About Tony McGorrigan

I'm Tony McGorrigan who has been going back and fore to Corsica since 1994. I fell in love with this beautiful island at first sight. After a number of years it was decided that the right thing to do was to buy a property on the island. Eventually, we came across the new development at Alba Serena and bought this Villa. It and its setting is commensurate with the beauty of the island.

Security message. Please note that I have no agent in this country (in Corsica SECIC are my managing agents) and all bookings are direct with me - never through anyone else. I will never ask for any payment to be made out to anyone other than to myself - A.D. McGorrigan.

Tony McGorrigan purchased this villa in 2009

Spectacular house and location

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be better, walking distance to the beach, but also to so many local stores (bakery, butcher, fishmonger, etc. all selling/serving local produce/products).

A 15 minute ferry ride takes you from Porticcio (where the house is) to Ajaccio. We barely used our car during the entire week.

The house is better than the pictures: the landscaping is luscious, it is clear someone went to a lot of efforts. The kitchen is top of the line.

The place was immaculate, perfectly maintained.

We felt at home. We will be back.

Lovely villa perfect for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous location for a relaxing break. The villa was excellent and so perfectly equipped for 4 couples to feel very at home and not overcrowded at all. There is nothing better than sitting around the pool with a nice cold drink, watching the boats in the the bay or the glorious red sunsets. There were more shops and restaurants in Porticcio than we expected and easy access by boat to Ajaccio. A lovely holiday thank you Tony.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

3 couples from Norway has a wonderful week in Tony's villa in Porticcio. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed, very comfortable and had a very nice view to the sea and Ajaccio. Just a few minutes walking distance to shops, restaurant and a nice beach.

And Tony the owner did his best to give us a good holiday, and we thank him very much for all help. So we can highly recommend this to everybody.

Perfect for a five-star holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a terrific holiday here (Aug 23 - Sept 6). The villa is spacious, modern, clean and comfortable, plus many thoughtful extras such as a DVD library, CD players, bikes etc. All the fittings and furnishings are high quality. Kitchen very well equipped. Views from the huge sitting room and pool area across the bay are amazing: by day there is the bustle of boats on the water as you look across to Ajaccio on the other side, and by evening a superb sunset. The pool is sparklingly clean, with ample sun loungers and tables and chairs for outdoor dining. The location is very convenient: fifteen mins by car from the airport, and a five minute stroll to restaurants, supermarket, boulangerie, etc. The beach is also just five minutes away. The Porticcio bay is great for watersports, boat trips and ferry to Ajaccio, but quieter sands are only ten minutes by car away to the south. To get further afield means a bit of a drive, but we had very rewarding days out at Propriano (for skydiving), Bonifacio (spectacular coastal scenery) and Corte (dramatic drive through mountains). We had a fantastic family holiday on this beautiful sunny island, and you will not find a kinder or more helpful owner than Tony, who went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. Highly recommended.
