Maison Paraso

Ville-di-Paraso, Corsica, France
A Contemporary Spin on Corsican Village Life

This simple, architect-designed house in Ville-di-Paraso proves once again that less can be more. A two-bedroom home conceived by a ceramic artist and her animator husband, it was brought to life by local architect Philippe Charbonneau.

The house is situated on a hillside in the heart of this tiny Corsican village, close to the village church and its soaring clock tower. Approach it via a small road and park right in front of the gate. At first glance, the structure is a simple box, but as you descend, it expands.

Walk down the slope to the first level and enter a light-filled, open-plan room that holds the living area and an elegant kitchen bar. The space opens onto a terrace that overlooks the tree-filled hills, making it the ideal spot for afternoon reading, alfresco dining, or evening aperitifs. 

There's one bedroom and a bathroom on this level, but follow the stone path down and you'll find a lower, independent level. This has one additional queen bedroom, bathroom, and an extra room with a day bed that is suitable for a young child. 

Both spaces are minimally furnished, with tiled floors, white walls and French windows, but the owner's hand-built ceramics give the space an elegant gallery-like feel. 

This vacation home for rent in Corsica sleeps up to four guests, making it perfectly suited for a family with two older children (over 14 years only), or two couples. 


AROUND

Ville-di-Paraso is a tiny village in the countryside of northern Corsica or Haute-Corse, overlooked by the hill town of Speloncato. Within walking distance of the house, there's a grocery store selling local products, including bread, croissants, fruit, and salami, as well as a small bar that serves great pizza. 

The house is located within easy reach of L'Île-Rousse and the Parc Naturel Régional de Corse, which covers nearly 40% of the island. It's also about 20 minutes' drive from the coast, making the house a peaceful hideaway in peak season when the beaches can be crowded.

Be sure to take the drive along the Route des Artisans, which crosses through several charming Corsican villages like Pigna, Corbara and San Antonino. Le Clos Colombu the famous wine cave of Lumio offers a great look at the wine-making process and delicious tastings.
