Located in Clos Canarelli, a new vineyard belonging to the famous winemaker, Yves Canarelli, Niellucciu is named after the grape that produces his award-winning wine. The villa is the perfect combination of a traditional Corsican bergerie from the outside and yet has all the modern creature comforts on the inside.

Niellucciu has been decorated to a high standard with neutral colours and wonderful finishing touches such as the ceiling and the chandeliers. The bedrooms are all en-suite with modern Italian style marble showers and there is plenty of space outside to bask in the sun and enjoy the pool.  And, when it gets too hot, there is a shaded area for al fresco dining.

The Estate winery is a three minute drive away and wine tasting can be arranged for guests who would like to sample and purchase some of the delicious award-winning wines.

The villa is in a rural setting yet the local wild beaches are within easy reach. There are a couple of restaurants and a local supermarket for daily croissants in the local village of Figari which is just a ten minute drive away. The famous Chez Marco seafood restaurant on the beach at La Tonarra is also close by.

Footnote
Niellucciu is a convenient 10-minute drive from Figari airport, which means planes are visible and sometimes audible depending on the wind direction. However, it’s not a busy airport and daily flights are relatively infrequent.

Customer feedback

Beautiful villa location to enjoy the peace and sunset vista with your sundowner. The pool is perfect temperature and we loved every day and of course poolside lounging. Thank you to Anna from Simpson Travel and thank you to the excellent cleaners. Thank you & hope you enjoy.
Fiona et al – June 2017

A lovely villa in a lovely position! A great base for exploring the South of Corsica. All in all, a great holiday, Corsica is a stunning island. Many thanks to Muriel for all her help, too.
Mr Horwood – September 2016

Wonderful holiday, safe in the knowledge that the Simpson Travel rep would respond to any problems we might have encountered, every thing was as good as described on website.
Mrs Clark – July 2016

Super property, peaceful yet easy access to village, nearby towns, beaches and mountains. 
Mr Arnold – June 2016

Really good holiday experience from start to finish.
Mr Trimble – May 2016

I am a huge cynic. This was our first time with Simpson Travel. 3rd time to Corsica. Really impressed. I am not easily impressed. Attendance at Gatwick, Figari great. 1 call, 1 holiday booking, accommodation, car, flights sorted. I get why this business works. Clients love the service. Joined up. Well done all.
Mr Ahern – August 2015

We scheduled our vacation only a month out, but found Simpson Travel to be very helpful with booking a villa and airfares. We loved Niellucciu. What a darling house set in a vineyard. So quiet, with fantastic views! The pool is much bigger than it looks on the website. It's hard to leave the house, it's so lovely and peaceful. But, it is also the perfect location from which to explore some of the best beaches on Corsica and some of the best towns. We loved Figari, Bonifacio and Sartene. Can't wait to return!
Mrs Shanahan – August 2015

 

We had a wonderful family holiday in Corsica which offered everything in terms of scenery - beach, stunning mountains and beautiful towns to explore. The villa was of excellent standard in an ideal location. It felt private yet was close to local amenities, beaches and places to visit. We spent many evenings on the fabulous terrace, enjoying the view with a glass of local Rose. A great two weeks. Many thanks.
Mrs Feltes – June 2015

A holiday we will remember, thank you Simpson Travel. From landing through to departure your reps were supportive and helpful. A superb villa and location, making the whole round experience stress-free and very enjoyable. We will be back !
Ms Baxter – June 2015

Great villa, wonderful walks and weather - who could ask for more? Thank you very much to everyone at Simpson Travel for all the help and effort that contributed to superb holiday. Anna was extremely helpful and went out of her way to accommodate all of our needs with particular reference to our one year old - who's thanks we offer on his behalf!
Mr Greenland – May 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.
