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!

Modern, spacious villa in a quiet setting.

5 of 5
We stayed for a week in the middle of September and wished we could stay longer. The villa is spacious, modern and very well equipped; there was nothing that wasn't provided and it was beautifully clean. Although it is big and open plan, it didn't feel too big for just the two of us, but it would comfortably suit a larger family. The pool is perfect and the large patio and garden areas mean that the villa is very private. The owners are lovely, as is Anette, who dealt with the booking and came to see us on arrival. The villa is in a very quiet area, just up the hill from the town and gave us the perfect opportunity to relax after driving from the UK. It is also well positioned for exploring, if you wish to see more of Corsica, which is beautiful. Solenzara is a busy small town that has lots of restaurants to choose from and small shops, as well as a small supermarket. We had a wonderful week, would certainly recommend this villa and look forward to returning one day.
