Located in a quiet village in the mountains, this house is sat high above a quiet road with an awesome view from the lounge window and balcony. The only noise is from the birds and crickets which was glorious! The house owner Marie met us close by and drove us to the house and showed us around. She made sure we knew where everything was and that she owned the local bar so wouldn't be far away if we needed anything! The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, pots & pans, dishes & cutlery, hob and separate oven. It was nice to have the coffee machine, something we made good use of. There were only 2 of us staying but there's definitely room for 4 adults (1 double bed & 2 single beds). The house is only a few years old so everything felt quite modern. It was nice to have the bedroom cupboards to hang our clothes up. There's an iron, spare towels and blankets. There's a drying rack outside with lots of space in case you do any washing and plenty of room for sunbathing and dining on the patio, despite looking small in the pictures. The electric gate made us feel secure and operates via a key fob. We walked into the village a few times for a drink and a meal (a few mins walk), we used the post office and got some supplies from the local butchers. There's also a patisserie in the village but we didn't try it out. Everyone was really nice and even though we didn't speak much French, we still got by ok because they made an effort with us (lucky for us!). The nearest supermarket is a reasonable size Spa 20 mins by car, but that's about it accept a few restaurants dotted around. The main city of Ajaccio about 40 mins away is where we flew to and it has an abundance of shops including lots of large supermarkets, home stores and a Decathlon. You would not be able to stay on this island without hiring a car because the mountains make everything further to get to but that's just the nature of the terrain and the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was a nice, comfortable house to come home to after a day of exploring.
This was our first visit to Corsica so all of our knowledge of the island was gained from books and lots of research.
Casaglione is small and picturesque. Ideal if you want to enjoy a quiet and relaxing vacation in a typical Corsican village.
The Villa has been designed well with great space in the main living area. It has been finished to a high standard and has everything you could possible need to make your stay very comfortable, even 2 coffee machines.
The outside space really worked for us with a generous sized seating area and a BBQ that we used nearly everyday. Philippe was very warm and welcoming and was always available to help if needed.
We would highly recommend a visit to Sagone just 10 minutes away by car. It has the most spectacular beach and restaurants. All in all our experience of the island, the people we met, the food and wine and Casaglione will ensure that we will definitely be back.
We had a fabulous holiday. Merci Philippe
