An exceptional location, comfortable accommodation and warm and friendly service: it’s where all our Simpson Hotels begin. We’ve spent years searching for a hotel in Corsica deserving of a place in our collection and at last we’ve found one!

Just a ten-minute stroll from one of Europe’s most spectacular beaches and enjoying surroundings of such rugged beauty that you’ll never tire of exploring, Hotel Alto di Pinarello is a Corsican gem. This exciting addition to the Simpson Hotel portfolio offers nine stylish suites, each with its own well-equipped kitchen, spacious living and dining area, and a private balcony or terrace. There is the option to choose a suite with multiple bedrooms (up to three) meaning even larger groups and families can be comfortably accommodated. And though you can be perfectly self-sufficient, daily breakfast on the terrace is included and there is an honesty bar for those moments when you are too busy relaxing by the hotel’s inviting heated pool to venture far afield.

But the unrivalled setting of Hotel Alto di Pinarello is sure to capture your imagination. With three lovely bays on your doorstep, where fine white sands shelve gently into the azure waters, it makes a wonderful choice for couples and families alike. And if you can bear to leave the sea, the ten hectares of pine forest behind Pinarello beach are a haven for walking or a leisurely picnic, while nearby A Tyroliana Parc offers tree-top adventures, canyoning and rock climbing. When temperatures climb, a cooling dip at the inland rock pools on the Cavu River is an idyllic way to spend the afternoon and when you are out and about, there are many excellent restaurants and shops in the area, from bijou Pinarello village, just a ten-minute stroll from the hotel, to sophisticated Porto Vecchio, around 30 minutes away by car.

With so much to choose from you may welcome a little guidance from Fred, our dedicated Concierge, who has a passion for Corsica that’s infectious. Whether you’re enjoying the tennis and watersports close to home, or seeking inspirational days out, he’ll be delighted to help you make the most of everything this glorious area has to offer.

Customer feedback

We loved our stay. The location and set up are both great. The combination of being served a hotel breakfast, with having a fully equipped self-catering apartment, with being so near to lots of restaurants, provided excellent flexibility and worked really well for us as a family. Fred and his wife, Zena, are very friendly hosts. Fred’s cooked breakfasts are delicious. And his local knowledge and recommendations for what to do and where to go were priceless. We stayed for a week and didn’t want to leave!
Mrs Bollinghaus – August 2019

We had an amazing week at Hotel Alto di Pinarello. Fred’s breakfasts and Friday night barbecue were both magnificent and he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the local area. The location of the hotel was perfect – just 10 minutes’ walk from Pinarello, one of Corsica’s best beaches and where there was a good selection of restaurants. The southern coast of Corsica has some stunningly beautiful beaches, with jaw-dropping turquoise seas and we enjoyed exploring them. We certainly intend to come back again.
Mrs Williams – August 2019

Fred just has a great affinity with food. The breakfasts were exceptional: beautiful ingredients and meticulously prepared. The barbecue and welcome buffet were also excellent. Throughout our stay, we felt that nothing was too much trouble from any of the team. Zena and Fred made our holiday go from great to exceptional.
Simpson Traveller – August 2019

Fred and Zena were amazing, sorting out local issues with the flight and car hire late on Sunday and served a delicious breakfast early the next day. Very helpful local advice and tips and always around if you needed them but not intrusive into the very relaxing holiday experience!
Sarah Rees – July 2019

If you’re looking for a quiet week lazing around in the sun, in idyllic and very comfortable surroundings, with beautiful beaches on your doorstep and a very amiable host Fred starting every day off with a Corsican/English fusion breakfast and helpful advice on your plans – then Hotel Alto di Pinarello is definitely the place to come.
Paul & Fiona Colvin – July 2019

We have had the best holiday ever at the Alto di Pinarello – ideally situated for all of our favourite places in South Corsica – the Col de Bavella, Porto Vecchio, Bonifacio and all the excellent beaches around. Pinarello village is only a few minutes’ walk and had a good variety of cafés and restaurants. The staff at the hotel were exceptionally warm and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble.
Mrs Gregory – July 2019

The staff were exceptional in their helpfulness, warmth and expertise. Fred deserves a special mention. His breakfasts were excellent and he was always on hand to answer questions and point us in the right direction. He absolutely went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our holiday.
Mr & Mrs Shaw – July 2019

I don't usually write reviews unless I'm unhappy but having just returned from Hotel Alto Pinarello, I can honestly say it surpassed my expectations. The apartments are exceptionally well fitted out with everything you could possibly want. Spotlessly clean. Fantastic breakfasts every day on the outside terrace cooked to order with fresh coffee and warm croissants. Welcome drinks and a barbecue evening are brilliant social events hosted by the lovely Fred and Zena, whose help and advice of Corsica is priceless! I left feeling that I had made a couple of great friends there! Two weeks is not long enough! If you've got this far then just book it and go – what are you waiting for.
Mrs Robinson – July 2019

Fred and Zena are excellent hosts. We really appreciated the Friday night barbecue they put on for guests. It was hard work and a late night for them but we all enjoyed fabulous food and great company. The location of the property is so close to beaches and high quality restaurants. Fred went out of his way to give us tips and information on surrounding area. Kitchen in apartment so well equipped made for easy living, Thank you for another great holiday. Our 4th with you now.
Krishna & Tim – July 2019

We stayed at the Alto di Pinarello Hotel and the Apartment Paolina as a two-centre holiday. Although very different, both accommodations lived up to our expectations and in some cases exceeded them. The concierge, Fred, had excellent knowledge of the area and cooked a mean breakfast! The hotel location was ideally suited for exploring the area with its mountain villages, rock pools and scenery.
Hilary & Trevor Howe – June 2019

We had an amazing holiday at Alto di Pinarello. Fred was the perfect host. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and could not have been more thoughtful, especially with our 2-year-old daughter. The location is excellent, an easy stroll to the beach and restaurants and within a few minutes’ drive of the beautiful mountains. The accommodation itself is of a really high standard, with everything you could possibly need provided. As a family it worked perfectly for us. We also went to the barbecue Fred hosted, the food and wine were great. It was excellent value and a real highlight of our week. We had such a brilliant time, we only wish we had booked a fortnight!
Liz & Paul Oldfield – June 2019

This was our first trip as a family of four with two young children and Simpson made the whole experience incredibly straight-forward – everything was thought of in the apartment, and the Simpson team was fantastic. Thank you!
Mrs Murphy – June 2019

We had a wonderful holiday with friends, the accommodation was excellent. Everything you could need – in fact we only ate out one night; it was so beautiful to sit out on the terrace under the stars. Amazing views and location. Especially liked the little touches, the honesty bars, availability of beach equipment, pool towels, the hamper was great for the first night everything we needed for an evening meal. Brilliant – would definitely recommend.
Mrs Clarke – September 2018

Pinarello is a great place to stay if you enjoy the sunshine, walking barefoot along a soft sandy beach and swimming in a warm, crystal clear sea. The pace of life is slow and the locals are friendly. There is a good choice of supermarkets, restaurants, local market and wineries. In fact all the ingredients for a perfect holiday.
Mr & Mrs Foster – September 2018

The perfect location for a family holiday, easy access to a lovely beach and restaurants, plus a good size shared pool back at the hotel, perfect for supervised youngsters after a morning playing on the sand. The partnership with Simpson Travel worked well, the range of toys and books available as well as essential paraphernalia for two little ones was excellent.
Mr I Cosgrove – September 2018

Lovely accommodation, perfect for a family stay as it’s so well equipped for toddlers and tiny people. The toys, books and DVDs in the hotel and the crate of pool toys available outside are all so great, and in really good condition.
Mrs P – September 2018

 

 

Fred, our Simpson Travel representative, was excellent and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The accommodation at Alto di Pinarello was spacious and the pool immaculate. Thank you for a great week.
Mrs Everitt – Lavezzi – August 2018

From start to finish Simpson Travel was the perfect travel company to book our family holiday through. From the moment you land to the moment you leave they cannot help enough. Our accommodation at Alto di Pinarello was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be using Simpson Travel again.
Iain Jamie – Benedettu – July 2018

This was out first time with Simpson Travel and to Corsica – both were superb and we will use them again and return to Corsica. Simpson Travel made the whole experience stress free, with great organisation. The people on the ground are lovely and they even made the car hire process a delight.
John and Angie – June 2018

Our first visit to Corsica and we could not have been more delighted with the location of Alto di Pinarello with wonderful beaches and a selection of quality restaurants nearby. The service given by Simpson Travel was excellent, as we have come to expect.
Mr Saunders – October 2017

We had a wonderful sixth holiday in Corsica. As always the holiday flowed seamlessly. The accommodation was excellent with a beautiful, heated swimming pool. Corsica is a beautiful island with so much to explore – the beaches, old towns, the rivers and the mountains. Walking down to the beach and restaurants was so easy and so pleasant and the Corsicans, as always were so friendly. Thank you once again for a great holiday and where to next year?
Mrs Robinson – September 2017

Another fantastic Simpson Travel holiday. Our rep, Fred, was a wonderful host (he felt more like a host than a rep). Kind, helpful, gracious, knowledgeable – a credit to the organisation. We love Simpson Travel and really don't understand why anyone would travel with any other tour operator if we're honest!!
Miss Gold-Wahlhaus – August 2017

A fantastic location, the beach was a short 5-minute walk away even with two toddlers. The accommodation was immaculate on our arrival and help was always on hand from Fred.
Mr Lighten – July 2017

Thank you Simpson Travel for a wonderful holiday in Corsica. Beautiful accommodation and extremely helpful holiday representatives. The whole experience from the beginning to the end was very positive and we have no hesitation in recommending Simpson Travel to friends and family.
Mrs Galloway – July 2017


Our experience with Simpson Travel exceeded our expectations. The hotel was stunning, the location ideal and our representative informative, kind and helpful. It was our first holiday with our 2-year-old and Simpson took of the stress out of it so we could relax and have fun. We would 100% use them again. Perfection.
Mrs Miller – July 2017

Our Simpson Travel holiday to Pinarello in Corsica was excellent. Well organised. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Lovely property. Hard to see how it could have been better.
Mr Broadway – August 2016

We had not travelled with Simpson Travel for some years and from the moment we made the booking on the phone, we remembered why we always thought so highly of you. The whole process was efficiently carried out and the holiday – from arrival to departure – was excellent. The quality of Alto di Pinarello – from its décor, furnishings and kitchen equipment to the local representative support illustrate why, to my mind, Simpson Travel stands above the rest.
Michael Godwin – Piantarella – June 2018

Great company great reps – we will book again with Simpson Travel.
Mr Roughton – June 2016

Excellent choice of resort and accommodation offered by very professional, efficient and friendly company.
Mrs Mizen – May 2016

A brilliant experience from start to finish. The accommodation was excellent, with everything you could possibly need. We didn't really need the local rep, but he was extremely friendly and very keen and willing to help had we had any need to use her. Thank you.
Mrs Baggott – May 2016

The hotel is very well situated for the beach and restaurants and there was a lovely view from the balcony. Pinarello beach is beautiful, we had a wonderful holiday and would love to return.
Miss Webster – May 2015

Another successful Simpson Travel holiday.
Mrs Owen – May 2015

Corsica is a very special place, with its wild, unspoiled beauty, relaxed Mediterranean pace of life, gently shelving white sand beaches, fringed with pine trees and shimmering clear waters. Perhaps the ultimate chill out location for a summer beach holiday, in fact Corsica has much of what you'd expect from the Caribbean but is so much more accessible, as it's only a short flight away from Gatwick (1 hour 45 mins). If you like beautiful beaches and fabulous French food, this is somewhere you just must go!!
Mrs Tucker – September 2015

A wonderful holiday in a delightful, well equipped and large accommodation with a stunning view from the large balcony. Small complex in beautiful surroundings with a lovely pool area and only a 10-minute stroll to the local sandy beaches and good selection of restaurants. Inclusion of a car allowed exploration of this southern coast of Corsica which is just lovely. Very much recommended.
Mrs Hick – September 2015

Excellent holiday. Booked at short notice. Just what we wanted.
Mr Jones – August 2015

Ideal for being close to the beach and for families. Lovely area.
Mrs Murdoch – 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.
