Alzitella is perched on the hillside below the village of Pietra Longa di Salvini, enjoying spectacular mountain and sea views. What lies below is no less breathtaking: buzzing Porto Vecchio, the cream and turquoise beaches of Santa Giulia and Palombaggia, and fold upon fold of dense, fragrant maquis.

The contemporary design of Alzitella is very much of today, with no compromise on space, light or functionality. The decking around the kidney-shaped pool sprawls the length of the house; the wall-to-wall French windows lead out onto the broad, shady veranda; the extended granite surfaces in the kitchen double as a breakfast bar; the technology even includes wifi.

The sleepy village is easily accessible by car, since the road leading up to it skirts the grounds below, and those picture postcard beaches are a ten minute drive away.

Customer feedback

Beautiful vistas with the scent of the maquis filling the air early morning and evening. A very tranquil corner of Corsica with visits by blue nuthatches for their early evening bath in the remaining sprinkler water. Would recommend shopping locally at Proxi in Sotta – the owners are so obliging and the drive down there (take left turn at ‘bins corner’) is delightful on the backroads. Our day in the mountains met with a ‘lucky’ diversion on the D59 from our original destination of Levie to the thermal baths at Caldane and on to Sartene, a wonderful citadel with a huge resistance history and legacy. A real gem on the other side of the Cagna mountains. Great gelato and cocktails too! P.S. Huge thanks to Sam for her guidance, patience and tenacity. A real asset to anyone’s stay and very kind.
The Massam Family – September 2017

This villa is lovely! Thank you to Sam and the owner of repairing and replacing the TV after the storm. Not really warm enough for the pool and a ‘windy week’ but that didn’t stop us enjoying Palombaggia beach (park on the road and walk down to Tamaricciu). Petit Sperone is a must – walk round the bay from Piantarella. The mountains are spectacular! We also enjoyed Sartene and Filitosa very much and Bonifacio. On our last day we packed in Santa Giulia (walk along towards the marina and find a perfect small beach – lovely water) and Rondinara which was exquisite – right down to the passing cows on the beach! Restaurants on the beach are expensive locally but ‘Sputria’ in Porto Vecchio near the church is good for lunch. We enjoyed the electric blinds – I touch and they all close. A special thank you to Sam! Great advice and updates.
Jane and Grahame Sammons – September 2017

This is the third time we have traveled to Corsica with Simpson Travel, the first two holidays being some years ago. How right we were to return once again, both to Corsica and with Simpson. Such a beautiful island and a great villa (Alzitella) with pool in a great location high above some wonderful beaches between Porto-Vecchio and Bonafacio. And, Simpson's impeccable service seems to have got even better, everything going off without a hitch. Very helpful reps. Glorious weather helped too of course. We would find it hard to find fault with our two weeks away.
Mr Burdett – August 2017

 

Our holiday villa in Corsica booked through Simpson Travel was a wonderful experience. From the professionalism of the booking agents, and overseas reps. The attention to detail of related things like car hire, flights, valet parking, on-line management of your booking, request to provide some extras for our 3 yr old. It was all 5 star. I don't want to say where we stayed as I want to go back there again and again.
Mr Jones – June 2017

A beautiful villa with the 'wow' factor. The villa gardens have been very creatively landscaped to blend in with the natural environment and surroundings.
Mr Brockwell – June 2015

Best holiday service we have ever experienced. Every member of staff without exception was helpful, flexible, prompt and efficient. The villa was also the best we have ever had. I am reluctant to recommend Corsica as I don't want it to change. The development of the island has been brilliantly done.
Mr Boydon – June 2014

Stunning setting: beautiful sea view in one direction and dramatic mountain views in the other. A wonderful villa to spend a week in, especially when days out were cut short by our 8 month old baby. Many thanks to Simpson Travel.
Miss Eltringham – June 2014

Beautiful location. Magical place.
Mrs Ward – August 2013

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.
