We were welcomed in cheerfully even though we were very late after our bags hadn't all arrived with us. Property was clean, cool (a/c a lovely luxury) and superbly well equipped. Not until the morning did we quite realise how special the location was! Front line, looking out over marina, beach and estuary absolutely stunning. Gardens were well kept and beautiful. Internet was fast and easy (it went offline for a short time but was fixed in moments after text to Nathalie). We have 2 small children 2 and 4 who loved running about the place and the fences etc meant it was safe. Nathalie had arranged for some toys on the balcony (many thanks) and the children enjoyed the tree house, buckets and spades. We brought an inflatable paddling pool which was useful for the children, but the beach, and river is only a few metres away. The configuration of the properties is interesting and suited to larger groups if booked together (something we may do in future) it is worth while enquiring with Nathalie if you have a larger group. Despite being near the estuary mosquitos weren't an issue (which was nice!). Looking forward to coming back again in the future.

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.
