View / Book 

Villa Ardoli is a delightful two bedroom villa with private pool, situated in the seaside lovely village of Algajola.

Set in an elevated position overlooking a private pool, Villa Ardoli is ideally situated within a couple of minutes walk from the sandy beach and restaurants of Algajola. Generally quieter in low season, the village shakes off its sleepy feel towards the summer months when its restaurants and cafés open late giving the village a general buzz of activity.

Simply furnished and with ample living space, Villa Ardoli is perfect for couples or small families alike. The villa is set in a large enclosed garden with trees and shrubs providing sun and shade throughout the day – a perfect place to relax and soak up the sun by the pool. For those who wish to discover the area, the train station is just a stone’s throw away and the journey to either Calvi or L’Ile Rousse along the coast will be an unforgettable experience. The coastal train track passes near the villa and from the garden and terrace you will occasionally hear the rattling “U Trinighellu” train as it winds its way along the coast.

A good value property in the heart of a popular village, this is the ideal base for those wishing to explore la Balagne region.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

As you follow the coastal road towards Calvi, you reach the charming little village of Algajola. With a long stretch of beach and a quaint village square, it is the ideal place to relax, unwind and dodge the crowds. The village is a real treasure, remaining calm and tranquil even in the height of the summer and the atmospheric Citadel enhances its Corsican charm with tales of marauding pirates from medieval times.

BEACHES

Aregno
This beach is a kilometre-long curve of coarse sand beneath a picturesque Genoese citadel. During the months of July & August, the beach is extremely busy, but out of high season, you can have this beach pretty much all to yourself! There is a good selection of cafés, restaurants and water sports.

FESTIVALS

Since 1997, Aregno has played host to Corsicas only Almond festival. Held at the beginning of August, nut farmers and their families travel from all over the island to take part in the cooking competitions.

Festivoce in Pigna
Held early August, this festival provides a forum for long nights of traditional a cappella singing in the outdoor amphitheatre.

Calvi Jazz Festival
Held in late June, this festival consists of a week of concerts in and around the citadel. Those in the music tent on the port or in the cathedral in the citadel are usually very popular and well known and require you to book a ticket. Jamming sessions in the harbour front bars in the evenings add to the ambiance.

Festiventu
At the end of October, on Calvi beach, this festival celebrates everything connected with wind. Hundreds of kites and microlight aircraft displays on the beach coupled with concerts every evening has resulted in this festival attractive thousands of visitors every year.

Visit Calvi Town & The Citadel
Calvi Towns social life focuses on the many restaurants and cafés of the quai landry which is a large seafront walkway that links the marina and the port effortlessly. To get the best possible feel of the town, this is the place to be! A walk up through the narrow passageways off quai landry will take you to rue Clemenceau where you will find an array of restaurants and souvenir shops plenty. Further walking will present the Ste-Marie-Majeure, built in 1774.

Calvi – L’lle Rousse by train
This regular service allows you to explore the coastline to the east of Calvi, stopping at all of the beaches en route, which means you can jump on in Algajola and travel in either direction! The line built in the 1880’s and 1890’s hugging the coast is undoubtedly one of the worlds most scenic railways. The complete journey takes approx 50 minutes, and depending on the time of year travelling, there are between 5 and 10 return journeys a day.
