With a direct access from the terrace to the water it feels like a private spot. At the same time the wonderful sandy beach of Sant Ambroggio is just 50 meters away. Convenient as well the small port in walking distance with boulangerie, charcuterie, restaurant and a few other shops. A great starting point as well to discover the surrouding beaches, the beautiful village of Calvi or even Corte. It was the perfect holiday. We will be back! A big Thank You to Chantal and Thierry for offering this really splendid property in such an amazing location. Un grand Merci!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is nicely furnished and well equipped, with everything you need in the kitchen. There is a shower, a bath with a shower over and three toilets. Ouside there are two terraces, one shady and one sunny, both with tables and chairs. There is a large, stone-built barbecue on the shady terrace, surrounded by rosemary bushes and flowering shrubs. M & Mme Canava are very friendly and helpful, and our deposit was returned on the day we left. Calvi is charming, a beautiful harbour, a historic citadel, interesting little steets, lots of super restaurants and bars, and lovely beaches. Highly recommended, we plan to return.
