Let yourself be charmed …

Corsica or the Island of Beauty… you dream of it! For the first time or always this same desire to come back. The domain derives its name from an ancestral agricultural practice.

The Aghja, on an area of m2 4,500 in the middle of wild nature, inhabited by holm oaks and olive trees, is there, nestled between sea and maquis at 200 meters above sea level offering to your eyes the splendid panorama of the bay of Cupabia which beach is one of the most beautiful in Corsica. The Aghja was the threshing ground which, for centuries, was used to beat wheat for the entire Taravo region and beyond, the Valinco golfe.

You will love its beauty, its calm, its spirit of freedom. The serene atmosphere of the place is accompanied by the scents of Mediterranean plants, the maquis including the endemic “Immortelle”, listening to the song of cicadas.

The sun shines its rays early in the morning illuminating the pool with natural water springing up from the source of the domain at a depth of 140 meters to fade late at night into the sea.

The pleasure of being together by the pool, playing during the “aperitif” a party of pétanque on the bowling field or a game of table football… or table-tennis… and at night, join his own island of private life.

The domaine de l’Aghja is like no other. You will have the feeling of living there “singularly”. I will be happy to welcome you.


Sheep barns between sea and maquis

Three distinct habitats compose the Domain.

The domain can accommodate 8 people.

A CASA It is the main house. Built of old stones, it was originally the stable of the domain.

U CASEDU The house of the shepherd in the maquis, the oldest of the domain.

A CABANA View on the maquis


There is still the old fireplace that allowed the shepherd to cook and warm up.

Two bunk beds.

It also has a solar shower and dry toilets surrounded by holm oaks and olive trees.


On the ground floor, the living room overlooking the pool consists of a sitting area with a bench with two single beds, a table for lunch inside in case of cooler weather and a fully equipped kitchen including an American-style fridge and freezer. You will find the washing machine in the laundry room.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with a child’s bed. The view on the pool and beyond on the sea, is superb. A bathroom with shower and toilet is adjacent to the bedroom.


A master bedroom, overlooking the maquis, with a bathroom basin, is also equipped with a solar shower and dry toilet surrounded by holm oaks and olive trees.

The mirror pool

The sky reflects in its water giving you the feeling of swimming in a mountain lake…

Thanks to the purity of its spring water and its ultra-violet treatment system, the domain’s swimming pool is entirely natural, without chlorine or salt.

The little ones will enjoy this beautiful water in completely safe environment (alarm) and the great athletes will recognise a spirit of challenge in the counter-current swimming with the turbine in the 11m x 5m pool.

Some will appreciate the elliptical stepper facing the sea.

As for the dreamers, the white noise of the waterfall will softly guide them in their own escape.

The  garden

The barbecue facing the swimming pool and the sea, in the shade of a plane tree murier, will enable you enjoy, among other things, the Corsican veal brochettes or the fish caught the night before.

A large table and a summer lounge are at your disposal for your convivial moments.

The games

The pétanque court, the table football and the table tennis for your playful moments.

The region

Porto Pollo, the harbor of the commune, opens onto the Valinco golf course, opposite Propriano, a renowned seaside resort. (corsicamore.fr ; la-corse-autrement.com)
