Magnificent views from this third floor apartment.
Well equipped, this apartment is ideal for two couples who want to share this atmospheric experience in the heart of Calvi but whilst still retaining their privacy.
AMAZING location and view. Nice touches - drink on plane, excellent welcome pack - Lots of helpful information. We had a fantastic holiday and it is difficult to find ANY concerns at all! A wonderful experience! Thank you.
I wanted to introduce my partner to Corsica, and for me, if we were going to stay in Calvi, then it had to be in the Citadel, just because it is so atmospheric and romantic.
It's a bit of a hike up the many stairs to reach Apartment Carla, but it's worth it, as the views from the small, but perfectly formed balcony are perfect. There's a great sense of space in the property and if we didn't want the break to be as intimate then another couple could have easily shared comfortably with us as the two double bedrooms are similar in size and both have en suite bathrooms. Although I might have argued for the one with an even larger wardrobe and more drawers!
The Citadel location is ideal in that you can easily walk down to Calvi Town, which we did every morning to get fresh bread and a paper.
Again in the evening you are within such easy reach of the array of waterfront restaurants, but it's definitely worth staying closer to home a couple of evenings and sampling the food at the eateries within the Citadel walls.
Saying that, the kitchen at Apartment Carla is so well equipped, that if you wanted to stock up at the local markets, you could very easily prepare your own culinary creation, and also invite some new friends round, what with the large dining table.
Although the beach is minutes away, we also clambered around the rocks of the Citadel to find our own secluded spot by the sea.
Although you don't need a car (we got the train to Ille Rousse), I would advise it as it means you can see so much more of the North of Corsica. We had a great adventure exploring the Balagne Villages, Cap Corse and St Florent a feat that would have been a challenge, to say the least, using Corsica's public transport.
Overall, Apartment Carla, as part of the Citadel, just fulfilled the genuine Mediterranean escape that we were seeking.
Enjoy the subtle polyphonic harmonies drifting across from the cathedral - there are concerts held throughout the summer.
Calvi to l’Ile Rousse and beyond by train is a fantastic train journey along the beautiful coast to L’Ile Rousse - the perfect option for beach hopping or for exploring!
Take a boat or catamaran trip from Calvi harbour to nearby creeks and scenic bays, and discover the natural beauty of Corsica from the sea. There are trips from the Quai Landry to the Scandola National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Carla is a wonderful apartment, the views are stunning, especially when you wake up to the panorama over the bay below. The steps can be daunting but keep you fit and the view from the top is well worth it. Why not have brunch at Le Glacier on the port?
