“Casa Capellini - wonderful B&B”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This was our second time at Casa Capellini, and we can only confirm all the wonderful things the other reviewers have written - beautiful location, great house, wonderful host Anne Marie, fantastic food and so relaxing. We look forward to visiting again next time we come to Corsica!

We stayed 3 night in August - beautiful rooms, great service in a place that is well worth the detour from the beaches.
This area of Corsica is magical. You will have beautiful hikes up very varying terrain - from the dense Maquis to areas full of pine treas (Lac de Melu).
The staff is very helpful and helped us find great hikes and restaurants.

We have stayed in Casa Capelini initally for 3 nights, but as we have really liked and enjoed the place a lot we have extended our stay by 2 more days. The house is on a beautiful spot and the rooms allow to enjoy a beautiful panaramatic view. It is a perfect place for just relaxing or to make hiking trips in the surrounding mountains and villages with small pitoresque historic churches or you can just go to Corte (25mins by car) and start the trips from there.
We have enjoyed the food, we found it delicious, all freshly prepared from local and bio products with a care. It is a great opportunity to experience local cuisine. Anne-Marie was very friendly guest and we have spent good time discussing the local habits and history and have enjoyed that. Thanks to her we have refreshed our French and she was always nice to us, suggesting the trips and interesting places we may want to visit.
It was our first experience with guest house and we have been delighted and definitely would recommend it.

Room Tip: We recommend rooms facing south, as they have best panoramatic views.

This summer my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful and unique three day privately guided hiking vacation at Casa Capellini in northern Corsica. This five guest room bed and breakfast is perched at 2500 ft. in the small mountain village of St. Andrea di Bozio, just 15 minutes from Corte. We were warmly greeted by residence manager and chef, Ann Marie, who along with owner and hiking guide Jean Francois, took us immediately to our top floor, like new, corner room. Behind our bright blue door was our room containing a large comfortable queen size bed and separate toilet and shower rooms decorated in beautiful ceramic tiles. New thermo pane French doors opened up to a large tiled patio/deck with comfortable chaise lounge chairs that afforded a spectacular panoramic view of the rugged mountain ranges that are home to the famous and demanding GR20 hiking trail. These first rate accommodations exceeded our wildest expectations. Right from the start of our three day stay Ann Marie and Tracy hit it off. Ann Marie prepared a delicious lunch of nicoise salad and to die for fresh fruit (melon and peaches). After a short rest Jean Francois took us on a two hour introductory hike around the village, past the church and up through a forested landscape to a neighboring village at 3,500 ft. We passed under and around huge old Chestnut trees, green and white oak trees that provided cover for domestic Corsican black pigs and blond cows foraging through the woods. For our first evening meal, Ann Marie placed us by ourselves on the outside terrace for a romantic dinner overlooking the village and mountains in the distance. For the next two days we hiked 6 to 8 hours each day in varied terrain, we trekked through dense forest, scrambled up and around waterfalls, climbed to small alpine lakes, and even lunched with shepherd friends of Jean Francois in a mountain pass. Each day Ann Marie prepared our picnic lunches consisting of pasta salad (the best I ever ate), local cheese and dried meat, Corsican French bread, fresh fruit and a dark chocolate bar. In the evening we relaxed in this tranquil setting, dined with other guests, enjoyed local wines and ate healthy, local Corsican dishes expertly prepared by Ann Marie. We loved our stay at Casa Capellini.

I visited this 'chambre d'hôte' in the summer season so me and my friends paid a lot of money for it, certainly because we couldn't share a room with three people so we were forced to take a double and expensive single room (100 euro per night). In that case one can expect some service and even luxury. When we arrived, the host was little friendly but we were thinking it had to do with being all by herself and taking care of dinner. We booked dinner since it's in an isolated location. That night there seemed to be a plague of flying ants. The host didn't do anything to keep them out, the door and windows were open so they came flying in and disturbed the meal terribly. The host kept saying that it was the way it was and that insects were a part of life. By the time dessert was served, the ants were eating our pear tart and us alive! The host was angry with us because 'we didn't understand'. The next day, she tried to make up for it but not really very spontanous. Besides this, the rooms have a wonderful view but are small and the including breakfast not worth the price. The food at dinner is average (fish to salty, poor explanation of the ingredients, ...) and the host is really unfriendly.

We stayed in Casa Capellini for two nights and Casa Vanella for two nights and then on to Porto for two nights. The two B&Bs are wonderful and with beautiful views...the food was delicious and authentic. Pascale went out of her way to accomodate every one of my suggestions/requests. They did a great job evaluating the hiking abilities of their guests and making hiking recommendations that gave us a taste of the various terrains on Corsica.

The service upon arrival was warm and inviting.
Pascale's English was extremely good and more than made up for any shortfall in our French.
We took advantage of their evening meal option and we certainly didnt regret it as the variety of local foods accompanied with regional wine was a real treat.
For the evening meal all the guests are seated around one table, which at first glance might put some people off, but please be assured this is all part of the beauty of this place and the other guests make the experience an evening to remember.
The evening flew past and the night was as quiet as you could wish for.
The views from the property and surrounding gronds are both beautiful and relaxing.
The are many walks from the accommodation with one taking you along a crystal clear river with pools for a quick dip.
Needless to say we wouldn't think twice about booking again.
