Customer feedback

Simpson Travel are the absolute best. From the helpful agents, to the ease of booking, and the wonderful accommodations we will certainly come back for more.
Mr Weil – September 2017

Great service, great reception wonderful location, quite magical. We like Corsica, but this trip was the best so far.
Mrs Richards – June 2017

Holiday was excellent and the local reps were very helpful. Thank you.
Mr James – August 2016

Simpson provided an excellent service from beginning to end of our holiday. We loved the proximity of our accommodation to the beautiful Maura Beach and its bar/restaurant. Furthermore we had the historic town of Bonifacio, the glorious beaches of the south-east coast and the villages and stunning views of the mountains around Ospidale all within reach. We had an outstanding holiday and definitely want to travel with Simpson again.
Mrs Moynihan – June 2015

Great little villa with a brilliant view! We were lucky with the weather as 6 days of sun and little wind for first few days. Willie a great rep
Mr and Mrs Balon – September 2013

Wonderful stay! Comfortable and relaxing and great views. Enjoyed boat trip, walking from Bonifacio to the lighthouse, drive through Col de Bavella – stopping for fabulous rock pool swims. Rondinara beach beautiful. To park easily go into town early! Thanks to Joan for her advice when we arrived, really useful and appreciated. Ps Porto Vecchio Geant Casino has good fish counter – we bought amazing giant prawns/langoustines and just cooked them in garlic butter. Delicious!
Mr Travers – September 2012

Have travelled with the 'Simply' brand before and did not realise this was a reincarnation! Hope to re-book next year. Many thanks. Ms Carter - July 2012 We had a wonderful holiday.Thank you very much. Wished Simpson did Sardinia!
Mr Reynolds – June 2012



Simply brilliant! Have enjoyed this self-catering accommodation very much. In the heat it is lovely to feel as though one has a bit more space to breathe and enjoy the warm breezes. We found keeping all the shutters closed except kitchen one but glass doors open the best way to stay cool, and open shutters and doors for bad nights. The boat trip to Lavezzi is a must. Suggestion – take the 9h30 boat out and if you are a ‘fair’ person, take the 12h 30 boat back. There is no shade on this fabulous little island. Bring your snorkelling gear and dry bread if you want to see cool fish. Visit the small beach beyond the cemetery – and also make time to hop from one fun water hole to another for optimum view of the rock formations on this little island. Maora beach at low tide at sunrise is a spectacular sight to behold and swimming in the ocean at sunrise offers tremendous rewards. Trip on the D368 to the waterfall (do that hike early – ahead of 9am – saves you the parking fee and means you’re seeing the most spectacular morning sunrise over the rock formations – wear sturdy shoes!). Then drive on to Zonza/ Col de Bavella. If you are here around 6:45am, above the waterfall at 8am. Hike = 2 hours. Zonza is a great little place for a second breakfast and Col de Bavella superb for a picnic lunch. Mr & Mrs Sykes - June 2012 We loved the villa A Casarella. The overall atmosphere made perfect by the interior design, colours and paint finishes, furniture and lighting – congratulations! We loved the beaches at Plage de Caneti and Rondinara.
Mr and Mrs Plumpton – May 2012

Peace and tranquillity for the body and soul! What a position; what a change of pace. The colours of the bay changing before your eyes as the sun inches or clouds and rain cover the sky. Comfortable, well equipped and easy travelling (at this time of year), mountains, beaches, history. What more can one ask?
Mr and Mrs Roberts – May 2012

Great holiday. Thank you.
Mrs Dowdell – May 2012

Peaceful, relaxing, tranquil, well-furnished property. Stylish and practical. As comfy in torrential rain as in brilliant sunshine. Buy the bottled Rosé from the cask at €2.90 from the shop on the road to Porto Vecchio. Enjoy.
Mr & Mrs Owen – September 2012

We had a wonderful stay here – loved the location as well as our morning ritual of a swim followed by a coffee and croissant on the terrace. Thanks for thinking of everything!
Mr and Mrs Williamson – August 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.
