Great Villa with wonderful views
The villa is situated on a hill above the town commanding wonderful views whatever time of day, but they especially spectacular in the evening while watching the sunset over the bay. It has three good size double rooms and a triple. The double bedrooms are well appointed, the triple is a little dark but functional. The living space is on the top floor, with a large lounge dinner, opening out onto a veranda. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa, and enjoyed the homely atmosphere. The kitchen is well equipped and we spent most evening on the veranda enjoying the views and home cooked food. If you wanted to venture out their are plenty of good restaurants on the beach in the local town which is approximately a 10 min walk down the hill, but just remember you have to make it back up the hill after your night out. Shops are close by, with carrefour in town for all your major supplies. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, with plenty of beaches, shops and restaurants close by it's a perfect break.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated all that Villa Josephine had to offer.
Beautiful villa josephine!
We were a group of 7 UK scuba divers, with 5 staying at the Josephine and 2 staying at the viva marina in the town.
Our 1st impression was the same as our last, this is a wonderful place to stay!.
Mrs Bianchi and her husband (a keen diver) prepared the villa very well met us in the morning and made us feel welcome.
The villa itself is absoloutly charming, you could tell that the owners had lavished love and care on it and everywhere you looked there was something to like, from the nick nacks around the bathrooms and bedrooms to the pictures on the walls of the lounge and kitchen, you could tell that thought had gone into making it a place to be proud of.
As a group of middle aged men we are generally quite lazy so we tend to eat out normally. However at the Josephine we wanted to stay and watch the sunsets (spectacular!) and talk over the days diving and the terrace became our focal point. And we demonstrated culinary skills that we did not know we possessed.
Views - Stunning,if anything the pictures dont do it justice
Facilities - excellent, cant think of anything that was not provided
Cleanliness - very clean and functional
Location - easy to get to and in a fantastic position
Commnication - very good comms from the owners both before we got there and a huge folder of info about the villa, Porticcio and the surrounding area
Garden - beautifully maintained and a great place to relax and wind down
Bedrooms - great views and very comfortable
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our villa experience and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Corsica.
Many thanks to Micheal and Marie Catherine!!
We are very pleased that your stay at Villa Josephine went well and that everyone enjoyed the views, sunsets and all that the house has to offer.
Excellent house with amazing views
The house was very clean and tidy and is really well equipped with all the crockery, kitchen utensils etc that we could possibly need. We loved the access to the terraces/balcony from each of the three main bedrooms. The barbecue was brill.
We really enjoyed exploring the local beaches and the nearby restaurants. Even in August you can find quieter coves. The short walk back is partly uphill - hence the spectacular views. It is a good location for getting into the mountains by car. We also enjoyed the ferry over to Ajaccio. The information left by the owners came in handy.
A very easy house to relax in.
We are very pleased to receive positive comments and to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at Villa Josephine - thank you!
Great house with lots of lovely details!
Our impressions of Villa Josephine:
Great house with lots of lovely details, very nice location, wonderful views in all directions, gorgeous sunsets and a delightful garden planted with love. Created in different levels, letting each area be an own island of silent.
Terrific is the large dining table on the terrace, which was our evening centre and barbecue area next to it, invited us over and over again for grilling. ... And so we made it only once to enjoy the exquisite shells at "Chez Alain".
In house and garden you can relax very nice in a quiet, Villa Josephine is the ideal place to let yourself relax and to dangle your soul.
Shops, beaches and restaurants, as well as the small boat harbour to transfer to Ajaccio are within walking distance.
Our extended family spent wonderful days in Corsica. The host couple is very friendly and very concerned about the well-being of the guests. At this point a big thank you to Catherine and Michael! We would definitely come back!
Tolles Haus mit ganz vielen liebevollen Details, sehr schöne Lage, wunderbare Ausblicke in alle Richtungen, traumhafte Sonnenuntergänge, entzückender Garten liebevoll bepflanzt und mit verschiedenen Ebenen, der für jeden eine eigene Insel der Ruhe schafft. Grandios ist der große Esstisch auf der Terrasse, der unser abendliches Zentrum war und der Grillplatz gleich daneben, lud uns immer wieder zum Grillen ein. …und so haben wir es nur einmal geschafft die vorzüglichen Muscheln bei „Chez Alain“ zu genießen. In Haus und Garten kann man in absoluter Ruhe sehr schön entspannen, Villa Josephine ist der ideale Platz um sich zu Erholen und die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Geschäfte, Strände und Restaurants, sowie der kleine Bootshafen zum Übersetzen nach Ajaccio sind zu Fuß gut zu erreichen. Wir haben als (Groß-)Familie wunderbare Tage hier verbringen dürfen und konnten uns nur schwer trennen. Das Vermieterpaar ist sehr freundlich und sehr bemüht um das Wohl der Gäste, an dieser Stelle ein herzliches Dankeschön an Catherine und Michael! Wir kommen gerne wieder!
It is always good to get positive feedback and we are very pleased to hear that the family enjoyed their stay in Villa Josephine so much
Lovely Villa in Porticcio
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Villa Josephine. The property was excellent and was well maintained and clean. We found that the information provided prior to our stay and at the property itself was extremely useful and enabled us to make the most of our time in Corsica. This was the third time we had stayed in this particular area of the island but we managed to find some new places to explore as well as return to many of our favourite spots. The property was extremely comfortable for us and was well equipped. The property is in a great location, very convenient for the airport and visiting Ajaccio and other places of interest including the Gorges du Prunelli. There are plenty of boat trips from Porticcio enabling you to see other parts of this beautiful island. As the weather was so good we spent most of our time on the many local beaches, and you needn't drive very far to find some really great beaches. There are also plenty of excellent places to eat locally - our favourite was Chez Alain at Agosta Plage which we went back to three times - great food, very reasonable and extremely friendly staff. There are also lots of shops in Porticcio which enable you to buy from local butchers, fruit and vegetable shops etc without necessarily needing a supermarket (although the local supermarket also caters for most needs). We would definitely recommend a stay at this property and we would like to return to it at some point in the future.
It is always to good to hear that guests enjoyed their stay and that the holiday was a success.
Villa Joséphine is truly welcoming!
We are now back in Belgium with wonderful memories of our third visit to Corsica. Villa Josephine is warm and welcoming, comfortable for all the family with picture postcard views from all the windows. Not only that but sunshine and over 1100kms on small roads by motorcycle....
A big thank you!
