About Diana Lumsdaine

We have enjoyed family holidays in Corsica for over 30 years and appreciate the unique character of the island.

Diana Lumsdaine purchased this villa in 1987

Why Diana Lumsdaine chose Corse du Sud

Corsica charms visitors with its glorious countryside and coastline and has avoided being spoilt by mass tourism. Ideal for "off-season" holidays, it offers relaxation and sunshine in abundance. Ideal for independent travellers who may enjoy walking and exploring or for sun worshippers who want to lie out on the nearby beaches or just relax on the terrace. Corsica is a hikers and cyclists paradise with plenty of trails and climbs to challenge and reward!

What makes this villa unique

Walking distance to local restaurants with a variety of dining options from pizzas to Corsican and international cuisine including two nearby luxury hotels with 'fine dining' restaurants. Local shops and supermarket offer a wide selection of food for self catering. Two local butchers offer daily 'takeaway' prepared meals or BBQ meats and accompaniments. Speciality shops cater for all tastes and include artisan bakers, a fishmonger and greengrocer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tinarella, it was perfect for our needs. Corsica is a very pretty island and certainly lives up to its name. The villa was very well equipped and comfortable, it was a treat to return there after a busy day, to sit and enjoy a drink on the terrace and look out over the bay. I am missing it already. There are many other places that we would love to have visited but a week was just not long enough!

We thank you again for the use of the villa and look forward to returning again soon.

Fabulous in every way

  • 5 of 5

Corsica more than lived up to our expectations and the house was a large contributor to that fact. It is extremely well equipped and comfortable with the most magnificent views that you never tire of. To wake up with the view across the bay every morning is amazing!. Porticcio is an excellent base for a holiday on Corsica - close to the airport without being bothered by aircraft noise, easy access to Ajaccio without being in a bigger town, all the facilities you need for a holiday are on hand with some great beaches and a massive range of fantastic restaurants.

A top week in Corsica

  • 5 of 5

This was a magical week away. The villa was exactly as described and has clearly been well maintained for guests' benefit

It is a fabulous base to explore all the different local beaches as well as the mountains that provide such a grand backdrop.We followed the advice of a previous reviewer and went to Chez Paul, a restaurant up in the mountains serving real Corsican fare. Well recommended.

I don't know about the rest, but this part of Corsica is unspoilt, and the villa made for a great week.

Thank you Diana.

Tranquil Tinarella

  • 3 of 5

This was our seventh trip to Tinarella which says it all. A well positioned villa within hearing distance of waves on the beach below and easy reach of daily shopping, restaurants and clean, quiet beaches. We have already booked for next year.

Customer Review. Couple

  • 5 of 5

Excellent pre.travel tips & personal advice from the owner. Clear travel directions & easy arrival plan.

The villa was very clean and welcoming, generous provision of all essential goods.

The living space was wonderful, accurate description of beautiful sea views.

A great base to explore fabulous local beaches.

Enjoyed a train trip into the mountains & a road trip to Bonifacio.

Enjoyed the recommendations for butcher & patisserie.

Ate twice at Le Rivoli, excellent food & customer service, all within walking distance of the villa!

Thank you for a lovely holiday, a week was not enough....feel sure we will be back!

Wonderful holiday - Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tinarella lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The location, facilities and service were excellent. Everything as expected and more. We enjoyed trips into Ajaccio and Bonifacio particularly Ajaccio using the ferry from Porticcio.

Excellent beaches all round we enjoyed snorkeling the water so warm and clear.. Local facilities are excellent - butchers and bakers as outlined by Diana are first class. We found the standard of food very good and particularly enjoyed La Rivoli -walking distance form the villa and Da Mamma in Ajaccio the charcuterie in particular. All in all can't wait to go back
