Customer feedback

U Scudu is an amazing villa in a stunning location. The view is incredible and we spent so much time just looking out to sea. The villa is very well equipped and the beds were extremely comfortable. The heated pool was a bonus, especially in May.
Mrs Maguire – May 2018

U Scudu was all we could have hoped for in a stunning setting and it had all the amenities we could possibly want. It’s in a very peaceful and unspoilt location and the views are fantastic. We had lots to do on the doorstep, but decided the villa was so lovely that we would relax a whole lot more! The beach is a 10-minute walk away and is lovely, clean and safe. The locals are friendly. This was our first visit to Corsica and Simpson Travel made the experience easy and a pleasure. With advice on the right villa, activities and the excellent in-country representative, James – this was an excellent introduction to Corsica and we will definitely return – and with Simpson Travel!
The Connell Family – May 2018

We were so happy to return a year later to U Scudu. As last year, we loved our time here and even brought our friends! Our friends were amazed by the stunning views, peaceful calming landscape and the incredible villa! This trip was their first out of the U.S. and they couldn’t believe it. We are sad to leave U Scudu but hope to be back very soon!
Meredith & Karl – October 2017

We came here in search of peace, privacy and family time and found the most stunning villa anyone could imagine. U Scudu is like a boat – the best in the marina – perfect in every way. Secluded and private but close to the beach. We loved the deck, the pool, every perfect detail created comfort and serenity, truly special.
Robin, Lucy & Bart – August 2017

What a lovely villa and charming location! We had a wonderful week enjoying the deck, the pool and of course…that view! Beautiful weather every day, we only left the villa to spend an afternoon on the beach. As city dwellers, it was extraordinary to see that many shooting stars. Zena at Simpson Travel was so helpful – she really made a difference – and Dominique was very friendly and helpful. A magical place with superb hosts.
The Josh Family – July 2017

We have had a wonderful week here in Campomoro. The view from the villa is breathtaking and I am going to miss seeing it every day.
Hilary, David & Frances – June 2017

This is our second time visiting Corsica and we have fallen even more in love with it. You have found a magical place so enjoy!
The Lole Family – June 2017

We have never been to Corsica before so we were not sure what to expect – what a beautiful little village Campomoro is and a truly amazing villa! We were stunned by the view every time we saw it! And for the first time ever our 11-month-old baby girl slept through the night – 4 nights! We intended to come for just a week but we ended up staying another week as we loved it so much – beautiful memories of our 2-year-old building sandcastles and our 11-month-old enjoying her first paddle in the sea! Thank you, Dominique and Simpson Travel, for making our stay so welcoming and well cared for.
Chris, Charlotte, Isabelle & Emma – May 2017

We had an amazing, relaxing week at U Scudu. You have designed the perfect villa – amazing views, comfortable spaces and all the comforts of home. We could have stayed here all summer. We will be back to enjoy everything again!
Meredith & Karl – October 2016

A perfect haven indeed – so perfect we have felt hardly any need to leave it. Such a wonderful villa with a perfect situation, ideal for the rest and relaxation we needed.
Julia & David – September 2016

Many thanks to Dominique – you have created a perfect haven. We have had a perfect week of relaxation. We can’t add any further praise to what has already been written – because it’s all true.
Claudia & Stuart September 2016

Our second visit to Corsica but our first to U Scudu and it certainly exceeded all our expectations. A wonderful house in a wonderful place made a truly wonderful holiday for us all.
Simon, Geraldine, Roxy & Robbie – August 2016

What a fabulous place. Thank you so much for creating such a perfect holiday with this beautiful villa. We loved all the things to do and places to visit, hidden beaches, restaurants and simply lazing by the pool. Thank you!
Nigel, Abigail & Molly – August 2016

Thank you so much for providing us with this wonderful place. We could not have expected a more perfect holiday in such a great area. The house is so beautiful and situated in the perfect place for us all to enjoy the wonderful activities! Watersports, the sea, sunbathing and the fabulous food! Hopefully we can come back to visit again!
Shawn, Julia, Bethany, Ellie, Michael & Alice – July 2016

A fabulous villa. We agree with everything written on previous pages! We’d love to come back some day – maybe when the weather is cooler and we’re feeling a bit more active than we have been this week – when lazing around by the pool was just what we needed!
Ross & Sally – July 2016

 

Thank you for introducing us to this wonderful place. We could not have expected a more perfect holiday in such a great area. The house is so beautiful and situated in the perfect place for us all to enjoy the wonderful activities! Best wishes to you and hopefully we can come back to visit again. 
Mr O'Callaghan – July 2016

A wonderful spot for a relaxing week. Stunning views from the hilltop and a good base for exploring. Thank you for a warm welcome!
Georgie & David – May 2016

We wanted somewhere special to celebrate my 50th birthday and we certainly got it. U Scudu in Corsica was just wonderful, fantastic location, friendly locals and scenery that will live on in our memories for a long time to come. Thank you to Simpson Travel for finding such a beautiful place.
Mr Chappell – May 2016

Thank you – we had a very enjoyable holiday at U Scudu – it's a stunning villa with beautiful views. Both reps were excellent and a credit to Simpson Travel – please thank David in particular for his help on our arrival. We also enjoyed meeting the owner of the villa who came over to meet us a couple of times – we liked the fact he was interested in meeting and talking to us. We were happy with the flight and appreciated it being British Airways – very easy and comfortable. Best wishes and thanks for a memorable holiday.
Mrs Cohen-Setton – September 2015

What a wonderful villa in the most charming of places – Campomoro is a jewel in the Mediterranean. So full of character; the locals are warm and inviting, and always look pleased to see you. We enjoyed the walks and the local restaurants, and the fact that you can park the car on the drive for a week. The spectacular views are unbeatable! Well done Simpson Travel – our fourth holiday with you and you don't disappoint.
Mrs Reid – August 2013

Beautiful villa – thank you. Great facilities and easy access to the surrounding area. The views are spectacular particularly during the amazing thunderstorm the other night which lit up the bay!
Mr Laing – August 2013

We came in search of rest and relaxation and boy, did we find it! U Scudu has felt like a home away from home, but with a view to remember. We have had the most wonderful holiday, and the boys will remember this trip for a long time to come. I cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough. First class.
The Burrows Family – July 2013

We've had an amazing stay at U Scudu! We loved everything about Corsica and can't wait to return. It's a shame we have to go back to London!
Mr Shih – June 2013

A superb villa with the most spectacular view and every detail thought of and provided. No need to eat out with such wonderful kitchen and barbecue. Easy to relax here and we certainly have done. A great treat and one I will never forget, thank you.
Mrs Lacey – June 2013

We had a lovely time – great villa, fantastic views, very friendly island – would come again.
Mr Workman – June 2013

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. Corsica was a revelation. Many thanks!
Mrs Nicholls – May 2013

Fabulous villa, why would you want to leave it? All the small details make the difference and especially the basket of 'goodies' as the shops were closed for the Bank holiday. The most relaxing place we have stayed for some time, great views and we loved the 'Fatboys', especially drinking champagne and watching the sunset. Many thanks and we really will be back again.
Mr Lockhart – May 2013

Excellent service from beginning to end, superb property. One of the most relaxing holidays we have had and we highly recommend Simpson Travel and will be using them again.
Mrs Saville Lockhart – 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.

The Gulf of Valinco makes for an inspiring holiday destination – and not just for the wonderful beaches. Propriano is one of the oldest island resorts, its marina lined with cafés and restaurants. South lies Campomoro and, to the north, in the folds of the Taravo Valley, stand the menhirs of Filitosa. Inland, you’ll find the mountain villages of the Alta Rocca, below the Bavella Peaks. And don’t miss the ancient capital of the south, Sartène, a favourite with wine buffs.
