We had the most wonderful stay at this property. The location is peaceful, with wonderful views - and we particularly enjoyed walking along the footpath to Lama (a gorgeous, crumbly stone town nearby) for pizza in the square. The nearby beach is also beautiful. We would highly recommend staying here - the property is perfect, and we hope to visit again.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa and it's gardens are truly beautiful, the property also has a vast vegetable patch that Emmanuelle encouraged us to use - along with grape vines, fig trees and other wonderful fruits!

Urtaca is the perfect place to recharge your batteries and relax. A car is essential to visit the surrounding towns and beautiful beaches.

Emmanuelle was a delight and couldn't have been more helpful when it came to recommendations regarding the surrounding area.

We would definitely recommend!

Amazing villa and attentive/friendly host

We had a fantastic holiday here! The villa was clean and very well presented. In particular the pool area was fantastic and felt so secluded.

Emmanuelle was a great host. Very attentive and friendly.

We would highly recommend this place

Superb house in magical location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay . The house, which was beautifully decorated, was in the most magical, unspoilt setting. Conveniently located by car, we had a glorious week in the Corsican sunshine. The swimming pool was idyllic and we had all our meals al fresco under the vine covered pergola overlooking the mountains with spectacular views all around us. The hosts were both incredibly friendly, charming and informative. There is a local boulangerie and specialist veal farm in the village. Beautiful beaches can be reached in under thirty minutes. The bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely comfortable, air-conditioned and luxurious. We even got to enjoy fruits and vegetables from the garden.

We couldn't have asked for more and look forward to returning some time very soon.

Peaceful, well maintained, charming

  • 5 of 5

Emmauelle couldn't have been more accommodating or helpful. The property was clean and well equipped in a lovely quiet village. The pool area was lovely to sit and read, swim and just relax. I would definitely recommend the property to fiends and if we ever go to Corsica again on holiday we just might stay here again.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house furnished in traditional style and surrounded by gardens. Romantic, quiet and relaxing. It's located in a picturesque village of Urtaca, close to mountain hiking paths, Ostriconi beach and L'Ile Rousse. Daily bread and pastries deliveries from local bakery were very nice and tasty. We really enjoyed dining in I Salti restaurant in Speloncato. Owner is very charming and helpful.
