It was great to stay Chez Charles before starting the GR20 (the starting point Calenzana is only 20 minutes away). The staff is super nice and full of good tips to enjoy the area, the mosaic swimming pool perfect to refresh, and the breakfast is by far the best one we have had in Corsica with locally sourced products and many homemade jams. The rooms are comfortable.
Thank bestregards fromfar

If you are going to the north of Corsica, this is the place to stay.

We booked this hotel by email early in the evening after finding it in book....com. We always reserve direct so the whole money goes to the hotel. It’s sad to see how people still reserve in web sites others than the official ones from hotels. Hotels pay huge commissions for those reservations!

Well, we arrived and were welcomed by the staff and the owner. We were upgraded and the baby bed we asked by email was there. Nice room with a nice view, clean, bath, what else?

We had a nice dinner at the hotel. It seems that their restaurant has one start Michelin. Nice view!

Breakfast. Whhhaoooo!!!! Six different juices, good cheese, good ham, good butter, croissants...

Nice from the beginning until the end so:
We will be back!
Thank Laweier

Fastest check-in of any hotel - just handed my room key (no id, no credit card, no questions). Room was nice, had everything you might want for (except for tea and coffee making facilities perhaps). BUT - it is not within walking distance of any other restaurants and the only hotel offering is the slightly odd Michelin starred restaurant. With little other option and no room service we ended up having a "picnic" in our room on night two.
Thank Jennifer H

Dear Jennifer, Thanks for your comment. We are glad our check-in process was at your convenience. Chez Charles a perfect base to explore the La Balagne region. Nestled in the charming village of Lumio, within a stone's throw of Calvi and L'Île-Rousse, our hotel lends itself well to a romantic getaway. This nice place offers an unbelievable view of the Gulf of Calvi in close proximity to La Balagne's mountain villages. We take note of your observations. We regret our location didn't convince you. We want to inform you that tea and coffee making facilities are available at the reception on request. Our starred Michelin restaurant "Le Grand Oggi" offers a menu elaborated from noble and gourmet products and which changes regularly. We regret it wasn't to your liking. Yet, it usually appreciated by our guests. Thanks for mentioning the stylish decoration of our rooms. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again. Yours sincerely, Joseph FONDACCI, Owner
