Villas in Porto Vecchio

Located on the south of the island, this harbour town has become known as a mini Cote d’Azur - a bustling resort with designer boutiques, glamorous speedboats and fine French cuisine. Showcasing all the best traits of a classic summer holiday destination, our villas in Porto Vecchio are great for families and couples alike. Boasting beautiful Blue Flag beaches, this is the place to be if you’re seeking a sanctuary of sun and sea. Picture-perfect Palombaggia is arguably one of the most famous stretches of sand on the island, with stunning powder-white shores and sparkling blue seas. Take a stroll in the centre of this historic and traditional town and enjoy a local tipple in the charming square, or a meal at one of the many pavement cafes. From its hillside perch, Porto Vecchio enjoys breathtaking views of the dazzling Porto Vecchio Gulf and the surrounding countryside. The lively marina and its fantastic facilities cater to your every need, with a wide range of restaurants, shops and nightlife hotspots. You choose the pace of your Corsica villa holiday. Make a splash with wet and wild watersports, soak up the local atmosphere with some live music or take a road trip to nearby Col de Bavella. One of the most dramatic passes on the island, soak up the showstopping views across extensive forest and magnificent mountains. It’s a great place for a panoramic picnic!
