Saddly, we only stayed there for one night! The owner is really kind and he is the one who furnitured and designed the whole place! At the arrival, he explained some small stories about why he designed the room that way which also included a small kitchen. Always interesting to hear ^^ The road to there might be a bit... More

Great room. Beds are really good. Breakfast served in front of the room. Not huge but enough for us. Nice location and close to Corte and mountains. Definitely would go there again. Owner is a nice guy. Speaks fluently english.

A wonderful place to spend a few nights, with a great host in Cyril. Breakfast on your own little terrace is a nice touch. The rooms are really nice inside, and have everything you need, including a kitchenette. Parking is not a problem as suggested in some reviews - simply unload in his small paring area, and then park 100... More

Located in the tiny, tiny village Riverstora (just drive down the road after or before the café in the middle of the village, at the D40). Different small chalets in the green with free (rather small) parking and good functioning WIFI. Our nice room in warm colors had a comfy 180 bed, a single bed which could also serve as... More

The accommodation is a short drive away from Corte but was quite difficult to find, but once we arrived there it was a good experience. The village Riventosa is very picturesque and the accomodation is in a lovely setting. Its effectively like a cabin, and had a warm and cosy setting - the guy who owns the place Cedric was... More

We stayed in the Philonios I room a few nights ago and it was wonderful. I think this room has the best view of the mountains. While it is the oldest room on the property, it was very quiet and we didn't find any problems with it. The owner is a very nice man who is available to meet any... More

Beautifully appointed "cabins" in a beautiful setting a short drive from Corte. The owners clearly put a lot of thought into designing and furnishing their property--and it shows. The breakfast, served on each cabin's terrace at a time of each guest's choosing, is particularly special. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Others have noted that the property can be tricky...

We were travelling with a tandem bike in Corsica and stayed here for a night. Wish we could stay more. Hotel is located in a very nice village, the dinner and breakfast were rich and the room was really comfortable. The owner is a kind person and he speaks English very well, which may be very important in Corsica for... More

Booked this place the same morning and arrived very late - finding was very easy since we just followed the clear signs once we entered Riventosa - on the way in we needed to drive down a steep hill, but since I read about it in previous reviews I was prepared. The owner is really nice, speaks excellent English and... More
