New Property Additions: Villa Paesanu & Apartment St Philippe

28 January 2014 - Corsican Places - Press Office

The UK’s Corsica specialist has added a further two new properties to its summer 2014 holiday collection. Corsican Places now includes 15 new accommodation options for the forthcoming season, bringing its total to more than 165 choices.

The tour operator presents Villa Paesanu, a brand new villa sleeping up to four, which is located in the south of the island close to some of Corsica’s most beautiful beaches, and Apartment St Philippe, providing perfect holiday accommodation for two in the heart of the historic town of Calvi, north west Corsica, with superb views of the bay and citadel and a short walk from the beach.

Villa Paesanu – Southern Corsica (www.corsica.co.uk/villa-paesanu) - is a two bedroom villa with a large private pool in a perfect location to explore the beaches of the South. Situated on the heights of Bocca del’Oro, a small residential hamlet south of Porto Vecchio, this property is ideal for both families and couples looking for the ultimate Corsican escape. The villa is beautifully presented with an open-plan layout, stylish interiors and modern facilities – and in keeping with local architecture, the structure also boasts a mix of exposed stone work, wooden beams and tiled flooring.

French doors lead from the living area to a large south-facing terrace with views of the sea in the distance, whilst the large swimming pool is set slightly away to the side of the property. Immersed in the natural landscape and bordered by huge granite rocks, the generously-sized pool with its ample terrace space will provide an idyllic spot for long lazy afternoons in the sunshine.

Corsica’s renowned beaches of Palombaggia and Santa Giulia are only a short hop away by car and are widely regarded as the most beautiful beaches on the island with their exquisite blend of fine white sand, shallow translucent waters and picture-postcard scenery.
Prices are from £694pp for a week’s holiday (based on 4 sharing) including car hire and return flights from Heathrow into Figari. Lead-in based on 18 May 2014 departure.


Apartment St Philippe – North West Corsica – (www.corsica.co.uk/apartment-st-philippe) - is a modern one bedroom apartment in a location ideally suited to explore the picturesque town of Calvi with its historic citadel, cobbled streets, lively harbourside and pine fringed silver sand beach. Situated in the heart of Calvi, everything is on the doorstep with the beach just a stone’s throw away.
The apartment has an open plan living area and well equipped kitchen, which coupled with the large floor to ceiling windows, ensures the whole apartment is light, airy and connects perfectly to the large, private outside terrace. The top floor position provides uninterrupted views of Calvi bay and the citadel. Prices are from £699pp for a week’s holiday (based on 2 sharing) including transfers and return flights Stansted or Manchester into Calvi. Lead-in based on 21 September 2014 departure.
