U Casales is a lovely village house, modern and clean with views of both mountains to the east and the ocean to the West. An unspoilt and tranquil corner of France inspire of our visit being in the hight of summer. Exceptional food and welcoming people.
Mr Williams – August 2017
Thank you for a wonderful stay, the villa is beautiful and the views are spectacular. It has been a magical week for us all - thank you!
The Burke Family – July 2017
Gorgeous Corsica! Our third wonderful holiday and I'm sure we will be back. Amazing views, amazing food, fabulous house and pool. Hope to see you soon!
The Havens Family – July 2017
U Casale has excellent facilities and superb views of mountains, nearby villages and the coast. The shop is only a few metres away as are good eating places. We particularly appreciated the integral garage and air conditioning as well as the broadband. Your rep (Debbie) was excellent. What a lovely island - we hope to return.
Mr Thomas – June 2017
A serene and idyllic week at U Casale - wonderful villa, well loved and thoroughly enjoyed. The girls adored the pool, and meals on the terrace were heavenly. We have adored Corsica and thoroughly intend to return. All in all, we had a wealth of fantastic experiences that were most definitely underpinned by U Casale, Debbie (who had some excellent tips!) and the team at Simpson. Until nxt year!
Freya, Devi, Isca & Cosumia – June 2017
Simpson have been great from start to finish. We had an exceptional villa that was an oasis of calm with all of the facilities we could have wanted. Everything ran smoothly from the booking process through to arrival, advice during our trip and departure. It was a complete change from the manic feel that some of our holidays have had and was hugely helpful to our two young children to have a safe haven they could return to after busy days out. They spent hours in the pool and pottering around on the terraces. The views were unbelievable and we have already talked about coming back (which is generally a no-no for us). Thanks to all, including our excellent rep, Debbie.
Doctor Lodge – June 2017
Another great holiday from Simpson Travel. The representatives are always very helpful. Debbie was very helpful whenever there was an issue. We were very pleased with the standard of the accommodation and the facilities.
Peter & Barbara – October 2016
Although just out of season, we had good weather and enjoyed a relaxing holiday in excellent accommodation.
Dr Yardley – October 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our first visit to Corsica with Simpson Travel. The villa was fabulous and looked exactly the same in reality as on the website. The onsite Represntative was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. We had such a great time we didn't want to come home! We will definitely book with Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Perry – June 2016
We've had a wonderful week here, enjoying morning and evening swims in the pool, and days out at the beach or walking. The location is lovely and we explored all the hill villages. Thank you to Debbie and Simpson Travel.
Mr Nash – October 2015
We've had a lovely holiday here in Corsica. The villa has been excellent and we cannot thank Debbie enough for making our holiday a relaxed, and well organised break. She really helped take the stress out of things and we appreciated the small gestures that made the villa feel like home. Thanks again!
Mr Florey – September 2015
Well done Simpson Travel, another winner!
Mr McPherson – September 2015
A lovely relaxing week in this gorgeous villa. Breakfast on the balcony with amazing views!
Mr Hines – August 2015
We have had a great stay in Corsica. Our favourite place during the week was Calvi.
Mrs Nancekivell – August 2015
I have had a good time here at U Casale. Love the white modern aspect of the villa. Thank you!
Mrs Guthrie – August 2015
We booked to stay at U Casale for a week in June, the booking process was really easy and the staff very helpful and accommodating. The villa was fantastic, exceptional quality and the most amazing views. Debbie Clover (local representative) was very helpful and gave us some great recommendations for beaches and restaurants. We will definitely book with Simpson Travel again and would thoroughly recommend them.
Mrs Gould – June 2014
We had a lot of criteria to match for our holiday as 3 generations. Simpson staff are excellent & have visited all the villas so can really you select one to suit. I was very impressed with the property we stayed in.
Mrs Plenderleith – June 2014
Lovely stay at U Casale. We really enjoyed the space and the views. Ours was mainly a walking holiday, we were amazingly luck with the weather, no rain and mostly sunshine. Thanks very much for the stay.
Mr and Mrs Halstead – October 2013
U Casale was a beautiful property with stunning views over mountains one way and sea the other. The upstairs living space was superb with real feel of space and style The rooms were comfortable and well serviced. We also stayed at the Bella Marina and views were superb and the location for beaches great.
Mrs Crowley – July 2013
We have had a fantastic week staying in a fantastic villa. The views are amazing or rather stunning as my husband would say! The beaches are lovely and not that far to drive to. A trip into the mountains to swim in the river is highly recommended. Calvi is well worth a visit in the evening- we went there three times! Hope you have a wonderful holiday.
Mrs Lockhart – July 2013
A truly beautiful villa that fitted superbly with other family of six adults and three bambinos! The views are truly amazing! Spent a lot of time in the pool but lovely late afternoon trips to the sea with some wine to watch the sun go down. Also had a fantastic time at the Forest of Bonifacio and the rock pools- a really good day out. An absolutely memorable stay with all our family.
Mr Haddad – July 2013
Our honeymoon was made all the more special by the warm welcome of the Simpson Travel representative and the quality of the accommodation. Thank you!
Mrs Swinhoe – June 2013
Thanks for a great week in a fantastically presented and appointed villa. Excellent facilities- especially the kitchen and multi media. The village setting is ideal- we all loved the cats and dogs in the village and our very own red kite who would swoop low over the pool to say hello. Then of course there are the views - Ille Rousse in one direction and the sea; mountain villages in the other. We stayed around the house and pool for most of the week but Ille Rousse is worth visiting. A great holiday, thanks again!
Mr Walmsley - May 2013
We stayed at a villa called U Carsale near Ille Rousse on Corsica for one week (6-13/4/13). The accommodation was excellent and is located with spectacular views over Ille Rousse to the north and the mountains to the south. The service from the Simpson local rep was first class.
Mr Mcalister – April 2013
Fabulous villa, nicest we have ever stayed in. We were surprised at the town location but a pleasant surprise. This was our first visit to Corsica, what a great place, full of history and interest, great food, fabulous wines – clearly a well-kept secret. The roads were also a revelation and not for the faint hearted. Villages high in the hills were a surprise – how did our forebears build them – and why!! Found the 9 hole golf course at Regino and enjoyed several rounds. Great success.
Mr & Mrs Bruce – September 2012
This is our fifth visit to Corsica over the years and we love the island more every time we come here. Normally, after a week, we are beginning to stir a bit and feel the need to get home but this time, we really really didn’t want to leave – wish we had at least another week here as a week just isn’t enough. The villa is just perfect in every way. The design, the practicalness, the location, the breath-taking views – we cannot fault it, it is probably one of the best villas we have stayed in – truly, we can’t fault a single thing – wonderful! We have been quite lazy this time but Calvi – must see, lovely for an evening meal. We also did some of the Artisan route to buy some local products – fabulous olive oil – the drive can be a little scary! But worth it too. The village here is nice too – bakers – so handy! A big thanks to our lovely rep too, a hive of local knowledge and who made us feel so welcome. Thank you, thank you. As Arnie says ‘I will be back’.
Mr Wilson – September 2012
A week wasn’t long enough, we’ll just have to come back. The house was a wonderful base and haven to come back to in the evenings; perfect for our mixed-age group (3-46 years). Little one enjoyed the pool very much. We recommend the butcher in the village and also the little grocer. The baker next door couldn’t be handier. Everyone has been very friendly, our daughter’s French and even my rusty Italian came in useful. Watch out for the eagle that did a fly past every morning and evening. We bathed in the sea (beaches a bit busy, could have gone further afield if we’d had more time) and in the river at Asco (scary driving but well worth it for the clear mountain air and water). Toured around several villages – very beautiful and atmospheric, (again would have gone further afield with more time). Thank you for a lovely week.
Mrs Pritchard – August 2012
We have really enjoyed our stay here in Corsica. We have liked the beaches the most, the one in Calvi was best for water sports. We used the bakers practically every day. We could not find the butchers though. We spent a lot of time at the supermarket, which is humongous! Villa is very modern! Overall very good.
Mr and Mrs Westwood – July 2012
Totally spoiled – thank you U Casale! A beautiful home.
Mr Paine – July 2012
We have enjoyed living in Santa Reparata and have found the boulangerie (which has recently been refurbished) very good. Lozari became our favourite beach. We also liked Algajola – pretty town and castle with long sandy beach. For a break from the beach we would recommend exploring some of the Balagne villages and a trip to St. Florent and Calvi. We have had a restful time with plenty to see if we felt like a trip in a very comfortable house. Do sample as much Corsican wine, which is excellent. We recommend Vin D’Orange or Vin De Citron as an aperitif! Enjoy your stay, we certainly have. Ps Saleccia Park (near Lozari) is a must to see Corsican flora in a pretty setting above the sea.
Mr and Mrs Burton – July 2012
Great place! Lovely to be in the village but so private and with such wonderful views. A visit to the forest of Bonifacio and bathing in the mountain pools was fantastic (and worth the drive).
Mr Wood – June 2012
Our second visit to Corsica with Simpson. The villa is perfect. Beautifully decorated and how nice to have a holiday home where all the crockery matches! Can’t decide between the mountain or sea view – both spectacular! A couple of days we spent round the pool which is an inspiration – so warm and sheltered.
Mr and Mrs Carsley – June 2012
Would be good to have links on website to google maps for the apartments
Mr Minifie – May 2012
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
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.
