If you would like to stay with a Corsican family from the village of Pila-Canale, then choose the Villa Guidi! This stone house is located on a hillside overlooking the village and mountains and it has been renovated and converted into a B&B by the Habani family, Christian, Manette and Mariana. The B&B offers four rooms and suites and a loft, all furnished with care, each in a different style, but all inspired by Corsican singers and groups (A Filetta, Diana di l’Alba, etc.). They are spacious and comfortable and their bathrooms have beautiful Italian-style showers or baths and each has a terrace overlooking the valley. At breakfast time you will have an opportunity to sample the delicious home-made marmelade, made with oranges from the orchard, and Corsican biscuits. Some evenings, Christian cooks memorable set-menu meals in the greatest secrecy. A magical atmosphere is created by the warm welcome, the dozens of candles buring in every corner of the garden and the prettily laid tables. Dressed in a white apron, Christian brings in food on his trolley prepared with the best fresh local produce from his garden or the village. He is the life and soul of the house, an extraordinary personality. You can admire the trophies he won as a rally driver and also the musical stars who came to eat at his restaurant in Ajaccio. He will talk to you about Corsica, philosophy, or he will seranade you, accompanying his beautiful voice with his guitar. Unforgettable!
From "La Terrasse de Lautrec" there are splendid views of the surrounding hills and countryside. The French-style gardens and the old pond behind the house were built on the former town ramparts. More recently, a delightful swimming pool has been discreetly added.
