Discover the Gorges de Spelunca

We had the place to ourselves, which was great - although because we came late in the season, the sun left the garden and the swimming pool in the early afternoon. There is a double bedroom upstairs, which is tastefully and intriguingly decorated with African pictures and ornaments. Downstairs in the living room there is a sofa bed and a single bed - though I can't imagine who would want to say there. Not convenient for kids and no privacy for adults. The washing facilities in bathroom are rather eccentric. There is no means of sealing the plug holes in either the bath or the wash hand basin, so full immersion of any kind isn't possible. The shower isn't fixed to the wall either, which means the only way of freshening up is to hold the shower over one's head and crouch down in the bath and hope not to spray the floor. We decided not to drive for miles to restaurants, so cooked for ourselves instead. This was fine, but there isn't much choice of knives and utensils. These are minor criticisms. Over all we loved staying in Ville di Paraso. The area is stunning, the villages extraordinary, and the mountains fabulous places to explore. On a final note, it's definitely worth brushing up on your French. No one we met spoke English, including the lady from the village who gave us the key.

The photo's showed a modern villa with wide open spaces and that was exactly what we found, everything was in great order. Both bedrooms were well furnished with superb bathrooms and showers, the kitchen had all expected items but would benefit from some extra cooking knives (one supplied). The pool was an excellent addition that we used allot more than we expected too, it's compact but great for cooling off after a hot day. By far the best part of the let was Mr Frassati himself, nothing was too much trouble and we did have a couple of problems connecting to the wifi, he was there within the hour to help sort it out. We couldn't have asked for any more effort or a more pleasant host. If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet villa with access to both the mountains and the coast you would be hard pressed to find better. Highly recommended!

Having visited Corsica many times as a family some years ago we picked the mill as a relaxing spot from which to revisit our favourite places in the balagne region. It provided us not only with a perfect base to explore the villages from, go out to the beaches, river and local restaurants but also a beautiful spot to enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural Corsica. The property is very well equipped and maintained, the pool is absolutely gorgeous, especially after a long hike or day on the beach but also for a morning dip (such a luxury!) and we really enjoyed the lovely garden, patio and vine-covered pergola for relaxed family meals. Thanks for a lovely stay!
