Why Laura Needham chose Serra-di-Ferro

This house is a family built property and has been in the family for over half a century. This is a very relaxing place where one unwinds and spend hours gazing at the ever changing landscape and starry sky. In the spring you will find the garden full of wild flowers, in the summer you will enjoy a siesta in the hammock , in the autumn you will enjoy beautiful colours and in the winter you will curl in front of the fire and admire the snow caped mountains...

What makes this villa unique

The house is conveniently located above the village which means that you enjoy the peaceful landscapes and yet you are 10mn from the beach.

Nice house with a fantastic view. Everything is perfect. The beach, 5 minutes by car, is one of the most beautiful in Corsica. And Francesco, the owner, always makes his best to help you having the nicest Holidays. I fully recommend it!

Stunning location and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa last summer and are now looking to book it again for next year!

The house was well appointed, we found everything in the kitchen to cook with, even did some baking with the children! All the bedroom were comfortable. The views from the terrace and garden are truly outstanding,. The housekeeper was very helpful when we arrived and even indicated to us places to visit nearby. The photos are a good representation of the place. We would very much recommend this villa.

Beautful Views in Peaceful Location!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable week at this lovely villa and thank you to the owner for the bottle of prosecco! We had a wonderfully relaxing time with plenty of walking, eating and drinking! We walked to Cupabia beach (the short and long ways round!) which is idyllic and also to Porto Pollo where we ate lunch at A Pignata (the food there is unbelivably good but expensive!). The Spar supermarket in Porto Pollo is very very good but worth noting for Sunday arrivals that it closes at 1pm on Sundays. We ate at both restaurants in Serra di Ferro which are within easy walking distance.

The south west coast of Corsica beautiful and unspoilt and we much enjoyed our visits to Bonifacio (allow plenty of time as traffic queues very slowly getting into the town) and Sartene.

A few slightly disappointing things at the villa; we could not find the barbecue. I asked the housekeeper who said she didnt think there was one. She did find an electric grill plate in the lower kitchen area, but not a barbecue that we could cook on outside which we were really looking forward to ( the website specifies that there is one)..

The back door in the annex bedroom would not open (which we rather needed in the 30 deg. heat) as the key had rusted and would not turn the lock properly. (There are no windows in this room). I mentioned this to the housekeeper at the end of our stay.

On our arrival the housekeeper apologised for the 3 missing sun loungers which apparently had been broken by previous tenants.

All in all though a very pleasant stay! I would highly recommend this villa in such a wonderful location!

Owner's Response: Please note that we have replaced the broken deck chairs and BBQ therefore there is an Electric Tefal plancha which can be used outdoor as well as a new BBQ. In room 4 which is independent, there is a front door accessed from the courtyard as well as French doors to the back (facing the garden/sea). The lock to the French doors (on the garden/sea side) has also been fixed.

Beautiful views and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We went to Corsica towards to the end of the high season. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we were able to eat outside every day. The house is big and spacious with a beautiful terrasse and has really incredible views. It is a quiet place, very peaceful.

It is an ideal place to hike at this time of the year and you can join several path directly from the house.

You can walk to several restaurants.

The house is very comfortable and has everything you need to cook. It also includes a separate small cottage which is great if you have bigger kids or friends and want a bit of privacy. The owner was really lovely too!
