What we love

The Murtoli estate, where this villa is located, is just gorgeous, and offers the best of both worlds – an untamed, breathtaking and amazingly tranquil Corsican landscape, literally right on one of the best beaches on the island, but also luxury, charm and character. The perfect place for relaxation and enjoying time as a group, and offering the most flexible accommodation options we have come across. We think the photos of Murtoli speak for themselves.

The Property

Murtoli is unique and extraordinary, an absolutely beautiful place that offers luxury, peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting – a truly authentic Corsican experience.

A working arable and pastoral farm, there have been farm buildings in this valley since the 16th century. The current farmer has renovated and converted some of the beautiful shepherd’s houses and sheep folds throughout the estate into the most beautiful rustic villas, where luxury accommodation and warm service have retained the character of each property and are set against the perfect backdrop of the coast, maquis and valley.

Staying at Murtoli is all about experiences – from trips in a traditional fishing boat, dinner under the stars or taking a basket to the kitchen garden and filling it with whatever is fresh for you to pick – rosemary, basil, strawberries, aubergines, courgettes, vine tomatoes, apples….
The houses are spread throughout the estate, separated in ‘Cove’ which are literally right by the amazing private deserted white sandy beach, ‘Valley’ – a tiny hamlet of beautiful houses surrounded by the hills in the valley by the Ortolo River and looking out over the meadows, fields and the sea, and finally ‘Maquis’ – fabulous building set in the midst of the fragrant Corsican maquis.

There is a real focus on dining at Murtoli, using fresh local produce, often from the kitchen garden, olive oil from the Muroli mill and with various locations to choose from, from The Grotto – a magnificent natural cave which has been turned into a lovely restaurant, The Beach – converted from a fisherman’s shack and located right on the beach, or various options in your own villa.

You will never be short of things to do at Murtoli – although there is certainly an emphasis on doing as little as you like in this truly relaxing place! From a fabulous (partly outdoor) spa, horesriding, hunting, fishing, walking….or just relaxing on the beach or by your own pool. Perfect!

A charming sheepfold with a traditional vegetation-covered roof. The pool cut into the rock, like a hanging basin, looks out over the entire valley and to the sea on the horizon.
