The hamlet of Pinarello sits on one of Southern Corsica's most beautiful bays, just north of Porto Vecchio. Take a stroll along the sandy beach or escape the heat of the day in the old church or nearby restaurants. Every August, you can also expect the melodic intervention of the annual jazz festival.
Even better, you couldn't be closer to the beach and a rooftop swimming pool to enjoy the wonderful views. Alternatively, should you need a change of scene, a day-long mountain excursion offers a welcome adventure into the unspoilt island landscape.

We were very impressed with Simpson Travel – from the commencement of our journey to our return, the whole process was well organised and stress free. Everything was aimed at keeping the client happy and informed so overall a very good experience to say the least.
Mrs Bourne – September 2019
This was our first time with Simpson and everything was excellent and we will definitely be booking through you again.
C Davies – September 2019
This was our first experience of a Simpson holiday, and we were definitely impressed. From the knowledgeable and helpful booking team, the pre-travel information, the quality of the hotel, to all the travel details, everything was very well organised with a personal touch. We would definitely recommend Simpson Travel to take care of your holiday.
Mrs Sergeant – September 2019
Location, breakfast, staff and introduction by Simpson – 10/10. Very much looking forward to a return visit.
The Murrays – September 2019
Le Pinarello is a lovely small hotel. The website pictures are totally accurate – it really is on the beach. The staff can't do enough to make sure that you enjoy your stay. I'd recommend it for couples.
David – September 2018
We would recommend Simpson Travel to anyone. They provided us with a great holiday from the transfer to and from the airport to the fabulous service, location and quality of our hotel.
Ralph Snow – September 2018
Hôtel le Pinarello is in a fabulous location with excellent staff who were always attentive and friendly. Sunbeds were always available on the beach for hotel residents. The inclusion of car hire for the whole two weeks gave us the flexibility to travel around the island at leisure.
Jacqui Byrom – September 2018
We had a very good holiday in the excellent Hotel le Pinarello. We liked the bar area overlooking the sea, and there is a selection of good restaurants within walking distance. The beach was amazing with easy access and lovely clear and warmish water; perfect for elderly swimmers! There are comfortable sunbeds with good shade as part of the package with plenty of towels. Valet parking for the hire car was a plus and came with no charge – excellent. Altogether a first-class holiday experience.
Arthur Douglas-Nugent – June 2018
We so enjoyed our stay at Hotel Pinarello. Everything was excellent, from its beachside location with plenty of sunbeds to our clean and bright room – and the view from our room and balcony was just lovely. The food was excellent and of an extremely high standard. We did as another reviewer suggested and lunched in the hotel (fabulous food!). All the staff were extremely pleasant, smiling and helpful – from the top people down to the lovely, friendly cleaners. An excellent hotel and I would highly recommend it.
Mrs Serjeant – May 2018
Pinarello a wonderful gem of a hotel. Stunning location with fabulous views across the bay. Junior Suite – gorgeous and very modern and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely (delicious fruit and pastries) and the lunches on the terrace, although very expensive, were a real treat. Beach outside the hotel nice but a short walk takes you to one of the best beaches I have seen in Europe. Lots to see and do in the south east of Corsica too. All in all a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location.
Mrs Galazka – September 2016
We had a wonderful stay at the beautiful Hotel le Pinarello. The rooms, beach, food and the amazing pool were all excellent, and we must particularly recommend the high level of service and friendliness of the staff.
Mrs J Jackson – June 2018
Hotel le Pinarello, in the South of Corsica, is very well located for sightseeing of Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio, the mountains (Bavella), Filitosa archaeological site, and other places, including lots of beautiful beaches. The hotel itself is directly on a private well-manicured beach, and is surprisingly peaceful and respectable. There is the possibility of all sorts of watersports and sailing, and is very child-friendly. The beach is also extremely safe for children, being on a very gentle slope, with very little tide or undercurrent. There is even a children-only time of day in the small but nice infinity pool on the roof. The breakfasts were delicious and catered for every taste, and always plenty of helpful friendly staff. We had a most enjoyable time there.
Mrs Abbott – September 2015
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.
