Apartment Bella Vista Corsica, Cavallo Island

This elegant, family-sized apartment is perfectly located on the main square overlooking the sea, just a short walk from the beautiful, powder soft beaches. The accommodation is light-filled and very spacious, decorated in contemporary, island-inspired shades, and equally appealing to families or a group of friends, thanks to the three en-suite bedrooms. The living room opens onto a large, shaded terrace where you can enjoy pre-dinner drinks whilst watching the luxury yachts and fishing boats in the marina below.

For dinner out, the beachfront Hotel et Spa des Pêcheurs is a one minute walk away.

Thanks to the unique nature and compact geography of Cavallo, we are pleased to offer a range of additional services to enhance your stay. Please click the Dining and Spa tabs for full details.
