Our hosts were wonderfull. Good B&B, very quiet and relaxing.
Rooms are surprising but very comfortable
Breakfeast excellent and dinner on demand.
In the middle of a small village of 60 persons.

If you want to visit the east north part of Corsica , this is the place

Prices are 70 to 80€ in Septembre

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

We have a couple more nights to go before leaving the welcoming fold of Maison Borghetti after a 7 night stay. I'm already starting to feel sad about leaving Patrick and Brian!

Set in the beautiful quiet hill town of Talasani, north eastern Corsica, Maison Borghetti is simple and beautiful, welcoming and heart warming. Patrick and Brian (and of course Kika) have created a place of tranquility which feels like staying with family (family on a good day that is!). We are light sleepers but have already had to set our alarms to wake in the mornings, we seem to slump into bed and just sleep. Heaven.

The rooms - we had Chambre Vincent Lafon with a beautiful claw foot bath and separate shower, candles everywhere and an open fire in the winter - are decorated with the panache of Patrick who has thought out every corner and the eclectic antiques work together so well, a very gifted man as he does the relief / fresco paint work on the walls and ceilings as well as the cooking.

Which brings me on to the cooking....breakfasts are perfect, good coffee (or tea I'm sure), fresh breads and home made preserves, quality ham and cheeses, home made berry compote with cereal and home made yoghurt made for the best start to the day. The evening meals hosted by Patrick and Brian are again superb. We have 2 more to enjoy before our departure but so far they have been nothing short of a fabulous night. Hosting 4 nights per week in the summer months, meals are taken communally for those who choose this option (and an option I'd highly recommend). The food is great, fresh, light, local with the most sublime desserts (and lots of food - for those who want more there will never be a shortage here) all cooked by Patrick with love, care and skill. Presented family style so you can help yourselves but eaten together at a large table. A place for guests and hosts to mingle and chat. For the nights that the kitchen is closed the food at the local restaurants is good. I would particularly recommend the pizza restaurant at Moriani Plage which is an easy drive away.

The location of Maison Borghetti is awesome. You can go north, south, east - there's many options for great day trips. Beautiful beaches are within close reach. Patrick and Brian have a good set of maps and will give recommendations of where to go which have so far been spot on for us.

And value???....ummmmm lets just say it's incredible value here. The dinner evenings are 27.5E pp including aperitif, wine, food, digestive, coffee...yes you get my drift. The rooms are exceptionally priced and if you do come here I have no doubt you'll enjoy your stay. Just make sure you book early as they only have 3 rooms. Also if you have the time give yourself a treat and stay long enough to enable the state of complete relaxation to seep into your soul.

Maison Borghetti is a charmer. Thank you Patrick and Brian, we will leave with warmth our hearts and the feeling of the world being a better place because of you in it.

Well proportioned rooms, eclectic furnishings, huge bathroom with wonderful roll-top bath and separate shower. In short, well styled and very comfortable. The friendly and welcoming hosts were extremely knowledgeable about the island, recommending places the guide books didn't mention and provided detailed maps to get them. As the food was so good, we took advantage of every evening meal on offer!
Highly recommended.

We stayed in Maison Borghetti for the second time already after we fell in love with the place during our first stay a little more than one year earlier. We were not disappointed! The two hosts, Patrick and Brian, are extremely good hosts, and their table d'hotes dinners are always a strong recommendation. The food is very good, the place for dinner in this old Corsican mansion is fascinating, and the conversations with other guests usually really interesting.

It is the perfect place to discover the East side of Corsica from, especially worthwhile if you like hiking. However, this is not the place to hang out all day long! (There would be only your room and the lovely but petit garden.) The hosts have excellent hints to give for insider trips in the East and North of Corsica, so we were never short things to do. You have to have a car though, you probably couldn't even get there any other way.

In other words, this is a strong recommendation if you are looking for an authentic chambre d'hotes in Corsica!!!

The room was very flamboyant and somewhere between art gallery and an antique store. I am sure lots of people love it but we found it a little cluttered and rather dark.
We stayed in the Summer and it was very hot and also rather humid compared to other areas and hotels on the island.
We also found there to be a lot of mosquitos which managed to get through the fly screens and had a voracious appetite.

Talasani is a small Corsican town with this wonderful B&B. A unique opportunity to experience rural hilltop Coriscan living. This building (which is like a 4 story 16th stone building) has been so beautifully restored to look as I'm sure it did in the 16th century. The washroom facilities were very modern, the bed was comfortable and our room had a unique art deco feeling to it. We were on the ground floor and found it a bit dark, but we opened the shutters and it made a big difference. The breakfast was freshly and carefully prepared and very delicious. A real gem.

This old corsican house with an interesting history of its own has been beautifully restored and furnished by its current owners. The rooms all have generous bathrooms and antique furniture while the village itself is everthing you imagine of corsica: stunning views, fantastic walks and easy access to clear clean beaches. Highly recommend the evening meals (available 3/4 nights a week) - Patrick is an outstanding chef and he, Kika and Brian are the perfect hosts. We enjoyed three evenings packed with wine, food and very jolly company. Simply cannot praise this place highly enough. Awesome.
