We spent two wonderful weeks in Corsica. It was our first visit and we felt in love with the island.
My general experience with Corsica (not only with this property) that it's significantly more expensive than other places (Greece or Spain for example). For the same money you usually have something more modest.
All the information given by owner is true besides maybe the distance to the see: it's more like 10-20 minutes by foot, not 5 minutes unless you run :). But the sea is indeed very close.
The location of the apartment is extremely good: close to a few great beaches, very close to Porticcio (shops, and restaurants) and not far from Ajaccio (even more shops and restaurants). A superb windsurfing school (Porticcio) is close. Places like Vizzavona, Filitosa and Bonifaccio are more difficult to reach but close enough for a day visit by car.
Arlette was helpful on the first day when we came very late (driving from Calvi). She could not meet us herself but she asked her friend to do so and to drive with us to the property which was not easy to find without prior knowledge.
The apartment is equipped with basic things like a small fridge, cooking plate, dish washer and a washing machine. The equipment is pretty old but functional. It was a bit inconvenient that the fridge was shifted out from its place under the cooking plate (with a sticker "do not move") and in order to cook one needed to bend over and reach.
On moderately hot days it was Ok without an air conditioner but on very hot and sunny ones it was difficult to sleep at night. Maybe simple fans could help to improve the air flow from outside at night.
The view from the terrace is superb: a great place to observe sunset.
This apartment has no Internet connection which is a pity. I though i'd go to some shop in Porticcio and get some mobile internet for a reasonable price. But surprisingly it wasn't possible. In order to get one I needed to drive to a shopping mall near Ajaccio and there I was offered to get one month access for 80 euro (50 euro for modem, 30 euro for 4GB traffic) which is very expensive. It would be helpful if the owner had some solution available at a more reasonable price.
To conclude: it is a nice apartment with an extremely good location which is equipped in a basic way.
Très agréable séjour dans un très beau cadre à Coti chiavari, de très belles plages à l'eau cristalline sont à proximité et les propriétaires sont très chaleureux.
La situation géographique de cet emplacement est magnifique. Nous nous levons et nous couchons avec le soleil et la vue sur Ajaccio et les îles Sanguinaires fait rêver. Nos hôtes ont organisé notre arrivée avec minutie et Jeanine (femme de ménage mandatée pour nous accueillir sur place) est très aimable. Un séjour inoubliable.
Accueil formidable et très convivial. Arlette et son mari sont des hôtes charmants. Logement indépendant, fonctionnel et bien équipé. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le calme et la terrasse, bordée d'arbres et de fleurs, avec vue sur les Îles Sanguinaires. De très belles plages à proximité (Cala d'Orzu, Portigliolo, Mare e Sole, Isolella, Agosta). Nous ne pouvons que recommander ce petit paradis que nous avons quitté avec regrets.
