THINK EXPERIENCES IN CORSICA

Booking a villa with The Thinking Traveller doesn't just grant you access to one of the most desirable villas in Corsica but also to a whole range of additional services to make the most from your holiday. Our team of Experience Specialists are on hand once you have confirmed your booking to arrange cooks, cars and more.

In-villa cooks

One thing is without doubt: an essential ingredient of any successful holiday is good food. Restaurants and cafes are as important as beaches, Cathedrals and archaeological sites. Sampling the local food, living the gastronomic life of the natives and sipping on a glass of chilled wine made just around the corner are the essence of “joie de vivre” and the most pleasurable way of immersing yourself in the indigenous culture.

The Thinking Traveller can offer all this and more: in most of our properties it is possible to organise the service of an “in-villa” cook. This enables you to sample the local food at its most authentic in the comfort of your own home. You will neither have to set foot in the kitchen nor worry about driving back after a glass or two. Any young children in your group can have a normal bedtime, you will not have to worry about shopping or washing up, and that extra time can be spent lounging by the pool or sipping an aperitif while watching the sunset. Then, as if by magic, it will be time for that well-earned feast.

Our cooks, while not all being professional chefs, produce genuine, delicious expressions of the local cuisine. They know the right butchers and fishermen and will be able to source local products such as cheeses and cured meats that you will not find in many restaurants.

You can hire a cook for as many or as few meals as you like. After a long tiring journey, it may be nice on arrival at your villa to be greeted by mouth-watering fragrances emanating from the kitchen and the prospect of a good dinner to get you immediately into the holiday mood.

Just let us know your requirements in advance and we will organise everything else!

NB This service is subject to availability. We cannot, therefore, guarantee it will always be possible to organise. Cooks should be paid directly, both for ingredients (receipts will be provided) and for the service.

Car hire delivery

Joining a long queue at the car hire desk is not the best start to your holiday. By the time you've got the keys and loaded the luggage you’ll probably be wishing you were already at your villa, sitting by the pool with a glass of wine in hand... To remove such unnecessary stress, we recommend our in-villa car hire delivery service. It’s simple and satisfyingly effective. Once you've booked your villa, just get in touch with our team of Experience Specialists and ask them to: 

a) arrange a transfer to whisk you straight from the airport to your villa (no queuing)

b) book you a hire car to be delivered directly to your villa on the day after your arrival (in-villa hire car deliveries for those arriving on Sundays in July and August will be on Monday afternoon).

Airport transfers and private chauffeurs

Our trusted drivers are always on hand to make your life a bit easier. Just say the word and they’ll be at your villa’s gate, ready to take you wherever you want to go. They’ll also be delighted to pick you up from the airport and whisk you off to your villa in the smoothest way possible: no navigating, no getting lost, just sit back and enjoy the ride.




 

Watersports

The transparent, summer-warm waters of southern Corsica are perfect for learning or mastering watersports. With a great mix of calm, shallow bays and more wind-blown venues, there are ideal sea conditions for all levels. 

If you're a client of The Thinking Traveller staying in one of our villas near Pianattoli, we'd be happy to help you arrange the following watersports activities for you:

Kite surfing
Wind surfing
Kayaking
Paddle boarding

You can book a course (from beginners to advanced) or just hire equipment for a day or two. For more information, contact experiences@thethinkingtraveller.com or call us on +44 (0) 203 603 4478.
