A rare opportunity to stay in one of the age-old houses in the citadel with spectacular views, Studio Castille offers a modern and comfortable interior.

Compact yet extremely well equipped, Studio Castille is decorated in a fresh, modern style which makes the most of the magnificent views of the Mediterranean. A real home from home, this studio apartment has been appointed with modern and personal touches, including a collection of the owner’s favourite books and CDs, as well as plenty of guide books and maps to help you explore the local area.

French windows lead from the living area to the full-width balcony with wooden patio table and chairs; imagine enjoying fresh croissants for breakfast, while drinking in the uninterrupted views across Calvi bay to the mountains of la Balagne. Whilst air-conditioning is normally top of a tick list for holidaymakers, rest assured that this studio's convenient location in the heart of citadel benefits from thick stone walls and refreshing sea breezes so the need for air-conditioning is negligible. With a convenient location in the heart of the citadel, Studio Castille remains a firm favourite with returning guests, and as properties for two are very popular, this gem tends to sell out early.

Due to its citadel location, this property is accessed via a number of stairs, and the pathways through the citadel are uneven and also contain stairs.

About the Local Area


The Citadel itself is a magnificent backdrop for the red-tiled town below and within the walls you’ll find cobbled passages tightly packed with houses, dominated by the Cathédrale Saint Jean-Baptiste, which stands at the highest point of the Citadel.

The best way to see the rest of the Citadel is to simply follow the ramparts, which offer some magnificent views across the bay to the mountains of the Balagne.


Calvi's main beach
Calvi's beach is a huge sweeping crescent of white sand fringed by woods of planted maritime pines and it has something for everyone: it is patrolled by lifeguards in the summer and has a gentle shelving gradient that is perfect for all ages, including toddlers. It boasts a fine array of restaurants and cafés nearby - some of which serve directly onto the beach whilst you bask on your sunlounger; not to mention a diverse range of water sports activities for the more energetic.

Calvi beach is a good 30 minute walk from the Citadel. If you have a hire car during your stay, remember that the Citadel has 2 FREE car parks, so you will not have a problem parking in the Citadel, and you can drive to the beach where there is also FREE parking. The further along the beach you go, the more stunning it is!

Pointe de la Revellata
At this headland, just three kilometres west of Calvi Citadel, there is a sandy beach and tiny coves which can only be reached on foot or bike. A great, more secluded alternative to the town beach that gives an idea of the wilder coastline to be explored on the west coast of Corsica.

Ste Restitude
A picturesque and secluded beach that can be reached by train or by a two hour walk along the coast. Backed by macchia and pine trees, swimming conditions are perfect at Ste Restitude with soft sand and clear water. There is a restaurant serving refreshments but little else.


Calvi on the Rocks
This festival held in  July is a youthful music and arts festival with a mix of electronic music and digital art and includes a concert each night in the citadel.

Rencontres Polyphoniques de Calvi
Polyphonic singing is at the heart of Corsican culture and musicians from around the world perform in the citadel at this event.

Fiera di San Petru
Held in Lumio in mid July, this is a village festival with exhibitions celebrating stone-masonry and stone-related crafts made in the village from iron ore mined on Cap Corse.

Foire de l'Alivu in Montegrosso
Around 10,000 visitors honour the olive in July, in a delightful olive grove setting with exhibitions demonstrating olive production over the years and artisans selling refreshments and local produce. 

Foire de l'Amandier in Aregno
Held in the Balagne village of Aregno every August, the Foire de l’Amandier includes tastings, painting exhibitions, events for children and cooking contests all based around the almond and its trees.



Calvi has so much to see and do, there is something to suit everyone!

Calvi Citadel
If you don’t mind the climb to the top through the cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, then a visit to the Citadel is a must during your holiday. From here, the views across the bay to the mountains are magnificent.

Music Lovers
For energetic music lovers, walk up to Notre Dame de la Serra to listen to the violinist playing in the chapel. At 216m above Calvi, you will also be rewarded with fabulous views across the bay below and don’t forget to take water, a hat and sun cream.

Each week held at the Cathédrale Saint Jean-Baptiste, which stands at the highest point of the Citadel you can experience Corsican Polyphonic singing with the concerts of “Chansons polyphoniques”.

Water sports, Jet-ski & Boat Rental
There are a number of places in Calvi where you are able to participate in ‘on the water’ activities. Waterskiing, motorboats of all sizes, parascending and jet ski hire to name but a few, plus English speaking instructors are available for windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing.  All of these activities are bookable in advance through local companies.

Train Journeys
Taking a train journey is a delightful and different way to experience the varied and wonderful landscapes of Corsica.

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

Balagne villages

Take a coach trip for half a day around the old Balagne villages, or take a full day to travel a little further afield. Perched high above the sea, the fortress villages of the Haute-Balagne offer dramatic mountains landscapes and spectacular views over the coastline. Stop en route to sample the local produce or visit one of the workshops along the craft trail "Strada di l'Artigiani".

Bonifatu forest

Explore the Bonifatu forest, a spectacular pine forest with hidden rock pools and stunning views over Calvi bay with walks of varying difficulties.
