A perfect little house to escape from it all
Located in a quiet village in the mountains, this house is sat high above a quiet road with an awesome view from the lounge window and balcony. The only noise is from the birds and crickets which was glorious! The house owner Marie met us close by and drove us to the house and showed us around. She made sure we knew where everything was and that she owned the local bar so wouldn't be far away if we needed anything! The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, pots & pans, dishes & cutlery, hob and separate oven. It was nice to have the coffee machine, something we made good use of. There were only 2 of us staying but there's definitely room for 4 adults (1 double bed & 2 single beds). The house is only a few years old so everything felt quite modern. It was nice to have the bedroom cupboards to hang our clothes up. There's an iron, spare towels and blankets. There's a drying rack outside with lots of space in case you do any washing and plenty of room for sunbathing and dining on the patio, despite looking small in the pictures. The electric gate made us feel secure and operates via a key fob. We walked into the village a few times for a drink and a meal (a few mins walk), we used the post office and got some supplies from the local butchers. There's also a patisserie in the village but we didn't try it out. Everyone was really nice and even though we didn't speak much French, we still got by ok because they made an effort with us (lucky for us!). The nearest supermarket is a reasonable size Spa 20 mins by car, but that's about it accept a few restaurants dotted around. The main city of Ajaccio about 40 mins away is where we flew to and it has an abundance of shops including lots of large supermarkets, home stores and a Decathlon. You would not be able to stay on this island without hiring a car because the mountains make everything further to get to but that's just the nature of the terrain and the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was a nice, comfortable house to come home to after a day of exploring.

Mooie, rustige plaats
Tijdens onze moto vakantie in Corsica, zijn we zeer vriendelijk ontvangen bij aankomst door Marie - Jo, die zelfs voor koekjes had gezorgd (lekker).
Wij waren met 4 volwassen mensen (ook 4 motoren) en het huis is hier erg goed voor geschikt, zelfs een wasmachine en afwasmachine hadden we tot onze beschikking. 2 dagen lekker barbecue op het gezellig terras, waar we enkel de vogels horen fluiten. Echt een aanrader, want mijn vrienden en ik zijn geïnteresseerd om hier terug te komen, samen met de partner.
Bedankt Marie - Jo voor onze reuze vakantie.
jolie petite maison fonctionnelle seul petit bémol la rampe d'accès vraiment très en pente ( selon la voiture, le véhicule frotte le parterre en passant le caniveau de la route ) mais sinon très bonne semaine. Village très vivant, Marie-Jo très-très sympa. location a recommandée pour 4 personnes.
house located 5 minutes walk from the village center, where you will find bakers, butchers, bar, restaurants, pizzeria.
you will also be just minutes from the roads leading to the gorge ricchiusa (canyoning) and climbing, as well as many walks. You can also check out the cascade of Bridal Veil and bathe in the river.
Bocognano is only 30 minutes from Ajaccio and the beach and it takes only 10 minutes to climb to the Col de Vizzavona (trekking, tree climbing, waterfall "of English" ..)
