Just a 10 minute drive from Bonifacio, this charming cottage enables its occupants to enjoy a peaceful location within easy access to the shingle beach of Maora below. Fine sea view of the Santa Manza Gulf can be enjoyed from this cottage and Santa Manza Bay offers possibilities for wind-surfing, while Maora itself has a beach restaurant in season and can be reached in an eight minute walk.

Customer feedback

Everything that Simpson did was excellent. Sam the holiday rep was very good. Travel arrangements excellent. The car was perfect for our location whoever arranged the car must have knowledge of the track conditions as the car came with off road capability. It's this attention to detail that has impressed us.
Mr Liddell – September 2016

Really impressed with your representative Samantha who advised us on how to get the best from our first visit to Corsica.
Mr Addis – July 2016

A lovely cottage for a peaceful holiday in Southern Corsica. Description and pictures on website are very accurate - the views really are that good - we never tired of sitting on the terrace just drinking it all in. Excellent location, 10 minutes from Bonifacio and within easy reach of lots of beaches and also the mountains if you wanted to explore a bit. Maora beach is only a very short walk from the cottage and we enjoyed swims before breakfast most days. If we go back to Corsica we would look to stay here again.
Mr Griffiths – June 2016

Yet again we had a lovely holiday through Simpson travel. We will start thinking about next year soon and Simpson will be top of our list.
Mr Burgess – July 2015

We had an overall great experience. Beautiful location, convenient accommodation, very clean and well fitted. And a very thoughtful welcome kit for first breakfast and lunch! Ms Corsico - August 2015 Very secluded villa. Perfect for anyone who wants a good break away from it all.
Mr Petch – September 2013

Had a great holiday. The accommodation has been terrific - very likely to return in the future! Mr Ashby - July 2013 Very well organised journey. The local reps in Corsica were very experienced and knowledgeable.
Mrs Nayler – May 2013

 

 

We have had a very relaxing week, really enjoying the villa and the view. The beach is delightful and sea good for swimming. We enjoyed several barbecues and local wines and cheeses. Visited Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. Many thanks to you Joan for all your help. Full moon rose over the mountains – reflecting on the water and giving a wonderful setting for our last evening barbecue.
Mr and Mrs Steward – September 2012

Rock pools at Taglio Rosso are worth a trip – there is a ten or fifteen minute drive on an unmade road, but it is worth it. Not so sure about the Solenzara/Zonza trip – a lot of time in the car. Many thanks.
Mr & Mrs Teare – September 2012

More well-satisfied customers who enjoyed the villa immensely. All we could have wished for in a break from reality. Unmissable highlights include swimming in river rock pools by the D268 at Solenzara (don’t stop at the first area, better further up). Thank you Simpson. Thank you Joan.
Ms Parson – August 2012

We have had a fantastic week. Pinarello is our favourite local beach but St. Guilia and Palombaggia are still our favourite beaches after three visits to Corsica. Beware of the traffic – we have been going out at 9ish or after lunch about 2ish and that has been fine. Think we have been here for one of the busiest weeks so it may be fine from here on in but booking restaurants in advance is also a must! If you do go to Palombaggia don’t take the coast road, take the turning on the left before Spar and Bocca dell’Oro turning. It’s signposted for a nightclub. At the end of a very windy road turn left and then immediately right and park on the road if you can or in one of the restaurant car parks (varying €10 or €30 when you get back). Enjoy the relaxing villa! Ps Boulangerie every day for breakfast treats was yummy!
Mr and Mrs Walsh – 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.
