Hilltop holiday .

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautifully appointed apartment in Pietralba. The owner and her brother met us and were very friendly and welcoming. We had a lot of useful and helpful information from them about the village and Corsica in general. Calvi, Ille de Rousse and the beautiful town of St Florent are all within easy driving distance. The house itself is very up to date although the building itself is very old with stacks of character. The panoramic view from the sunny veranda of the valley below is breath taking. A great centre if you are keen walker and not far from beautiful beaches further west.As Pietralba is an ancient hilltop village its roads are very narrow and steep, so take a small car. Highly recommended.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were bowled over by the location of this house. Situated in a mountain village it is surrounded by the most incredible scenery. The arrival instructions were very well organised and Louisa and her family are extremely friendly and helpful. The house is as described on the website and is clean and very well appointed. Everyone in Pietralba is very friendly and welcoming. We spent a very enjoyable evening at the pizzeria in the village and and there is an excellent bakers at the entrance to the village which we walked to every morning for our bread and a coffee. With the option of two terraces you can spend your whole day observing village life! The house is perfectly situated for exploring the La Balagne region. We visited the beach at L'Ostriconi, L'ile Rousse, Calvi and Bastia during our weeks stay and after a long (and hot!) day of sightseeing we were happy to return to the peace and tranquility of this little village house. It really felt like being at home. We will certainly be going back!

Sowohl im Haus als auch in dem beschaulichen Bergdörfchen Pietralba haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Strände und Bergtäler mit Möglichkeiten zu Wanderung oder Flußwanderung/Badestellen sind mit PKW gut erreichbar. Großer Supermarkt in Ponte Lecchia. Besonders toll war der Hiking Trail zur Bocca di Tenda in unmittelbarer Nähe der Wohnung.

Unerwartete Oase

  • 5 of 5

In dem unscheinbaren Bergdorf Petralba befindet sich im ältesten Haus des Dorfes ein nach jeder Kunst der französischen Architektur renoviertes und geschmackvoll ausgestattetes Apartment , das sich über zwei Ebenen erstreckt und mit drei Terrassen ausgestattet ist. Die schönste öffnet sich in Richtung Süd und bietet einen atemberaubenden Blick zu jeder Tageszeit auf die Berge und ins Tal. Die Wohnung ist darüber hinaus außergewöhnlich komplett ausgestattet (Waschmaschine, Geschirrspüler, Klimaanlage, Nespressomaschine, Toaster und Mikrowelle) - ein Kompliment an die äußerst sympathische Vermieterin Louisa Straboni!

Das Apartment liegt ca 15 Autominuten vom Strand Ostriconi entfernt. Der Strand ist in einem folgenden 10 minütigen Fußmarsch zu erreichen. Der Strand ist naturbelassen aber von Rettungsschwimmern überwacht. Wer die Berg liebt, kann direkt vom Apartment aus wunderbare Bergwanderungen in verschiedene Richtungen antreten.

Auch kulinarisch kommt der Gast auf seine Rechnung - sei es in der einzigen Pizzeria im Ort oder in der Boulangerie an der Ortsausfahrt.

Bemerkenswert ist auch die Freundlichkeit und Gelassenheit der Dorfbewohner. Unsere Kinder liebten es, das Dorf zu erkunden.

Was jedoch gefragt ist: ein wendiges, nicht zu großes Fahrzeug und Kenntnisse im Bergfahren.

Environnent dépaysant et reposant...

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très confortable dans un charmant village. Sa position centrale permet de rayonner facilement tant vers les belles plages du desert des Agriates que vers la rivière. ..avec une préférence pour la vallée de la Restonica.

La propriétaire est prévenante et nous transmet l'attachement qu'elle porte à son village. Les voisins sont très sympathiques. ..merveilleuse semaine à Pietralba.

The house was extremely clean and very well equipped. The brother was very kind and gave valuable hints were to buy food and where to go.

All in all we were very very satisfied, spent a wonderful week and will return.
