Wonderful villa, terrific location, lovely hosts!

5 of 5
We loved this villa! It has everything you need - great outdoor area with ample lounges, large pool and attractive eating area. The kitchen is well equipped for foodies like us, but Annette's recommendations for local restaurants were great alternatives for experiencing Corsican cuisine. The bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy and we slept really well on the comfy beds. The bookshelves offer plenty of resources for hiking and seeing the sites of Corsica. The local beaches are lovely and within walking distance, with good cafes and facilities. The villa is in a great location for visiting Porto Vecchio, Bonafacio, Bavella and the GR20. Even Bastia, Patrimonio and Saint-Florent are accessible, even if further afield. And finally, Annette is a terrific host - very welcoming and ready to offer suggestions for making the most of our Corsican holiday. We'll be back!

Great for a group

4 of 5
We were a family group of three couples and a baby and the house worked really well for a reunion like this -4 double bedrooms and more beds in another more open area which would be fine for children. The kitchen worked well, although could get crowded, and we loved having 2 fridges and an outdoor area for BBQ's and coffee making. All our meals were outside. We rather admired the way the owners had created the "resort" themselves -sure some things are a bit rough and yet to be finished -but the bits we needed were great. There's wifi at the pool which is a nice touch. We went snorkelling and kayaking at the cove, and that was lovely -it's rough getting over the rocks -but it is just below the house! There are some great sandy beaches with beach restaurants just a few minutes drive away and a surprisingly good supermarket on our side of Solenzara. The local winery was fun and had some easy drinking inexpensive bottles -it seemed to open at cocktail hour -not during the day! A highlight was the drive to Notre Dame des Neiges -the most amazing scenic drive with a stop for a swim in the water holes in the river (beware -it is much cooler up high -take off the wet swimmers!) Other highlights were a day at Bonifacio and a trip to Plage Santa Guilia. The owners are delightful (even though our languages were a bit cobbled together!) and are keen for guests to enjoy their stay. I thought it reasonably priced for the amount of accommodation it offered and the absolute beach front position -OK the walk to the cove is a bit rough! But it's there!
