Originally an old barn, the house is built of dry stone and fits in perfectly with its natural surroundings, a park of three hectares of Corsican maquis stretches down to the beach.
The entire house has the charm of historic houses, while providing modern today’s comforts. The integrity of its original design has been carefully preserved. The renovation has kept its distinct features like the solid wood ceiling, terracotta floors, and walls made of dry stone. The ambiance is one of true authenticity.
The large central living room, opens through tall windows onto a south facing terrace. The space extends into the kitchen which is fully equipped, in the purest Mediterranean style. The view over the bay of Valinco is breathtaking, enhanced by the presence of the indigenous aromatic vegetation and the cicadas. You can choose to have lunch in the cool blue-white tiles of the kitchen or on the terrace table which is delightfully shaded.
A hallway leads to three bedrooms, all equipped with two single beds which can connect to form a King Size (180), at your convenience. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with walk-in shower, separate toilet, and a dressing table or wardrobe.
The first opens onto the south facing terrace, which serves the room as the lounge. The second faces towards the eastside of the house, by a large window overlooking the greenery. The very spacious, master bedroom, has its own terrace overlooking the Mediterranean.
A comfortable outdoor lounge is protected by large umbrellas and allows you to enjoy the balmy evenings, while watching the reflection of the lights in the Propriano water. The garden is beautifully lit at night, thanks to carefully concealed lights installed beneath the terrace. The result is spectacular.
To the west, you see the emerald tiled pool, surrounded by stone as a natural basin hidden in the countryside. To bask in the sun, there is a wooden deck with lounge chairs inviting you to laze away from prying eyes.
Lastly, to fully appreciate the treasures of the Island of Beauty, a small shady path of 200 meters, takes you to two very small secret beaches, white sand and crystal clear water! A true pleasure!
This villa is ideally situated 6 km from Propriano to discover all the beautiful beaches of southern Corsica. Enjoy a lovely boat trip, visit the picturesque villages or take a hike in the beautiful mountain.
You can come by ferry from Marseille. To arrive by plane, you have the choice between the airport of Ajaccio or Figari, each of which are 60 kms from Olmeto.

Dear Melissa, we already send a complaint with relevant pictures of the Appartement to square break. The picture you advertise on your website do NOT represent the condition of the flat. We had mould, fungus and moisture on the bedroom and entry walls and bathroom ceiling. The second bed room could not be used! The smell was bad. The balcony was not in nice shape ( broken and ripped patition) the entrance of the flat looked very untidy. You advertised washer and dryer - the flat does not have a dryer! The iron could not be used because of burned plastic on the iron. Overall it was the worst accomodation we ever had.
The only highlight was the RM Myriam Viennet. She really did her utmost under the circumstances - great personality and customer service!
Beautiful, peaceful accommodation near Montmartre. Metro station, grocery store and bakery in the immediate vicinity. Good Communication.
We felt very comfortable.
Schöne, ruhige Unterkunft in der Nähe von Montmartre. Metrostation, Supermarkt und Bäcker in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Gute Kommunikation.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
It was initially used to, to book in another country something online and doing everything to write / read in English. The contact persons at Wimdu or Break Square but were great and extremely helpful.
The apartment was exactly as described: beautiful, well appointed, great bathroom, great kitchen, central, very well accessible location.
From the nursery from the Eiffel Tower can be seen from the window of the living room is a part of the dome of Sacre Ceur seen. The small Montmantrebus holds virtually on the doorstep.
Mostly we are but took the metro and got off at Blanche and booted. Goes well.
Supermarket at the bottom of the rue le Pic / Tholose on the way to the metro station Blanche.
The staff at Wimdu / Square Break were in case of need (once it has carved out the fuse) to reach directly and have taken care of immediately, brought a solution immediately. Absolute superclass.
Greetings and have fun in Paris, Thomas
Es war zunächst gewöhnungsbedürftig, in einem anderen Land etwas online zu buchen und dabei alles in Englisch zu schreiben/lesen. Die Kontaktpersonen bei Wimdu bzw. Squarebreak waren aber klasse und extrem hilfreich.
Das Appartment war genau so, wie es beschrieben ist: Schön, gut ausgestattet, tolles Bad, tolle Küche, zentrale, sehr gut erreichbare Lage.
Vom Kinderzimmer aus ist der Eifelturm zu sehen, aus dem Fenster des Wohnzimmers ist ein Teil der Kuppel von Sacre Ceur zu sehen. Der kleine Montmantrebus hält quasi vor der Haustüre.
Meist sind wir aber mit der Metro gefahren und bei Blanche ausgestiegen und hochgelaufen. Geht gut.
Supermarkt am unteren Ende der rue le Pic/Tholose auf dem Weg zur Metrostation Blanche.
Die Mitarbeiter von Wimdu/Squarebreak waren im Bedarfsfalle (einmal hat es die Sicherung rausgehauen) direkt zu erreichen und haben sich sofort gekümmert, sofort eine Lösung gebracht. Absolute Superklasse.
Grüße und viel Spaß in Paris, thomas
The apartment was wonderful . Melissa was very nice. We would not hesitate to book this apartment again .
The apartment was located very beautifully and perfectly.
Die Wohnung war sehr schön und perfekt gelegen.
super nice big apartment, the sofa bed could be better, but really good location, close to the hot little shops with everything your heart begær.Tæt the metro, and plenty of eateries. Because of the holiday, a little trouble getting in touch with udlejerselsskabet.Men altogether lovely stay and a big thank you for Alpha, our contact from the square break. Highly recommended.
super dejlig stor lejlighed,sovesofaen kunne være bedre, men rigtig god beliggenhed, tæt på små lækre forretninger med alt hvad hjertet begær.Tæt på metro, og masser af spisesteder. På grund af helligdag, lidt problemer med at komme i kontakt med udlejerselsskabet.Men alt i alt dejligt ophold, og en stor tak til Alpha, vores kontakt fra squarebreak. Kan varmt anbefales.
Quiet street on the edge of the tourist area in the sixth, so there is more of a feel of being in a neighborhood. Metro stations nearby. Nice 1850s building with lift. Kitchen (dishwasher, washer and dryer) and bathroom recently updated and very satisfactory. The flat is owned by a woman in her sixties who apparently moves out when it is rented. It reflects her taste, which is gracious and elegant (and quirky). A very nice Parisian experience
The view from the balcony was breathtaking! The apartment is very modern and the Metro was not far away. To fill a supermarket around the refrigerator, was just around the corner.
Die Aussicht vom Balkon war atemberaubend! Das Apartment ist sehr modern eingerichtet und die Metro war nicht weit entfernt. Ein Supermarkt um den Kühlschrank zu füllen, war gleich um die Ecke.
Zentrale Lage, Supermarkt und Bäckerei gleich um die Ecke, Ca 500m zum eiffelturm. Gastgeberin freundlich, alles lief sehr unkompliziert. Parkplatz ist keiner vorhanden, allerdings kann man für 18€/Tag das Parkhaus des Supermarkt nutzen.
