My husband and I stayed here for a week and it was a really memorable holiday.
Brian and Patrick make you feel welcome and they are both so knowledgeable about the history of the local area and what to do and where to go.
We walked miles through the hills of Corsica wading through herds of goats and pigs to get to deserted villages where time has literally stood still. Brian very kindly lent us his OS maps.
Patrick cooks wonderful food and there is always a jolly atmosphere around the table in the evenings. The breakfasts were great too, with lots of different types of bread, cheeses, ham, granola, yogurts and fresh fruit .
Our huge room was amazing, with an eclectic collection of old books, lots of fascinating artwork, antique furniture and a really comfy bed and powerful shower.
