 Guests at this villa will enjoy a spacious and airy interior, with the main living area leading out onto a homely veranda, which not only offers some welcome shade, but is also one of the best vantage points to soak up those striking views. There are two comfortable and light double bedrooms, one bathroom and one shower room with WC, while an extra smaller bedroom is suitable for a younger guest. A well-equipped kitchen is set away from the lounge and dining area, giving guests the chance to cook some of their own meals.

One of the focal points of any stay at Villa Asfodeli has to be the large and inviting pool area. Overlooking the surrounding countryside, the large pool and its sunloungers provide the perfect setting for soaking up some sunshine and relaxing, while a small dining area will also allow guests to enjoy an evening drink beside the pool once the temperatures have dropped.

About the Local Area


On the extreme north eastern tip of the island is Palau. This lively small town and port is primarily a beach resort with its own selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Around 3km to the north of the town lies the Fortezza di Monte Altura, a 19th century bastion on a rocky slope above the town. From Palau you can also take a boat trip out to the nearby Maddalena Islands.


Santa Teresa
Enjoy stunning views of the straits of Bonifacio over the transparent turquoise sea as you head to the dramatic headland of Capo Testa to the west of Santa Teresa. The nearby bay of Santa Reparata has some delightful stretches of beach.

Tanca Manna
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.

The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.
