A lovely character property in a charming village.

4 of 5
The property was as described roomy, comfortable and well equipped. The house is in s great location and the villages has a Panetta and a shop and bar. From the terraces of the house there are amazing views of the mountains and down to the sea. A lovely property that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Contemporary air conditioned apartment, with spectacular views and a back drop of mountains.

5 of 5
This was our first visit to Corsica and as the early morning ferry sailed into Bastia the port side properties of differing colours were lit by the morning sunshine. We followed the twisting coastal road from Bastia to Calvi, passing beautiful bays with blue water and sandy beaches, the journey took about 1.5 hours. The one bed spacious apartment is in a small private complex, overlooking lush tropical gardens full of of colourful bushes and cacti. The terrace is well furnished and was our favourite place to drink our first coffee of the day whilst enjoying the ever changing view of Calvi Bay and the Mariner. The apartment is well furnished and maintained and fully equipped with high-end kitchen ware and electrical goods including Wi-Fi. All amenities were within walking distance including a patisserie that offered fresh cakes and bread from 8am until 8pm. Our favourite place to eat was at the Nautic restaurant situated in the Mariner, where succulent Moules were served in a rich garlic cream sauce . We visited many coves all good for snorkelling and sunbathing but our favourite was at Algajola, 15 minutes from Calvi, with easy parking and a choice of a dozen restaurants, offering ice creams, coffee, drinks and a variety of menus and plat du jour. Our host Imogen provided excellent customer service and support pre our arrival and a bottle of wine, confiture and croissants to welcome us. Thank you Imogen for providing a beautiful apartment and making us so welcome, we will not hesitate to recommend, your apartment, Calvi and Corsica to our friends.
