My boyfriend and I stayed at E Catarelle for one night together with friends and we all enjoyed it immensely. The hotel seems to be in another world, far, far away from everything, perched on a mountain above the east coast of Corsica, with fanstastic views over chestnut forests and tiny hamlets and the blue, blue sea. It is an unconventional place; no anonymous hotel, but rather like you'd stay with good friends - which does not mean that E Catarelle woudn't meet hotel standards, which it certainly does. The rooms are sweet and impeccably clean, and Maddy is the most charming host if you just relax, adapt to the rules and pace of the place and enjoy what she has to offer. So leave everything behind, enjoy the tranquility of the mountains, relax on the terrace, watch the birds feed their little ones in the nest on top of the loudspeeker, go for a walk, have a chat with Maddy or just watch the ships pass by way, way below.... and don't miss the great corsican feast that Maddy will gladly prepare for dinner if you'll ask her. Maddys motto is quality, not quantity, so all this doesn't come cheap. But prices are fair, and you really get something special for your money. If you love nature and a family atmosphere, we can highly recommend le Belvedere d'E Catarelle.
