We appreciated Dominique's responsiveness to our communications and her help with finding the villa and the preparations she'd made to welcome us. We were happy to have chosen this location - close to beaches and with a wonderful view of the sunrise over the sea, especially when viewed from the jacuzzi. Shops and restaurants just a few kilometres away. We were in Corsica in early October, and it was still warm enough to swim in the sea. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the peace and quiet - the villa is quite near the coast road, but high above it, so any traffic sound (and it wasn't a busy road) mingled with the sound of sea.
It's hard to come up with enough superlatives to describe this gite. Granite-built on the side of a mountain, well-equipped, comfortable although not luxurious furnishings...but it's the location that made it so unforgettable. We've stayed in a variety of holiday homes and apartments over the last few years, but this one beat them all hands down. It's the ideal hideaway. We spent hours each day sitting on the terrace or in the little outdoor eating area, just enjoying the gentle sounds of the Corsican wilderness - and evenings in the hot-tub star-gazing and counting shooting stars. We had red kite kewing overhead, wild boar grunting in the garden as they foraged for acorns...and a very amiable neighbourhood cat to keep us company. The host was friendly and helpful. Between his limited English and our rusty French we were able to communicate pretty effectively. He recommended the best beaches (often deserted), the most incredible pre-historic sites and astounding mountain drop-offs. All within an hour or so by car. We would have no hesitation in returning for another stay.
