“Very good stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We enjoyed a lot our villa at the U Pirellu Residence. Very clean and confortable, with an amazing view. It's on the road to the main beach at Porto Vecchio, Palombaggia. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they will probably recommend you a pizzaria 5k from there, and you should definitely check it out. There is a ping pong table and a tennis court available for the guests. The breakfast is a little bit too basic for the price, but still good.

We stayed here early June, so before the peak season, which may account for the positive experience! The owners were very welcoming and friendly, ready to help (for example to go to the supermarket the following morning to buy a highchair as they didn't have one available). It is true though that if you arrive in the evening everything is closed and there is no-one on reception. But this is a minor detail.
The grounds are well kept, the pool is beautiful. The villas (we had a 55m2 one) are extremely clean and quite nicely furnished. The kitchen is quite basic though, no oven for example and BBQs are forbidden on windy days, which is quite often in Corsica! Also be aware that you need to bring or buy everything, there is not even a bar of soap on arrival. The children's play area is nice, although perhaps not up to safety standards (rocks underneath the climbing frame for example). Another minor complaint is that access to the pool is only from 8.30am and it would have been nice to have been able to go for an early morning swim before the children woke up!
The location is excellent, a 10 minute drive from Porto Vecchio and 10 minutes to the fantastic beaches. Go early though! The pizzeria next door is excellent too.
