Amazing place

5 of 5
A lovely house with fantastic views of the mountains and the sea. It is close to great beaches for swimming and snorkelling. There are lovely walks from Speloncato to neighbouring villages passing through oak and olive groves. There are plenty of trails in the hills around the village which are well marked. Speloncato has a well stocked Epicerie. Best of all we enjoyed just sitting on the balcony taking in the beautiful view and watching the sun set each evening. The owners were very helpful. We would definitely recommend Maison Les Calanches if you want to get away from the stresses of modern day life.

Wonderful stay in stylish villa

5 of 5
Six adults and four small children stayed in June/ July 2017 and had a wonderful stay in this very nice villa. The pool and outside area is spacious and nice with great views. The kitchen is well equipped and the living room and bed rooms are nicely furnished. Algajola is a small and charming village 5 mins walk from the house. The only negative thing about the house for us was the very steep stairs to the 1st floor, as they were a bit scary for the smallest children. But this turned out to be a smaller problem than first feared. Would definetively recommend the villa and Algajola as a destination.
