Situated among over 1,000 hectares of vineyards and rugged island countryside, this lovely stone house is full of rural charm, luxurious comforts and an interesting history. One of three original 19th-century out-buildings that remained from an abandoned turn-of-the-century wine estate, the houses, vineyards and ancient orchards have been carefully restored and continue to produce some of the finest varietals and olive oils in the region.
Rescued from disrepair with great attention to detail, the home was renovated with local materials and masonry techniques, and transformed back to its authentic style with rich patinas and paints, handcrafted tiles and fixtures and carefully selected period antiques. The main living room is open and cozy with a large fireplace and lounge area that sits off of the fully equipped eat in kitchen. You can enjoy breakfast here or better yet at the outdoor kitchen and dining area poolside with views across the valley.
The private pool features all the charm of the pools of yesteryear and is completely surrounded by a large grassy area and fragrant gardens of Corsican maquis that extend out from the house creating a sense of privacy and space. The relaxation area includes a hammam Turkish bath to complete your relaxing vacation.
Check out the Stone Barn or Old School for additional accommodations on this property.

Nestled above the coast in a wild valley at the southern end of Corsica, you are a twenty minute drive to the medieval village of Sartene. An imposing hilltop town carved from granite, the well preserved old town section is comprised of narrow passageways and streets, a central square and interesting castle ruins and is said to be the “most Corsican of Corsican towns.” You are just fifteen minutes from some of the best southern beaches including Roccapina Bay. Head south to explore the area between the small fishing town of Tizzano and the famed harbor town of Bonifacio at the southernmost tip of the island.
