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.

Customer feedback

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.....
Mrs Blumenau – July 2017

Another excellent holiday with Simpson Travel, fantastic location and lovely villa. We are looking forward to our next trip. Thank you.
Mr North – June 2017

Had a fantastic time in Villa Davia. What a location! Loads to do if you can tear yourself from the veranda and pool. Superb beaches and restaurants. We hope to back very soon.
Angela & Tony - June 2017

Villa Davia is lovely and very comfortable, we were so impressed with the thought that had gone into making sure our arrival was stress free, lovely thoughtful welcome pack was here on arrival, the instructions to the villa were great as well. Very impressed with Simpsons Travel. The owner of Villa Davia was also so kind and helpful. We love Corsica, the sunsets from terrace were beautiful, the beach and cove was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful holiday at Villa Davia
Stephens Family – June 2017

Simpson Travel take all the hassle out of arranging a holiday and that is why we would definitely use them again. Northern Corsica was a delight and our lovely rep Zena was helpful and informative about the local area. She mentioned she might be transferring to the south of the island and we might just follow her there for our next trip!
Mrs Donald – September 2016

Villa Davia is in a superb location for walking down to a beautiful beach, fantastic for swimming and snorkelling, as well as being an easy walk to the train. We travelled with teenagers and this gave them some freedom to go into Calvi or Isle Rouse independently. The pool is small as described, but great to dip in and cool down. The sunsets at this villa are superb, every night spectacular and the stars following beautiful. Lovely owners, great rep and welcome package. We also really appreciated plenty of dishwasher tablets, washing machine tablets etc, it just made everything easy.
Mrs Jones – July 2016

We had a very enjoyable holiday in Corsica with Simpson and will definitely return to the beautiful Island. The reason Simpson were different to other companies were the excellent airport service and flight (chartered) and the concierge in Corsica.
Mrs Peacock – August 2015

A very enjoyable and good quality holiday - arrangements were straightforward and everyone involved, were very helpful.
Mrs Badham – May 2015




A very relaxing week in this beautifully sited villa, with fantastic sunsets. We have been to Corsica many times, but this villa has the best view, we hope to return again to this lovely island.
Mr Percival – September 2014

A fantastic week in Corsica, all have loved staying in the villa, with the kids always in the pool! A different beach to enjoy everyday. The view from the terrace is one to be captured. Everyone has been so very friendly.
Mr Preston – June 2014

Our first trip to Corsica and we're all in agreement that we would come back again, and to Villa Davia. The villa has been lovely, wonderful sea views and the secluded beach very nice to snorkel and sunbathe in.
Mr Marsden – May 2014

We have loved staying in this very comfortable villa and exploring the stunningly beautiful coastline and mountains. Corsica is a walker's paradise. We hope to come back soon, thanks Simpson Travel.
Ms Chandler – September 2013

Really enjoyed our stay at Villa Davia - found the villa to be very comfortable and spacious. Lots to see and do. The coast and beaches are irresistible - how fantastic to have your own right on your doorstep! Lovely relaxing holiday - thank you!
Abbit family – August 2013

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Davia, the view has been spectacular. The highlights of our visit to Corsica have been, the rock pools and evening sunset walk up to the lighthouse in L'Ile Rousse. Overall a fantastic holiday in this beautiful country.
Mr and Mrs Knowles – August 2013

Great two weeks with a spectacular view over an ever changing seascape. Walk to beach very convenient and enjoyed before the crowds descended. Overall Corsica does not disappoint with astounding natural beauty and variety.
Munden family – August 2013

We had a splendid week - Thank you.
Mr and Mrs Spraggs – July 2013

We have had a wonderful week in Villa Davia. Beautiful location and perfect views. Very comfortable and well equipped.
Shapland family – July 2013

Many thanks for an excellent holiday. All the arrangements were very good and the villa was outstanding. Even the weather behaved!
Mr Whiteman – September 2012

I think my answers show just how delighted we were with everything about the holiday. The attention to detail in the personal service given was a credit to you and when a bottle was left with birthday greetings on the doorstep midweek that just summed up the unique service.
Thank you all so much!
Mrs Cooper – 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.

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.
