Villa Doniche is one of four charming villas on the hillside adjacent to the ancient village of Olmeto: tranquil and picturesque with its terracotta rooftops, slopes cascading down to the unspoilt beaches of the Valinco Gulf – the area is a walker's paradise.

Each property benefits from its own private swimming pool cleverly designed to provide privacy and the most spectacular of views, whether barbecuing al fresco or enjoying the peacefulness of the terraces. The open-plan layout and bright décor combine to create a light and airy feel, while the furnishings are a stylish but unfussy blend of contemporary and traditional – from rattan and wicker to the chunky wood dining table. Whether in the kitchen or the sitting room, Doniche, Vigna Maggiore, A Murta and Villa l'Alta all come fully equipped and the local beaches, shops and restaurants are just a short drive away.

Customer feedback

A very disappointing and expensive holiday in comparison to our ( and my sister in laws) previous Simpson holidays, which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Even the fridge didn't have a handle!!! Not the standard one would expect from a Simpson Villa.
Mr Cardwell – August 2017

A great return visit - as good as last year! Great paths and views locally, and mountains very accessible. 
Helen & Tony – September 2016

Villa Doniche has been lovely place to stay. The views are magical and the pool is one of the nicest we have had. Corsica is beautiful, so many trees and very friendly people! We hope we will come back!
The Meynells – July 2016

We have enjoyed a very restful week in this glorious location, weather has been mainly sunny and warm - pool nice and fresh. Steven has been very helpful, thank you Simpson Travel.
Clive & Jane – June 2016

A wonderful villa with everything we needed.
Mr Alderman – July 2015

 

A lovely relaxing holiday!!
Mrs Church – July 2015

Villa Doniche is a beautiful villa in a beautiful location - a great place to explore Corsica from or just to relax in by the pool and admire the views.
Mr Ormond – July 2014

Just magnificent! Beautiful villa, beautiful views, beautiful Corsica. Thank you to Karim and his wife and to Joelle (Simpson Travel) for being so helpful.
Mr & Mrs Marsland – June 2012

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.
