Thank you so much for your interest in Le Manoir, now on to the property details.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Le Manoir overlooks the village of Bastelica, where Babette’s family has lived for six centuries. the house and grounds provide a wonderful base for groups to enjoy the incredible natural beauty and romance of Corsica. In the village one can hike on mountain pathways, or wander through romantic walkways that have remained unchanged since the middle ages.
One is surrounded by the smell of jasmine and mint and the Corsican maquis. Time is kept for the village by the church bell on the village square. Meals are taken in the Grand Salon or on the patio surrounded by the Manoir’s orchard. There is fresh bread delivered daily to the village.
Corsica is located about 100 miles south of Nice, France, and 100 miles west of the Italian Riviera. It is the birthplace of Napoleon (his mother, Letizia, is said to have slept at Le Manoir). It's coastline Corsica, off the coast of Francehas white sand beaches and rocky coves. The Genoese built a series of signal towers that surround the island before they sold it to France in 1763. The island's center is dominated by mountains as high as 10,000 feet with Bastelica being at 2,400 feet.
Corsica is one of the few unspoiled spots in Europe. The village of Bastelica is only 26 miles from the capitol city of Ajaccio and it's airport Campo del Oro. Narrow passages wing from neighborhood to neighborhood in this medieval village. The sound of mountain streams backdrop the sounds of chickens, goats and pigs that sometimes wander through the streets. The Church bell on the plaza marks the time.

I am from Corsica, France. I am a professional artist & designer. I live half the year in France and half the year in the US. I could not live without my family and good friends. I enjoy meeting new people, discovering new eateries, going to movies and live theater and entertainment, visiting art galleries and museums and traveling the world. My style is European luxury with a touch a southwest country on the side. I have been in the hospitality industry most of my life and enjoy hosting in my property here in Bastelica, Corsica, France.
joie de vivre!
