Review of Casa Del Sole Apartments in New Caledonia.

Casa Del Sole Apartments – Self-catering apartments, with double beach frontage.

Facing one beach (Baie des Citrons), and overlooking another (Anse Vata), with a vast empty block in front, dramatic ocean views are guaranteed from all windows. The apartments are in a high-rise, easily the tallest in the immediate area, and feature one or two bedrooms, as well as kitchens, living areas, and laundry service. They’re all spacious and well-furnished, and the balconies are extended, with access from the bedrooms and living rooms. Other benefits are the proximity to chic bistros and the secure undercover parking. The pool, on top of the carpark building, is an added bonus.

  • Guests: Caters well for families, although many guests seem to be business people on longer stays.
