An eighteenth-century family home ​

La Balagne is a region of North-West Corsica, not far from Calvi and the Ile Rousse. It is a beautiful area, full of villages clinging to sea-facing hillsides with houses with ochre-rendered walls and orange-tiled roofs. One such village is Pigna, where cars are banned, making it an oasis of calm, filled with music. Its small, newly restored church, its contemporary-style auditorium built of rammed earth, its cafés and restaurants, welcome mostly Corsican musical performers from April to October. The beautiful Palazzu Pigna is located towards the upper part of the village. Dominique Franscheschini has restored this eighteenth-century family home and converted it into a small hotel with a gastronomic restaurant, while retaining its original charm and ambiance.  The walls of the entrance hall and stairwell are hung with paintings by local artists. On the first floor are two beautiful, huge, one-bedroom suites with sofabeds for one or two people in the lounge, old-fashioned bathrooms and terraces with superb views of the valley and the sea. On the second (attic) floor are two small bedrooms which share a terrace; the third bedroom is larger and has a sofabed for an extra person and a beautiful terrace. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the garden. A beautiful place where you will be warmly welcomed to a charming family home!
