The old medieval 'citadel' of Bonifacio and the fabulous golf of Spérone (18 holes) boarding the sea are nearby.

The villa has been visited and referred by the mirror.co.uk (villa mirta), a picture is showing the private swimming pool area. Review about the villa (name first was villa Mirta) on the mirror.co.uk when I was working with Corsican affair:

'....But it was to the South East we returned to a beautiful Corsican Affair property, Villa Mirta/Casa Aqua.


"How to get there?: Check out the low priced charter flights from the UK (easy jet) that run from April to October. Indirect flights are possible with stop at Paris, Marseille or Nice to Figari airport from the UK all year round, book a 'fly/drive' package. For those with more time who like to take their own car,...make it an adventure and drive to France and take the ferry right to Porto-Vecchio. Ferry timetables can be found on their website - ask us for links for both the French ferries and for the Italian lines. Also fly or ferry into Bastia or Ajaccio and drive 2 hours south.

The owner lives there in winter and lets it out in summer so everything is immaculate. It had a stylish open plan sitting room with large comfy sofas, and sliding glass doors on three walls.

Outside was a large sun terrace and a private warmed swimming pool which was both gated and had its own alarm – a godsend to parents. The pool area was integrated into several rock formations and surrounded by olive trees and myrtle bushes.

It was very private and quiet, but just a three-minute drive from the nearest beach."

A car is essential and we wasted no time returning to the cliff-top town of Bonifacio on the most southern tip, about 20 minutes’ drive away.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed a week in the villa and enjoyed every day in this specious house. It is nicely furnished, (with much attenction to detail!) and equiped with all the confort you need. The private, heated swimmingpool fitted into the natural surrounding is the highlight of the garden. Also the quiet location near Porto Vecchio is a big plus. Beautiful, white sanded beaches are just a few minutes away by car. The villa met fully our expectations. We can recommend it for relaxing holidays.

A fantastic villa - faultless!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for two weeks over June/July 2012. We have stayed in quite a few villas throughout Europe, and we were very impressed with Villa Dona Lisa.

Inside, the villa is very spacious, with a large living area with plenty of sofas and a big flat-screen TV. The kitchen has all the facilities and cooking implements you would need, and connects through to the dining table and living room in a large, open plan fashion. The villa is very clean - something that pleased us immensely.

Outdoors, there is a great table for al fresco dining, and there are many other little areas where you can get space from your family and friends if needed. The pool area has a great deck for sunbathing, and the pool is warm, clean and large enough for the kids to have a play. The whole outdoor area is very secluded and private, with well established trees.

The location of the villa is great - close to the fantastic Santa Giulia, Palombaggio and Rondinara beaches. You are very close to the great towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio, with the Alta Rocca and L'Ospedale within easy reach for a mountain walk if you get tired of the water.

Christian, the owner, is always available if you have problems, and very attentive to our needs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Dona Lisa, and recommend it to anyone looking for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, I've been very glad to meet your charming family, and the way you enjoyed your stay in Corsica, exploring and discovering many aspects of my island, no just seaside, but also mountainside and real traditional Corsica. Thank you so much to have been so friendly, I did appreciate this, and to have treated Villa Dona Lisa as well as it was yours, I think it's because you've appreciate the villa and feel just like it was your home away home.... Sorry again for my poor english, but facts are always better than many words.... A special word to Chris - What an ironman are you! climbing and falling hills among the corsican nature by jogging all around the villa in the early morning. Warmest regards, Chris

Wonderful villa - perfect holiday week

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the nicest holiday villa that we have stayed in. There were so many homely touches that we appreciated. Beautiful décor and fantastic kitchen for cooking. We loved the different seating areas in the garden especially the outdoor dining table where we ate lunch. Christian was very helpful and welcoming and we ate at some great restaurants on his recommendation. Corsica is a stunning holiday destination and we hope to return.

A very special sanctuary in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Having read all of the very positive reviews of villa Dona Lisa we decided to take the plunge and book a weeks break for our family with our 3 children - including 13 month old baby.

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the villa and Christian.

The villa itself has a very traditional appearance, harmonising beautifully with the stunning surrounding corsican countryside. The interior however is spacious and contemporary, finished to an extremely high standard with top-end fixtures and fittings - the best we have experienced by far.

The pool and BBQ area outside is beautifully designed and maintained with total privacy.

Nearby is Santa Giulia beach which is undoubtedly the best beach we have visited in Europe. You really could be in the Caribbean! You are even provided with a free parking ticket to the best car park.

Christian is the perfect host - very friendly and helpful yet totally discrete. He comes to clean the pool every morning at 8 but you don't notice apart from the beautifully clean pool!

Can't recommend highly enough!

A perfect villa, ideally located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a villa Dona Lisa, end August/early September. A good time to go: weather still great but not over powering heat, and perhaps not quite as busy as mid summer.

The villa is excellent, clean, modern (as in decor and furnishings, shower, kitchen etc), and spacious, making for a very practical but comfortable stay. We enjoyed the separate BBQ area and the pool is completely secluded from neighbouring properties.

The location is excellent, giving excellent links to Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. It was also convenient for accessing the mountains behind the Villa (Ospedale). Some lovely walks, once we had located a decent map! If you like walking and are staying here, I would recommend you research walks before you leave.

The beaches are just excellent, several not too far away, but our favourite was Santa Giulia, crystal clear waters whitch kept our 17 year old son very busy with snorkelling. If you have small children, this is a very safe beach.

Our airport for Corsica was Bastia, we thought that getting the return flight might make for a stressful drive, 8am check-in). In fact the roads were largely empty with a 5.45 departure from the villa. Pleasant drive in the end.

To conclude, if you stay a Dona Lisa, you will not be disappointed!

we have just got back spending 2 weeks in this amazing villa, it was absolutely beautiful. Very clean and comfortable, well equipped for keen cooks like myself and the view is breathtaking, we just did not want to leave. Thank you to Christian for being such a fantastic host, he was there for us whenever we needed anything.

I recommend this villa highly, we can't wait to go back.

Many thanks for making our first visit to this magnificent island so special 🙏򣰽򣹏🙏򣰽򣹏

So good we have to come back

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic island and the perfect holiday villa to spend our first holiday away from the children in 21 years!! Nestled into the hillside and surrounded by olive groves we were cut off from the surrounding area in perfect seclusion to enjoy the beautiful swimming pool and BBQ areas, beautifully decked and cunningly built into the indigenous boulders and trees that have landscaped the garden for generations. Santa Giulia beach is but a 5 minute drive away and what a find. Crystal clear waters, white sand and not a hotel in sight. Christian, the villa's owner was a delight and couldn't do enough to help if we needed him... even to help me reacquire my O Level French which has acquired Z level status over the past 30 years. Have laid the metaphorical beach towel on the sun lounger by the pool for the same time next year so no-one else can nab it! Looking forward to seeing you Christian, with friends in tow. Don't want to spread the word about it too much or we'll never get back... oops.

Hi, Villa DONA LISA is available for rent directly with me, after many years of collaboration with famous operators tour companies from UK as Coastline VIP Villas with fully success as one of the villas best seller!

Ideally located in a residential typical corsican village area, with plenty of fantastic corsican white sandy beaches all around! known as the most beautiful in Europe, they are all white sandy (Santa Giulia bay, is the closest one less than 5 minutes from Dona Lisa, there are also others fantastic beaches as Palombaggia, Rondinara.....) and porto vecchio centre the famous corsican balnear station, Porto Vecchio, south corsica, is one of the most sunny european spot.

The old 'citadel' of bonifacio and the fabulous golf of spérone (18 holes) boarding the sea are nearby.Golf: Fantastic Sperone Golf (Bonifacio), less than half hour away.

Recognised as one of Europe's best golf courses, the exceptionally scenic 18-hole Spérone really does have something special to offer. Regularly in the top 100 of Golf World's best it is definitely well worth the trip! As a Robert Trent Jones design (although his European partner Cabell Robinson did the actual work) the course combines 12 inland holes with gorse and heather, with six stunning holes along the coast and seaside cliffs.

As soon as you tee off you can enjoy sublime views of the glittering Mediterranean, the Lavezzi Islands and even the distant peaks of Sardinia. Spérone is a test for the best golfers - the fairways are wide, but the challenge arises on this hilly course when playing off the back or when the wind blows. To score well you will need to have every shot in your bag. If your handicap is not yet single figures, the course owners suggest that you play off the forward tees and simply admire the design and scenery.

Golf lessons are available, equipment can be rented and the Spérone hilltop clubhouse is also reputed for being a great pre or post game treat.

Although Corsica has no other 18-hole golf courses there are 9-hole golf courses, and Golf de Spérone can be perfectly combined with another Robert Trent Jones Sr masterpiece at the Pevero Golf Club in Sardinia. Situated on the Costa Smeralda, at the northern tip of the island.

Also Golf Lezza practice + (9 holes), 3 minutes away.
