Centrally located for all delights:

What we love best about this top-floor loft apartment is its location and inspiring view (above) of Calvi's Citadelle village, a 13th century Genoese fortress towering above the azure bay of Calvi. Sunrise and sunset are especially dramatic on the Citadelle and with the brightly-colored marina at its base, present an unforgettable panorama.

Everything is within walking distance - although the nearby villages, interior valleys and coastal roads are incredibly beautiful - more than enough to warrant a car rental. A third transportation alternative is Corsica's railway which crosses the island connecting villages and beaches along the coast and through the mountains. Perfect for a day or overnight trip, Calvi's railway station is 2 blocks from the apartment, direction Citadelle.

Corsican Vacation Apartment amenities:

* Available for weekly rentals, the apartment sleeps 4.

Apartment includes a roomy upstairs loft with new double bed, armoire and window with views of mountains and Madonna de la Serra. The main floor offers a large kitchen/living room with new double sofa-bed, full-size bathroom with tub/shower, and an enclosed terrace off the living room with panoramic Citadelle and sea view.

* Across the street from a World-Class sandy beach along the crescent bay of Calvi

From incredibly soft sand and warm, shallow waters, to bars and restaurants, watercraft or private lounge chair rentals to soak up the sun- ALL with the magnificent view of Calvi (see pictures above). We believe nothing's quite as wonderful as a swim in the Mediterranean Sea, and with such a short walk, you can go for a quick dip or luxurious soak at a moments notice!

* A short walk to Calvi's Citadelle

Which artfully blends past and present with ancient cathedrals, restaurants and residences alternating along the winding cobblestone streets. No matter your direction, just around the corner awaits breathtaking views of the sea, mountains and natural beauty of the land

At night, the Citadelle is transformed into the place to be, as restaurants overflow with glamorous night life, and people promenade along the quay, for a glimpse of the 'rich and famous' enjoying a late-night-supper aboard their yachts.

* 1-minute walk to three boulangeries.

When you're craving a fresh crisp baguette, pain au chocolate or croissant apricot, you're biggest decision is which boulangerie to visit. You'll find one on the ground floor of the apartment building, one across the street and another only half-a-block away at the SuperU grocery (which is quite good). Two more boulangeries await a few blocks away towards the Citadelle.

* 5-minutes walk to Calvi's many fine restaurants

Where you can enjoy delicious Corsican, French or Italian dining alongside the locals. Or pick up something to heat-up for dinner at the SuperU, which has an extensive variety of take-home dinners (of French quality and taste), Corsican charcuterie, cheeses, local wines, aperitifs and deserts.

* 15-minutes from the Airport (Airport code: CLY). You can take a taxi into Calvi, or pick up your car rental at the airport.
