A fabulous week of permanent sunshine, sheer relaxation and memorable evenings on the terrace. The villa was beautifully furnished and provided everything we needed.The pool was heated, which made it possible for us to swim in the evening
The loctation was idyllic - within walking distance of local amenities, yet rural, private and secluded, but the nicest aspect of this family style villa is the sense of peace, privacy and relaxation you get as soon as you arrive, sitting out having breakfast on the glorious terrace and enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The hosts have put together a fantastic guide book with lots of ideas for places to visit and local restaurants
Wonderful location near the picturesque village of Calenzana in the foothills of the mountains with great views but only a few minutes from the beach at Calvi. After touring all the area of La Balagne we thought this one of the best locations. The stone architecture, huge bedrooms, heated pool and lovely gardens all contribute to a sublime experience.The house is beautifully finished and was clean and well-equipped with excellent kitchen facilities, perfect for self-catering.
We also used the BBQ and sat out on the terrace to eat most nights. The people in the village were very friendly, the lady in the small grocer shop opposite the bar arranged for the breadvan to stop outside the gate of the villa every morning on its way into the village so we got first choice of the crossiants delivered to our door. The region is very scenic and unspoilt "like the Cote D'Azur 50 years ago" and perfect for walking, climbing, picnics and swimming. We were a party of 3 couples and a child, will and would love to have this holiday all over again. Impressed with the area of corsica (amazing natural beauty) and the house.
location: stunning views, about 15min drive from the very touristy Calvi. Technically on the edge of a small town which has a few shops for necessities. Great spot to do a morning trip into calvi or beach for a few hours, then retreat in the heat of the day to fabulous air-con and sensational pool. The view of the mountains is not done justice in the photos. Breathtaking. The place itself it lovely, finished to a high level. Owners are very helpful and relaxed and have great suggestions on what to do and see (the rock pool swimming is a must!). We had friends staying in a townhouse in Calvi which was more expensive and nowhere near as good. If you need to be in the heart of things then perhaps Calvi is the way to go - but if you want to relax in a far more beautiful spot a simple drive away this is it!
This is a wonderful house in a great location! The house itself is top quality, clean and is well-equipped with all the modern accessories we could want. The heated pool was kept warm for us, even in the cool days of late March when we were there. The view from the home really is amazing especially while sitting at the table on the terrace having dinner and enjoying the local wine.
Location and surroundings were ideal. On the one hand we had tall mountains close by and on the other there were nice beaches a short drive away. Then there are all of the small villages nearby to visit and admire the architecture. Calvi is only a 15 minute drive away for larger grocery stores and tourist activities.
We travelled with a young child (1 yr) and found the property suitable for our needs.
The owners were very helpful, friendly and provided loads of useful information about the area! We also can't say enough about the friendliness of the local Corsicans in the area - from the waiter & Chef at a local restaurant to the nearby village doctor who attended to our young child. The locals made every effort to help us and make us feel welcome, even though our French was not the best!
We stayed for a week in October and were impressed by the beautiful house and swimming pool, with everything being spotless clean and well prepared when we arrived.The location at the top of a hill is private and quiet, and affords really spectacular views. The owners are extremely friendly, discrete and helpful and the house is taken care of with love. This was our first trip to beautiful Corsica and we were delighted by everything the Island has to offer - fantastic food, lovely people, great weather, stunning countryside and beaches.
We highly recommend
Séjour très réussi dans un cadre et un environnement paradisiaques.
Maison idyllique, spacieuse, située dans un écrin de verdure, calme avec une vue exceptionnelle, on ne s'en lasse pas.
Semaine trop courte, ils nous restent beaucoup d'endroits à visiter.
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
