Located in the village just 200m from shops and restaurants, and Algajola’s magnificent sandy beach, Louise is one of two contemporary villas designed by the owner and decorated to connect the sea and mountain surroundings with an airy yet homely feel.

With three very comfortable bedrooms and an open-plan kitchen and lounge area, the villa flows on one level along to the master bedroom with en-suite shower and bathtub and dressing area, which has direct access to the garden and views of the private pool. The two further double bedrooms each with their own en-suite shower rooms and dressing areas also look toward the trees and pool outside. 

The villa is air-conditioned throughout, and outside there is a private pool, dine-under pergola, barbecue, with two paddle boards available to use at the nearby beach. For days out, a trip on the coastal train to the towns of L'Ile Rousse or Calvi is highly recommended

The owners, Livia and Paul, inspired by their own travels, have ensured their villas reflect the beauty of the region, with sleek design and plenty of facilities.

Villa Louise is one of two villas located on the grounds, yet both maintaining complete privacy. Should Villa Louise be unavailable on the dates you are looking for, have a look at Villa Joseph which also sleeps up to six.

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

Foire de l’Amandier in Aregno
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.

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. 

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

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.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Le Chariot Restaurant
A must visit restaurant in Algajola. With such an amazing Mediterranean feel, and serving some of the best pizzas you will find on the island.

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.

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.
