This modern house is set deep in a tropical garden with citrus trees and a rose arbour, and has a pretty heated pool that looks almost like a pond. It’s just off the main road that runs along Corsica’s east coast and is a short walk up from the beach.
Gil and Geneviève are passionate about food, so breakfast is a treat: pastries, breads, homemade jams and Corsican honey, fresh fruit, eggs, local hams, cheese and tea infusions such as a fabulous local rooibos and homegrown pomegranate flower. They’ll also make picnics filled with Corsican specialities such as charcuterie, stuffed vegetables, local cheeses and a bottle of wine – enjoy them in the garden or on the beach.
Relax on your private terrace under the shaded pergola in the garden, or next to the pool. Favone is three minutes’ drive and restaurants on the beach, and you can hire kayaks and scuba diving gear or explore the coast by yacht. The historic town of Porto Vecchio is 40 minutes south.
