A traditional house in the heart of a small isolated hamlet, at the end of the southern shore of Ajaccio. and on the popular 'Pointe de la Castagna'. 40 minutes from Ajaccio airport, 50 minutes from the city center and a stone's throw from the Gulf of the Gulf of Valinco.
Built on ancient wine cellars, it now invites to laze in the shade of tall pine or sunbathe on the terrace facing the sea. The nearest beach is 10/12 minutes walk.

The space

At the heart of the hamlet, the house - Traditional granite and partly contemporary to the other party - was built on ancient wine cellars. The part we offer you (the contemporary) offers on the same level (raised), an open kitchen, a living room with traditional fireplace, a bedroom, a bathroom with separate WC, a large balcony beside parking ( with a small sea view) and a large sea view terrace, part of which enjoys the shade of a large pine tree and on which you can take all your meals.
The house can accommodate 2 people.
For lazy days, for lounging on the terrace in the shade of the big pine, we lend our books to leaf and our CD to listen to.
Quiet and scenery reign in the village but it is far from shops and public transport, a car is essential. Only the delivery of bread and pastries is provided by the baker each morning (advance booking). The nearest supermarket is located about 25 minutes drive but a small village shop is available within 10 minutes and a restaurant is just a few hundred meters from the house.
The services of the house: beds prepared for your arrival, bed linen and towels provided. The change of linen and towels is provided weekly for stays over 7 nights.
The terrace is equipped for outdoor dining (table and chairs) and also rest chairs.
We ask our guests not to smoke in the house but it is quite possible to get a grill on the terrace, taking care to turn off his butt!
The shutters (blinds) let air circulate but this, they are not totally obscuring.
The transformer of one of the lampposts of the hamlet, next room is a bit noisy during operation at night (but it is off night).
Attention: no barbecue.

Guest access

For lazy days, for lounging on the terrace in the shade of large pine, we lend our books to browse and listen to our CD.
The house is equipped with WiFi.

Interaction with guests

We live next door, so if you choose to stay at the house, we will be your closest neighbors. This allows us to be available whenever you need it.

Other things to note

House we try to be as environmentally responsible as possible.
In an unspoilt environment rich in natural, we use, whenever possible, measures and technologies to try to reduce our energy footprint: thermal insulation of the house, solar panels for hot water; VMC (mechanical ventilation) low energy consumption, LED lighting, products from organic or sustainable agriculture. We also strive to avoid needlessly wasting resources; East-West oriented home has sunrise and sunset, and it is always flooded with light and boasts a fully natural air conditioning; the application allows the garden to live without further addition of water or fertilizer. The recycling is not yet fully effective in Corsica.

Christine and his husband welcomed us as old friends! The house is in a very wonderful position, on the hill of Castagna. It's easy to reach with Christine's road book. The Villa is located at the second floor of their house and this let you have always help if you need. The apartment si so clean and really beautiful, you feel immediately at home. There is every thing you need to enjoy your stay. There is a big terrace where we had our breakfast and lunch every day (with a regenerate fresh wind). If you want you can reach a small beach by walk, otherwise we suggest to use the car/motorbike to go to the other beaches. We really suggest the Christine's Apartment. We were so sad to leave it.

Christine and Jean-Dominique are truly hospitably and very obliging. We do not hestitate to recomend their offer at all. The appartment they hire out is in a brand new condition - it reflects the hosts preference of classy interiour design with attention to details. The house is situated in a nice and calm tiny village, apart from busy and touristic areas (which are to reach in a 15 minutes drive). Therefor a car is necessary. There are also various sandy beaches closeby: all reachable between 10 and 30 minutes. Thank you Christine and Jean-Dominique for your warm welcome!

Great, well equipped apartment with beautiful terraces including a marvellous ocean view. Very service-minded and caring hosts! Our stay was perfect and we would definitely come here again if going to Corse again. We felt at home. Even got a baby cot for our 8 month old.

I can't say enough kind and good words for our stay and hosts here in Hameau Castagna. The whole experience and the accommodation, inside and outside, reflects how nice Christine and Jean-Dominique are. They have made this place feel like home, and us guests are lucky enough, to be able to enjoy this! We give five stars for everything, location, the accommodation and above all to our perfect hosts! Thank you for everything... Sasa and Tanja

This was our first experience with airbnb and it could not have been better: Christine and Jean-Dominique are fantastic hosts! They gave us a warm welcome and were always there to help, no matter if we needed help with the espresso machine (great coffee, by the way!) or some advice for our trips. The house itself is absolutely lovely – situated in a rather secluded part of Corsica it is perfect for a relaxing and quiet holiday. We loved the modern furnishing and tasteful decoration. It is fully equipped with everything one needs and impeccably clean. We immediately felt at home and genuinely enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners under the pine on the terrace. There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby (e.g. Plage Cupabia) and shopping opportunities on the way to/from Ajaccio. We genuinely enjoyed every single day at Christine and Jean-Dominiques's house in La Castagna and can only recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful island.
