About the property

2 villas by sandy beach

MAXI VILLA PIAZZE & MINI VILLA PIAZZE are two family-owned air-conditioned villas in a wonderful location in the small bay and little port of Sant'Ambroggio near Calvi. Just two minutes walk from the safe sandy beach, both villas are fully equipped with all the comforts of home and have spacious terraces with stunning views overlooking the bay and the beach. All reservations are by the week, from Sunday to Sunday.

MAXI VILLA PIAZZE has two double bedrooms, both ensuite. MINI VILLA PIAZZE has one double bedroom and is perfect for a couple.

Both villas have shaded dining terraces with barbecues and grills and fabulous views. And both have extra fridges to keep your Corsican wine beautifully chilled for when you relax on the terrace after a swim and watch the sun go down.

The lower terraces have sun-loungers and parasols and although the the villas are next door to one another they are separated by a 6 foot high hedge to ensure privacy.

Both villas have their own systems of free WiFi and telephones are connected for free local calls and all incoming calls. There are books, TV, maps and our own 'Handy Hints' with local information. Most useful of all are the Visitors Books spanning the years and setting out ideas and opinions about where to go and what to do. Many of our guests have been coming back to our villas over many summers and their comments in the Visitors Books are there for all to see and we greatly appreciate them. We welcome suggestions and feedback and make improvements every year.

A car is recommended if you want to explore the mountains and villages of Corsica and if you decide to come to one of our much-loved villas you can be sure of a wonderful relaxing holiday on this beautiful island.

About Daphne Vickers

My husband and I fell in love with Corsica more than 20 years ago when we visited it for the first time. We bought No.3 Piazze straight away and later we bought No.4. We used to spend the whole summer there with family joining us for early morning swims, trips to the mountains and drinks on the terrace. Sadly, a few years ago, my husband died but I could not bear to sell my lovely villas and decided to try holiday lets. It took off straight away and I have had some wonderful visitors - even though I seldom meet them! Over the years and with the help of my son Peter, who owns the properties with me, improvements have been made every year with new bathrooms and kitchens and enlarged terraces. Each year we have a new project and my love for this beautiful island continues to grow and will always be with me. Daphne Vickers.

Daphne Vickers purchased this villa in 1989

Why Daphne Vickers chose Lumio

My cousins bought a nearby property here in 1969 which they still own.When we visited them for a holiday in 1989 we immediately purchased Maxi Villa

(No.3 Piazze) in this wonderful location which is very special. When Mini Villa (No.4 Piazze) was up for sale a few years later we also purchased that so that more family and friends could visit. Both villas remain family homes which we update year by year for our visitors to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

Fabulous sea views from the spacious terraces; beautiful tree-filled area; lovely sandy beach; small port with friendly shops and restaurant and both properties fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.....

location tout confort , 1 mn à pied de la plage,

  • 5 of 5

très belle location, très bien agencée avec une vue extraordinaire sur la plage, qui est au pied de la villa, et sur la mer. Cette villa est très bien équipée tant à l'intérieur (lava vaisselle, lave linge, micro ondes...) qu'à l'extérieur (barbecue, salons de jardin, transat, ...). Idéale pour 4 personnes sans se gêner puisque 2 sallle de bains+toilettes. La climatisation est un plus l'été très appréciable. La propriétaire est à l'écoute de ses locataires et s'efforce de remplir toutes nos attentes. Je recommande vivement cet hébergement qui de plus est dans un coin de la corse avec beaucoup de choses à faire et à voir

Owner's Response: Lovely to have guests who return to our two lovely villas year after year and enjoy the improvements we make every season - just as we welcome new visitors who come for a relaxing holiday to enjoy the stunning views from the terrace with a chilled glass of Corsican wine. Cheers! Daphne.

Well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at No 4 after exploring some of the island for 4 days previously. Already charmed by Corsica we were delighted to settle for a week in bijou No.4. Set in a lovely location with a sun terrace overlooking the interesting bay the property was equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable self catering stay. Clean, well maintained and well laid out we enjoyed every minute of our stay, eating out most evenings on the terrace beneath some lovely sunsets. We walked some of the lanes towards the headland from where Calvi can be viewed in all its grandeur. We visited beautiful Calvi, ate in one of the very good restaurants a couple of streets back from the harbour (they are better value than those right on the harbour front) and were captivated Calvi's charm and history.

From the sun terrace of No 4 we spotted some rare birds and we were happy to simply soak up the atmosphere of this delightful quiet, relaxing spot. We only heard Club Med activities once. We would very much like to return some time and highly recommend this to lovers of nature and beauty.

The perfect spot on a beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! Everything you could possibly need is here – the villa is so well equipped it’s like a home from home – even including two en suite bathrooms. To sit on the terrace with a glass of chilled Corsican wine watching the sun go down over the magnificent bay – the perfect spot on this beautiful island to spend two weeks in the sun and on the beach.
