With glimpses of the bay, this small villa is part of a group of dwellings and next to a new hotel that belongs to one family and its style is simple but sweet. Pine, oak and mimosa trees abound and the glorious sands of Palombaggia and Santa Giulia beaches are not far away.

We have loved our stay at Casetta Bianca – fabulous villa and well equipped. The views and garden are lovely and we’ve enjoyed lots of evenings sitting out. Thank you, Daniele, who has been so welcoming, helpful and friendly. We appreciated the information in the villa book and a fantastic welcome pack! Hope to return one day.
Liz, Jimmy, Sam & Ruby – May 2019
We have enjoyed our two weeks at Casetta Bianca – very well equipped villa and an excellent mid stay clean. Kimberly has been attentive and helpful. We loved drives into the mountains – Zonza and Levie. A couple of trips to Bonifacio – excellent boat trip. Go early or long queues and no parking. All in all, a very pleasant visit to Corsica.
Brenda & Ian – September 2018
Excellent stay – you cannot do better than follow Kimberly’s suggestions. The rock pools are a must. We went for dinner at The Belvedere – lovely sitting by the water and they produced a plate of exquisite complimentary canapés! Once again, enormous thanks to Kimberly for being helpful in every way.
Anna & Paul – September 2018
First class holiday experience – from booking to the overall standard of Casetta Bianca and Doniche, quality of Simpson travel representatives and general service.
Mr & Mrs Stevenson – September 2018
Casetta Bianca is very well-equipped villa with lovely views out to the sea and mountains. It is in a very good position for visiting other areas and close to supermarkets. Kimberley, the Simpson Travel representative, was excellent and gave us lots of useful information and recommended some good places to eat.
Mrs Tulloch – September 2018
The Simpson Travel airport representative was fabulous - she was handing out cold water to everyone. We found the villa very easily using the directions, and once there, we discovered a wonderful welcome pack which also included something to create a meal with for the first night and liquid refreshments. Casetta Bianca is a lovely villa. We spent our afternoons in the garden, lunch was always on the balcony watching the boats, and then swimming in the pool and sun bathing. We had a fabulous week chilling out – fab villa, pool, and the beach at the bottom of the garden. Kimberley, our Simpson Travel representative, was lovely very knowledgeable and we knew that if there was anything we needed, all we had to do was ask.
Claire Growcoot – July 2018
We really enjoyed ourselves. Loved climbing at the adventure park and in the forest near Three Rock Pools/gorge. The villa, pool and beach were fabulous. We are looking forward to coming again one day.
Charlie, Sophie, Henry, Toby and baby Freddy – August 2018
We had a lovely week and made many trips. Bonifacio – the little train up the hill is worth the €5 especially when it’s 34 degrees as it had been this week. Also, the Escaliers du Roy were fantastic. We visited Porto Vecchio. Palombaggia is fantastic with aquamarine waters and enough space for everyone. The best of all is the villa and the swimming pool. We found the villa well equipped – fantastic having all the basics. Kimberly has been available when we needed and not at all intrusive and her recommendations are to be used. Thank you.
Hannah, Nick & Anya – July 2018
Great villa, exactly what we wanted – beach, pool, terrace, great views and Kimberly is ace. Extremely knowledgeable about Corsica – beaches, restaurants and excursions. The villa is a great place to chill. We ate in most of the time and great local wines from a range of supermarkets. We have had a great time, we will be back!
Andrew & Claire – July 2018
We loved the villa, the view and the pool. We used the villa as a base to explore the South. Kayaked around Bonifacio, hiked the mountains and swam in the waterfalls at Zonza and Bavella and explored many of the nearby beaches. Kimberly was absolutely amazing! All her suggestions – restaurants, beach and wines were fabulous. Thank you so much! Only wish we had another week.
Beata, Alan, Anna & Dominic – July 2018
Fabulous views and an excellent villa. Would highly recommend Le Lodge in Porto Vecchio port, excellent food and great value – staff excellent. Great thanks to Kimberly who was always available, very knowledgeable. Would use Simpson Travel again.
Jenny, Jeremy & Mark – July 2018
We’ve had a marvellous week. A lot of relaxing and eating! The villa is lovely and very well equipped. The view is stunning and certainly takes some beating (we have taken so many photos!). Huge thanks to Kimberly for going the extra mile. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful. Hope to be back.
Brian & Judy – June 2018
A great stay at Casetta Bianca. We enjoyed the swimming very much, whether on the villa’s little beach or at some of the other incredible beaches nearby. Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio were both great evenings out – lots to see and do. Thank you to Kimberly for being so helpful with advice on places to see and restaurants to try.
Mark, Lola, Kamilla & Polina – September 2017
A very pleasant stay in Casetta Bianca, the weather has been very good. Kimberly has been very helpful and gone out of her way to recommend things and help with any issues that arose.
The Mcleod Family – September 2017
Had a wonderful, relaxing week. With the beach at the bottom of the garden, the swimming pool and the wonderful surrounding towns there are plenty of ways to unwind! Would definitely return after a great time with the family.
Mrs Smith – September 2016
We had a fantastic holiday to Corsica. A hidden gem of an Island with great weather, scenery and food, not to forget the rosé wines! The service we received from everyone was 'top notch'. The flight was the best charter flight we have ever used, good seating and space and friendly service. The reps on arrival and departure on our return were a delight. A big shout out for the friendly service from Roberto who speedily sorted out issues with our TV then wi-fi (which is an essential now!). Having our own pool was a luxury which was so worth it with direct access to the beach made us feel extra special. Sure to come back again with Simpson Travel.
Mr Clark – August 2016
Our first time with Simpson Travel. Excellent accommodation and very helpful local rep. We will definitely be back! Thank you.
Mr Foster – August 2016
Casetta Bianca is a super villa, very well suited for a family holiday. The accommodation is practical and thoughtful, the outside spaces, pool and position are superb.
Mrs Turner – July 2015
We had a wonderful two weeks – the sun has been out every day, no rain and just the perfect temperature – delightful! We enjoyed the pool every day and wondered at the magnificent scenery surrounding the villa – a joy to watch day and night. We recommend getting up early morning and seeing the sun rise over Palombaggia, a beautiful beach and then must do a sunset at Tonnara beach, it is so stunning! We greatly enjoyed a boat ride and had an amazing day and believe it to be very worth doing. Kimberly, our rep, has been amazing, the most helpful we have ever had, nothing is too much for her – she is a credit to Simpson Travel.
The Crowley Family – August 2017
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.
