$3.6 MILLION (2,750,000 EUROS)
This granite palace tucked among hills near the Mediterranean Sea is roofed in red tile and has nearly 5,400 square feet of space. It was built in 1780 by a local nobleman in the heart of a village about 15 minutes’ drive from Ajaccio, the Corsican capital. Seven years ago, it was thoroughly restored by the current owner, who made use of salvaged materials like oak flooring and unpolished black slate, along with modern appliances.
The stone structure, fully air-conditioned and set on almost half an acre, now operates as a bed-and-breakfast inn called Carpe Diem Palazzu. It is equipped and functional; all furnishings are included in the asking price.
