Last Minute Summer Special in Corsica
The French call Corsica L’Île de Beauté for its lush, green hillsides and sweeping plains leading down to a crystal blue ocean. The island is never more beautiful than in the summer, when the hills are green, the sun stays up until 11pm and the balmy warmth of the Mediterranean envelopes the coastline, which is also why Corsica can be prohibitively expensive to visit during the high season. However, Aregno Windmill, the latest addition to the Boutique Homes collection of modern vacation rentals and small hotels is currently renting for the incredible price of 790 euro per week. Trust us, you will not find a better deal – or a more charming, romantic lodging – anywhere in Corsica. Read on to learn more about this very special place.
Aregno Windmill is tucked away on a secluded hillside 10 minutes from Calvi airport and the beach. The name isn’t a pun – this really is a historic Corsican windmill that was once used to press olives into famous Corsican olive oil. It’s a true classic and a part of the history of the island.
The outside gives the impression of a typical Corsican stone house, but the interior has been renovated with all modern amenities, chic furnishings, and a contemporary, sleek design scheme. It’s a step through history from traditional construction methods to modern style.
The hillside location of the Windmill makes for amazing views. An outdoor lounge, kitted out with comfortable chairs, sofas, and a communal table, offers the perfect place to relax and drink in incredible panorama of sky, earth, sand, and sea.
You may be wondering what the catch is. A historic property, beautifully appointed, in one of the world’s most expensive vacation spots for such a small sum? Well here it is: Aregno Windmill, through the summer, does not have electricity. But don’t think of it as a downside. A lack of electric light in the summer months, when the sun stays up until late in the evening, is hardly a problem. Oil lamps and candles are provided, as well, which are much more romantic and atmospheric than lightbulbs, and there’s an on-site generator that can be run a few hours a day.
You can have a truly authentic, romantic, rustic holiday in one of the world’s most beautiful places for less per night than a stay at a motel in Las Vegas. It’s an amazing special and we encourage you to take advantage while you can – spots are filling up. Book your stay now.
