This Genoese tower to rent in Corse-du-Sud is a place steeped in history: like the hundred or so towers along the Corsican coast, this one was built by the Republic of Genoa in the 15th or 16th century. It was used to warn of attacks by lighting a fire on the roof. It was renovated in 2021 with attention to detail and high quality materials by history buffs who, while respecting the character of the building ,have added modern comforts. Over four floors, the tower has three small double bedrooms, a living room with a small fitted kitchen and a roof terrace with a stunning view of the bay. Outside, a summer kitchen in polished concrete and a beautiful dining table under a shaded terrace allow you to live completely immersed in the outdoors. Below in the garden, you can also enjoy the sunken swimming pool and a jacuzzi with a spectacular view of the sea and the mouth of the Taravo river.
Ideally located on the heights of the village of Porto-Pollo, in Corse-du-Sud, you will be a 10-minute walk from a white sand beach. At the foot of the property, there is opportunity to purchase local products and local shops are only a few minutes away by car. You will also be 10 minutes from the prehistoric site of Filitosa and 20 minutes from Propriano.
