NEW FOR 2022


Five-bedroom Villa Sottu is light, bright and generously proportioned, with giant picture windows and plenty of user-friendly living space opening out onto an enticing pool terrace with spectacular views towards Calvi.

Thoughtful design, an open-plan layout and comfortable furnishings ensure a relaxing stay and the easy flow between inside and out only adds to the appeal. Four of the five bedrooms are en-suite; two doubles on the ground floor lead onto the expansive pool terrace and a further three bedrooms on the lower level enjoy access to a second terrace complete with table football, darts and a swing seat - always popular with younger guests.

It’s unusual to find such a luxurious property within walking distance of Calvi’s renowned quay-side restaurants, impressive Citadel and popular crescent-shaped beach but a 20-minute stroll, or 5-minute drive, puts you at the heart of the action. Neighbouring Villa Sopra enjoys the same privileged position and beautiful views across the bay; particularly magical at dusk, as the sun drops behind the rosy-gold peaks of the Balagne and the lights of Calvi announce that it’s time for a glass of something chilled and refreshing.

Villa Sottu is ideal for a larger group or two families travelling together and can be rented individually or with Villa Sopra to create the ultimate Corsican house party. However you choose to enjoy this lovely spot, you couldn’t be better placed to experience the beauty, history, culture and gourmet delights of the region.

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.

With fishermen mending their nets by the harbour, Calvi’s maritime heritage remains intact. However, the town has gained a new lease of life in the cafés and bars along Quai Landry, linking the marina and the port, with stretches of beach beyond.

Inland, the unspoilt beauty of The Balagne tells a different story of mountain wildernesses and the island's unspoilt and uniquely fragrant maquis. Follow the Route des Artisans through terracotta-tiled hilltop villages, overlooking a landscape of forests and mountains, and you’ll also find that an excellent glass of local wine is never far away.

Choose a holiday in Calvi & The Balagne and one of our handpicked luxury villas or apartments will put you in the heart of this diversely beautiful destination.
