Remember where you are and you won't be disappointed this is a small hotel in the very heart of Corsica surrounded by mountains, lakes, gorges and hiking trails. On the very edge of hiking to the highest point on the island. The hotel is easy to find and the hosts are very welcoming, Stella speaks very good English and Mathieu... More

Clean and nice rooms, food is tasty in the restaurant, lovely views on the surrounding mountains, we had a really relaxed stay here, have a drink in the shady garden and enjoy the silence and the clean air.

There is free unsecured parking in front of motel. We had a fairly pleasant check in but she seemed in a rush to leave us even though I had a few questions. We were shown to room 11, up a massive flight of stairs. Nice, bright, clean room with double glass doors leading to small balcony facing the parking lot... More

Travelling in October, choices of places to stay in Corsica are limited. This place was a satisfactory base for a couple of days walking in the fantastic mountain scenery. Our room at the front of the hotel was simple and clean, though the bed sagged with two people. Clean bathroom, but no way to attach the shower head, so impossible... More

Once of the quietest places we stayed on our trip in spite of young kids a couple rooms down. We had booked online months before and had given some preferences with our booking request. When we arrived our host walked us thru all the items that we had requested to make sure we were satisfied with the room. Based on... More

Went there with my wife on a motorcycling trip around Corsica. We stayed only one night but we had a good experience, everything is nice about the hotel. They also offered us to park the motorcycle on the back just under our window. The overall surroundings are very nice if you like mountain and wilderness. As other reviewer have said,... More

This family-run, two star hotel truly has its act together. Every detail is right, from the immaculate flower-fringed driveway to the rooms, each with a individual balcony with flower basket and great view of the mountains. It's clean, it's comfortable and it is located on perhaps the most spectacular drive in Corsica from Corte to Evisa - and at 65... More

This is why we stay at 2 star properties. This one is family owned/operated & spotlessly clean. Basic rooms, but all you need & in a spectacularly scenic area. Four generations when we checked in - grandfather/grandmother, mother/father, son/daughter & grandchild were in the lobby with a fire in the fireplace. What is not to enjoy about this atmosphere?

This is a must stay for Corsica. Situated on one of the must do road trips ( we were on motorbike) from Portu in West to Corte in Centre. The gorges are unforgettable. This hotel is truly a gem. If you are a hiker, it is a premier spot. If you, like us, just like peace and beauty then its... More

We stayed here for two nights while walking with Sherpa Expeditions. The hotel is at the top of the town and doubles up as a petrol station and local meeting place in the bar. It was really clean with really pretty rooms with balconies overlooking those wonderful mountains. Breakfast was served on a lovely outside terrace- again lovely views. Peronally... More
