Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful and relaxing holiday in this very comfortable villa. It is one of the cleanest and well equipped places we have stayed in. The garden and pool are in a fantastic setting. The owner was very helpful and we would have no hesitation in returning there again.

Wir verbrachten zwei wunderschöne Wochen auf Korsika.

Das Haus, der Pool und der Garten einfach traumhaft. Es war alles sehr sauber und die Ausstattung perfekt. Marie war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir können dieses Feriendomizil uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Very beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 beautiful weeks with the whole family at this villa. Enough space for 10 people. Very nice building with full equipment including weber gas grill for BBQ. Arrive and feel at home. Perfect cleaning service after one week of stay. High quality electrical appliances, e.g. washing machine, dish washer. Nice contact to Marie-Line. Close to Porto Vecchio (Geant supermarket) and beautiful Bonifacio. Perfect to visit beaches including Palombaggia, go hiking, climbing and nevertheless swimming in rivers (e.g. Osu just nearby). We are planning to come back.

Wir haben 2 wunderschöne Wochen mit der ganzen Familie in dieser Villa verbracht. Genug Platz für 10 Personen. Sehr schönes Gebäude mit kompletter Ausstattung inkl. Weber Gasgrill. Ankommen und zu Hause fühlen. Reinigung des gesamten Gebäudes nach einer Woche Aufenthalt. Hochwertige Elektrogeräte, wie z.B. Wasch-/ und Geschirrspülmaschine. Netter Kontakt zu Marie-Line. Nahe bei Porto Vecchio (Geant Supermarkt) und Bonifacio. Sehr gute Lage um Strände wie z.B. Palombaggia zu besuchen, Wandern, Klettern und nicht zuletzt sehr schöne Flußbademöglichkeiten (am Osu) in der Nähe. Wir planen einen weiteren Urlaub in dieser Villa.

An fantastic villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in June in this fantastic villa in Corsica and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The specification was high and we had everything to hand that you could possibly want with young children. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful with plenty of useful tips.

The location is great close to some stunning beaches and the beautiful town of Porto Vecciho. It is also only about 40 minutes drive away from beautiful national parks with breathtaking views.

I would recommend this accommodation and location to anyone

To describe this villa as stunning would be an understatement, it encompasses everything you could ever wish for in Mediterranean villa. Set within its own grounds, in a very peaceful location surrounded by a backdrop of woodland and stunning mountains, this villa is perfectly located for further exploration of this beautiful island. We can honestly say that upon arrival at the villa we were totally speechless - it is simply paradise!

Alongside this, the wonderful and extremely friendly owner, Marie-Line, was available but not intrusive and could not have not been more accommodating.

The only downside with the villa is the day you have to leave!

Thank you Marie-Line for allowing those of us who suffer with having to live in England (particularly the weather, oh and the government, oh and the traffic jams, oh and the economy.....oh and the....!) to enjoy the unique and captivating Corsican style of life!!

Corsica a go-go

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this villa. There were 4 adults and 3 children in our party and the accomodation was perfect. Biggest plus was the air conditioning which in 90 degree heat is a blessing. Villa was extremely well stocked with everything a family would need - crockery, pots n pans, washer/dryer, dishwasher, tables and chairs both inside and outside. Lovely kitchen area. Also has a device to play ipods through in main lounge area. Outside seating / patios are a delights and again welcome respite from the sun. The house is safe and has electric stell shutters that completely seals in. Pool is fabulous and safe enough for kids i.e. fenced off so that young kids couln't access without parents knowledge. Pool is deep in parts (6.5ft) and also has great lights so midnight swimming is a must!! Villa is very clean and owner sends in team of cleaners each week so if you stay for a fortnight you get a mid vacation clean as well. location is fabulous being around 3 miles from centre of porto vechio, however there are 2 very decent local shops at about 0.5 miles. Would reccomend you hire a car for this holiday though - there's too much to explore in south Corsica. If you're looking for beaches this area has them in abundance - pick of the best for young kids are Santa Guilia to the south and Pinarellu to the north both about 15 mins drive away. Property is also very close to moutain area - you can get to about 3,000 ft at L'Ospidale in in about 25 mins drive. Great holiday with a very helpful and welcoming villa owner ! We'll definitely come again!!
