Realtors are always saying it's the location that counts. This apartment is right in the heart of downtown with fast access to everything that counts. It is also the only apartment I could find with a separate bedroom. The facilities are nice, but the bathroom has a floor of pebbles, which after a day of tromping around Calvi on the cobbled streets, is not welcome. The area is noisy which can be alleviated at night by closing everything up and turning on the a/c. We preferred to leave all the windows open for the breeze and only needed the a/c our last night. All the appliances worked well but the kitchen lacks a cheese grater and lids for the pots. Perhaps others do not need these items? After 27 years of international travel I have never had to pay a separate fee for linens, until I rented this facility. IMO, the owner should incorporate this fee into the total rental price. Maybe the French are used to bringing their linens with them on vacation? I don't know, but for sure I'm not dragging linens all the way from the USA! I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone and as each day passed I appreciated it even more.

The beach on the other side of the bay appears as if it is far away. It's not, a quick walk and you are there. I do not recommend taking the ferry to Ajaccio. It's expensive and Ajaccio now has cruise boats calling which has dumbed down the town to accommodate the tourist trade. If you must see Napolean's house and museum then by all means go. If you are a photographer you do need to take the ferry to the place that starts with an "S" (sorry can't remember the name) which goes a bit past Piana, about half way to Ajaccio. The sea caves and rock formations are well worth the trip.

We got most of our groceries at Spar, but be warned one of the checkout clerks charged us more for certain items and said there was a 20 Euro minimum for credit cards than did another clerk who accepted cards for any amount. Annie's is another good place for prepared foods and wine. One drawback of Annie's is that the place reeks of all the pork products hanging from the ceiling.

Almost all the restaurants serve the same items. We liked Palmers on the waterfront and Aux Marines. Prices vary considerably. Emile's looked promising but hadn't opened for the season yet.

I would say the pictures of the apartment shown on this page are very accurate. And remember: location, location, location.

Fantastisch

  • 5 of 5

Für uns war die Unterkunft perfekt und noch schöner als auf den Bildern.

Es war alles vorhanden, was man beötigt. Die Lage ist super, das Bett war sehr bequem und das Apartment ist sehr hell und freundlich. Die Aussicht vom Balkon konnte man jeden Tag aufs Neue genießen. Der perfekte Rückzugsort - ganz ungestört. Ich finde den Kieselsteinboden im Bad übrigens sehr schön. Zur Begrüßung stand schon eine Flasche Wein auf dem Küchentisch, vielen Dank dafür.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr zu empfehlen!
