Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Castifao - A Casetta

A Casetta is a house made with river stones that has been completely renovated using traditional materials: terra cotta floors, chestnut wood beams, oakwood parquet, stone sinks, lime paint, and much more. It perfectly combines modernity and tradition for an exotic holiday in the middle of a charming, natural setting. The property is calm and located on an eight-hectare plot by the Tartagine River with centenarian oak trees. It is ideally situated at the gates of La Balagne, Corte, and the valley of Asco, so in winter you can enjoy a mild climate, with snow-covered mountains located less than 1 h away by car. The house offers large spaces with 4.80-m high arched ceilings. The ground floor offers a shower room with a large walk-in shower, a toilet, a fully fitted open-plan kitchen with an antique stone sink, and a living area with fireplace, dining area, TV, and 2 double sofa beds. Upstairs, you will find a double bedroom with separate toilet and a mezzanine with two single beds. The decoration is new and refined. An unroofed gated pool (8 x 3.50 x 1.4 m) will be at your disposal.

Why Mathieu Cervoni chose Haute Corse

This centenarian construction has been a family-owned property for many generations. Until 1960, it used to be a barn and sheepfold. Completely abandoned for 40 years, it became my property after family succession in 2002. That was when, my wife, our children, and I have decided to bring it back to life, renovating both the inside and the outside areas, without taking away its charm, its rive-stone areas, its arches, and so on. It gives me great satisfaction to bring the property of my ancestors, where I spent part of my adolescence, back to life.

What makes this house unique

Ideally located in the very centre of Haute-Corse, this charming construction will allow you for touring around to the sea and mountains in a very short time, without having to travel long distances by car.

Excellente prestation

  • 5 of 5

Location avec beaucoup de cachet : la vue est magnifique, la bergerie rénovée avec goût par Matthieu.

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable de part l'accueil de Matthieu, le charme et la fonctionnalité de la location sans oublier la situation qui permet de rayonner sur de nombreux sites corses fabuleux ( la vallée d'Asco, la vallée de la Restonica, Corte, les merveilleux village de la Balagne, le désert des Agriates et ses plages paradisiaques, l'Ile rousse, etc...)

Je recommande cette adresse vivement et remercie une nouvelle fois Matthieu pour son accueil, sa générosité et sa gentillesse.

Liebevoll restaurierte alte Bergerie mit wunderbarem Bergblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben als Familie mit 3 Kindern wunderbare 2 Wochen in dem Ferienhaus verbracht, in dem es an nichts fehlt. Der Blick über den Pool hinweg in die Berge Korsikas ist umwerfend. Der Vermieter war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und es hat alles hervorragend geklappt. Auch wenn der nächst gelegene Ort Ponte Leccia nicht viel bietet, findet man zumindest gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in 5 min mit dem Auto. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Vielen Dank an M. Cervoni für die schöne Zeit!

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

As beautiful as a holiday home can be. Mr. Cervoni and his lovely wife are wonderful and really endeavored owners and hosts. We had everything we needed and the house and pool are quite clean and cozy. The view is absolutely amazing, the property is very well located: What more could you want from a holiday home. We enjoyed our stay a lot and will sure come back as soon as possible. Thank you, Mrs. and Mr. Cervoni for some wonderful and unforgettable days!
