A charming apartment and location
This is a delightful modern apartment situated in a mountain top village that is full of character. We were met by a family member who showed us around the apartment and explained about the amenities in the village and nearby. The apartment had everything needed for our stay. The largest of the balconies has amazing views of the valley. Just captivating. Taking meals or just a coffee and watching birds of prey, red kites I think, patrolling over the landscape below us was amazing. We explored this area from Calvi to Bastia, and particularly enjoyed a day in Calvi and the scenic drive to Saint-Florence. Highly recommend this property and the service by the owners.Thank you very much for an unforgettable week.
Hilltop holiday .
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
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!
vieille maison de village très bien restaurée et meublée, spacieuse, confortable et bien équipée, avec une belle terrasse offrant une vue splendide sur la vallée, idéalement située pour accéder aux plus beaux sites de baignade en rivière et de randonnée (Asco, Restonica, santa Regina, cascade des anglais, cirque de Bonifatu, etc), belles promenades depuis le village, avec vue sur la vallée, plage sauvage à 20-25 minutes (Ostriconi).
En bas du village, une épicerie, une boulangerie artisanale (pains, sandwichs, salades, pâtisserie) de grande qualité, et la boutique de produits régionaux (charcuterie, fromage, miel, vin, etc) permettent de partir pour la journée avec tout ce qu’il faut pour les randonnées.
Merci à Louisa Straboni d’avoir partagé avec nous son amour de sa région et de son village. Ce village, cette maison ont une âme.
Sehr komfortable Wohnung im authentischen Umfeld
Die Wohnung fanden wir genauso vor wie wir sie uns anhand der vielen Bilder und der Beschreibung bei fewo-direkt vorgestellt hatten.
Groß genug für 4 Personen, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, viele Kleinigkeiten, die man im Urlaub benötigt waren vorhanden, sehr bequeme Betten...
und das alles weit ab von Touristensiedlungen inmitten einhei mischer Bevölkerung.
Die Vermieterin Louisa informierte im Vorfeld über viele Dinge des Urlaubsalltags, beantwortete sehr ausführlich viele Fragen über Bevölkerung und das Leben auf Korsika.
Wir kommen sehr gern wieder.
Ein herzliches Willkommen durch Louisa, ein wunderschönes Appartement; Wasser und Frühstückskekse standen bereit.
Jederzeit gerne wieder.
