Adorned with a belt of greenery whose folds and tucks embossed by the sun extend to the sea, this former flour mill stands proudly in the heart of the wooded reliefs of Haute-Corse. The stone facades dappled with the bluish reflections of the schist, the dark door frames and the structure of right angles give it an almost fort-like appearance, firmly set on the terraces bordered by rough walls like so many vestiges of old ramparts. Once inside, however, guests are surrounded by the softness of the whitewashed walls, terracotta floors and carpentry. In the hottest hours, they will find a soothing freshness here before exploring these lands with intoxicating scents and a proud rusticity.
With several generations of my family being from Corsica, I am from the south on my father's side and from this region of Haute-Corse on my mother's. My father bought this property in ruins in the sixties and after a complete rehabilitation, it became our family home.
The house is located in the middle of ten hectares of land on the heights of Valle-di-Campoloro with a breathtaking view of the coast and its natural environment. Completely restored in 1980, it has retained its original square architecture with four sections of dry stone walls. Discreet traces of the past, some of which have been altered with traditional materials and authenticity, remain visible such as the solid wooden beams on the ceiling, the terracotta floors and the racks on the windows.
The house probably dates back to the 18th century. Still surrounded by two rivers, it was once integrated into an ensemble that served the flour mill. Several families lived on the property and this house was the miller's home.
An authentic house endowed with history and a soul. A resort where guests can relax in peace. A natural environment that brings the pleasures of the sea and the mountains together. There are two rivers on the property and a small private road to access the beach. The port of Taverna, three kilometres away, will to take you to the open sea.
The Romanesque chapel of Santa Cristina in Valle-di-Campoloro, dating from the 9th century and classified as a Historic Monument, is a treasure of Corsican heritage. Right next to the house (and I have the key) is Veni E Posa - a restaurant located in a hut in the middle of the vineyards of the Terra Vecchia estate with a breathtaking view of the Diana pond. It is a truly unique place. The waterfall of Ucelluline, four kilometres away, is a natural, wild and unspoiled spot for a dip in the fresh, clear water. The Ranch Evasion offers horse riding for adults and children. The beaches of Solenzara are very peaceful, even in the height of summer, because they can only be reached by the sea.
