Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Saint-Florent - Le Vieux Moulin

Renovated an old building full of charm, situated between sea and mountains

The Old Mill is a big stone building with character, built in the XIX century in the typical architectural tradition of Corsica. Initially devoted to the production of olive oil, it was completely renovated in 2007 and its three levels were converted into three comfortable and independent apartments. The Old Mill is located at the foot of the mountains of Teghime, at the southern entrance of the village of Oletta, on the heights of the charming port of St Florent, which is only 8km far. It is located on the edge of a small river with trees, a quiet and charming site opened on the mountain and the bush.

The situation of the Old Mill is very strategic: it is located at just few minutes from the sea and the exceptional beaches of Saint-Florent and Agriate. It lies at the heart of Nebbio, close to the most picturesque villages of Corsica, as San Michele de Murato (8 km) and on the edge of the wilderness of the desert Agriate. It is finally close to the road to Cap Corse and only 30 minutes drive from Bastia.

THE GARDEN LEVEL- APARTMENT 1: On the garden level is located the first apartment, with an area of 90 m². It is organized on two levels and offers beautiful volumes. Independent entrance by a terrace to the south, facing a small garden bordered by a river. Parking is private.

It has two large bedrooms, two bathrooms with showers and bath, a kitchen and a large lounge with a beautiful stone fireplace. In the south, the dining room leads to a small garden beside the river with a terrace with a pergola, ideal for an outdoor lunch, or simply to enjoy nature.

Finally, the apartment is fully equipped and tastefully furnished. It has many cupboards and storage furnitures; the kitchen is fully equipped and has a fridge, freezer, 4 burner stove, a washing machine and all utensils and dishes needed for your stay.

FIRST FLOOR - APARTMENT 2: The apartment is 75 sqm, access is via the East side of Old Mill by a small bridge over the river. Parking is private.

It has two large bedrooms, two bathrooms with showers and bath, a kitchen and a large living / dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a fridge, stove 4 burners, a washing machine and all utensils and dishes needed for your stay.

In the south, there is a terrace above the river of about 18 m² offering a magnificent view of the mountains and the bush which allows taking meals outside. In the north, the master bedroom opens onto a terrace of about 15 m².

In the south, a terrace of about 30 m² offers superb views of the mountains and the hills. It allows taking meals outside in the shade of a large fig tree and provides access to a large garden of over 1000 m² populated by fruit trees bordering the river. This garden is open to the bush and can be the starting point for walks in the mountains and the hills.

THIRD FLOOR - APARTMENT 3: Apartment of 75 m² located under a beautiful wooden frame which gives it spacious volumes. Its access is through a terrace on the south facade of the building which is reached by an independent staircase. Parking is private.

APARTMENT IN A RENOVATED OLD MILL ON THE BANKS OF A RIVER

A wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

The old mill is a spacious, well equipped and tastefully furnished apartment. We stayed on the middle floor: our balcony overlooking the river was a most tranquil spot. Nodding off to sleep with the noise of a tumbling stream is a delightful experience. The building, an old olive press mill, is very quaint, private and quiet, being slightly off the main road. Very close to the apartment is a small grocery store with freshly baked bread every morning. Oletta village is a charming, rustic Corsican village. From this location we explored, by car, the beautiful north coast: Saint Florent, Desert of Agriates through to Calvi. I highly recommend the Vieux Moulin for a quiet retreat. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful and ensured that our stay exceeded our expectations.

A pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

The building is very pleasant looking and has a rustic appeal, although worn enough to require some attention in places. It sits at the junction of a main road and a side road on the outskirts of Oletta. Parking was perfectly adequate.

We stayed in the top apartment. This looks to be the largest of the 3. We couldn't book this apartment up directly on this website so went direct instead to the owner who was very good to communicate with and accommodating. The only downside is that we paid extra money to transfer funds to a bank account out of the country. Additionally there was a charge for linen and another for cleaning. Our contact whilst at the accommodation was with the very pleasant cleaner (non English speaking).

The apartment has a lot of individual charm and character (some interesting furniture and a library of books). In some ways it was more like staying at a friends house than a dedicated holiday home and to that extent it suffered in terms of cleaning standard (heavy dust under beds and on higher surfaces), a slightly haphazard and chaotic mix of kitchen utensils, other random items throughout and some common disposable items available whilst others were not (half a roll of toilet paper, no spare bin bags..).

We have often been fortunate to benefit from a 'welcome basket' when staying at some properties but missed that gesture here.

The garden was very pleasant and nice to relax in. There is a steep drop to the stream below though. Our 2 boys really liked the (very high) tree house to the side of the property.

We were hassled for a few days by some locally (owned) dogs that became a bit too familiar and needed chasing off on a few occasions although were not threatening.

Oletta is a pleasant village and within walking distance (20 minutes gentle stroll to the village square). You can find a couple of restaurants there, one of which has a great view. There is a small supermarket about 7 minutes walk away along the busy main road.

Whilst we were staying there a significant fire caused extensive damage to the hills just north of Oletta. Watching the fire fighting effort by land and air was particularly dramatic although it was saddening to see the damage caused.

In terms of general location, with a certain amount of reasonable driving there are many highlights that can be reached-the Cape, Bastia, St Florent, many of the northern beaches and some beautiful villages inland, as well as the amazing mountainous landscape around Corte.

Owner's Response: Mr. Nick, I appreciate your assessment although I wanted to point out that the Vieux Moulin is a building that was restored in 2006 and is well maintained. I don't think there are forgotten areas, rather what is wanted is to respect the original architecture that forms part of the identity of the island of Corsica. If you prefer a more modern architecture, Corsica also offers design hotels/apartments . For information to all tenants, apartment number 3 is not the biggest. The Vieux Moulin has a larger apartment (at garden floor), although it is true that apartment 3 is privileged to have a large garden for exclusive use. As for the decor and layout of equipment, everything is designed to make the tenant feel at home, as the decor and equipment are closely linked to the uniqueness of the building. I hope we have achieved a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The apartments are well equipped, the kitchen offers a lot of utensils so that the tenant can enjoy a full vacation. Above all, we want to avoid formatting rent where the tenant feel limited and without comfort. Corsica is an island that offers a wide variety of landscapes, is very wild and natural. If there are animals that have come to the house such as our neighbor's dog, I'm sorry but if the animals are fed, they will always feel welcome. I'm surprised you found dust in the house, especially as the cleaning lady is very conscientious and does its job very well, maybe there was some oversight, if so receives my appology. I appreciate you valued my level of involvement and understanding, especially when you asked me if you could give me your deposit in pounds to avoid expenses in foreign exchange. If you had bank charges, it is normal: you are paying from a country which currency is not euro. Regarding cleaning costs, it is clearly specified in the notice in the rates section, as well as linen and towels service, which is optional. Moreover, it is specified in the contract. Best regards, Mme. de la Roche

Paradisiaque!

  • 5 of 5

Le Vieux Moulin est situé dans un lieu paradisiaque, en bordure d’une charmante petite rivière avec vue sur la montagne et le maquis. Situation stratégique à 10 minutes de Saint-Florent et des plages, à 25 minutes de Bastia. Appartement propre, spacieux, décoré avec goût et bien équipé.

Nous avons passé des vacances exceptionnelles au vieux moulin et le recommandons sans l’ombre d’une hésitation.

Charme et tranquillité

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine au dernier étage du Vieux Moulin d'Oletta et nous avons été très ben accueillis par les propriétaires, Maite et Arnaud. Après un séjour en bord de mer au sud de la Corse, nous avons apprécié le calme d'Oletta et la tranquillité de cette location. Situé à 10 mn en voiture de St-Florent et 20 mn de Bastia, c'est un point de départ idéal pour explorer la région, notamment le Cap Corse, mais aussi l'Ile-Rousse (1h) ou Calvi (1h30).

Quant au Vieux Moulin, il est magnifiquement restauré. Le dernier étage est très lumineux avec beaucoup de cachet. Il est aussi très fonctionnel, propre et bien entretenu, et parfait pour une location en famille. Les enfants peuvent profiter du jardin... quand on ne part pas en vadrouille. Nous y étions en automne, mais c'est sûr qu'en été, sa situation en altitude, proche de la forêt, à proximité du ruisseau, doit garantir la fraîcheur des lieux!

Seul défaut de la Corse en octobre: beaucoup d'activités sont fermées. Mais nous avons pu faire de l'accrobranche à Calvi, louer un bateau pour visiter le désert des Agriate, et toujours trouvé un resto comblant toutes les faims.

Alors oui, pour nos prochaines vacances en Corse, nous reviendrons au Vieux Moulin à Oletta, et nous ne pouvons que vous recommander cette location.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie de votre appréciation. Nous sommes très contents de savoir que vous et votre famille a bien aimé le Vieux Moulin et que vous avez passé un très bon séjour. Effectivement le Vieux Moulin est très bien placé par rapport à Saint Florent, le Cap Corse, Bastia et La Balagne. Le cadre réposant permet de profiter des endroits plus touristiques pour après arriver à la maison et profiter de la tranquillité et le calme. J'espère vous voir bientôt, ça a été pour nous aussi un plaisir de vous avoir au Vieux Moulin!! Salutations, Arnaud & Maite

Erholung und Idylle pur! Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschöner Ort, der zum Erholen einlädt - auch die Kinder! Die alte Mühle ist sehr liebevoll von den Vermietern restauriert worden und wir alle haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Direkt neben dem Haus fließt der "Mühlbach" vorbei, der die Kinder zu Entdeckern macht und die Eltern entspannen lässt. Vom Wohnbereich und Elternschlafzimmer ein wunderbarer Blick ins Grüne, der gerade an heißen Sonnentagen eine kühle Abwechslung bietet. Ausstattungsmäßig findet man im Haus/Wohnung alles, was eine Familie braucht (2 Bäder, Küche mit Waschmaschine, TV etc.). Der Außenbereich ist großzügig und perfekt zum Grillen und "Chillen". Zudem verkehrsgünstige Anbindung. Wir sind angekommen und haben uns alle wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieter bzw. ihre Assistentin sind überaus freundlich, hilfsbereit und geben gerne wertvolle Inseltipps. Eins ist klar: wir kommen wieder und empfehlen es gerne weiter!
