About this listing

Charming cottage 30m from the sea on beautiful wild peninsula. Breathtaking views! Calvi town centre 3 km away, 1km of road is rough. Child friendly beach 5 minutes walk. Ideal for hikers. One week rental minimum, preferably Saturday to Saturday.

The space

The cottage is equipped with a stove, oven, fridge, washing-machine, dish-washer, microwave, tableware and a hairdryer. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans, utensils, etc. There is wireless broadband Internet which very occasionally is unreliable as the telephone lines are old.
There is a hammock seat, a speaker system, as well as a 32-inch (80cm) television, which you can connect to your laptop or device with an HDMI cable (HDMI or Apple MiniDisplay Port) if you want to watch movies. There are a number of guidebooks, books on Corsican history and flora and fauna, toys for children (balls, spades, a paddling pool) as well as three masks and snorkels and various pairs of flippers. There are also 30 years worth of National Geographics, as well as numerous french comic books to read.

Perfect place for a holiday near the coastline. A 4wd car is preferable to reach the house. Accomodation is basic but you have everything you need. We will come back!

Leo's place is great for relaxing and unwinding. After 1 big supermarket shop early on in the week we never left the bay. Swimming great and lots of local walks. House is well equipped. Access road just needs slow driving and then you are fine. Great place!

We've stayed in over 30 AirBnB places before and this was by far the best stay ever! A true gem, clearly unique and the way AirBnB should be. The view from the terrace and the main bedroom is breathtaking. You see the blue sea and can enjoy the serenity of the peninsula of Revellata. Swimming and snorkeling with massive schools of fish is only 20m away! The place is cozy, clean and well equipped. Leo's approach of replenishment and cleaning by the current guests for the next guests worked well for us. Arrival and departure worked perfectly. The road was okay - Audi A6 fully packed and carrying 4 passengers was no problem. Overall, Leo and his neighbor made sure that everything is fine. We can fully recommend staying here and would always come back! Many thanks again!

We loved it, all four of us. It seems to be the end of the world. Very quite because of the rough road, specially in the evening. The sea is just some steps away and very lonely beaches very close by. The house was perfect for us, the neighbors next door a bit closer than expected but everything was very nice. Kitchen is well equipped. If you want entertainment or need what so ever you will find it in Calvi, which is absolutely reachable. Our contact with Leo was very good, but there were no problems to be solved, so it was quite rare. Also the kids (15+9) the dog and cat enjoyed it! We didn't want to leave, we will be happy to come back!!!

The house is perfect for two small families, since one of the bedroom (with shower) is in a studio under the terrace. The view is amazing (sea and mountains, what more can you ask?). A sandy beach 10 min walk from the house with a nice restaurant where bands perform sometimes. Many small creeks where you can lay a couple of towels, and from where you can go snorkeling.

Très beau séjour dans cette maison très bien placée .une vue splendide et le calme absolu car nous n'avions aucun voisin. L'accès par la piste est un peu difficile mais Léo nous avait prévenu et le séjour en vaut la peine. On peut accéder à Calvi à pied par un petit sentier en 1 h c'est très sympa. Le miel de Christian le voisin est un délice .

Die Lage des Hauses ist sensationell, der Hinweis auf den Straßenzustand sollte ernst genommen werden! Wunderbare Terrasse mit direktem Blick auf wunderschöne Bucht!
