About the villa

In a secret and secluded spot,  this quirky little cottage has much to recommend it. An escapist idyll, it makes a gorgeous honeymoon hideaway, available year-round. With tranquil views over Ortolo’s Valley to the blue of the Med beyond, it sits amid lawned gardens, just 3km from the sweeping white sands of Domaine de Murtoli’s private beach. And, as one of just thirteen villas sharing the huge estate, Bergerie Albizia comes with additional attractions, from a host of sport and leisure activities, to an intriguing restaurant occupying a cave, and two further restaurants, refreshing massage treatments in the al fresco spa, and helicopter sightseeing for sublime views of land and seascapes.

The stone-built cottage is simply styled in an open-plan studio layout, with a double bedroom area and, in a very rustic country kitchen, a dining area and unique fireplace with a smoothed rock hearth.  This is complemented outdoors by an equally characterful summer kitchen, with a raftered roof and polished brick floor. And, a fabulously functional feature, the villa’s six-metre plunge pool is surrounded by rocks and boulders.

About the area


Average weather

At just eighty three kilometres wide and 183 long, the island of Corsica contains a startling variety of unspoiled landscapes—from Porto’s UNESCO-protected bays and Corte’s rugged mountains, to rolling vineyards, gingerbread beaches, and sun-parched maquis (scrublands), interspersed by rippling brooks and chestnut forests. There is history too: Napoleon Bonaparte was born in Ajaccio, and Lord Nelson lost his eye in Calvi. And Italy is never far away on a Corsica holiday: be it at Bonifacio, in the south, which sits closer to Sardinia than France, or in the island’s Mediterranean culinary specialities.
