The Gulf of Valinco, in southern Corsica, opens with the Pointe de Porto-Pollo to the north and ends with the majestic Tour de Campomoro to the south. The pretty seaside resort of Propriano lies right in the heart of the gulf. On both sides, the beaches rival each other in beauty and nature reigns supreme.
On the north shore of the Gulf, on a hillside, the La Plage residence proudly dominates the area. Located in the commune of Olmeto Plage, the residence is about 10km by car from the center of Propriano, and very close to the seaside resort of Abbartello (about 1km). A privileged location, just a few meters from the region’s most beautiful, unspoilt beaches.
Olmeto Plage rolls out its sumptuous beaches with long stretches of sand: Capicciolo beach, Scodi Neri beach, Tenutella… Whether untamed or fitted out with a variety of water sports equipment (jet skis, paddles, etc.), each is sure to delight its guests! The small seaside resort of Abbartello, just a few minutes from the residence, offers all the amenities you need for a light-hearted stay (shops, restaurants, etc.).
Propriano boasts an attractive harbour with a long promenade, which is particularly pleasant in the evening. Its restaurants and bars face the sea and the boats. The Capu Laurosa promenade has recently been renovated and now offers a lovely footpath overlooking the sea and the eponymous beach below.

Corsica is a wonderful playground for nature lovers, and the Olmeto Plage and Propriano region is no exception. On the seaside, the Gulf of Valinco offers some of the wildest, most unspoilt beaches in southern Corsica. There’s no shortage of activities to discover these enchanting places: boat hire, excursions with a fishing guide, sea walks, scuba diving, as well as paddleboat, jet ski and sailboat hire.
On the maquis side, hiking trails overlooking the sea guide you along both sides of the gulf, from the Capanella tower to the Campomoro tower.
Just a few kilometers from your villa, the Etang de Tanchiccia is home to a wild bird reserve. Wooden pontoons and observatories have been installed to discover the area, which has been classified as a Zone Naturelle d’Intérêt Ecologique Faunistique et Floristique .
The prehistoric site of Filitosa, the Genoese towers of the Gulf or the Sartène museum… The Valinco region reveals a part of Corsican history to those who wish to discover it.
Filitosa and its statue-menhirs are just a 15-minute drive from the residence. Considered one of the most enigmatic prehistoric sites in the Mediterranean, Filitosa welcomes you to an exceptional natural setting, in the footsteps of early man.
The towers that make up the Gulf of Valinco (and encircle the whole of Corsica) invite you to discover a completely different era in the island’s history: the Genoese occupation of the 15th and 16th centuries.
