Leaving vibrant downtown Calvi, a short drive brings you to La Pinède at the end of the road in a small residential area. This smart house is very spacious and has a modern interior with picture windows on all sides. The entrance opens straight into a spacious, airy living/dining area, furnished and decorated in a contemporary style by its well-travelled owners. The bright designer kitchen is off to one side with sliding doors opening out on to an alfresco dining area beyond. The bedrooms also open out onto the garden and terrace. The walled garden with lawn on two sides, gas barbecue and decked swimming poolside will exert a powerful pull against the magnet of the beach and bustle of nearby Calvi.

However, it is just a 10-minute walk to the delightful Calvi bay beach and a train stop where you can hop aboard the well-known narrow-gauge U Trinchellu train that runs along the Balagne coastline from Calvi to Ile Rousse. At the beginning of July for one week Calvi beach also plays host to the popular music festival Calvi on the Rocks.

Customer feedback

Five of us, Mum, Dad, Grandpa & children aged 7 & 6 had a wonderful time in Calvi. Villa was perfect - great location and it had everything we needed. Debbie was wonderful with her suggestions & recommendations - nothing was too much trouble and she kindly booked restaurants for us. Overall, we had a great time!
The Robertson & Moon Family – August 2017

Villa La Pinede was perfect to explore Calvi - an easy walk to the beach and beautifully quiet, comfortable and had everything we wanted. Debbie was wonderful - such great recommendations and booked the restaurants for us, a real asset for Simpsons Travel. - Thank you so much! We will return!
Beth, Ian & Chloe – June 2017

Wonderful holiday, Corsica was beautiful. In-resort rep Debbie is a real asset to the company.
Mr Whitworth – June 2017

Simpson was a very efficient travel operative, with everything organised and easy to manage. The villa 'La Pinede' was palatial! Plenty of space, light and airy and easy to walk into Calvi from. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, and travel both there and back went without hitch. Corsica is described as a beautiful Island, and so it was, particularly in May. We had a wonderful week, and will certainly consider choosing Simpson again should they offer a destination we are interested in.
Mrs Appleby – May 2016

The villa was comfortable and we enjoyed our evenings sitting outside with a few bottles of the local wine. Great situation too - handy for local beach, Calvi town and the supermarket. Fab holiday, fab villa and love Corsica - will be back again soon. Mrs Oates - August 2015 We have had a glorious week at La Pinede - the villa has been perfect for our needs and Zena was immensely helpful with advice. A memorable holiday!
Mrs Viner – August 2015

Moore Family – July 2014

We had such a a great week in Calvi. lovely villa, spacious and very comfortable. The pools has been much used and enjoyed, the beach only a few minutes walk has been great too. Calvi is a lovely town, a symbiosis of chick modernity blended with Medieval back streets.

Corsica had so much to offer, fabulous weather and terrific restaurants. The holiday lived up to its promise. We would definitely go back to Corsica again with Simpson Travel.
Mr Mills – June 2014

A lovely week, super villa. Highlights included, relaxing by the pool and on the beaches (both the walkable local Calvi beaches and the short drivable plage du pain de sucre beach). Also, the mountain villages and the Citadel. Something for everyone!

Brilliant honest company...everything was as described. 100% recommendation.
Mr Pearson – May 2013

Our choice of Corsican properties is as diverse as the island itself, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

With fishermen mending their nets by the harbour, Calvi’s maritime heritage remains intact. However, the town has gained a new lease of life in the cafés and bars along Quai Landry, linking the marina and the port, with stretches of beach beyond.

Inland, the unspoilt beauty of The Balagne tells a different story of mountain wildernesses and the island's unspoilt and uniquely fragrant maquis. Follow the Route des Artisans through terracotta-tiled hilltop villages, overlooking a landscape of forests and mountains, and you’ll also find that an excellent glass of local wine is never far away.

Choose a holiday in Calvi & The Balagne and one of our handpicked luxury villas or apartments will put you in the heart of this diversely beautiful destination.
