Tots Exclusive Family Deal
Something for the whole family, prepare for plenty of sun and fun in peacefully tranquil grounds; Villa Pierre Paul is delightfully modern with a light and airy feel, comfy stylish sofas and a lovely kitchen area with marble worktops.
The safely fenced off pool area has a generous infinity style pool looking out over the grounds and to the mountains in the distance; there are steps down into the shallow end for little ones to easily get in and out, and a ladder down into the deep end.
Most of your time will be spent outside at the insistence of the kids, who will love the play area with its own swing set. Older children can enjoy games on the football pitch, with table tennis and basketball hoops nearby.
The whole family can dine in the outdoor summer kitchen, which is fully equipped with a dishwasher and dining table; there’s further bar seating on the uncovered terrace, if you fancy catching more sun.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for evening meals with an outdoor pizza oven and barbecue, so you can enjoy the last of the day’s sun while the family eats.
Villa Pierre Paul has everything you need for a fun family holiday, but it is also conveniently close to shops and beaches; Porto Vecchio is just a 10 minute drive away and the famous Palombaggia beach is just an eight minute drive.
Self-Contained Annex Cottage
If you’re travelling with grandparents or another couple, there’s a separate cottage in the grounds where they can have their own space but still enjoy family time with the rest of the group.

This stunning villa is ideal for larger family groups, with three bedrooms in the main house and a separate annex cottage, which has a double bedroom, en suite and open plan living area.
A few steps lead up to the front door; as you walk through, you’ll find yourself in a hallway with the living area straight ahead.
Turning left from the hallway, there are two steps up leading to a corridor to the left, which continues on towards three bedrooms. The first double bedroom has plenty of space for a cot, with fitted wardrobes and a TV.
As you come out of the double room, the main shower room is on the left, with lovely grey tiles, twin wash basins and a shower; there is a separate loo next door, conveniently close to all of the bedrooms.
Continue down the corridor to a twin bedroom, which is kitted out with a TV, and next door to this a further double bedroom has a shower and wash basin in the room. The views out of the double bedroom look over the swimming pool and grounds.
Back in the hallway, you’re led through to the open plan living area, which is light and airy with cool tiled floors, a dining table and comfy sofas where there are patio doors leading out onto the terrace.
The kitchen area is modern with beautiful marble worktops and is fully kitted out with an electric cooker and gas hobs; the utility room is to the right and there’s also a door on the left of the kitchen leading outside.
Self-Contained Annex Cottage
For further guests, there’s a separate cottage, which is open plan with an en suite and plenty of room for a cot, perfect if you’re travelling with grandparents or another couple with a baby.
Immediately outside the villa, the terrace has a bench, which sits in the shade from the villa; two steps lead down to an outdoor utility area, which has a washing machine.
One step takes you down to a covered summer kitchen, which is fully kitted out with a dishwasher and dining table, meaning that you get to spend more time outdoors; there’s another raised table and chairs out in the open, if you’d rather enjoy the sun while you eat.
Locked gates lead on to the fenced pool area, which has a stunning infinity style pool looking out over the acre of grassy and tree-covered grounds.
The salt water pool has roman steps leading down to the shallow end for easy access, with a stair ladder leading into the deep end for parents and older children who are more confident in the water.
The rest of the grounds are accessed through a locked gate and there’s so much to keep the whole family entertained; little ones will love the play area, which has a swing set.
Next to this, there’s a sports pitch with football nets, table tennis and a basketball hoop, which older kids will love, as well as a boules pitch, which the whole family can get involved with.
There’s also a grazing paddock, where you’ll sometimes be able to spot the friendly resident horse named Oregan, who loves attention from guests.
A further outdoor dining table and pizza oven are located on these wider grounds, so the whole family can enjoy an evening meal in the beautiful grounds.
The world-famous beach of Palombaggia is just an eight minute drive from the villa, recently voted as one of the top 20 beaches in Europe by The Times.
The beautiful white sand is guarded by stunning red granite rocks and lined with pine trees; the piercingly blue sea deepens gradually, so it is great for little ones to splash about.
There are plenty of restaurants, bars and snack bars to visit here, and some offer sunbed hire.
The impressively photogenic beach of Santa Giulia is an eight minute drive from the villa. It sits in a horseshoe shaped bay and has shallow, translucent water, great for toddlers to play in.
Santa Giulia can be accessed by two roads, one which leads to the quieter northern parts of the bay, and another which descends to the Golfe de Santa Giulia past stunning views.
The villa is a 10 minute drive from Porto Vecchio on the southeast coast, which is home to idyllic beaches and breath-taking mountain scenery.
It boasts a historic Old Town, which leads down cobbled streets to designer boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Head to the tourist office, where you can get a free booklet in English, which provides a map of a short tour round the historic sights of the town.
Porto Vecchio is well-known for trendy clothes shops and also has a great range of book shops, gift shops and food shops. Remember that the shops will be shut between 12/12.30 and 3pm every day.
The Porte Genoise (or the Genoise Gate) frames the beautiful panoramic views from Porto Vecchio, looking out over the mountains, sea and surrounding valley and the harbour. In September, you can also watch the annual salt harvest from here.
At The Porte Genoise, a row of charming restaurants is set into the ancient city walls.
For a treat, make sure you take a trip to Gelateria L’art De La Glace, a delicious gelateria full of a wide range of ice cream flavours, at a reasonable price too.
Marina Porto Vecchio
Boat trips from the marina at Porto Vecchio travel to the nature reserve at the wild Lavezzi Islands and to Bonifacio on the southwest coast, which is worth a visit for its infamous buildings, which impossibly sit on the edges of limestone cliffs.
If you don’t fancy a boat trip, there’s also several restaurants and bars along the harbour side, with places to park the car; once a month, there is a local market.
The V.O Version Original restaurant at the marina is perfect for a pit stop with the kids as it is open all afternoon; they serve a great range of tapas and have a delicious tasting menu, too.
All summer, a kiosk on the marina sells tickets for a fun train that runs to the Old Town; kids will love the trip!
