Villa Davia

Premium Collection  |  Villa  

Calvi & la Balagne  |  Marine de Davia

5 Bedrooms - Sleeps up to 10

A superb contemporary villa positioned right on the sea in the private estate of Marine de Davia, here is a villa of the highest quality in one of Corsica’s most privileged locations.

Villa Davia has been entirely designed around holidays and outdoor living, and allows guests to drink in the fabulous views along the coast from the pool or the patio. On calm days it is possible to walk down to the rocks below the villa for a spot of snorkelling or for those with a head for heights you can even climb the steps to the roof terrace to sunbathe or take in the famous Corsican sunset over an apéritif. 

Inside, the villa has been furnished to a very high standard, with spacious en-suite and air-conditioned bedrooms, a smart kitchen equipped with the latest appliances, a huge open-plan lounge and dining room looking out to sea and there is even a bar for fixing your favourite tipple. The discreet and desirable setting makes this villa a great place to spend a holiday with family or friends, and although care must be taken with drops throughout the property and an unguarded access to the sea below the villa, it is sure to prove a popular choice and early booking is advisable.

Not recommended for children under eight years old.

Our customer's opinion 

"Apart from the obvious – stunning villa and location – we loved the heated pool  which allowed us to spend so much more time in the water."

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Marine de Davia is an exclusive private estate of luxury villas, just 4 kilometres from the town of L'Ile Rousse. With several fine sandy beaches, many houses are situated with direct access to the sea or 'pieds dans l'eau' as the French say, making this an ideal place for a quiet and relaxed villa holiday.

BEACHES

Davia
There are two small, usually uncrowded beaches on the Davia peninsula, which can be accessed by driving down through the Marine de Davia residential complex.

L’lle Rousse 
The town beach of L'Ile Rousse can be very busy - it has excellent facilities with cafés, restaurants and sunloungers lining the beach. If you're prepared to wander a little further, you can generally find a quiet spot. Another benefit of its size is that it is generally patrolled. It's a fine yellow sand beach and the water is a gorgeous clear blue. There are good opportunities here for water sports.

Bodri
Just west of L’Ile Rousse, Bodri Plage is an unspoilt beach, a walk through the maquis and over the railway line. The walk is worth it, as the beach has almost white sand and a turquoise sea.

Baie de Giunchetu
A short walk further west, around the rocky Punta di Genebre you will find this beach. It is slightly less picturesque, but larger.

FESTIVALS

Festimare in L'Ile Rousse

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Train Journeys
Taking a train journey is a delightful and different way to experience the varied and wonderful landscapes of Corsica. The closest stations are in L’lle Rousse and Algajola. And allow you to explore the coastline to the west of L’lle Rousse, 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 complete journey takes approx 50 minutes, and depending on the time of year travelling, there are between 5 and 10 return journeys a day.

Sant’Antonio
Explore the narrow streets of the oldest inhabited village in Corsica, labelled as “one of the most beautiful villages in France” and enjoy some of the most spectacular views over la Balagne.

Monticello
Monticello is the village where it is believed that Christopher Columbus' mysterious mother was born. The village has a couple of charming restaurants and sports facilities. Why not go pony trekking through the Balagne hills to discover the area’s true natural beauty.

Algajola
Algajola is a charming, sleepy little village with a long stretch of beach, half way along the coast between Calvi and L'Ile Rousse. An ideal place to relax, unwind and dodge the crowds, the town remains calm and tranquil even in the height of summer. Algajola is a real treasure, wandering around the streets and passageways shows a way of life that is essentially Corsican, the atmospheric citadel itself guarded the townsfolk from marauding pirates in medieval times.

Pigna
The pretty blue shuttered village of Pigna is also well worth a visit, home to some fabulous craft shops and the irresistible setting to the Festivoce, a festival of Corsican polyphony.

Strada di l’Artigiani
Follow the craft trail “Strada di l’Artigiani” through the villages of la Balagne and sample the local specialities en route.
