We stayed in the Philonios I room a few nights ago and it was wonderful. I think this room has the best view of the mountains. While it is the oldest room on the property, it was very quiet and we didn't find any problems with it. The owner is a very nice man who is available to meet any... More

Beautifully appointed "cabins" in a beautiful setting a short drive from Corte. The owners clearly put a lot of thought into designing and furnishing their property--and it shows. The breakfast, served on each cabin's terrace at a time of each guest's choosing, is particularly special. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Others have noted that the property can be tricky...

We were travelling with a tandem bike in Corsica and stayed here for a night. Wish we could stay more. Hotel is located in a very nice village, the dinner and breakfast were rich and the room was really comfortable. The owner is a kind person and he speaks English very well, which may be very important in Corsica for... More

Booked this place the same morning and arrived very late - finding was very easy since we just followed the clear signs once we entered Riventosa - on the way in we needed to drive down a steep hill, but since I read about it in previous reviews I was prepared. The owner is really nice, speaks excellent English and... More

As another reviewer has stated, yes it is a bit difficult to find and could do with a bit better signage but it is well worth the effort. If you get lost just ask at the local bar next to the boules pitch. The locals are very friendly but don't expect them to speak at you in perfect English. Have... More

We spent 3 nights at the Villa Praesidio in Riventosa. It is about 7 miles south of Corte and just a short distance off the main road-a good base for exploring the nearby mountains. It isn’t easy to find and ….‘s instructions in post….. are spot on and saved us a lot of bother. Park in the car park by... More

A warm professional welcome from the owner, cosy room and lovely breakfast. Great value for money! The room was a bit tiny that we had to leave our luggages in the car.

Quaint cottages with in room cooking facilities. Excellent breakfast. Unique accomodation in separate little stone faced cottages. Great shower area, with room to move. Nice little balcony. Needs better directions as we visited most of towns in the area and were about to give up anf forfeit cost when found. Directions required. Drive into Riventosa from highway, on entry to... More

A very quiet and pleasant place made of 4 lovely and spacious local stone-style cottages in the green, with majestic view of the nearby mountains. Location is superb, attached to the characteristic Riventosa village but at the same time quiet and insulated, in a terraced sloping wood, probably used as terraced cultivation fields in the old times. The cottages are... More

The room we booked is the only one of it's kind, the others are Gites. Only breakfast is served and it is served on your own balcony. Excellent croissants and pain au chocolat and natural yoghurts. My husband said the coffee was very good and I had Earl Grey tea which I love. A small room, newly built in a... More
