“Strange idea of hospitality at restaurant Chez Mimi”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2009

The Santa Maria Hotel is located nicely in a quiet village; the rooms are very small and guests shouldn't expect any luxuries.
We stayed at 'demi pension'and therefore ate at the restaurant Chez Mimi. The food there is very good, but much to our surprise on our second night we were given a course less than the guests who were staying for their first night. At first we thought a mistake was being made but on request were told : No charcuteries every night! We did however pay the same amount of money as the other guests who did receive this course.
So my advise is: stay only one night !

Stayed April 2009

The hotel is a small character hotel with only a few rooms. I was in the biggest double room, although even this was quite small. There was nothing fancy, but it had all mod cons - shower, tv, etc.

The great thing about this hotel is the location and the fact that you can immerse yourself in the traditional Corsican life. Most people in the village speak Corse (a Genoan dialect similar to Italian) as well as the official language, French. If you're looking for a quiet break, or you're in need of a stopover whilst exporing the beautiful Corsican countryside then this is the place for you. The views are stunning.

The staff at the hotel are very friendly, especially the receptionist Audrey who was absolutely fantastic throughout my stay. Incidentally, Audrey speaks excellent english, but unfortunately is the only one!

Also, the restaurant 'Chez Mimi' is quite famous throughout the region and I can't fault it. The food was delicious, especially the selection of charcuterie which is a speciality of the region.

The nearest town is Propriano, which you can see below you from Olmeto. Its only 10 minutes by car, but beware a taxi cost me €40! Great beach and restaurants here, and another great beach at Olmeto Plage which is also very close.

Transport links aren't great with only one or two buses a day passing through to Ajaccio or Bonifacio.

All in all, a fantastic stay. Although because I don't drive, next time I will stay somewhere with better transport.

  • Liked — The views, the food, and the excellent service.
  • Disliked — Bad transport links, beds weren't great.
  • Stayed July 2008, travelled as a couple
