Magnifique maison respirant l'histoire

  • 5 of 5

Habitués à louer de belles villas en Corse ou ailleurs, cette villa est très agréable car elle réunit à la fois l'impression d'y vivre un bout d'histoire et à la fois un confort relativement moderne avec une piscine grande, bien conçue et intégrée dans l'ensemble. La terrasse sous les grandes arcades, avec la vue sur la baie de Calvi est un régal. De très nombreuses chambres (9 je crois) (on était 10), souvent avec la sdb jointe, ce qui est un vrai plus comme chacun sait. A l'intérieur, des meubles d’antiquaires improbables, à peu près tout ce qu'il faut pour y vivre bien en gros. Le bar à 100m chez Pierre et Baby pour y prendre un pastis, la maison est au coeur historique du gros village de Calenzana. A l'image des vieilles maisons Corses, la présence de pieds de lit dans la plupart des belles chambres est en revanche un handicap si vous êtes grands! Je recommande. Sébastien

great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, Elizabeth Galvin, rented the Villa Bonnet in Calanzana, Corsica, for two weeks in August of this year. Her guests, besides me, were her three sons and five grandchildren. Also, a couple of friends of one of the sons came from Britain for a couple of days. The villa was excellent in its design for sleeping, eating, and enjoying the great surrounding views of the volcanic range of mountains and Mediterranean Sea. It also had a walled-in beautiful and almost daily-cleaned swimming pool in an area that had a large dining table, a barbeque, and great views over the wall of a range of volcanic mountains. It was also on a street with several nearby nice restaurants. Its interior was furnished with elegant and often antique furniture and great paintings and sculpture. It was also a short drive from there to the small city of Calvi with its interesting architecture and interesting tourist attractions and beaches. It was also surrounded by roads viewing the great mountain of Corsica and other interesting villages. The owner’s son, M. Pierre-Jean Bonnet, was there on our arrival and mostly during our stay (even though his permanent home was on the mainland). He helped with any of our questions about the Villa and/or its Corsican surroundings. We know of no Americans that have been to Corsica. The prospect of staying at the Villa Bonnet in Corsica might change their minds. Robert E. Lingle

Wonderful house in best location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely house! We were a big family of three generations, 15 persons aged between 1 and 73 who all enjoyed the house and its surroundings. We especially appreciated the big and beautiful house with many separate bedrooms and bathrooms, the big and well equipped kitchen, the pool area, the surroundings with near access to fresh bread and grocery store, and amazing walks along the GR20 just outside the door. Our rented cars could be parked outside in the private parking and trips to mountain villages, Calvi, vineyards and nice beaches were easily accesible. We definately want to come back!

Magnifique maison très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Très agréable souvenir de ce petit paradis: l'âme d'une maison de famille, pour tribu nombreuse; la vue depuis la terrasse sur la baie de Calvi est magnifique; la maison très bien équipée pour les grands et les enfants et rénovée avec goût; situation idéale entre la mer, la montagne et les villages corses.

Une très belle maison au pied du GR20

  • 5 of 5

Nous reviendrons dans cette maison que nous avons aimé avec nos amis et que nous avons loué à 4 familles dont 9 enfants.

La maison est très pratique, confortable et ne manque de rien. Elle est magnifiquement située au coeur de Calenzana, à proximité immédiate de la place située au centre du village et à moins de 200m du départ du GR20. La maison est très calme, dotée du piscine et bénéficie d''un ensoleillement maximum. La vue sur le massif Corse est splendide. La piscine est très propre et assez grande pour toute une tribu. La propriétaire est fort sympathique et nous accueille avec plaisir.

Le village de Calenzana est agréable, la plage est à moins de 10 minutes en voiture, jamais eu d'embouteillage. Attention toutefois aux trafic voitures pour accéder à l'île Rousse certaines matinées.

Des chants polyphoniques le jeudi soir sont audibles au loin, venant de la chapelles, sans que cela soit gênant, bien au contraire.

Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à séjourner dans cette maison, nous la conseillons et nous y retournerons volontiers à une prochaine occasion.

Merci encore à la propriétaire pour son accueil et ce séjour.

Juste Parfait !!!

  • 5 of 5

La maison est tout simplement fabuleuse, encore plus belle que sur les photos !

Nous étions 4 familles avec enfants et il y avait largement assez d'espace pour tous. La terrasse est sublime avec une vue imprenable ! La piscine est très agréable. Décorée avec goût cette maison est vraiment parfaite pour de belles vacances en Corse. La propriétaire est adorable. Bref 5/5. N'hésitez pas !!!

The village is ideally located in Balagne, close to Calvi (8 min) and Ile Rousse (20 min). Calenzana is 10 min from the airport of Calvi and 1h30 from the international airport of Bastia.

Calenzana is located starting from the famous trekking pathway: GR20. At the bottom of the Monte Grosso, the village overhangs the Calvi bay and from the house you can enjoy magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea ahead and the mountains behind. Calenzana is a touristic village popular for its pleasant quality of life, beautiful corsican architecture, and rich cultural life: traditionnal restaurants and shops, classical music festival.

Calvi beaches are at 8 min drive. The house is very well located since you can enjoy all the services and shops of the village by walking while having the peace of a house facing the nature. Boat trip, sailing, bike rental, swimming in the rivers and rock climbing are available locally. Others favorite attractions include the hilltop villages of Balagne: Lumio, Montemaggiore, Pigna, Cateri and San Antonino.
