the   HOOD 

Casa Santa Teresa  captures the loveliest times in Corsica  from spring to autumn, when sunlight glints off the fresh seas lapping the house's cove. Completely remodeled in 2019 by corsican talent architect Amelia Tavella, the villa offers an exclusive setting for amazing vacation gateway. Located beachfront in Ajaccio, the villa is facing the bay, on the trendy Route des Sanguinaires. You will enjoy a private access to a nice and tiny sandy beach, very quiet and with very few visitors. By the way, you are only 5 minutes walking distance from nice and local grocery stores, but also 20 minutes drive from the Airport. 

 

With turquoise seas and green mountainous inlands, Corsica is an island of contrasts and ancient culture.

 

Located along the southern west coast of the island, Ajaccio is mostly famous as the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte and remains Corsica’s main urban city. You will  enjoy either the cooking of locals restaurants, having cocktails at beach bars or shopping at the local farmer market or along the narrow streets.

Casa Santa Teresa is nested on the shore , facing the wide bay of Ajaccio. The Sanguinaires islands sit just off shore and  Capo di Feno beach is only 20 minutes  from the house and is one of the nicest beaches around.  On the opposite side of the bay, various beaches and snorkeling spots around Porticcio, Isolella  and Coti Chiavari. 

 

If you drive north, you will appreciate Cargèse, Porto and les calanques de Piana, which has breathtaking scenery. Also recommended are road trips to the famous torrents of Corte (80km), Porto Vecchio, with its white, sandy beaches (130km), and the white cliffs of Bonifacio (120km).

 

Or simply lie in the warm sun watching the ripples on the sea, perfecting the art of farniente.

Just a few steps from the water’s edge,  with the peaceful sounds and scent of the sea, it’s an unforgettable treat to experiment.
