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 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!
