This modern and luxurious Villa of 600sqm overlooking the bay of Golfo Di Sogno is located right on the road to the most beautiful beaches of Southern Corsica and the ideal base for a group of friends wanting to explore the 'Island of beauty'. The Villa is brand new and tastefully designed to highest standards, sleeping up to 12 guests in six spacious en-suite bedrooms, all with air conditioning and private terrace or balcony. From here, you can easily visit the lively city center of Porto-Vecchio with its cafes, bars and restaurants or plan excursions to Corsica's stunning National park.

Facing south east, La Signoria is flooded with light from the early morning onwards. The spacious contemporary living area has large French windows that open onto the pool terrace and allow beautiful views of the Golfo Di Sogno bay. The huge gardens of 4000sqm are gently sloping down to the sea and boast private infinity pool, landscaped garden with local flora and fauna, boules court as well as private mooring for a small boat. La Signoria is built on three levels, all accessible by elevator. The master and the VIP bedroom are on the top floor, with stunning sea views.
