Nice old house renovated in time, consistent with photos. Extraordinary view from the terraces around the house, on the sea and the coast to Saint Florent. Picturesque village of Nonza on the road to Cap Corse. Great online availability and friendliness of the owner and XXX, his on-site contact, on arrival and throughout the stay.

Nice villa, located in a very pleasant seaside resort. Secure domain (fence and entrance gate with code). Good equipment of the house, it misses just a ramp for the climb of stairs to the floor. I will definitely return.

We were 8 on holiday this Easter week. The house is ideally located, close to the beaches and the village at a time. Very quiet too. Only downside for us: the shower and kitchen too small, and lack of space to store "beach business". This says, it does not ruin our stay in F mille!
