  • Tasteful stylish villa
  • Elegantly understated
  • Stunning sea and mountain views
  • Overlooks Île Rousse

A show-stopping villa with stunning views, U Casone is the sort of place that you just never want to leave. Supremely high spec yet elegantly understated, this villa combines the very best in tasteful contemporary style with a commanding position overlooking L’Ile Rousse bay and the mountains of Cap Corse beyond. If you’re a fan of clever design, you’ll love the enormous mirrors that double as TVs and the state-of-the-art pre-stocked wine fridge. Subtle mood lighting enhances both the indoor and outdoor spaces, the pool is heated and the gym is, like the rest of this stunning property, fully air-conditioned.

Houses of this scale and luxury are often tucked away in remote locations, but not so U Casone. Located near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the villa is less than 2km from the centre of L’Ile Rousse, a charming coastal town with a Provençal feel to its many small shops, bars and restaurants. If your party includes independent teens they can get themselves to and from L’Ile Rousse by themselves, as long as they can cope with the steep uphill walk on the return, leaving the adults free to enjoy the terraces, the Jacuzzi and the sublime view. There is a string of beaches and a pretty promenade down in L’Ile Rousse itself, plus further smaller more secluded beaches such as Bodri, less than ten minutes away by car.

Customer feedback

I would like to say how very impressed I am with Simpson Travel. The entire experience front to back was impeccable. Annabel who we booked through was fantastic, Debbie in northern Corsica was exceptional and our villa was sublime. We will be using Simpson travel for all future holidays where we can and have already started recommending the company to family and friends.
Mrs Clarke – October 2017

The service on the ground in Corsica was exceptional. Debbie went above and beyond to help us have a lovely time: booking restaurants, excursions, and providing good local knowledge. She even escorted me to her dentist when a dental emergency arose! We were also given excellent help at the airport by Laura on both ends of our journey. We were too busy soaking up the amazing views to write in the guest book but it should be added that Villa U Casone is a dream destination. Everything in the villa was of the highest standard, everything worked the way it was supposed to (we've rented a lot of villas over the years and are no longer surprised that this isn't always the case), and it was a very comfortable week. Thank you Simpson Travel, we'll be back!
Ms Beck – August 2017

We have had a fabulous 2 weeks - Still so much to do and see but Corsica slows you down (as it should). Thanks Debbie for your efforts made the stay even better. Hope the following guests have a great experience and enjoy Corsica and the villa as much as we have!
The Courtney's – July 2017

A wonderful week at beautiful Villa Casone. It was hard to drag ourselves from the spectacular view. Thank you to Debbbie for all her help and advice. The drive along Artisans trail is not to be missed. This is our first visit to Corsica and it won't be our last. Thank you very much to Debbie!
Whitworth Family – July 2017

Totally recommend Simpson Travel. They did everything they could to ensure a smooth and enjoyable holiday for us.
Mrs Higgins – July 2017

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.
