“Enchanted by Corsica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2006

Just returned from a 2/52 holiday with CrystalActive at Capicciolo, near Propriano. I travelled with my husband & 2 children (under 10)

The resort. 16 hillside villas overlooking a beautifal sandy bay. The accommodation is simple, no AC but clean & comfortable with decent showers & good size fridges. Lovely views. The resort is very well managed. The rep has a good local knowledge & booked us into some lovely local restaurants (incidently recommending the same ones as The Lonely Planet guide). The local baker visits every morning bringing a tempting selection of breads & pastries for breakfast. Only the on site restaurant was a let-down, the food was fine but the service incredibly slow. In august it was mostly families with school aged children.

Watersports. Sailing, windsurfing, kayaks, beach volleyball, mountain bikes & yoga are included in the price. The standard of tuition is high & the lovely team are incredibly patient & enthusiastic whatever standard you meet. Parents are encouraged to take lessons with their children, which is enormous fun, if rather shaming on occasion.

Childcare. my children attended the childrens club a couple of times in the day & also 2 evening events. The nannies are great fun & got them involved in all sorts of things as well as taking them to the watersports guys.

The area. Despite having a car we only saw a small area of SW Corsica. It really is beautiful, with enormous granite mountains & small sandy coves. I recommend Cupabia & Camporomoro for beaches and Sartene & Olmeto for mountain villages.

The food. I don't think we've ever eaten so well on holiday. We tended to eat on our terrace for lunch. The Casino supermarket in Propriano was a nightmare (so busy) but the standard of food, particularly fruit & veg, much higher than in the UK. The villas all have BBQs which is a lovely way to spend the evening after all the activity. We did have some memorable meals out- particularly Chez Mimi (Olmeto), Chez Charlot (Viggianello) and The Abbartello restaurant.

To summarize. I think we've found the perfect holiday for a family who like activites, good food & beautiful scenery.
