The owner and her brother met us and were very friendly and welcoming. We had a lot of useful and helpful information from them about the village and Corsica in general. Calvi, Ille de Rousse and the beautiful town of St Florent are all within easy driving distance. The house itself is very up to date although the building itself is very old with stacks of character. The panoramic view from the sunny veranda of the valley below is breath taking. A great centre if you are keen walker and not far from beautiful beaches further west.As Pietralba is an ancient hilltop village its roads are very narrow and steep, so take a small car. Highly recommended.

Lovely property, clean bright airy and spacious. Loved the sliding doors and decking. Didn't realise the pool wouldn't be fully in the sun in mid Sept and the front was a close to a road and felt a little exposed. However would happily stay there again. Corsica wonderful especially the fact that English isn't widely spoken, fun to 'have a go' en francais
