Barbara and Christian Andreani have lovingly restored a traditional Corsican farmhouse in a natural setting just outside of the village of Patrimonio. This is about as far away as one can get from the St. Tropez-like bustle of nearby St-Florent. They have kept all of the charm of the rustic main house, where they rent two gites. An adjacent annexe, which they built with the same traditional materials, houses four apartments for 2 – 6 people rented self-catering by the week (or for their 'Corsican weekends' 2 nights upwards). Christian Andreani, besides being a well-known photographer, is an expert on traditional Corsican polyphony singing and goat-horn wind instruments. He helps to organise musical events in Patrimonio and St-Florent, and he graciously shares his musical knowledge and talents with his guests.

Useful information: 1-room gites: €255 upwards for 2 nights. Apartments: €380 upwards per week depending on size and the season.
