We had apartment 15, an upstairs apartment, booked privately to save a few pounds, it was also larger than the ones allocation to tour companies, I believe.. It was nice & cool on a very hot day on arrival & reminded us of a rural French cottage. Clean, quite large & well equipped, including a Dishwasher machine,but bit strange they... More

We went in August 2013 and the weather was perfect. This accommodation is not a hotel- it is small self catering apartments. There are lovely, well kept gardens and a nice pool with sunbeds. It is walking distance from shops, harbour and beach. We did feel it was quite over priced as it's literally accommodation. The owners only cleaned and... More

We rented a studio apartment through Corsican Places for a week at end of September. The studio eat self was well equipped (no plans for a lot of self catering), and comfortable. On the downside although the bed was comfortable, only 1 thin pillow was provided per person so we had to improvise with spare blanket to get sufficient neck/head... More

This was our first self catering holiday in Corsica, having previously stayed in hotels throughout the island. We thought A Merula was nice enough - beautiful gardens, well located for Calvi centre, good welcome pack of food & drink, decent size of apartment (we had a one bedroom apartment), pretty decor, very peaceful, nice terrace, effective air con. However, one... More

We stayed for one week at the end of May in a Studio apartment. We were on the third floor, as requested, and the views from our balcony were stunning. We looked out over the beautiful and well tended gardens, the pool and snow capped mountains. Simply breath-taking. The owners run a very tight ship and this is reflected in... More

Been coming to Calvi on and off for 21 years and of those stayed 13 or it may even be 14 times here. Owned and managed by several generations of the same family who treat all the homes like their own... Hence studios and apartments have Corsican decor / antique touches... comfortable with most mod-cons (air-con, dishwasher, etc). No washing... More

Just back from two weeks in A Merula end July/beg August. Just as the reviews say, beautiful grounds, sweet apartments and good location. We had a one bedroom apartment, well equipped and with a 'French' country feel. Large bed which was super comfortable (two singles put together, but this doesn't bother me). Really quiet around the apartments and the pool.... More

Stayed at A Merula for 1 week and this is the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. Set in beautiful gardens which are immaculate. Very clean and everything in the apartment you could wish for. We arranged via Corsican Places and the Welcome Pack was much appreciated. Approx 15 mins to the centre of Calvi but it is... More

This was our first time to Corsica, and we were not disappointed. Calvi is a beautiful place, it has stunning scenery with the long beach with mountains in the background, the marina, and citadel, absolutely loved it! And Residence A Merula was the perfect place to stay to experience Calvi. Located approx 10 mins walk to the local shops and... More
