Customer feedback

We had a lovely week at Stella Cadent for my 70th birthday and my baby grandson even learnt to walk in the large open-plan kitchen. The villa is in a beautiful quiet area, not overlooked and the pool was wonderful. The supermarkets are only a 5-minute drive away and well-stocked. We loved Pinarello beach best of all, and especially Le Rouf restaurant beside the beach. Sophie, our rep, was delightful and easy to contact. I would highly recommend this villa – the setting is perfect and quiet swims in the pool looking at the Col de Bavella were bliss.
Dorothy – June 2019

It was a joy to wake up to the glorious mountain view each day. Stella Cadent was very comfortable and we loved swimming in the pool. We really enjoyed the beaches: Pinarello, St Cyprien and Palombaggia are all lovely. We had an excellent day out in Bonifacio and particularly enjoyed a boat trip. We also enjoyed a couple of trips into the mountains including a trek to a waterfall.
The Alywards – August 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday in Corsica. Villa Stella Cadent is spacious, pretty and in a perfect location. We hardly had to drive a long time to get anywhere. My favourite part was the pool with a stunning view of the mountains. My advice to others using the villa is to go to Bonifacio. It may be a bit of a distance, but it is totally worth it.
Oliver (aged 12) – July 2018

Stella Cadent is a gorgeous villa and we loved Corsica. Thank you Simpson Travel! We visited Pinarello, St Cyprien and Palombaggia beaches. All shallow and lovely. The natural pools are definitely worth a visit, but arrive early to get a good spot. The boat trip was wonderful, especially when it went into the cave.
The Goodchild Family – July 2018

Corsica and its people are ‘chaleureuse’ (warm and friendly). We had daily swims under blue skies framed by green forests and spectacular mountain peaks. We looked for restaurants off the beaten track and found two delightful ones in Araggio. Beautiful beaches, warm waters and delightful Villa Stella Cadent to return to – what more could one want?
Mr & Mrs James – June 2018

We had a fantastic week staying at Villa Stella Cadent. This was our first time in Corsica and we are already planning to return next year. The combination of great weather, beaches, mountains and food is difficult to beat. We enjoyed many mornings on the beach. Pinarello is especially good for young children. Santa Giulia is also beautiful and worth the drive. A trip into the mountains is also very worthwhile. We made two trips to swim in the mountain river near the ‘Les 3 Piscines’ restaurant, where the crystal clear and surprisingly warm water was the reward for an adventurous scramble down the hill from the car park. We saw the tortoise on two occasions and looked forward to his visits whilst playing in the pool and gardens. The pool toys were a great addition. Thank you to the Cuccis and Simpson Travel for a great holiday!
The Carradine & Chadwick Family – June 2018



Our first time in Corsica and it won't be our last. We loved this place. The mix of mountains and beaches was wonderful. We enjoyed all the local attractions suggested. The weather has been wonderful every day. David was great and full of good recommendations. A wonderful family holiday. Thank you Simpson Travel.  
The Thorne Family – August 2017

It's been hot! We have had a great time. It's been our first time staying at a villa and the children have loved the pool to themselves. David has been great (Simpson Travel rep). Call on him if you need anything, he's been an absolute star. All that is left to say is – enjoy yourselves!
The Kateria Family – July 2017

Our first visit to Corsica is all that we hoped for. Comfortable villa, superb pool with spectacular views. We enjoyed the beaches and restaurants. We were visited by the tortoise on our last morning, and from several cats during the week. A very enjoyable holiday.
The Quinn Family – June 2017

For the past two weeks our holiday has been very relaxed, sunny and fun. Hope to visit again soon!
The Morris Family – August 2016

A wonderful week here at Stella Cadent. Mornings invariably spent on one of a number of beautiful beaches. Afternoons by the pool with the stunning mountain backdrop. 
The Wilson Family – June 2016

Another wonderful week here in sunny Corsica. Thanks to Simpson Travel and David for their efficient organisation and help again. Stella Cadent provided us with comfortable accommodation with a great pool and amazing views. We look forward to another Corsican holiday soon.
Sue & John – June 2016

It has been a very hot week here. The sky has been blue and the pool has been shimmering invitingly to us every day. We find the beach at Pinarello just lovely with clear waters that beg to be paddled in.
Mrs Pittack – June 2015

Very happy again with the Simpson Travel experience. Great travel, BA from Gatwick and great accommodation on a wonderful island, Corsica.
Mr Lewis – June 2015

Excellent villa – good location for beaches, walks, etc. Neighbours were very friendly.
Mr Bone – June 2013

Very pleasant stay in this comfortable villa in a lovely location with a delightful pool. It is our first trip to Southern Corsica and we can recommend the short walks in the mountains. The two-and-a-half hour walk from the Auberge at the Col de Bavella is a nice stroll through pine forest with great views on the way back. We took the route from Solenzara to get to the Col which was stunning. The waterfall walk is also lovely near Ospedale.
Mrs Oldham – June 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.
