About the Owner

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.

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.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a week staying at this fantastic villa. Would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Corsica, it is conveniently located near to supermarkets and restaurants and also a beach. The villa is as lovely as it looks in the photos, it is a good size with four bedrooms each with it's own bathroom which was really handy (with 6 adults and 2 eight year olds) and the views over the bay are stunning. Also a big thank you to the owner Tony who could not have been more helpful!

Fabulous accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There is the most beautiful view across the pool to the bay and beyond to the hills above Ajaccio behind which there is a beautiful sunset every night. Closely located to food shops and restaurants there is no need to use a car if you don't want to. A ferry crosses to Ajaccio during the day. There are boat trips and other lovely beaches in the vicinity. It is a little hard to drive through the narrow gates in anything other than a small car but this seems a petty problem in the context of what is such a fantastic villa. The owner was very helpful and friendly . We have already recommended it to many friends and hope to return there. Many thanks for a superb holiday The Archer Family

Terrific villa

  • 5 of 5

The holiday was fantastic. The villa exceeded our expectations and four adults were really comfortable there. Spacious and elegant, great decor and a very high standard of furnishing and fittings. No complaints at all. Taken all round, the best villa we have rented over many years of visiting Corsica, Spain and Greece. Comprehensive and helpful information pack provided with great attention to detail. Loved being able to simply stroll down to beach, supermarket and a good choice of restaurants. Also enjoyed taking the ferry across the bay. But the best thing was the view of the sun setting over Ajaccio from the terrace - stunning reds on several evenings. Certainly hoping that we will be able to visit Tony’ place again.
