Scattered on the hillsides of Precojo village within generous open grounds, Villa Pierre Paul is ideal for the larger family or a group of friends. If the interior’s stylish furnishings and state-of-the-art technology are quietly urbane, the surrounding space and facilities root this villa firmly in the country – from the grazing paddock, to the compact sports pitch (kitted out with football nets) and play area (beloved by children, though unsupervised). Making the best of the outdoors is in fact de rigueur here: the outside bar area and summer kitchen make dining al fresco an uncomplicated pleasure; hours are whiled away by the infinity pool and on the covered veranda.

The ample gardens also house a small open-plan cottage suitable for friends or older children, offering that extra degree of independence.

Customer feedback

We could not rate this property and the Simpson experience more highly. It was the perfect location for us and our 2-year-old twin boys who love adventure. Incredibly safe and a wonderful setting.
Justine Curtis – June 2019

There were three generations of us – from 6 weeks to 64 – and everybody had a wonderful time. The villa and its facilities were outstanding. The facilities for children and infants were excellent. The toys and books for young children were so good that our 3-year-old didn't even unpack his own toys. The adults were all comfortable and happy. Roberto was lovely.
Farrell/Barker families – June 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Pierre Paul. The gardens are expansive and it was great to have such a large pool. We were a party of two adults, six teenagers and there was plenty of space for us all to spread out and feel relaxed. The villa is very well located for beautiful beaches.
Mrs F Anderson – August 2018

Thank you, Eric, Natalie and Roberto from Simpson Travel, for making everything go so well at Villa Pierre Paul. A wonderful family villa with all you need for every age (our youngest being 2-years-old!). The kitchen and pool are a delight. Beach wise for the family Rondinara was the best – loads of space and parking plus a very decent café. For the grown-ups, Palombaggia hits the spot, but book your sun lounger prior to arrival! Then enjoy a very lazy lunch.
Graeme, Jess, Charlie and Emma – June 2018

I cannot recommend Simpson Travel enough! It was our first holiday as a family of five – with a new-born. Corsica is the IDEAL destination for families. Villa Pierre Paul with its gated pool was safe and luxurious at the same time. The separate suite was a perfect retreat for our nanny. Children, parents and nanny were all THRILLED and we want to come back next year. Bravo Simpson Travel – you have gained a loyal family of fans and we will be back for many more happy holidays in the future.
Mrs Flavard-Jones – May 2018

Thank you, Eric and Natalie! We have had an amazing holiday here at Villa Pierre Paul. What a beautiful villa with everything we could ever need! It is our first family holiday with Eva (age 4) and Charlie (age 1) and the grandparents. We couldn’t have asked for more. Brilliant trips to the local beaches and town. Lots of exploring the villa grounds and getting to know the wildlife and we love Oregan the horse – he’s had lots of carrots! We have loved the swings and spent hours in the pool and Charlie will miss the trips on the trike – it’s even been around the cobbled streets of Bonifacio Old Town! We have loved every minute and can’t wait to return.
Louise, Symon, Eva, Charles, Linda and Malcolm – May 2018

We had an amazing holiday at Villa Pierre Paul. What a beautiful villa with everything we could ever need and more – the owners had thought of everything. Our first family holiday with our children aged 4 and 1 (and the grandparents!). We couldn’t have asked for more – brilliant trips to the local beaches and towns, lots of exploring the villa grounds and getting to know gorgeous Oregon, the horse. We loved the swings and spent hours in the pool. We loved every minute and can’t wait to return.
Louise Kowalew – May 2018

Amazing scenery, fantastic climbs, both on foot and in the car. Lovely villages, especially Bonifacio and Sartène. Beautiful beaches and great sea. Villa Pierre Paul has everything we needed and is a really well thought out properly – lovely views/location. All in all a very special week in Corsica thanks to the owner Eric and to Kimberly of Simpson Travel.
Darrell & Richard – September 2017 

Wonderful villa, beautiful location, everything here – we have two teenage girls but would love to have found this when they were younger – so safe. Corsica is a beautiful island. Eric and Natalie have thought of everything and Simpson Travel were fantastic – booking a lovely hotel for a special birthday meal – it was perfect. Thank you so very much.
The Mason Family – July 2017

Another fantastic, trouble-free, relaxing holiday in a lovely villa in a fantastic location! Thank you!
Mr Roslyn – July 2017

Villa Pierre Paul is perfect for (extended) families. The photos on the website don't quite do it justice, but the villa and its surrounds are huge. You could eat at a different dining table every day for a week. The outside kitchen is brilliant – the built-in barbecue got plenty of use. Only slight shame was we never got round to using the pizza oven! Pool was a perfect temperature and safely gated. And there's so much else for kids to do outside at the villa – although they get easily distracted by Origan the friendly horse. Great service once again from Simpson Travel – would love to stay for two weeks next time.
Mr Clyde – June 2016

Fantastic – would definitely use Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Taylor – May 2016



Our first trip to Corsica and we are smitten. The villa, facilities, location were all superb and as ever Simpson Travel did a great job. We will be exploring more of Corsica with Simpson in the future. Thanks to all concerned in making this a great trip.
Mrs Bishop-Clark – September 2015

We would like to thank Simpson Travel for providing a wonderful holiday. Having previously travelled to Northern Corsica, we were keen to explore the south of the island for our holiday this year and were certainly not disappointed. Villa Pierre Paul was one of the best villas we have ever stayed in and offered complete rest, relaxation, stunning décor, and was extremely well equipped throughout. The owners were a delight and made us feel very welcome. The location of the villa was superb – accessible for exploring yet in a private location within a very small village. We have travelled with Simpson Travel on several occasions now, and are never disappointed as they take the stress out of organising the booking of a holiday and all the staff are always extremely helpful. We have recommended the company to several people and sincerely hope for many more successful years with the company – no doubt we will be using you again in the future. Thank you.
Mrs Chapman – September 2014

This is our 6th or 7th time on Corsica as we love it so much. We have been to this villa five times – as always, it is wonderful here. The villa is clean, tidy and well equipped and the pool is perfect. The grounds are also lovely.
Mr Colegrave – August 2014

Thank you for a wonderful week in your beautiful villa. We had wall-to-wall sunshine and made constant use of the pool.
Mr Coles – August 2014

Our first time to Corsica and we will definitely be back again! Absolutely beautiful! We had a lovely time at the villa. It was certainly one the best equipped villas we have ever stayed at.
Mrs Ferguson – August 2014

What an amazing week at this beautiful villa. The villa and all its grounds were immaculate and we enjoyed using all the outdoor games with four teenagers. All the beaches were lovely and each member of our family had their own preference.
Mrs Bowers – July 2014

What a wonderful villa. Not sure we managed to eat at every available table but we did our best! So well equipped and a beautiful garden. A gorgeous time to visit Corsica – the flowers were beautiful, a lovely temperature and not too crowded.
The Woolston Family – May 2014

Our second trip with Simpson Travel and a great one again. Perfect service. Villa Pierre Paul was fabulous. Superb grounds including the resident horse Oregan (our two daughters loved this) and football goals (which the boys loved). Plus the outdoor facilities of a barbecue, bar and kitchen area were a bonus. A great location for the access of great beaches. It was a short drive from Porto Vecchio – the beautiful town and port which hosts some amazing restaurants. Also a short drive from the supermarket which has an excellent meat counter, ideal for the barbecue. A great holiday for the whole family (aged 2-66 years)!
Mrs Rowe – August 2013

We had a very relaxing stay – our fourth visit to Corsica but this has been the best villa with everything beautifully equipped. The best beach was still Pinarello – worth a 20-minute car journey. This was possibly our last family holiday – two daughters off to university in October – so thank you for providing such a lovely, relaxing place to stay.
The Sykes Family – 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.
