploring, or just immersing yourself in the relaxed Corsican lifestyle.

BEACHES

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 café’s, this beach is stepped and shelves quite steeply at the waterline. Please note in rough seas, beware with less accomplished swimmers and children.

L’lle Rousse
The is a busy one! Hundreds of sun loungers and parasols belonging to the café restaurants line the beach. If you're prepared to wander 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.

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.

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.

Festiventu
At the end of October, on Calvi beach, this festival celebrates everything connected with wind. Hundreds of kites and microlight aircraft displays on the beach coupled with concerts every evening has resulted in this festival attractive thousands of visitors every year.
