“Luxurious”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

As soon as we saw Residence Dary being advertised, we thought "Wow we must stay there". On arrival, we were apprehensive that they would not live up to our expectations, but we were not disappointed. They were amazing! A warm welcome came from the owner Julian Dary and his assistant Edith, who speaks perfect English.
The apartments are spotlessly clean with every gadget available, and the views of the med are awesome.Everything is 5 star, from the pristine wine glasses, crockery and cutlery to the fluffy white towels and premium bedding. There is a cleaning service but we did not use it, just loaded up the dishwasher every night.
In June, Ile Rousse is very quiet with many restaurants empty but at least the service was good! Food is excellent and not too pricey. There is a small supermarket and lovely patisseries to buy your baguettes and croissants.
We cannot praise the apartments and their wonderful staff enough. Yes they are quite expensive, but if you want 5 star accommodation in a delightful resort, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Try to get a first floor apartment for panoramic views of the sea and town.

We travelled with our 2 young children (3 and 1) to Calvi and then onto Ile Rousse. The Residence is fantastic. These are apartment style rooms with the ameneties and service of a luxury hotel.

There are only a handful of apartments for rental (weekly) which makes the experience the more personal. The owner/management (Julien) was extremely welcoming and helpful prior and during our stay. Our kids were treated like royalty and had all they needed ready in the room (crib, high chair, baby utensils...).

The apartment kitchen is fantastic with modern appliances and a view on the sea which made it the more inviting to make some home-cooked meals.

There is a secured reserved parking on-site. An added value.
The prximity to the beach (only 20m) is the big plus. This is what we call a true pied-dans-l'eau.

There are many options available for dining in the vicinity (all within walking distance) including the centre of Ile Rousse. If in doubt, ask Julien for receommendations.
I should not forget the amazing delivery of a baguette and croissants early in the morning that Julien would graciously deliver (himself) if interested.

We will definitely be back and probably for a longer period!

Room Tip: Make sure you take the first floor rooms to ensure you have a view of the Mediterranean Sea!

The units are new, clean and very modern just as advertised. We were extremely disappointed with the somewhat dishonest advertising of the view. We rented this place and paid 2500 euros for the specutacular sea view that was advertised. The view as depicted in the photos of their ads are from the top floor, which is not what the ground floor will get. What we got was a garden/pool view.

There are three floors to this building. In the US, we would call the bottom floor, the first floor with the second and third floors above. In France, the bottom floor is called the garden level with the floor above being called the first floor and the top floor being called the second floor. The two lower levels are rented out. There are three units to each of the two floors with the top floor being used by the owner. The garden level has a garden/pool view. One can see only a little bit of the ocean. Most of the ocean is blocked by a retaining wall which surrounds the pool area. If it is the view that you are after, I would recommend that you specifically ask for the first floor which has a spectacular view and make certain that you don't get the bottom floor.

For the second week of our vacation, we stayed in a place with a spectacular sea view, although a much older building and not as nice ammenities, for about 1/4 the price!

We are sorry and affected to know that one of our clients has not been satisfied with his stay in our Résidence.

Be sure that we pay special attention to the comfort and well-being of our clients.

We make it a point of honour to provide description and photos which perfectly reflect reality and our customers can certify this genuineness. Moreover, customers who make their booking directly through our website, always know before receiving their confirmation of reservation, if the appartment is located in ground-garden or on the first floor.

There is no doubt that our guests who have stayed in one of the three appartments located in ground-garden can truthfully confirm that they effectively had a sea view. The photos provided as well as other customers reviews, are additional evidences.

The apartments in ground-garden are slightly raised, so they have a view, certainly a little less open than those of the first floor, but nonetheless with a large sea view. These apartments are also highly demanded, especially by families with young children.

Concerning the rates, we believe that these are largely justified by the luxury of our residence and good quality services provided. Each apartment is officially classified 5 stars providing a terrace of more than 30 m2 and a pergola with blades adjustable. Moreover, the Residence has a heated pool, a jacuzzi and a private beach 20 meters away, with deckchairs and sunshades available to customers of the Residence. We offer luxury accommodation, right on the beach, with upscale amenities, a discret and constant presence to meet the demands of our customers, and all this with hotel services.

In Corsica and more specifically on the Ile Rousse, you can no doubt find accommodations with lower rates, but you won’t benefit neither of our unique location, nor of the luxury of our residence, nor quality services that our Residence can provide. This is a choice.


Nous sommes désolés et affectés de constater qu’un client n'ait pu être satisfait de son séjour dans notre Résidence.

En effet, nous portons une attention toute particulière au confort et au bien-être de notre clientèle.

Nous mettons un point d'honneur à ce que le descriptif et les photos reflètent parfaitement la réalité et tous nos clients peuvent en témoigner. De plus les clients réservant en direct via notre site internet, savent avant de confirmer leur réservation, si l'appartement est situé en rez-de-jardin, ou au 1er étage.

Il est certain que nos clients ayant séjourné dans l'un des 3 appartements du rez-de-jardin pourront confirmer sans mentir qu'ils disposaient d'une vue sur la mer et les photos, ainsi que d'autres commentaires de nos clients, en sont une preuve supplémentaire.

Les appartements en rez-de-jardin sont légèrement surélevés, ce qui fait qu'ils disposent d'une vue, certes un peu moins ouverte que ceux du premier étage, mais néanmoins très bien visible sur la mer. Ces appartements sont d'ailleurs très demandés, surtout par les familles avec des enfants en bas âge.

Pour ce qui est des tarifs, nous pensons que ceux-ci sont largement justifiés par le standing de notre Résidence et le service que nous proposons. Chaque appartement est classé officiellement 5 étoiles, avec des terrasses de plus de 30 m2 aménagées, pergolas avec lames orientables, piscine chauffée, jacuzzi, et une plage privée à 20 mètres avec transats et parasols à disposition de la clientèle de la Résidence. Nous offrons un hébergement de luxe, pied dans l'eau, avec des équipements haut de gamme, une présence à tout moment pour répondre aux moindres demandes de notre clientèle, et tout cela avec des prestations hôtelières.

En Corse et plus précisément sur l'Ile Rousse, vous pouvez certes trouver des hébergements avec des tarifs beaucoup plus bas, mais vous ne bénéficierez ni de sa situation unique, ni du standing, ni des prestations que propose notre Résidence. Cela reste un choix.

My Wife, Daughter and I spend a week here in the first week of September. Our stay was fantastic. The website and information on TripAdvisor do not do the place justice.

We have found it very difficult to find any faults with the place at all.

It's worth noting that the pool has an automatic heating function, which was great. After a day touring the island or on the beach!

Apartment cleaning is available every day, staff are very friendly and welcoming. Extremely understanding of our limited French skills :)

We had a wonderful time and intend to visit again soon. Thank you to all at the Residence Dary

The residence is expensive, but worth every penny. a true 5 star experience.
