Our main reason for choosing a pignata was for the food, and while the food was delightful, the other aspects were lovely as well. I travel a lot (Corsica thrice), and have stayed in numerous B&Bs. A pignata was overall a good value and I would return.
The first night, we arrive at 9pm and though the staff was a bit annoyed, they still served us all courses and did not rush us at all. Later during our stay, we realized that it's not the the staff was annoyed, they are just wanted us to be able to enjoy the meal the way it was intended.
The second night, one of the staff members, Sirine from Romania, hung out with us after dinner and explained a lot about the food, the birds, and even gave us a tour of the kitchen, which he was quite proud of. It's a good sign when the staff is dedicated and proud of their work.
The breakfast was fine, like other reviews mention typical French. In our case, two mornings in a row we didn't make it to breakfast but the staff ended up putting out two portions of breakfast for us at a table, letting us know it was there when ever we felt like eating it. Very thoughtful and unexpected.
The pool is lovely, but the hammam only open for a few hours which was strange (we still went in after hours and it was still very hot).
The roses smelled so sweet and the air as fresh as fresh can be. I would definitely return. However, this is not a place I'd bring children to.
