A Little Gem

5 of 5
We were bowled over by the location of this house. Situated in a mountain village it is surrounded by the most incredible scenery. The arrival instructions were very well organised and Louisa and her family are extremely friendly and helpful. The house is as described on the website and is clean and very well appointed. Everyone in Pietralba is very friendly and welcoming. We spent a very enjoyable evening at the pizzeria in the village and and there is an excellent bakers at the entrance to the village which we walked to every morning for our bread and a coffee. With the option of two terraces you can spend your whole day observing village life! The house is perfectly situated for exploring the La Balagne region. We visited the beach at L'Ostriconi, L'ile Rousse, Calvi and Bastia during our weeks stay and after a long (and hot!) day of sightseeing we were happy to return to the peace and tranquility of this little village house. It really felt like being at home. We will certainly be going back!

Wij waren met 2 personen in dit huis. Ruimte genoeg!! Heerlijk 's morgens op het balkonnetje ontbijten in de zon en tegelijk het gebeuren op het dorpsplein bekijken (verwonderen en bewonderen!) Bakker op ca 100 meter afstand!! De bedden zijn goed, alleen wat te kort voor mij ( ik 195 cm). De sanitaire voorzieningen zijn goed, keuken is klein maar kompleet. In de middag was het goed toeven op het dakterras. Prettige mensen in het dorp die hulpvaardig zijn wanneer je vragen hebt. Enige nadeel was op sommige dagen de 'putlucht' omdat riool niet voor 100% goed ontlucht werd. Daardoor werden de zwanehalzen soms 'leeg' getrokken . helaas...
