Fantastic location for a mountain walking holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having read Nathan's and Jonathan's reviews before our trip we can confirm that they are both spot on. Claude is a star host; generous, helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. We really liked the rustic beauty of the area. The garden and sheltered 'outdoor room' have great views. The 'outdoor room' includes cooking facilities and is a perfect place to relax at the end of the day.

I couldn't have felt more at home

  • 5 of 5

Rather than duplicate, let me say that I emphatically second every point in Jonathan E.'s review -- I'll focus on rounding out the picture. First (and this does bear repetition), Claude Bernard really made the stay for me -- in too many ways to recount (bowls of cherries right off the tree, helping to wash my car, the inside scoop on hiking trails, ...) his hospitality went far beyond the norm. It helped me feel less like a tourist and more like a (short term, French-impaired) member of the community. For hikers, the location is perfect -- you're closer to the GR20 and the more exciting, higher altitude trails than you would be in Corte, for example. Day trips to the beach are perfectly feasible. While you'll probably have a car, the local grocery store (a five minute drive) also sends a food truck around the neighborhood mid-morning. It stops right on your doorstep and stocks a rather impressive fraction of the full store's inventory, if you're feeling lazy. Allow 1.5-2 hours to drive from Ajaccio -- google maps is occasionally over-optimistic about speeds on small mountain roads, and you won't want to rush the views!

Wonderful Stay, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Is Claude Bernard the best host in Corsica or indeed France? If you are lucky enough to find yourself his guest, maybe you can judge for yourself. The apartment is an excellent modernisation of the ground floor of a traditional Corsican house in a quiet village, south facing and with every convenience, two bathrooms and a top specification kitchen. Exclusive use of Claude's garden gives you panoramic views of the mountains and a wonderfully quiet place to relax. If you need a bit of life, its a short walk to the Bar Des Amis. This is a superb mountain retreat, with a charming and talented host who is generous to a fault - ideal for a one or two couples or a young family, with plenty of community spirit in the village too. We were sad to leave and are looking forward to our next visit to the house of the magnificent Msieur Bernard!

Ein wunderbarer Ort mit einem wunderbaren Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Zitamboli, ein nettes kleines Bergdoerfchen. Der Gastgeber Claude machte unseren Aufenthalt unvergesslich. Wir haben von ihm gute un nuetzliche Infos fuer Wandrungen bekommen, und haben die Laube im Garten sehr genossen, inklusive Tomaten und anderem Gemuese aus dem Garten. In Claude haben wir einen neuen Freund gefunden und wir wuerden gerne wieder hierher zurueck kommen.

Sehr erholsamer Urlaub mit baden im Fluß, wandern... in wunderschöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen fantastischen Urlaub bei Claude verbracht und uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir wurden mehr als herzlich aufgenommen und umsorgt. Claude gibt viele Tipps für Ausflüge und Unternehmungen und ist wirklich bei allem behilflich. Mit der Wohnung waren wir sehr zufrieden und den Aufenthalt im Garten haben wir sehr genossen. Morgens und abends haben wir dort gesessen und gegessen. Uns gefällt die ruhige, idyllische Lage und der tolle Blick auf die Berge . Wir kommen bestimmt wieder und freuen uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen! Ein großes Dankeschön nochmal an Claude für diesen wunderbaren Urlaub! Ganz liebe Grüße, Melanie und Erik

Fantastic location, host and view on the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful stay in Claude's house! The view from the house and the garden was majestic. The house was proper and had everything we could need. Claude is a very kind, concerned and sincere host who is always willing to help. He told us a lot about hiking trails in the area and even brought us to the start of one of them.

We couldn't think of a better place to spend our holiday in Corsica. I would recommend a stay at Claude's house to anyone! We hope te come back some time!
