A very unique and beautifully designed hotel. The collection of contemporary art in the rooms and public spaces was very special. Not only was the hotel beautiful but the owner Georges went so far out of his way to arrange beautiful lunches and dinners in unique locations along the beach and in little local farm to table restaurants. He happily... More

We arrived in Corsica to go to a wedding. A wonderful destination wedding and the destination was absolutely perfect for my wife and I. Wonderful mountain roads and beaches. Wonderful restaurants. U Palazzu Serena is a fabulous place to stay on top of a hill with magnificent views. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. They put together a... More

Just loved this hotel. Such a stylish and elegant fit out. Gorgeous spacious rooms. A really relaxed spot with amazing views and a breathtaking pool area. For a very relaxing and very quiet get away, couldn't recomend it more. You will of course need a car to get about. We thought the food at the hotel was just amazing and... More

Stayed 5 nights at this quaint little boutique hotel in Oletta, which is close to St. Florent and about 30 minutes from Bastia. Oletta is a small village and a nice quiet place away from the tourist hubs on Corsica. I booked a suite under their Escape Package which included breakfast, 2 dinners and massages. The suite itself was pretty... More

We ate at U Palazzu on our last night in Oletta. It was an amazing experience, the place was white and filled with works of art. The food was absolutely xcellent, my husband thought the best he had had anywhere - let alone Corsica. The only downside was that there was no parking at the restaurant, though there is parking...

small gem in the hills. All tastefully renovated with amazing art everywhere. The pool and grounds are small but on the other hand it feels like a private villa. My only complaint with the room was that there was only a tub and no shower.

Location is beautiful but pictures are all a bit deceiving, the view is open (and beautiful) only from the upper floors and from the outside dining corner, the hotel is situated in a cramped location. The whole garden is just the area between the hotel and the dining area, just the space for three large trees, no more than that,... More

You can find some nice hotels in Corsica, but with a correct price, beautiful house (old local palace), good restaurant with quite atmosphere and also selected products, nice view on the county and the sea : they have the "Plus" that other don't have.

We spent 10 days at U Palazzu Serenu & it was just perfect. The hotel is more like a large house than a hotel, so it feels intimate & relaxed. Beautiful decor, stylish & contemporary, and the best service from people who genuinely care that you are having a wonderful holiday. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a perfect... More
