“Great relaxing stay.”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Had a really enjoyable stay at Le Reteau Bavoir. The place is very easy to find, drove from Bastia airport across the slightly terrifying windy Corsican roads & it's just off the main T30.

Appartment was really nice, the layout of trees outside each one meant it felt private even with other people around. Really good air conditioning inside too, a great relief when its 35 degrees+ ourside. Also came with gas hobs & a microwave so we could cook for ourselves virtually all week (especiialy compared to some of the Calvi restaurant prices!) There's also a BBQ if that takes your fancy.

Only slight downside was the wifi didn't pick up in the room, but mobile signal was fine and if you desperatley needed wi-fi you could pop over to the seats in reception.

Pool's well looked after, open most of the day & is rarely busy even when most of the appartments are rented.

Location is great, everywhere in Calvi is walkable, so you can be at the beach in 5 minutes just by nipping down the road behind the Casino supermarket, and it's about 20 minutes walk up to the Citadel area.

There is deposit due for the room which is paid back before you leave - this was mentioned on Tripadvisor when we booked and the owners gave us extra advance notice before we came to stay, so no issue with that, but just be aware that this is a cash only deposit, so make sure you have enough to cover that along with holiday spending money.

The owners were really helpful and flexible to fit in with our schedule. Although official check-in is at 3pm, we arrived just after 12pm (thank you 6am flight from Gatwick), but we received a friendly greeting and the appartment was ready for us. When leaving we had to go early too (6am), and again they were relly helpful on returning the deposit on the evening before, and plans for safely leaving the keys.

Overall definitiely the place to stay if you want self-catering in Calvi.

“Happy with this rental”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked this very practical bungalow for a full week. The owners are welcoming and friendly. It is well located on the main road in the entrance of Calvi. Easy for parking, convenient for food shopping and 5mn walk to the beach.
We ate under the pergola in front of our flat every evening and used the provided barbecue.
The only downside is that there was no wifi provided in this flat.

“Beaucoup de Charme”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely loved this place. The pool is small but good enough to cool off in. We virtually had it to ourselves most of the time we were there. Always found a lounger. The complex is handy for the beach, restaurants and the shops.

“Well equipped and friendly owners”

person found this review helpful

We spent a week in this quiet location not far from Calvi centre and near a lovely beach with restaurants. The apartment was clean and very well equipped. (Although the patio would be even nicer with a lick of paint!) It consisted of a living room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom (with a very basic shower). The surrounding gardens and swimming pool were well kept and there was also a mini golf course. The owners were friendly and helpful. There was a supermarket just down the road and a train station for the coastal route across the road near the beach. We were very happy with our stay.

“Lovely place, great location”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned from a week at Le Rateau Bavoir, friendly owners, near the beach and not to far to the port and town, also close to a good supermarket.

Pleasantly surprised by the air conditioning and two fans provided which made night time more bearable. We had a lovely secluded terrace to sit at and enjoy meals, it might need a lick of paint here and there but the property was well equipped and comfortable.

The grounds and pool are lovely and we were always able to get a sunbed at any time of day. Wifi in the reception area also useful.
