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.

Great to be back at the top end of Corsica again and enjoy this stunning view on the Marine Davia Estate. Jack, the owner is delightful!

We had a lovely time. Such a magnificent view. The children loved the pool. We found some playgrounds at Calvi and L’Ile Rousse, which were a great hit. Hopefully see you again.

The Fermor family, July 2023

Well equipped spacious villa in a stunning location - beautiful sunsets every night, walking distance to 4 beaches and short drive to restaurants and bars, it even kept 4 teenagers happy! The whole area reflects its unpretentious natural beauty. Will definitely be returning.

If you love sea views and the convenience of your own private pool then look no further than Villa Davia. It’s a beautiful villa set on a hill overlooking the ocean. It’s position makes it ideal for anyone wishing to get away from it all yet being within a short car drive of fabulous beaches, pretty little towns and jaw dropping mountain landscapes. Mrs Heyes June 2018I was a little nervous travelling alone with my daughter and son for the first time, but I couldn’t have wished for a better experience…thank youEmma, Izzy & Harry, 2018 The villa accommodation is probably the best that we have ever had mainly because the renovation is new and that we had our own pool. We often have to take a larger property just to get a private pool. View and location were also very good. And the villa was exactly as it appeared in the brochure/web site. Thank you.

Mrs Mitchell, October 2017

Another excellent holiday with Simpson Travel, fantastic location and lovely villa. We are looking forward to our next trip.Anthony North, 2017  Villa Davia was perfect! A glorious view, excellent accommodation, lovely little pool and stunning location. We were a large party of various ages from 1 year upwards, and we had a brilliant holiday. The local Rep was really helpful and knowledgeable and went out of her way to make sure we felt welcome and relaxed. We're already planning our return visit.....

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.
