Five minutes from Villa Davia, the nimble-footed can descend the rocky path to the bay below with its lovely beach. Yet this splendid, spacious villa in this area of exclusive residences at Marine de Davia on the beautiful Balagne coast, has plenty to tempt guests to stay at home. The villa has an individual swimming pool plus superb sea views; a drink on the terrace watching the sunset is a magical end to each day.

An endless string of beaches is accessible from Marine de Davia and the delightful narrow-gauge U Trinichellu train runs below the villa all the way to Calvi with the station just a couple of minutes away.

Villa Davia and Maison Fornello are both located in Marine de Davia and whilst maintaining independence and privacy, they can be rented together to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

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.
