I had difficulty deciding on which of the homes to rent for a week in September. I wasn't very satisfied with the initial house I was given (the house was super but no grass in the yard and the two lounge chairs had little room). Fortunately another house was available and Marc was very accommodating by letting us have it. The house is clean and you even had some basic food items so that you don't have to find anything on your arrival day. That was really great!
My only negative was the presence of rather large mice. One just came running in front of mean evening! I'm sure that this was no news to the owner who had traps available. Two of the mice did get caught. We had to place all our food inside a big pot with a cover so the mice did not ruin the food. I know that this house is in the country but there should be an attempt to close whatever entrance holes exist.
The location of the house is very convenient to the beach (walking distance of 10 minutes). The pool is beautiful.
We had been astonished about the beautiful gardens and how perfect the villa was equipped. Everything was there: open air shower, air-condition, dishwasher, washing maschine, gas barbecue, gas stove, sat-tv, dvd-player, ironing board, vacuum cleaner, and so on. Everything was in a very good condition. And well furnished. The renter of the house was really helpful and friendly. Perfect!
We stayed in 3-bed room villa in July.
The villa is spacious, very clean, very quiet, well-equipped with modern kitchen appliances and BBQ outside.
On arrival to villa, we saw some basic food stuffs were bought for us and cold drinks were already prepared in the fridge...I felt very welcomed. This kind of gesture of welcoming is very rare in France, especially in Corsica.
We had a wonderful stay in Corsica with 2 children in this beautiful villa.
I will definetely come back again and recommend my friends.

We stayed in a 4-bedroom unit and everything was in perfect condition.
The area is quiet but there is a bakery and small shop not too far from the villa. The swimming pool is clean and fun for children.
You have easy access to nearby beaches Cala Rossa and St. Julien, we found the best one to be St. Julien.
Our host Mr. Reynaud was helpful in giving advice on where to go and also driving directions so we could find the villa.
The BBQ provided is more like an outdoor frying pan though.
All in all, we had a great experience staying at the villa and a fantastic vacation to Corsica. We will for sure come back again.
We stayed 1 week in Villa 2 Marina Rossa. Plenty of space inside, large garden with BBQ, deck chairs, covered dining area, nice shower with plenty of hot water, good wifi, nice swimming pool and a short walk to the beach. The villa is very quiet, we would have like to be able to walk to shops but you can walk to restaurants/bars in the evenings. Don't miss Bonifacio only a short drive away and of course Palombaggia and Santa Giulia beaches. Very friendly welcome, would recommend.
Thank you monsieur reynard for the excellent information and correspondence before arrival and for the very warm welcome to marina rossa. The villa was in a quiet area, it was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Wi-Fi was excellent, as were the pretty gardens and pool area. The villa is a 5 min walk to cala rossa beach which is clean and picturesque with good quality restaurants and amenities. The main supermarket us 5 min drive and porto vecchio 10 min, the old town and square has some excellent places to eat. It's a 15 min drive to some lovely natural rivers in The hills. The villa is ideal for families with young or older children, my teenage son very much liked the annexe bedroom with ensuite, it was like his own space. We would highly recommend marina rossa and would not hesitate to return. Thank you monsieur reynard!
We had a wonderful stay. The accommodation is lovely and had everything we needed. The pool was secure which was good as we have two young children. The pool area was really nice and everywhere was well maintained and clean. Only minor downside is that the garden didn't have a gate and therefore my children kept trying to escape. We resolved this by putting chairs in front of the exits and this wouldn't put me off returning but just thought it was worth mentioning for families with young children. The location is perfect - lots and lots of stunning beaches nearby.
