The “Cupulatta” (Corsican for “turtle”) is a beautiful one-level, 217-square-meter architect house. It is located 800 meters away from the sea as the crow flies, in Saint Cyprien Bay, just north of Porto Vecchio Bay.
Lying on a haven of greenery, surrounded by cork oaks and pine trees, it perfectly blends into its natural environment. Facing directly south, the house is surrounded by wooden decks. The house is rented wholly furnished and comes with a wide range of hotel services (reception, household linens, housework).
It is comprised of a vast living/dining area with an open kitchen, adjoining two wide covered terraces.
The 5 bedrooms, with individual bathrooms (including the master bedroom), offer considerable and enjoyable comfort. A/C is also available throughout the house. The 2,000-square-meter garden includes a heated swimming pool, sun decks, and a barbecue.

Lifelong Corsican – and more particularly Porto Vecchio, Saint Cyprien, and the southern part of the island – aficionados, we grew passionate about building, furnishing, and decorating the “Cupulatta” house. We fell in love with the lot located in the nature, characterized by its typical Mediterranean vegetation, and surrounded by a protected wooden area where construction is not allowed. We wanted the house to have a warm and contemporary interior at the same time, in perfect harmony with its natural environment and within proximity to the seaside. Thinking back on the amazing summers spent with family and friends, we wished to offer our guests a setting prone to relaxation, beach activities, or mountains hikes. Unless, more festive activities lead them to the Cabanon Bleu on the beach in the Bay of Saint Cyprien, or to the Via Notte club.
We would particularly like to thank Soline Meyer, our architect and Dominique, our interior designer and friend.
We worked with interior designer Dominique Giughèse, who owns the BAROCO show room in Lyon and who can assist you with any site work and management of undertaking companies
