Description

A stay at this luxury Corsican villa is the stuff dreams are made of. Villa Maquis is perched on the edge of Palombaggia beach, in beautiful Porto Vecchio. Hidden away in a private estate, and within stunning gardens, it’s perfectly secluded and peaceful; a real tonic for anyone who wants to escape normal life for a while.

Step inside the seven-bedroom luxury villa and you’ll find a light and airy space, inspired by Corsican and Cambodian interiors, with natural materials and a neutral colour palette that make a feature of the villa’s wonderful views and natural beauty. You can see the sea from almost every window here, and listen to the waves lapping the shore. It’s a wonderful place to relax quietly, but also makes for a fabulous space for a gathering with friends or for a big celebration.

The kitchen is open plan to the dining area, allowing for a sociable atmosphere while dinner is prepared and a long, leisurely meal afterwards. Adjacent is a spacious lounge, which opens right out onto the terraces so you can enjoy the gentle sea breeze as you put your feet up. In the evenings, or if you’re unlucky and get a showery day, there’s plenty of space to get together in the huge games room, which has a table football and table tennis, as well as a plasma TV screen and a film and book library.

But it must be said that the most magical aspects of this property are all in the outdoor areas. This truly is a villa where you can live a totally outdoor lifestyle. You can easily spend all the day in the infinity swimming pool and its pool house, lounging in the shade with a book and a long drink. Then there are the beautiful gardens, where the sea peeps out at you through the lush greenery, the laid-back outdoor dining and living rooms with outdoor kitchen and a barbecue area, and the fabulous alfresco activity area with its own bar and boules pitch.
