This attractive family home is located close to Aleria, one of the oldest settlements on the island with a corresponding wealth of cultural and architectural treasures.  By contrast, the villa itself is elegantly modern, with impressive vaulted ceilings and contemporary décor. The lawned grounds are fully enclosed, with three separate seating areas as well as a private swimming pool. The villa has lovely mountain views and feels part of the local community; there’s a working winery next door, and you can enjoy the comings and goings of the annual grape harvest in late September. The beaches of Padoule and Casabianda, with a couple of delightful beachside restaurants, are only 8-10 minutes away by car.

Villa A Murza is an excellent base for exploring the north and east of Corsica, with many archaeological sites close by. It is also a local gourmet hot spot, with artisan wineries to visit and a couple of renowned seafood restaurants. Particularly recommended for those who may be on their second or third visit to Corsica and who want to discover Corte and the hinterland as well as the stunning beaches.

Customer feedback

We have all enjoyed a wonderful, happy time over the last two weeks. The house is beautiful and well equipped, we have spent many glorious evenings on the patio looking at the splendid views. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
The Thompsons – August 2017

What a wonderful villa! Very impressive and luxurious. Thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful views of the mountains, the complete silence at night and day and sitting by the pool in total relaxation. We shall miss our morning coffee watching the swallows dive and feeling the sun on our shoulders. Many thanks for a totally relaxing break!
The Littlewoods – August 2017

Our family enjoyed a lovely holiday at Villa a Murza, Corsica. The location (near Aleria) is a bit out of the way - far from the more popular tourist destinations of Porto Vecchio or Calvi. But that was a plus. Though the best beaches were rather a long drive away - the local beaches were still quite nice. The villa itself is fantastic. Lots of space inside and out. Excellent pool, lovely views. Highly recommended.
Mr Thompson – August 2017

Great times by the pool with breathtaking views of the mountains as a back drop!
Mr Clarke-Bryan – August 2017

This is our fifth visit to Corsica and our most luxurious! The villa is beautiful and the mountain views are stunning - I found it hard to concentrate on the holiday reading when looking across to the mountains was such a joy. We loved watching the swallows and the red kites flying around. This is our first time on the East coast of Corsica but it won't be our last there is so much more to explore
The Hochie Family – July 2017

 

Villa A Murza is a large,fashionable villa with a very large, fully enclosed garden and excellent swimming pool in a peaceful location.. The mountain views from the house are wonderful. The hosts are very discrete but also friendly and helpful if required. The villa is in a small village just outside Aleria and is well-placed for touring Eastern and Central Corsica. We enjoyed visits to Corte and its mountains as well as visiting the Roman ruins in old Aleria and whisky tasting at Domaine Mavela. This is our fifth visit to Corsica and our most luxurious! We would be very happy to return next year and explore more of the area.
Mrs Lockie – July 2017

Villa Murza is a wonderful villa with stunning views in such a quiet and peaceful location. If you want to get away from it all this is the villa for you. But still enough to do with glorious pool and local beach to entertain an 11, 9 and 4 year old! First holiday with Simpson Travel and already looking forward to the next!
Mrs Simmonds – August 2016

Our local representative David Henry was excellent, gave helpful information and sorted out the car hire queries; really made a big difference to the start of our holiday. All representatives of the company we spoke with were very helpful and approachable
Mrs Holder – July 2016

We had the most wonderful holiday at the Villa Murza in Corsica and were very impressed with your company; this was the first time we had used you and welcomed the excellent advice, guidance and fabulous service. Thank you.
Mrs Foster – July 2015

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.

This beautiful region is the perfect choice for those who like to get off the beaten track and explore the wilder side of the island. Home to the largest chestnut forest in Europe, the steep landscape is dotted with tiny hamlets and the occasional vineyard. Take a gentle walk along the cobbled streets in the mountain citadel of Corte or enjoy the fresh air and pastoral charm of the vast protected Corsican Parc Naturel with its wild boar, deer and wildcats. 

To help you make the most of your holiday in Central Corsica, we're delighted to have found Villa A Murza, a contemporary country house that's perfect for families.
