Six guests from around the U.S. met in Corsica to celebrate a milestone birthday. We cannot wait to go back! We selected U Castellu because of its location and the generous amenities at the villa. The week was spent swimming, shopping for local ingredients for our meals, hiking, walking, talking, and enjoying fine Corsican wines. The sunsets were memorable, and the villa is clean and full of every modern convenience needed to make for a perfect vacation. Our questions were answered by owner Adele prior to our arrival so that our stay was comfortable and inspiring. We ate at several local restaurants and enjoyed fresh seafood every day. I suggest side trips to Bonifacio (ancient walled city) and Bastia, as well as Napolean's home in Ajaccio. The entire island is rich with history and beautiful people who welcomed us.
We had a brilliant time at Villa Serena. The terraces offer stunning views across the Golfe d'Ajaccio which we enjoyed at all times of the day. The pool with its child-alarm and high gate was very helpful for us with the 4 children in our party. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and the Carrefour, poissonerie and many boulangeries are all close by. We thoroughly enjoyed discovering the beautiful beaches south of Porticcio which is quite built up (and can be loud at night with music from the nightclubs). We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
