We love the house and garden, pool a bit too cold some days. The best of the Simpson villas we have stayed in – lots of shade as well as sunny areas. The views are stunning. Anna very helpful and only a text message or phone call away. Hope to be back next year.
Bryan & Celia – September 2019
A fabulous holiday. We particularly enjoyed Col de Bavella, Roccapina beach, Rondinara, Pinarello beach – park under the pines and then head to Solenzara for an ice cream at the harbour. Top motoring along the D59 to Zonza for a crêpe. We also liked the pizza van men, garden tortoise, evening sunsets, the stars and pastries from Sucre Sel in Sotta.
The Lewis family – August 2019
We have loved our two weeks on this beautiful island. We have found the people to be warm and friendly. The villa is perfect and the pool is great. We would recommend Le Relais for a meal – the food and staff made for lovely evenings. We found Anna to be very helpful and can’t wait to come back to Corsica again in the future.
Jacki & Des – October 2018
A very peaceful and relaxing week spent by the pool and on the beaches. We would recommend the SPAR at Porto Vecchio for meat – great brochettes for the BBQ. Le Relais in Sotta was good for a French experience. Santa Guilia was our favourite beach, least challenging drive, and shortest walk. Euros 5 parking fee was worth it. The beach had good snorkelling but was very busy by lunch time. The patisserie in the village has incredible cakes and tarts and is well worth a try.
The Wades – July 2018
A lovely peaceful week in this beautiful little villa. We loved all the moths and butterflies in the trees. Is it always like this or did we just hit Butterfly Week? Great walks along the coast around Pianottoli Caldarello, Chevanu and Bruzzi – and around the Baie de Figari. Beautiful beaches and very quiet. Wild flowers everywhere. Forgot to mention the mules in the field across the valley. Wonderful!
Alastair & Philippa – June 2018
Lovely villa and lovely places and the beach is special. Anna was really helpful with everything in the Simpson information book. With lovely places to go and eat it was amazing.
The Whelan Family – June 2018
Another fabulous holiday on this fabulous island with Simpsons. Although the weather wasn’t perfect to begin with, it meant we could visit Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio without over heating nor feeling we were missing out on pool/beach time. We have been to the mountains, the beaches, chilled out by the pool here and generally had a wonderful time. Something for us all – aged 15, 18 and 2 and somewhere between 40 and 50! Now that is a feat indeed and there hasn’t been a moment when we weren’t all smiling.
The Webber Family – June 2018
We had an excellent week here in Casa Ste. The villa is comfortable and the views amazing. On a cooler day, we recommend a visit to L’Ospedale and a little further on there is a breath-taking walk to 180 degree waterfalls at the La Cascade de Piscia di Gallu. Wonderful beach at Palombaggia and Santa Giulia where you can eat lunch right next to the stunning clear water. Bonifacio is worth a visit for the clifftop views and alleyways. Would definitely return to this amazing island.
The Percival Family – May 2018
A fabulous villa. We have been to Corsica many times – our favorite holiday destination – and this has been the best villa we have ever stayed in – nicely designed, good layout, comfortable and clean. The setting is wonderful, it is incredibly peaceful. The surroundings of the pool and the garden are beautiful and the view is stunning.
Jennie, John, Xanthe – August 2017
We found your team excellent and very helpful. Our rep, Steve, was quite superb and very jovial. Nothing was too much trouble. Dave at the airport was very helpful, offering his guidance on what was best for us at the terminal. Yet another good holiday with Simpson Travel. Thanks to all.
The Holland Family – June 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Corsica. We couldn't have wished for a better villa than Casa Sté. It was ideal and one the of the best villas we have ever stayed in. This was our second holiday with Simpson Travel and we continue to be impressed.
Mrs Norris –- August 2015
The villa was excellent with a beautiful and good-sized pool which had great views. It is located within easy reach of many of the attractions of the South of Corsica. Corsica has an amazing combination of dramatic mountains which take about an hour and a half to reach, combined with many sandy beaches and coastlines. There are loads of places to eat out with very good quality French and Corsican food which generally costs about the same as the UK.
Mr Owen – August 2014
Simpson Travel has been fantastic from start to finish and have made this the most stress free holiday ever. Casa Sté was a fantastic property providing everything we needed to make our stay as relaxing as we needed. Zena and Yann were great local reps – very knowledgeable with information and quick to respond to queries. Thank you Simpson Travel – you have spoiled us!
Mrs Neville – June 2014
This was out first time with Simpson Travel and we have been really impressed. You have taken good care of us all the way through the process of selecting and booking the holiday through to visiting us to make sure everything was ok, which it was. The villa we stayed in was excellent, 21st-century comfort and elegance that made us feel relaxed and we had a lovely holiday. Oh and thanks for arranging the perfect weather for our trip too!
Mr Nixon – September 2013
We have fallen in love with Corsica and the villa. It gave us everything we wanted. The view is spectacular – we had a really relaxing week. Thanks Simpson Travel for the smooth holiday – big thanks to Jo for looking after us. We will be back!
Ms Kovacs – September 2013
Casa Sté more than lived up to expectations. It is beautifully appointed, well equipped and set in attractive gardens. We particularly enjoyed a swim in the pool each day after sightseeing. Whilst the villa is located in a rural setting, a drive to either Porto Vecchio or Bonifacio is less than half-an-hour away. In the villa Simpson Travel provides an excellent guide with many other helpful suggestions for days out, best beaches, restaurants and much more. It was our first visit to the very beautiful island of Corsica and we hope to return again soon.
Mrs Daw – June 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.
* 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.
