What we like about this property

This pretty stone cottage is a beautiful example of an old Corsican bergerie – or sheep barn. However, it’s been given a stylish makeover in lovely ochre tones, with washes of color, brick features and tiled flooring. The perfect nest for romantic getaways, it’s also a delight for the senses, with an abundance of gourmet foods, local wines and luxurious natural toiletries. There are two additional accommodations available to rent on the same property (see link below).

Description

This charming stone cottage is one of three bergeries on a farm in southern Corsica. Located in a pretty garden full of ancient olive trees and one large oak, it’s perfect for a romantic getaway.

The property retains all the charm of its original features, but has been given a modern spin – with a lovely swimming pool and deck, as well as all the amenities you would expect. The space is cosy, with one bedroom, a bathroom and an open-plan kitchen and living area.

But it’s the details that really make this property special. The toiletries are homemade using extracts from local fragrant shrubs, and are presented in glass bottles. Choose from wild fennel shampoo, myrtle and sweet orange shower gel, and soaps made from olive oil and immortelle flowers.

The owners shop in advance for guests, and re-stock every three days. A selection of breads and pastries is delivered for breakfast every morning, and occasional surprises are thrown in – such as cakes made from chestnut flour or gingerbread with Corsican honey. Jams are made from fruits found in the orchards or in the forests belonging to the estate, so guests can expect such delights as quince jelly, orange marmalade, fig or peach jam.

There’s also a vegetable garden, which guests are welcome to use during the summer season. Expect regular deliveries of tomatoes fresh from the garden, as well as melons, onions, cucumbers, courgettes, aubergines, and much more. Cheese comes from the neighbouring shepherd, farmhouse eggs and chickens from the valley, and cooked meats are specially sourced. 

And let’s not forget the wine cellar. Guests are invited to sample the unique flavors of the valley. Glasses of wine are drawn straight from the barrel, and culinary combinations are suggested.

Check out the La Moulin a Sartene  or Old School  for additional accommodations on this property.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Amenities include a television, cooker, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, and other small appliances. There is an outdoor barbecue, a bandits’ lair for children, as well as a wooden hut, a swing and other outdoor play equipment. 

During the Easter and October school holidays (and on request all year round), horseback rides are available for adults and pony/donkey rides for children.

A personal chef is also available, as well as a massage therapist. How about a relaxation massage or seaweed wrap under the oak tree, with dinner waiting for you when you’ve unwound?

AROUND

The property is located in the Ortolu Valley in southern Corsica. It is 15 minutes to Roccapina beach, 20 minutes to the lovely old village of Santène, 45 minutes to Bonifacio, and 1 hour 15 minutes to the most stunning Corsican summits.

Closer to home, there are plenty of walks starting at the property. Take a walk to the hamlet of Mola, or try something a little more strenuous and take in the stunning views. Mountain bikes are provided for guests, and circuits are clearly indicated. You can ride across the estate or as far as the river for a swim.

  • Matthew Wayner, November 3, 2017

    Absolutely fantastic! We stayed here the last three nights of our 16 day honeymoon in Corsica, and it was the perfect end to our trip. Julie is so friendly and helpful, and the property is gorgeous. Even though the stone barn is really close to main buildings, the setting makes it feel like you’re not close to anything.
    We loved it!
