Airport noise in Calvi??

We are looking at Calvi for a holiday for summer 2013 but are concerned that it he town is quite close to the airport.. Does anyone know if this is a problem? Will a relaxing holiday be spoilt by the noise of planes taking off??

Hi, dont worry, this is not Gatwick - noise from the airport in Calvi is not really an issue, this is only a small regional airport with a limited number of flights and small aircrafts only due to the length of the runway.

Enjoy Corsica!

Agree with VillaFanny. There are only a limited number of flights and the location of the airport, surrounded by mountains, means that we did not hear the planes at all. It is however, pretty cool to watch the planes in the distance coming in against the mountains when you are on the beach.
