Le Sirocco is a real find, offering elegant, comfortable accommodation, a delightful landscaped garden and private pool just a short stroll from the centre of St Florent. This beautiful old harbour town at the foot of the Cap Corse peninsula has an atmosphere to rival St Tropez, with all the style and none of the pretence. Explore the shops and restaurants around the lively marina, wander through the narrow streets towards the Citadel and stop in one of the town squares to join the locals for some café culture. It is extremely rare to find a villa where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch port-side, marvel at a 12th-century Cathedral and then retreat for a cooling swim in the privacy of your own garden in under ten minutes.
Inside Le Sirocco, simple décor and classic furnishings create a restful atmosphere with contemporary splashes of colour giving the villa a bright and welcoming feel. The well laid out accommodation offers four bedrooms and is ideal for families or groups of friends travelling together.

We had a great time in a great place. Any questions or issues were dealt with quickly and effectively. I am very likely to use Simpson Travel in future holiday plans.
Nigel – August 2019
Using Simpson Travel has been a fantastic experience from start to finish. All of the interactions with the staff on booking, pre-departure and the wonderful rep, Jenny, exceeded all of our expectations and enhanced every aspect of our holiday. The pre-departure team went above and beyond to provide assistance with ensuring we had everything we needed from cots and high chairs to sourcing us a bottle steriliser and other equipment. Jenny did a shop for us to ensure we had plenty of food on arrival and was extremely thoughtful in her choices for us. She visited us on our first morning and brought with her a bag of toys for our children and a wealth of advice about the area. She booked us tables for dinner and provided any assistance we needed. She was extremely attentive and professional and really enhanced our stay. The house was newly renovated and absolutely beautiful, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean, spacious and a great space for the children. The pool area was very nice and the gardens full of interesting birds, lizards and grasshoppers – an absolute delight for our toddler. The location could not be any better and the area of St Florent was fantastic, especially for foodies. I will recommend Simpson Travel to all of my friends and family and will be using them for all future holidays.
Mrs Carr – June 2019
We had a lovely week. Our first trip with Simpson and thoroughly impressed – nothing was too much trouble – even a cake on my birthday! Children loved the pool.
The Budd family – May 2019
We had a lovely relaxing time at Le Sirocco. The villa is very comfortable and very well equipped. We enjoyed walking locally and further afield with the help of Jenny and our kind owners. Corsica has wonderful paths to follow with fabulous scenery. We will be back!
The Burmos Family – October 2017
A lovely mother and daughter week. We hardly moved from the pool! Thanks to Jean-Pierre and Jonny for making us feel so welcome (and for the loan of adaptors – life saver!). We will be back.
Roschind & Shauna – August 2017
We have had a lovely relaxing holiday at Le Sirocco. We have eaten out every evening and thoroughly enjoyed every meal. We all loved the taxi boat to Saleccia beach. The water is turquoise! Jet-skiing was great fun too. A huge thank you to Jenny for being so helpful and Jean-Pierre for the very tasty tomatoes from his garden.
The Allen Family – August 2017
Six of us enjoyed our stay at Le Sirocco using the pool a lot during the perfect weather. A favourite trip was going to Saleccia beach on a speed boat. We went out to eat every evening particularly enjoying our excellent anniversary meal.
The Evans & Ahmed Families – July 2017
We spent a very relaxing week in St Florent. This is our first visit to Corsica and we loved the mix of sea, mountains, history, rural scenes, nooks and crannies. The villa was light and spacious and we enjoyed spreading out! Loved the pool and wandering into the town. Many thanks to Jean-Pierre and Jenny from Simpson Travel.
Jake, Phillipe, Rosie & Simon – June 2017
Corsica never disappoints and it was lovely to come back to Le Sirocco and enjoy all the changes that have been made since our last visit. We enjoy exploring the local area, sauntering around the villages and walking the many trails that are now being made accessible.
The Raikes Family – May 2017
Out first experience of Simpson Travel and very impressed with pre-sales information, ease of use of website to book and of course, the actual property and representative we had in Corsica. Many thanks.
Mr Gabe-Jones – July 2016
Can't fault anything about our holiday, from Simpson Travel, to the villa, to St Florent, to the rep. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who likes spectacular scenery to visit the area.
Mrs Davis – June 2016
Yet another great Simpson Travel holiday. Lovely venue, very helpful property owner, and fantastic Simpson staff. We've really loved travelling to both Corsica (several times) and Paxos with Simpson Travel.
Mr Carter – July 2015
We have just returned from a very hot week in Corsica, everything ran smoothly and the villa was lovely, peacefully situated but just a 10-minute walk to restaurants and shops. An ideal break to recharge our batteries. Many thanks.
Mrs Jenkinson – June 2015
We have enjoyed our two weeks in Corsica and really don't want to leave! Many thanks to Martine for all her help.The weather has been sunny and warm and we have spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool.
Mrs Gordon – September 2014
Our holiday was dealt with professionally from beginning to end, nothing was to much trouble for Simpson Travel staff either at home or at our holiday location. Our car hire experience in Corsica was excellent, the speed with which we were dealt with, the quality of vehicle and the full insurance cover all contributed.
Mr Jobson – September 2014
We've had a lovely week, enjoying the pool, beaches, mountains, restaurants and winding roads. Thanks for all the small extra touches and careful thought that make this such a nice villa to enjoy for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Hine – August 2014
We had a fantastic week and the villa feels like home. The weather was perfect. A really enjoyable and peaceful stay. We love the paintings in the villa and everything we could need was available to us. Thank you for sharing the villa with us – we would love to stay again.
The Matravers Family – September 2013
A great first visit to Corsica. The villa was excellent for us, we enjoyed relaxing around the pool. Cap Corse was spectacular! We also ventured to Ponte Leccia for canyoning which I would recommend – it certainly tested us to our limits! In all, a great holiday. St Florent and its nearby beaches have been a great discovery for us. Thank you for the use of your villa.
Mrs Essery – August 2013
A lovely first visit to Corsica and Le Sirocco in St. Florent. It has proved an excellent base for a relaxing stay. A walk up to the top of the Citadel recommended and overall the trip is well worth the one-and-a-half hour drive. Plage de Seleccia is wonderful – white sand and clear blue sea. Would have gone again if we had more time!
Mrs Bassett – August 2013
What a wonderful stay in this lovely house in beautiful St Florent. We have loved the local restaurants, all do a 'menu les enfants'. We love Corsica and will be back.
Mrs Bryant – August 2013
This is our sixth visit to stunning Corsica with all its charms – sea, sun and mountains. An interesting trip is around the Tour of the Strada di L'Artigiani (Artisan road) between Calvi and lle Rousse. We have enjoyed two weeks of glorious sunshine in this pleasant villa.
Mr Lewis – June 2013
We enjoyed a delightful welcome from Jean Pierre and his wife. We had some lovely sunny days out. The house is a real treasure and the local town, a short walk away, is a joy to behold.
Mrs Brown – May 2013
We enjoyed a warm, friendly welcome from Jean-Pierre and Maxine and have thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful place. We will be back.
Bates – May 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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
Against a backdrop of misty mountains, St Florent sits at the neck of the Cap Corse Peninsula overlooking its azure gulf. A rugged beauty and colourful history set this region apart and exploring the Désert des Agriates, flower-decked and slate-roofed Nonza or the artists’ haunt of Erbalunga, can be as much part of your holiday as enjoying the watersports or wine tasting in Patrimonio. More French than the harbours of the south, St Florent nonetheless retains much of its Genoese and Tuscan heritage.
To complete the picture, we have a collection of handpicked luxury villas in St Florent and Cap Corse to help you make the most of your stay.
