This attractive family home is located close to Aleria, one of the oldest settlements on the island with a corresponding wealth of cultural and architectural treasures. By contrast, the villa itself is elegantly modern, with impressive vaulted ceilings and contemporary décor. The lawned grounds are fully enclosed, with three separate seating areas as well as a private swimming pool. The villa has lovely mountain views and feels part of the local community; there’s a working winery next door, and you can enjoy the comings and goings of the annual grape harvest in late September. The beaches of Padoule and Casabianda, with a couple of delightful beachside restaurants, are only 8-10 minutes away by car. Villa A Murza is an excellent base for exploring the north and east of Corsica, with many archaeological sites close by. It is also a local gourmet hot spot, with artisan wineries to visit and a couple of renowned seafood restaurants. Particularly recommended for those who may be on their second or third visit to Corsica and who want to discover Corte and the hinterland as well as the stunning beaches.
