The villa was beautifully furnished and provided everything we needed.The pool was heated, which made it possible for us to swim in the evening The loctation was idyllic - within walking distance of local amenities, yet rural, private and secluded, but the nicest aspect of this family style villa is the sense of peace, privacy and relaxation you get as soon as you arrive, sitting out having breakfast on the glorious terrace and enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The hosts have put together a fantastic guide book with lots of ideas for places to visit and local restaurants

I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a little different. The drive from Calvi is only 20 minutes and means that you get away from the crowds. We visited in April which meant we swam in the heated pool whilst enjoying the view of the snow-covered mountains. Spectacular! At one point there were 8 us staying and the house still felt spacious. We had such a nice time enjoying our meals on the terrace with a brand new BBQ! The owners were charming and helpful and very attentive to our needs. I couldn't recommend this beautiful (the owner's father is a famous architect and you can tell!) and well maintained house more.
