Le Petit Sirocco Corsica, St Florent & Cap Corse

It is rare to find a house with a swimming pool so near to the heart of an old port. So when the owners of our existing Le Sirocco offered to build us a new villa we jumped at the chance. Le Petit Sirocco is a modern, light and airy villa and offers all the mod conveniences from air-conditioning to Wifi.

The villa is set on two levels with a large open plan living/dining area and two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs.

Staying at Le Petit Sirocco allows guests the opportunity to explore the local shops, restaurants and cafés of St Florent with its lively harbour, or marvel at the 12th century Cathédrale du Nebbiu, while retreating to Le Petit Sirocco's patio for a cooling swim.

  • A lovely villa and wonderful situation, able to walk to all the facilities in St Florent. We very much enjoyed Corsica and hope to visit again. Mr and Mrs Pick - August 2013
  • Excellent accommodation on a beautiful island. All the staff we came into contact with were extremely pleasant and helpful Mrs Purnell - June 2013
  • Once again we have had a fantastic holiday, 4th time to the same villa and it has still maintained all the qualities we love. It was good to see the same rep and be given a warm friendly welcome by both Martine and the villa owner. Mrs Brett - May 2013
  • A big thank you to the owners for providing such comfortable and attractive accommodation, and for such a friendly welcome. Our first visit to Corsica and we hope very much it won't be our last. Mr and Mrs Johnson - May 2013
  • Perfect villa – nicely done inside, great space for outdoor living, close to the town. Wish we had a bit longer here to explore more of the beaches. Mr Jones - September 2012
  • We had a superb week here. Great villa and great location. Mr Cooper - August 2012
  • We have loved our first visit to Corsica. The villa is lovely –well-equipped and peaceful, yet close enough to everything you will need. Cap Corse is stunning. Nonza, Centuri, Macinaggio, Erbalunga – beautiful villages along the way. Les Gorges de L’asco – just amazing. Incredibly high mountains and deep gorges. Lovely rockpools for swimming and picnicking. Mr Chacksfield - August 2012
  • Great holiday for us and the kids. The rock pools at the Gorges de L’asco were the absolute favourite. We spent two days there, swimming in the fresh water rock pools and jumping in off the rocks. Villa was perfect for us. Mr Whyte - August 2012
  • We loved our first trip to Corsica and St Flo! The villa was perfect for our escape from ‘rainy Scotland’! Great location for short walk to shops, cafés and restaurants. We enjoyed a day trip to Calvi, though the first part of the road was very twisty! We’ll hopefully be back. Mr Sutherland - July 2012
  • A fab first week for us in Corsica! Both villa and St Florent provide a great introduction to the island and we will definitely be back! Definitely agree about doing tour around Cap Corse but allow plenty of time for the twisty (and unmade!) roads – watch out for the diggers in the middle of the road!! Recommend Nonza (there is a café up by the tower which has a great view), and Macinaggio in particular as great stop off points. Mr Miller - June 2012
  • A return visit to St Florent having stayed at Patrimonio 4 years ago – pleased to say St Florent is as lovely and enjoyable as before with the added bonus of being able to walk into town from this lovely villa. Do drive the Cap Corse, it is so amazingly beautiful. We stopped at Erbalunga (morning coffee), Macinaggio (picnic lunch) and Centuri Port has to be seen to be believed. We will return again to Corsica for a 4th visit, of that I am certain. Ps if washing up, watch your head on the handle of the cupboard above!! Mr Cowan - June 2012
  • Once again we have had a fabulously relaxing holiday in Corsica! We can thoroughly recommend the boat trip from St Florent to the beaches of Lotu and Saleccia, we had a lovely day. Also, we loved the trip to Nonza (1/2 hour), and walking down the steps, through the gardens to the pebble beach. Thanks Simpsons and Jean Pierre! Mr Furniss - June 2012
  • Our first visit to Corsica and we have enjoyed our two weeks here. The villa is lovely – close enough to walk in to the town but quiet and peaceful. The coastal path is stunning. There is plenty of parking before starting to walk on the Sentier du Littoral. It is around 2 ½ hours each way if you walk all the way to the Mortella Tower. Mr Jones - May 2012
  • We will certainly look at travelling with Simpsons in the future. Very impressed Mr Jones - May 2012
  • Lovely villa with all mod cons – day trips to Nonza (+ the gardens/grey beach). Ile Rousse worth a visit, plus the boat to Lotu and Saleccia. Thanks for providing such a nice little house for us! Mrs Coon - May 2012
  • A very enjoyable holiday. Mr Burke - May 2012
  • We have loved visiting this corner of Corsica with its variety of beautiful scenery. The villa is delightful and very well equipped. Thank you for helping us to enjoy a wonderful holiday! Mr Burke - May 2012

Grading Criteria:


Position, view, serenity, privacy


Space, style, furnishings and interiors


Property enhancements


Proximity to beach, restaurant and shops
