A beautiful, spotless, well maintained and equipped apartment on the 1st floor (with lift) of a gated apartment community. The dual aspect balcony overlooked the immaculate gardens and the lovely pool. (Unfortunately for us, the pool was closed for 7 out of our 14 days for cleaning, but nothing could have been done about that). The air conditioning was much appreciated at night. The underground parking was a bonus in the heat.
The location was ideal for us, being less than 5 minutes walk from the beach, and around a 10 minute walk into town.
Calvi itself is a stunning place, the beach is long, with powdery sand and shallow for a long way out. The harbour is full of all sorts of boats from fishing boats to super yachts. The town has quaint narrow cobbled pedestrian streets, lots of little shops and places to eat out.
We found Corsica in general to be quite expensive eg €1.70 a litre of petrol, €14.00 for a takeaway pizza, €8.50 for a very small box of liquitabs for the washing machine, but well worth it, as we can’t wait to return! The only negative was that there were loads of mosquitoes who seemed to be ravenously hungry and liked us!!! Despite deet, citronella etc, again nothing to be done about that.
We highly recommend apartment Revellata, Calvi, and Corsica, and can’t wait to return.
We had a weeks stay in this apartment and it was really relaxing. The apartment is spacious and well located and very well maintained, it has a large balcony overlooking a lovely pool. The beach is fab and only a short 10 minute walk away, the town centre has lots to offer and is very pretty. A really relaxing holiday destination in a well equipped apartment. If you are hiring a car I would recommend a small car as the garage parking is tight but perfect for a smaller vehicle, the underground parking keeps it nice and cool.
The apartment is lovely, spacious and in a really nice, secure development. We loved overlooking the pool and the noise didn't bother us! We travelled with two kids under 6 and the layout really worked for us – the kids went to bed and we didn't disturb them in the lounge. The balcony is huge.
The location is really awesome - five minutes to a lovely beach which is shallow and great for little ones, five minutes from the supermarket and then a ten minute walk to the shops and restaurants in the harbour.
The agency staff were excellent.
Lovely, well equipped and comfortable apartment within short walking distance of centre of the beautiful little town of Calvi. Apartment is well furnished with every need catered for and is a real home from home. Air con much appreciated. The balcony is large with a lovely selection of outdoor furniture including sun lounges. The balcony overlooks the swimming pool which was busy during our stay and we only used it early in the morning when we had it to ourselves. We were there during peak season so to be expected. The apartments are set in well kept grounds and it was never noisy at night. We visited beach 5 mins walk away several times. The water is some of the clearest I have seen for years and great if You have little ones as shallow for some distance. Thanks to owner Carol for the use of beach parasol! Much appreciated. And for your assistance to us prior to our departure. We found the letting agent to be most helpful and kind upon our arrival. Wish we had booked for 2 weeks!
I thoroughly recommend this apartment for a relaxing holiday on a beautiful island.
Convenient location for both the beach and the town which is about 10 minutes walk. Nice pool although it was very busy at peak times, and this did make the apartment noisy during the day as it directly overlooks the pool; however the pool does close in the evening so at least the problem is limited.
Apartment is comfortable and generally well equipped. Underground parking is useful. The air conditioning is essential in peak months.
Fantastic location being only 5 mins from the wonderful beach and a short stroll into the town of Calvi with it's beautiful harbour, numerous restaurants and shops. The apartment is large and well furnished with a fantastic balcony over looking the shared pool. Underground parking is a bonus as keeps the car cool! And it is very quiet at night so easy to get to sleep. The agents were really helpful driving us up to the apartment to let us in and show us around. Highly recommend
