You definitely need a car if you want to go anywhere apart from the beach. This isn't a downside to the property at all, most other properties are the same. Views are stunning from the bedroom window and terrace over to Cargese. Well equipped and was clean on arrival. Key code entry to the grounds making you feel safe. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely views of hills from terrace. Well equipped kitchen. Only downside was the outdoor space was a bit unkept so no garden for kids to play in. A bit of confusion and delay over confirmation of booking.
