A small, friendly and attractively-appointed inn located on the almost traffic-free D23 between Murzo and Guagno les Bains, with no other habitation nearby and a backdrop of mountains. Le patron does the cooking and his wife and other members of the family organise front of house.
Our room (no. 3) had a wonderful king-size bed piled with cushions. There was an en-suite shower and toilet - no bath - and a door opening to a tiny outside terrace amid the sloping roofs; this was not furnished and you could not really consider it a balcony, just somewhere to get a breath of air. There was a comfortable lounge adjoining the restaurant, with an enormous TV, and a large outdoor terrace furnished with chairs and tables, though too cold while we were there to be tempted to sit out.
We can't see any logic in charging for wi-fi in the modern age; then again we were charmed on check-out to discover that a number of the coffees, aperitifs and digestifs we had had during our stay had been knocked off the bill, compliments of le patron.
We were offered good-value half-board but actually we always choose to dine a la carte and there were some interesting possibilities on the menu, a little different from standard fare. The starter of hot croquettes filled with soft, creamy black pudding was really good and I had here the best raviolis au Brocciu of the entire trip. I also enjoyed the duck breast glazed with honey, but to my taste the shoulder of lamb and leg of goat kid (both perfectly tender) would have benefited from more jus or a sauce. Accompaniments of potatoes dauphinoise and stewed peppers and courgettes were excellent; portions were huge, even slightly daunting.
The wine list was all Corsican; there were some helpful notes (assuming you read French) and the top-price Sant Armettu Myrtus (red) at 38 Euros was marvellous.
The nearby small town of Vico (back down the valley) is charming, and from Vico you can make an excellent day-long round tour to Sagone (maybe detour south to Tiuccia as well), followed by Cargese, Piana, the wonderful Calanques de Piana, Porto, then back up the stunning Gorges de Spelunca to Evisa and back to Vico.
