Jean-Marie has created a little paradise with his Zella endeavor and continues to improve and develop his property. The chambres d'hotes are very comfortable (great bed and beautiful linens) and the bathroom is very contemporary, spacious and chic. Gorgeous, bucolic setting with cows, goats and dogs roaming just a few feet away. The dinners and breakfasts were delicious and carefully prepared. Lots of food and excellent wine!
Jean-Marie is full of energy, very likeable and happy to give a lovely tour of the property and the history of the place. He was so helpful and sympathetic when my husband had back issues, trying to get in touch with a doctor and offering ideas to help us along on the rest of our journey. The perfect host and renaissance man!
We would be very happy to return when we can spend more time exploring the area and dine on the gorgeous terrace overlooking the valley and mountains. Thank you for an unforgettable stay at Zella!
Jean-Marie welcomed us, 'my English (guests)', with open arms, keen that we taste his best dishes and experience the Haut Taravo through walks, and on our last day walking around the beautiful location seeing the pigs tended by his father and trying water divining! It was a perfect place - evening meals mostly very good, on a terrace looking up at the mountains and mostly in warm weather. The room could have done with tea-making facilities, and extra waste bin and a few more coathangers but we will mention this to our hosts, alongside stressing that guests need to know in advance that they can only take cash payment for meals and drinks.

We just came back from a wonderful trip through Corsica and if there is one place I would like to comment on, it is this one. As there are no comments in English to this day I will write in this language to let non-french speaking visitors also get an impression of the place.
We have travelled through Corsica by bike and mainly stayed in guest houses. This one was our favorite by far. Jean-Marie and her spouse have made a daring bet: build a guest house and restaurant in the middle of the Corsican "maquis".
We had a wonderful stay and appreciated the time they spent with us, showing us their land and discussing on their terrasse, which has a breathtaking view on the hills around. The food was fine and authentic Corsican cuisine.
Thank you again for your hospitality!
