Without reservation we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Muredda and strongly recommend the establishment to others. A Muredda is conveniently located on the outskirts of Calvi. This makes it convenient from the airport and points north. There is a fine picnic table, so we brought cold foods for dinner to the table, and enjoyed the view of the Citadel.
The room was clean and stylish. The lamps are beautiful, homemade from driftwood and stone. The sink was a stone bowl I’d like to have at home.
There are only four rooms, so there are few guests, and relatively private patios fronting the warm pool. The rooms are all in a row—I don’t believe there’s really any reason to prefer one room over another.
The hosts are engaging and charming. They speak fluent English, and are extraordinarily welcoming. Florence provided excellent suggestions for sight-seeing and restaurants. The breakfasts are exceptional. Freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade jams (one from a native citrus fruit) and (gluten free) cheesecake were offered once.
I highly recommend Calvi (wish we spent more time) and the A Muredda is ideal. We’ll be back. I’m an avid bike rider and while I did not ride in Calvi, I can tell the environment is perfect for riding (climbing to the north through the small villages). I did go running through the nearby vineyards. By the way, the wine (rose was the only one we tried) from Calvi is very good.
We booked A Muredda after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Only 4 rooms. Only 3 years old and nicely designed. Clean rooms. Excellent breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, bread, pastries, fruit juice served on the pool terrace (weather permitting).
Approx 30 minute walk in Calvi.
I hadn't checked my confirmation properly so was surprised at the 5pm-7pm checkin which turned out to be a minor problem. Tea/coffee making facility in the room would have been nice
An excellent base for touring the area around Calvi. A well equipped air conditioned room adjacent to a swimming pool. The owners went out of their way to make the most of our stay offering advice on local amenities and booking tables at local restaurants- all very good! The breakfasts were served on the terrace ( indoors if weather is poor) and used home- made produce - excellent. Stayed as part of a package with Corsican Places. Highly recommended!
Florence and Franck were perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming and offering great recommendations for places to eat and visit. The accommodation is immaculate. Everything is top quality from the shower and beds in the room to the outside areas, the pool and garden. The breakfasts served on the terrace each morning were absolutely delicious....homemade cakes and jams using traditional recipes and local produce. We couldn't have wished for a better stay.
My wife and I (honeymoon) had an amazing time staying at A Muredda! We are Americans from Boston in our late 20's and we spent 6 nights and truly enjoyed everything A Muredda had to offer. Franc and Flo are awesome, true locals with a ton of great advice regarding restaurants, beaches, vineyards and hiking trails in the area. Frances is an amazing cook, and together they provide a breakfast every morning which is always different and really got every day off on the right foot. Be sure to try her homemade jams (10+ varieties) and cakes which are so delicious! Also, the homemade yogurt is really special.
The facilities are clean, modern and perfect for a romantic couple. The views from the room's private veranda are stunning and the pool is a great way to refresh after a long day exploring the island.
Can't say enough great things about A Muredda, hope to return someday!
