Full property description

The Old World charm of Corsican history is accented here by the sophistication of this modern four-bedroom house, set in the mountainside town of Chiatra.

The house is air-conditioned, and a beautiful indoor fireplace is also provided for year-round comfort. Wireless Internet is available at no additional charge and a washing machine, dryer, and ironing table/iron have been provided for your convenience.

The kitchen is equipped with every modern amenity needed for your stay, from a fridge and stove to a coffee machine, and with an electric dishwasher, clean-up will be minimal. Relax in the dining area, which seats 8, or outside on the terrace with a glass of wine, watching the sun set over the mountains. A barbeque is also provided.

Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor; one holds a double bed, and the others each contain two singles (a baby cot is also available upon request). The loft bedroom provides two additional singles as well as a convenient WC, while the shared bathroom on the lower level has a bathtub and WC.

Cosy couch cushions and a stone fireplace beckon you to the comfort of the living room, where you can enjoy each other’s company or take in a movie on the flat-screen satellite TV, with a DVD/Blu-Ray player.

Linen and towels are included in the rental price.

Private parking is available. Smoking is allowed, but pets are not welcome.

Area description

The house sits in the ideal spot for touring the island, in a secluded, wooded estate surrounded by chestnut trees, overlooking Alesani Lake. The area offers opportunities for horseback riding, mountain biking, paragliding and a variety of water sports.

The charming town of Chiatra, less than 1km from your house, is well-known for its walking and hiking trails, offering programmed circuits ranging from 1 to 4 hours and of varied difficulty levels. Be adventurous and climb Mount Oppido (less than two hours), or take the less strenuous fountain tour, an hour-long trek to six beautiful fountains, ending in the village square. Chiatra offers two beautiful panoramas of the lake and Mount Oppido; be sure to take in both in addition to the architectural interests throughout the town, such as the three Genoese towers.

You’ll be 60min from the port of Bastia, 20min from the Taverna marina (near Moriani beach), 20min from the famous fortress and museum of Aleria and 30min from Ghisonaccia, with its lively nightlife and great shopping.

You will find the nearest restaurant and bar in Chiatra, and a large supermarket within 10km. Other highlights nearby include an outdoor cinema, a fun fair and beach volleyball.
