With its strong, angular shapes and industrial-chic styling, Casa Nera stands in bold and brilliant contrast to the vineyards, pines and open fields that surround it, a polished, architectural statement in the heart of the Corsican countryside.
The villa is large, open-plan and filled with light thanks to the large picture windows and doors which form an almost-continuous wall of glass down one side of the house. The doors slide back to extend the space still further onto a series of dining and sunbathing terraces, each with the back-drop of that timeless vineyard view. The interiors are pared-back and elegant, with everything you need for an indulgently comfortable stay including wi-fi and air-conditioning throughout.
Casa Nera feels deliciously secluded but it is perfectly positioned for exploring both the iconic east coast beaches and the wilder, lesser-known coastline to the west. Figari village, with its handful of small restaurants and shops, is 10 minutes away by car, with the relative sophistication of Porto Vecchio old town and marina just a 20-minute drive.

This was our fourth Simpson holiday to Corsica. We stayed at Casa Nera – a beautiful, secluded villa with spectacular views of the Southern Corsican countryside. It lived up to our previous experiences and in many ways surpassed them for comfort, space and location – an ideal place for the growing family. We visited all our favourite beaches and made the must-do trip to swim in the rock pools in the Solenzara valley. A big thank you to Joelle, the Simpson rep, who went out of her way to make our stay super enjoyable right up to the last minute. We will be looking forward to our next visit!

We have had a wonderful week here at Casa Nera – a lovely villa in such a secluded location. We enjoyed the pool immensely and the starry nights.

Efficient, prompt, reliable and human in a Robotic Age, Simpson Travel reflects the highest of travel business standards.
Mr Kelly – July 2017
I have had a wonderful holiday and would use/recommend Simpson Travel again.
Mr Foster – September 2016
One thing you can almost guarantee with a Simpson Travel holiday is that you are never going to be disappointed. We have had a glorious two weeks in what can only be described as the house of our dreams – unique because it was a home rather than a holiday villa, which has made the holiday so special – apart from amazing beaches and countryside and everything else Corsica is renowned for.
Mrs Beck – June 2016
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
Just across the water from Sardinia, history takes a cosmopolitan turn in the winding streets, imposing citadels and elegant marinas of Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio. A luxury holiday here comes with no shortage of style, and plenty of restaurants, cafés, boutiques and museums. Not far away, you'll also find the family-friendly beaches of Pinarello and pine-shaded Palombaggia, as well as the white sands of Santa Giulia and chic St Cyprien.
