Why Michael and Marie Catherine Hirst chose Porticcio
We fell in love with this house on our first visit. We were especially attracted to the stunning view over the sea towards the Isles de Sanguinaires which is wonderful in the morning for breakfast and with the sunset in the evening. We also particularly liked the proximity to the beach and Porticcio as we wanted our children to be able to come and go independently. The house is bright with light flooding in through windows and the sea breezes ensure that the interior remains cool, even in summer.
What makes this Villa unique
The views from the terrace, the garden and most of the windows are very special - uninterrupted sea views with the Isles de Sanguinaires clearly visible 15 Kms away, and Ajaccio 5 Kms across the bay. From dawn until dusk there is always some activity on the sea - boats arriving from the South of France, yachts, dinghies, motor boats and windsurfers. The views are absorbing and interesting from breakfast through to dinner and sunset. The beach and Porticcio are within a few minutes walk, downhill all the way there and a climb uphill for the return. Alternatively driving is quicker and parking usually easy.
