Customer feedback

Once again Simpson Travel has come up trumps. Thank you for two excellent weeks in Corsica, a fabulous place to visit and staying in two different villas gave us a chance to explore slightly different areas. Both villas, Niellucciu and Mon Cabanon were of a high standard, and the care and attention from the reps was excellent...we will be back.
Mrs P Garland – June 2018

This is our seventh year here in Corsica and it is as lovely as ever. The weather has been great. Pinarello remains our favourite beach. Thanks to David for his local knowledge and hospitality and Freddie being so welcoming. Beautiful location, house, sun, sea, food and much more. We will be back.
Karen & Nigel – July 2017

We'd come away for some rest and relaxation and what a beautiful place to do this. We have made full use of the superb accommodation and been and around the property a good percentage of our week. We ventured up to the mountains for two walks and explored the rock pools and 'northern' beaches as recommended by David. His visit on our first afternoon was a good way to orientate ourselves quickly. Bonifacio was a good trip and a morning in Porto Vecchio old town was lovely. All this said, just spending time here, whether by the pool, on the balcony or sitting at the table looking out was great. Many thanks to Freddie and Florence for sharing their piece of Corsica. 
Elizabeth & David – July 2017

We have now holidayed in Corsica seven times with Simpson Travel and each holiday has been absolutely brilliant. Mon Cabanon was definitely one of the nicest properties we have stayed in with stunning views across to Porto Vecchio. The local representative was extremely knowledgeable about the local area and gave us some helpful tips.
Mr Felstead – July 2017

We were bowled over by our experience with Simpson Travel. We were upgraded to a fabulous villa when roadworks were due to start near to our intended apartment. Their attention to detail is superb. I knew Corsica would be great but I hadn't expected Simpson Travel would make it even better. Our next European holiday will definitely be booked with them.
Mr Mills – June 2017

Superior service and attention to detail from beginning to end.
Mrs Riemer – July 2016

Lovely villa! Great holiday, David (rep) was so helpful. Pool refreshing. Bonifacio is wonderful. Will return one day. 
Sally & Phil – June 2016

Mon Cabanon is a lovely place to use as a base in the south of Corsica. It is a 10-minute drive to Porto Vecchio and its lovely beaches, and it is at the base of the mountain range for wonderful walks and excellent quad biking. The accommodation is well equipped and has fantastic views to the sea. We had a great time. Thank you.
Mrs Mahony – May 2016

 

 

This was my second time at Mon Cabanon and it won’t be the last. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the mountains and Porto Vecchio – it must be one of the best places to be in Corsica. Although sitting by your own pool there with a glass of wine, comes a close second! You never want to come home! The mountains, the beaches, the wildlife are all wonderful. One of my favourites, swimming in the pool and watching red kites circle overhead. The word idyllic sums it up.
Judy Dunn – June 2018

Once again, we found the experience provided by Simpson Travel exceeded our expectations. Mon Cabanon was well equipped. There was a wonderful view from the balcony over the valley with Porto Vecchio in the distance. We had a very relaxing time there, well away from the hustle and bustle. The villa is well situated with the coast downhill, and the mountains uphill. The support from Kimberley (the Simpson Travel representative) and Freddie and Florence (the owners) was not intrusive but added to our experience.
Peter & Barbara Yardley – May 2018

Mon Cabonon was absolutely beautiful, you should be very proud to offer such a lovely venue. Everything was perfect in terms of arrival, hire car pick up and the directions were spot on (the first time I've driven abroad so was a little nervous!). David was the rep for the cabin and he was very knowledgeable, not just about the area but with specifics to do too. The delivery of some food for the first night was a very welcoming touch. All in all, Simpson Travel are first class, please keep it up...the first website we'll be checking for next year's holiday is yours. Thank you.
Mr Nicholls – August 2015

Absolutely fantastic in every way. Could not fault anything! Best tour operator I have ever used and I used to be a travel agent! Faultless, well done Simpson Travel!
Mrs Browes – July 2015

Mon Cabanon is a fantastic and very private retreat in a lovely location with amazing views. So many decorative and practical features from the owners which made this place very special. We had a wonderful relaxing week's holiday, just what we wanted.
Mr Askwith – July 2015

This has been our first visit to Corsica and this has been our best holiday to date. For us this is exactly what we were looking for, the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Mrs Broadfield – June 2014

It was our first trip to Corsica, and booked at the very last minute, but Mon Cabanon was just perfect! A sweet little cabin a short drive up into the mountains from nearby Porto Vecchio, you get the best of both worlds. Close to the gorgeous beaches of the south east coast but also away from the hustle of the main towns and resorts. The cabin has everything you need for a getaway week and was spotless and well looked after by on-site owners, Florence and Freddy who were both lovely and ready to share their favourite places with us! Our rep was really helpful, shared with us her favourite spots and restaurant advice. Our favourite parts of the week – an amazing walk along the headland near Bonifacio to Petit and Grand Sperone beaches; dinner at Costa Marina (best pizza experienced in a long time!); a day chilling out on Palombaggia beach and a drive up to Zonza to see the beautiful interior of the island. Overall, we thought it was a beautiful unspoilt island. Simpson Travel was great and we would definitely use them again.
Mrs Robson – May 2014

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.
