Littariccia
Ranked #13 of 28 Porto-Vecchio B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 June 2009

I would not recommend staying at this place. It is overpriced if you are looking for a backpacking/pension experience, and horribly underserviced and under-amenitied if you are looking for anything else.

It has a spectacular view. Theoretically, the location is amazing (near beaches), but the beaches are not within reasonable or safe walking distance (ie: we tried to walk to the beach and gave up after 35 minutes because it looked like we had at least another 15 to go on non-pedestrian safe roads). Unfortunately, there are also not really any restaurants or evening spots within walking distance, no food or drink offered on location, and no real facilities (at least if you are staying in the Inn part) to prepare your own meal or eat it. There was a lovely little epicerie down the driveway from Littariccia (about a 10 minute walk), but no where to eat your purchases, and one very expensive restaurant attached to another hotel ("l'O") within 10 minutes walking (dinner for 2 + bottle of house wine = approx. 120 Euros). That was it.

The staff of Littariccia was also unavailable and unhelpful (no one there upon our arrival at check-in time), and were curt in most interactions (and we spoke French, it appeared that those who did not had a worse time of it). There are churlish rules signs posted everywhere and printed up in the rooms. The website pictures wildly exaggerate the pool which is very small. The glowing recommendation given in the Lonely Planet guides (which together with the website inspired us to go there) was entirely undeserved.

Another key thing to note - most of the rooms in the Inn part are in the basement. Small slit windows, no real light. Also, no A/C. We were told there was A/C, but in my opinion a small rotating desk fan does not equal A/C. . .

The experience may have been different in the Villas, but I could not otherwise recommend the Littariccia. Certainly to be avoided if you are a traveller that likes walking anywhere - particularly in the evenings.

It may be the cold welcome that turned us off right from the beginning... We arrived at 4pm to an empty/locked reception 'hole' and there was already a couple waiting for someone to check us in. After a short wait, a young lady arrived and "greeted" us saying "you all arrived at the same time?" then literally gave us the order to follow her...hello?!!!? She just walked us to our "apricot" room and gave us some more instructions...after a few minutes, she made us move our car unecessarily...just as rough as the unpaved pathway that brings to the bed and breakfast. She really made us want to leave the place immediately!

The room is cute but definitely not as nice as the pics and description on the website...so is the swimming pool area. There's no light that lead to the room (so be very careful with the stairs at night!). Breakfast was very very minimal: one glass of orange juice per person, fresh bread only for the 1st day (the 2nd consisted of crackers and toast bread that wasn't toasted), one square of butter per person, and very sugary jam, a hot drink...(had we known, we wouldn't have bothered fighting to get breakfast included in the rate: Bilitis confirmed our reservation as 3 breakfasts included daily in our triple room; then a week before our arrival, she reconfirmed saying there's actually only one breakfast included per day. She finally agreed to include breakfast when we didn't give in because it's what the website and original confirmation said)...Anyhow, the room has no TV, no toilet paper holder (the toilet paper is in a box on the floor), no soap or shampoo, no safety deposit box, and does NOT lock. The bed and breakfast is far away from everything: 13km from Porto Vecchio (it takes at least 20mn drive because of the windy roads) and no restaurant or any stores within walking distance. The beautiful view from the terrasse is the only thing worth noting of Littariccia. The area is gorgeous! We'd love to go back but would definitely stay somewhere else.

On the hills over Palombaggia beach, at the end of a path, you get to Littariccia, nice B&B. The view is exceptional, there is a nice overflow pool, nice atmosphere, just go there !
