A perfect getaway - sea, views and tranquility

5 of 5
The house is perfectly situated, at the very top of Tizzano, looking down on the beautiful beach and across the bay. Very peaceful, as barely any passing traffic. The vast living/kitchen/dining room has beautiful views through every window. The house was spotlessly clean, and every bedroom looked fresh and welcoming. It is simply furnished, but provides everything you would need. The drive is very steep, and parking and driving up it was a bit intimidating at first, but you get used to it. Being at the very top of the hill, it's a steep walk down to the beach, but easily managed in 10 minutes, and quicker for fitter people! We managed with 3 ladies aged over 90! Tizzano itself provides everything you could need - a few excellent restaurants right on the beach, a couple of shops for all the basics, and a perfect, huge beach, with the whitest sand, and bluest sea. Being up high, it is quite exposed, so when it is windy, it is difficult to find a sheltered spot - but that's when the large amount of space inside, and the huge french windows are a particular asset. If it is very windy there are plenty of other more sheltered beaches to explore - we recommend Campomoro. Dealing with Francesca, and arranging the booking was so easy - she was so helpful, and accommodating. Paulina, the lovely lady who cleans the house, and welcomes you could not have been kinder or more helpful. All in all this was a hugely successful holiday, in a lovely house, in a perfect position.

Perfect

5 of 5
We loved the location, view, balcony, decoration, equipment, pool…. in fact everything about this holiday rental was perfect for us. Tizzano is small with a couple of basic shops and a few restaurants and it is approx 40 minutes to the nearest supermarket but if you are happy with that it is a lovely place for a peaceful holiday in a relatively unspoilt part of Corsica. Jean Philippe is charming and we were delighted to accept his kind offer to use his pick up to access some of the beautiful beaches along very bumpy tracks. Hope to return next year
