First timers to Corsica often ask us to recommend the best beaches on the island, and while it is a difficult choice, the magnificent, white sand sweep of Santa Giulia inevitably ranks in our top three. The pale, turquoise waters of this crescent-shaped bay are unusually calm and shallow, barely knee deep and just right for little ones to splash and play in with confidence. There are water sports, beach bars and even a little shuttle service to Porto Vecchio in the high season: in short, all the key ingredients for the perfect beach holiday.
Just 3 minutes’ walk from Santa Giulia Beach are the Costa Nera Suites. Sleek, chic and brilliantly located, the 47 apartments are housed in eight separate units to maximise peace and privacy. Each apartment has a large, private, partly-shaded terrace equipped with contemporary deck furniture. Wander down to the local épicerie for a breakfast baguette before a lazy morning on the beach, then retire to the privacy of your apartment in the heat of the day – ideal for young children or anyone else in need of a nap. Properties this close to a Corsican beach are as rare as August rain; to find something of the calibre of Costa Nera in this location is a privilege indeed.

We found the Simpson Travel experience to be of a very high standard from booking through to the service in resort and the accommodation itself. Thank you for the welcome pack and biscuits on departure! We were puzzled by the suggestion to pick up provisions at the Spar at Figari when the one at Porto Vecchio (on the N198) would have offered a more extensive choice. Nonetheless, we found everything we needed. Getting around Corsica was easy and we enjoyed the use of the car.
Mr Gordan – July 2017
The combination of Simpson and Tots made the holiday perfect for us. The combination of Simpson's skills and the child friendly package was invaluable.
Mr Price – September 2016
The Costa Nera suites in Corsica are modern, of a very high standard and a perfect location for a family beach holiday. Santa Giulia beach is beautiful and perfect for young children. Our local rep Samantha was absolutely amazing and went out of her way to help us get sorted when we got a flat tyre on route from the airport. Samantha made what could have been a very stressful start to a holiday (particularly with 2 small children), quick and straight forward to resolve and for that we cannot thank her enough.

Great, professional operator
Mr McGarry – May 2016
Booking was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Information supplied reference directions to hotel were particularly good. Hotel and staff very good, all in all a very good experience for our first booking with Simpson Travel. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Mrs Weatherley – September 2015
We were once again very impressed by the level of service and quality of accommodation by Simpson Travel. From the point of booking the holiday, the entire experience is second to none. Our fourth holiday with Simpson Travel...roll on next year's!
Mrs Adams – August 2015
I think the best thing I can say about our fantastic holiday in beautiful Corsica, is that we've been back in the U.K for half a day now, and we are already trying to work out when we can return! The accommodation is excellent, and literally a few minutes walk away from the most incredible beach, though there are many more, equally fabulous ones just a short drive away! Just go. I'm pretty sure that you'll love it there as much as we did.
Mr Hull – August 2015
We spent a wonderful week at Costa Near suites, Corsica. An ideal base for exploring Corsica or just relaxing (after the 3 minute walk) on the beautiful Santa Giulia beach. My only complaint is that a week wasn't long enough
Mrs Snaith – August 2015
Having holidayed with Simpson Travel for many years, their service is a dream: delightful staff, both office-bound and on-site, smooth and trouble-free booking process (both accommodating of special needs and flexible), helpful and ever so-friendly reps, delightful dedicated check-in, perfectly-timed/highly convenient flights ... all-in-all a flawless service. Would not hesitate to highly recommend.
Mr Willis – July 2015
I think we stumbled on the best holiday to take with small children. This is the perfect place. Five minutes walk from the most beautiful beach with shallow water perfect for children. If you tire of the beach the mountains are easy to get into and absolutely breathtaking. Wonderful place.
Mrs Smith – June 2014
Booking with Simpson Travel for our trip to Corsica was an excellent idea, as our holiday was flawless. Everything from our lovely modern accommodation and its location near a breathtaking beach, to the ease of having everything set up for us beforehand (flights, car, etc) was ideal. The on-site rep was a call away to offer any advice on excursions, but the recommendations found in the accommodation for 'things to do' was so informative that we really didn't need anything else! Based on our experience, we will definitely be using Simpson Travel again on future holidays.
Ms Kahne – June 2014
Great holiday, expectations were met and more! Very conveniently located, Costa Nera is great to access all the local sites and restaurants. Very helpful staff, always happy to answer questions. Liz was great explaining everything. We really enjoyed the stay in Costa Nera and Corsica. Will recommend to family and friends. Hope to come back soon. Thank you for one of the best holidays we’ve had!
Ms Tan – 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.
* 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.
