Villas on the best beaches. Our top 5 chosen from our collection of 240 villas within walking distance of a beach to help you find the right beachside holiday home for your holiday.
The Palombaggia beach near Porto Vecchio on the French Mediterranean island of Corsica is widely recognised as the best on the island and as the "isle de beaute" is acknowledged as having some of the best beaches in Europe then our five star luxury villa Palombaggia PVMT14 is quite rightly at the top of our list.
Spain has miles and miles of coastline yet the Costa Brava stands out for its beautiful sandy coves flanked by spectacular cliffs and the beach at Tamariu is a jewel in the crown. Here we have a superb modern villa the Vista Alegre MAT829 which is within walking distance of the sea and sand.
Also in Spain in the Costa Blanca the Arenal beach in the family resort of Javea is highly reputed for its soft sand which slopes gently into the sea as well as its attractive promenade and a great choice of sophisticated bars and restaurants as well as designer shops. The villa Ryan SUN1628 which is just fifteen minutes walk is superb for large groups and also has a huge pool.
The beach near Lagoa in the Algarve, Portugal, known as Praia de Marina is one of the best in the area. It is a cove with a gently sloping sandy beach and excellent snorkelling around the rocks in the calm waters. From our villa Rina SPA1014 there is a footpath direct from the villa, just 200 metres to a beach near Lagoa.
The Fontaine Bianche beach is renowned for its crystal clear sea which is a big attraction for snorkelling and photographing underwater. The sandy beach is ideal for resting up in between swims. From our villa Fontaine Blanche DAM603 you can walk direct to the beach, it is just 500 metres and there is direct access to the sea from the bottom of the garden.
It is lovely to stay in a house by the beach but how about a holiday in the best villas by the best beaches?
