We were in Corsica for 5 nights and decided to stay outside Calvi in Calenzana. The property is just off the main street in Calenzana and has charmingly decorated rooms and bathrooms. The common space which includes dining and living areas is very charming with beautiful views across the valley to the sea. There is a small outdoor pool and a very friendly dog "Ally"
The hosts Belenger and Gil are very busy young people who have just had twins, but manage to keep their guests happy and the rooms clean and tidy. There is a communal kitchen with fridge, freezer and tea and coffee makers, with a supply of local cookies on hand all the time.
Breakfast was very basic, consisting of yogurt , local cookies, and baguette with a wide variety of delicious home made jams. There was always a sugary cereal available for our kids. It would have been nice to have some fresh fruit, cheeses and hardboiled eggs on some days.
Other than the monotony of the breakfasts, the only other criticism I have is that there was nowhere to hang wet towels and bathing suits - we had to drape them over the communal balcony.
We were glad we stayed outside of Calvi as we liked the quiet town and also enjoyed the restaurant Chez Michel many times. It's truly excellent and great value too. We would definitely stay at this B&B again if we ever return to this part of Corsica.
