Casa Julia is one of a rare new breed of ultra-stylish properties on this essentially traditional island. The house is surrounded by what feels like your own private forest, floodlit by night to add a hint of drama and romance to dinner by the pool. Vast sliding picture windows bring the outside in, while the funky hanging basket chairs take the inside out. The boutique-hotel styling contrasts nicely with the laid-back local atmosphere of nearby Ste Lucie de Porto Vecchio, just a short stroll away. Here you can find a few small restaurants, a supermarket and a delicatessen. Some of Corsica’s most iconic beaches, including Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Pinarello, are a short drive away.

Customer feedback

Thank you for our wonderful fifth time at Pinarello Beach House – as fantastic as always. See you next year.
The Gisbornes – August 2018

Thank you for letting us stay in wonderful Casa Julia. You made it possible for us to do all the amazing things we did, like tree climbing, swimming in a massive rock pool, going on an amazing boat trip in Bonifacio and visiting awesome beaches. The restaurants here are amazing. Thank you.
Megan (aged 10), Liv (aged 8), Finn (aged 5) Lucy & Chris – August 2018

This was our second visit to Pinarello Beach House – a wonderful house and even lovelier than before now that it has a pool! We love Pinarello – the croissant run in the morning down the beach before the crowds, drinks at Ruscana and supper by the sea. We saw the resident tortoise – but only once, despite us looking. Our other highlight was a kayak trip around the island, taking in the super yacht en route! Very relaxing and Maeva, the Simpson Travel representative, was super helpful.
The Gibbard Family – July 2018

This was the first time we had used Simpson Travel and they were extremely helpful from booking, pre-departure information to assistance whilst at Casa Julia. We had a relaxing holiday at the villa, which has fabulous views. It is spacious and stylish with a much-enjoyed pool. Everything you could need on holiday is within the villa too! We enjoyed trips to Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio old town and into the mountains at Zonza. The local bakery does excellent ‘pain au raisins’ and bread each day! A most enjoyable holiday.
The Hedleys – July 2018

A beautiful memory with our family. Pinarello Beach House is the most exquisite place.
Jane, Michael, Oli, Holly & Sophie – May 2018

Everyone was very friendly and helpful at Simpson Travel both in the U.K. and in the resort. We'd definitely book again with them and have already recommended to friends and family. 
Mrs Baker – July 2017

Simpson Travel cares about its customers which puts them as a leader in their field!
Mrs Boustead – June 2017

Simpson Travel provides top, reliable service and the reps are always super helpful and friendly. They are now my 'go to' tour operator.
Mrs Eccles – September 2016

 

 

Casa Julia was a lovely villa in a peaceful location yet just a couple of minutes' walk from local restaurants and a grocery store...which was perfect for picking up fresh croissants and pain au chocolat in the mornings. It was well furnished and had everything that you need. The pool was the perfect size for the children and we enjoyed many family games of water volleyball. The local beach at Pinarello was just a five-minute drive and there was a good selection of restaurants there too.
Mr Quinn – August 2015

An excellent holiday, one of our best.
Mrs Hallsworth – June 2015

An excellent holiday, well managed from start to finish by a professional company who exceeded our expectations.
Mr Birchall – September 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.
