We decided to holiday in Corsica this year (17.7.2016) we chose Calvi from Corsican Places. We stayed at A Merula upon arrival you are welcomed by Cristoph who makes you all stand together while he reads out his rules and restrictions, then you may enter his house and collect your keys and leave you 50 euro cleaning deposit. Apart from... More

We stayed at A Merula for a week. Upon arrival the owner was very helpful and our room was immediately available. (Note, the reception is at Le Home, a short walk from A Merula.) We had a lovely apartment on the ground floor that overlooked the pool area and gardens. The decor was interesting, with plenty of quirky features like... More

We have just returned from a week in Calvi, Corsica. we stayed at the Residence A Merula. These were a collection of studio and one bedroom apartments set in beautiful gardens and just a short walk from Calvi town centre. We had a studio apartment which was well appointed and as we expected. The decor is a little unusual, as... More

A ten minute transfer from the airport, a hearty greeting from our friendly host , Cristoph and on to the allocated apartment. A walk through the most beautiful gardens led us to our traditionally styled block, very private, very quiet and very comfortable. Furnished in traditional French rustic style it was tempting to spend the holiday "doing nothing" except enjoy... More

We stayed in a studio apartment in A Merula which was perfect for us. The apartment was beautifully furnished in a rustic French style. Our balcony over looked the swimming pool and gardens with a view to the mountains. Simply stunning. We were able to get Wifi in our apartment (19) but some apartments can only get it by the...

The trip advisor picture is in fact not A Merula, which means The Blckbird, but the adjoining Le Home. Each are super, but we stayed at the more unique, A Merula. This is a selection of apartments set in absolutely beautiful gardens that are very well tended. Watch out for the sprinklers! Each apartment has its own merits, ours over... More

A Merula is a beautiful oasis situated between the airport and Calvi town. 10 minutes transfer. The gardens are stunning and well maintained as are the swimming pools. The apartments are basic but very clean and air conditioned. The downside was that there wasn't an oven which is fundamental for self catering. The complex is about a 15 minute walk... More

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
