Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tinarella, it was perfect for our needs. Corsica is a very pretty island and certainly lives up to its name. The villa was very well equipped and comfortable, it was a treat to return there after a busy day, to sit and enjoy a drink on the terrace and look out over the bay. I am missing it already. There are many other places that we would love to have visited but a week was just not long enough!

We thank you again for the use of the villa and look forward to returning again soon.

A top week in Corsica

  • 5 of 5

This was a magical week away. The villa was exactly as described and has clearly been well maintained for guests' benefit

It is a fabulous base to explore all the different local beaches as well as the mountains that provide such a grand backdrop.We followed the advice of a previous reviewer and went to Chez Paul, a restaurant up in the mountains serving real Corsican fare. Well recommended.

I don't know about the rest, but this part of Corsica is unspoilt, and the villa made for a great week.

Thank you Diana.

Tranquil Tinarella

  • 3 of 5

This was our seventh trip to Tinarella which says it all. A well positioned villa within hearing distance of waves on the beach below and easy reach of daily shopping, restaurants and clean, quiet beaches. We have already booked for next year.

Wonderful holiday - Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tinarella lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The location, facilities and service were excellent. Everything as expected and more. We enjoyed trips into Ajaccio and Bonifacio particularly Ajaccio using the ferry from Porticcio.

Excellent beaches all round we enjoyed snorkeling the water so warm and clear.. Local facilities are excellent - butchers and bakers as outlined by Diana are first class. We found the standard of food very good and particularly enjoyed La Rivoli -walking distance form the villa and Da Mamma in Ajaccio the charcuterie in particular. All in all can't wait to go back

Our visit to Corsica

  • 5 of 5

We spent 21 nights at this villa as a retirement treat

The villa was beautiful and all the information from Diana was accurate and easy to follow.

We had ten days cycling in the local area climbing 15000 metres and we where not disappointed,the mountain villages where stunning.

Everything about the holiday was positive but be warned that the temperatures are extremely hot in June and July so if you are cycling be prepared.

Thank you Diana and we hope to return in the future

Corsica charms visitors with its glorious countryside and coastline and has avoided being spoilt by mass tourism. Ideal for "off-season" holidays, it offers relaxation and sunshine in abundance. Ideal for independent travellers who may enjoy walking and exploring or for sun worshippers who want to lie out on the nearby beaches or just relax on the terrace. Corsica is a hikers and cyclists paradise with plenty of trails and climbs to challenge and reward!
