About Marion

Welcome to Corsica and the villa 'Marina Amata.'

We built this house as our main residence for our large family. Now we are retired and split our time between our children in mainland France and our children in Corsica.

Marion purchased this villa in 1980

Why Marion chose Porticcio

After having lived in the countryside near Ajaccio, we wanted and needed to live by the sea in Porticcio. Thankfully this was possible because Corsica benefits from many different types of beautiful terrain. Since having this house built in 1980, we wanted to keep it because of its incomparable charm and warm environment.

It can very comfortably accommodate a large family with many children. The villa's location means that everyone can get to where they need on foot and discover the luxuries of the nearby highly-touted seaside resort.

What makes this villa unique

One of the villa's strong points is its proximity to the beach and the Porticcio seaside resort — two places that are a short walk away. Another advantage is the panoramic view of the sea, which will make you feel as if you are actually looking at the water from a boat. In addition to the warm atmosphere of this very old, quality villa, its charm and quiet environment mean that the owners and renters get to know each other and get along well. As a result, they can live next to each other in peace throughout the year.

Furthermore, this villa is very isolated in a green environment but is not far (10 minutes) from the beach, shops, and other services.

It sits on a slight hill and is far from the road, so you will not hear any noise from the seaside resort.

The villa's architectural style is quite practical: 2 or 3 families can enjoy a nice vacation here together.

The wheeled gas barbecue makes the choice easy. This villa was renovated in 2007 and the fixtures and fittings meet quality living standards. It was given a three-star rating by the Porticcio tourism office, which means its quality and comfort has been certified by experts in the Corsican region. Moreover, all of the appliances and equipment in the villa are in very good working condition. To ensure that you are well taken care of, we have signed an insurance agreement that will cover any serious or urgent repairs that are necessary. There is also a professional maintenance service nearby that is available to fix any problems that may arise at the villa.

Maison très spacieuse pourtant tout le monde s y retrouve. Les enfants ont adoré la grande chambre qu ils surnommaient le dortoir. La vue est magnifique. Situation avantageuse pour découvrir la Corse. Le top des tops des propriétaires adorables qui n hésitent pas à vous donner des astuces.Malgré leur absence, ils veillent au bien être de leur clientèle.Ça donne envie de revenir.
