Perfect Corsican Holliday. We spent seven nights at the property using it as a base for a week of day hiking in the nearby mountains. Our host, M. Barthes, and his staff were gracious, very helpful and showed great attention to detail. While our French is not very good, each member of the staff was patient - their English was more than passable. The kitchen turned out exquisite meals daily and on those days that we went out for dinner, the staff's recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend this property.

Fabulous Relaxing holiday ! I spent 4 nights in this lovely boutique hotel with my husband and two small kids and had an amazing time. The hotel is beautifully done up with spacious rooms, very tasteful artwork and a very nice pool. The staff is very helpful and kind, especially with my children that were quite noisy. I highly recommend it and I hope to go back.

A home away from home, wonderful people, beautiful place. We had booked 4 nights and enjoyed a spacious, modern, sleek suite for 2 nights, then a beautiful room with a neat terrasse for the next 2 nights, as well as the great pool and amazing view. The food is very fine and creative, delicious in a word. The weather was very hot, and when we had an airco issue, the Housekeeper was very proactive and informed us right away, which allowed us to make plans for the day. The Owner then offered to compensate for this little trouble in a very professional and generous way. When my husband had to deal with a health problem, everyone helped us in the most friendly manner. The Receptionnist was very comforting and helpful and the Owner was even ready to help us at 6 am! On top of this, I was invited to dinner once my husband had been taken care of. The quality of service provided by the Staff is non-fussy, kind, welcoming. We cannot wait to go back and enjoy the wonderful place and people again, the great food and the incredible views.

Our home in Corsica. We spent a week at the "Palazzu Serenu" 'en famille' (i.e. with 3 young girls). I had organized dinners and sailing trips well in advance with Monsieur Georges Barthes, the Palazzu's friendly owner. Everything was perfect, and everyone made us feel very much at home. The Palazzu is a great place to relax, and to 'come home to' after a day exploring the beautiful beaches and rugged landscapes of northern Corsica. The view of the sunset from the terrace is fantastic. We'll be back! Merci Georges, Cathy, Amandine, Fred, Olivia and the entire 'Palazzu Serenu´ Team.

Small is beyond doubt beautiful. U Palazzu Serenu has been restored to the highest of quality with an incredible design edge, matched by the caring and attentive staff makes this beyond a 5 star visit. Rooms, service, food and of course scenery wonderful and very special. Our first time in Corsica and not our last at this place.

Stunning property. This is an exquisite renovation. The views from the auberge are magnificent every time of day and most special during sunset. My bedroom, overlooked the wonderful lap, pool and the mountains. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable. The gardens were lovely. I loved the modern sculpture. The staff is very professional and helpful. Dinner is served on a beautiful patio with wonderful views. The food was good. The hotel is well located to visit St Florent and the magnificent church in Murato.

?A casually elegant hotel delivered on its promise.? Welcomed by hospitable and helpful staff and the owner-director, we had a lovely suite in this repurposed palazzo. Terrific views, contemporary interior and spaciousness of our accommodation all contributed to an enjoyable experience. We dined in the hotel both days we stayed and the food was excellent. We recommend this hotel to those who want a base for touring the area or are are looking for a place to relax and be indulged.

Top Class Boutique Hotel...We highly recommend this hotel. Our spacious corner room had views to the snow capped mountains and to the sea at nearby St Florent. We also enjoyed the view and facilities in the bar and restaurant. We particularly appreciated our host's friendly welcome and his recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.

Wonderful Stay...We have just spent several nights at this beautiful hotel. Everything was thoughtfully arranged. The welcome was outstanding, and the feeling that you were taken care of went on during our whole stay. The rooms were beautiful. Everything was completely new and modern. The view from our windows was great. We will definitely come back.

One of the finest small hôtels in Europe. This is definitely a special place--located in Corsica's beautiful, rough north, on a hill in the small town of Oletta with a view over the Corsican hills to the sea. Msr. Georges, a Parisean businessman made his dream come true in this small, 9-rooms hotel. The whole hotel is set up with lots of attention to details. The hotel is full of a pieces of art as well as design, never the less one feels rather like in a private home than in a hotel. Things worth mentioning: the wonderful breakfast, served outside with a view to die for. The pool, allowing to swim (approx. 15 m long). The service, always personal, friendly and attentive. The dinner, worth at least one star. Last, not least, the owner himself. Thanks Georges!

Feel like at home. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax and discover Corsica, that's the one! Imagine an old Master's House nicely refurbished, in an old Corsican village on the flank of the mountain, wonderfully overseeing the Nebbiu valley and the sea at St Florent. Not a lot of rooms so that intimacy and close attention to you remains possible. The owner welcomes you and takes care that your stay will be as relaxing as possible, easing your day to day life. That's the concept. Add to this a very attentive and nice crew, a first class restaurant, some very good local wines selected by the owner, a small beauty shop where you can enjoy a relaxing massage and you can imagine that you will feel "at home". We highly appreciated our week-end breaks over there and will come back for sure.

Luxurious comfortable white modern Minimism inside, with flashes of colour from contemporary art. Glorious wild awe-inspiring nature outside, with jagged mountains and aquamarine seas. Both, in their own way, architecturally designed and most welcoming. The senses are calmed and awed by both. U Palazzo Serenu is a place to recharge ones batteries while being well looked after by M. Barthes and his excellent staff. From one hotelier to another, this was the perfect respite. Thank you.

What a wonderful place to stay!We arrived in Corsica to go to a wedding. A wonderful destination wedding and the destination was absolutely perfect for my wife and I. Wonderful mountain roads and beaches. Wonderful restaurants. U Palazzu Serena is a fabulous place to stay on top of a hill with magnificent views. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. They put together a wonderful birthday lunch for 10 of our friends on a days notice! The rooms were modern simple and very very clean. It is a small place of 8 rooms, inside and outside dining rooms, sitting area and bar and pool. We would go back in a heartbeat. It was fabulous. My wife and I have cumulative years of 126 and have been travelling together for 42 years and this place was one of the best we have ever stayed at.

We spent 10 days at U Palazzu Serenu & it was just perfect. The hotel is more like a large house than a hotel, so it feels intimate & relaxed. Beautiful decor, stylish & contemporary, and the best service from people who genuinely care that you are having a wonderful holiday. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a perfect holiday for us & would highly recommend it.

Just loved this hotel. Such a stylish and elegant fit out. Gorgeous spacious rooms. A really relaxed spot with amazing views and a breathtaking pool area. For a very relaxing and very quiet get away, couldn't recomend it more. You will of course need a car to get about. We thought the food at the hotel was just amazing and ate there 4 out of 5 nights - really world class, gourmet offering. We also really enjoyed the quirky, laid back French service (not sure if George is still there but he was super charming) and the subtle cameraderie with other guests. If Corsica wasn't so difficult to get to (from Australia!) we'd be beack in a heartbeat.

Flying in from Paris in the early evening, we got lost on our way up the mountain, so we were thrilled to arrive at U Palazzu Serenu. We were warmly greeted at reception and shown to our large and modernly beautiful room, perfect for our family of 3. We were hungry and ready for dinner which was a delicious meal served in a dining room that had been thoughtfully decorated with contemporary art and comfortable modern furniture. Exhausted from the trip, we returned to our room which was very comfortable and quite accommodating for the three of us. The windows looked out on the mountains and small village. The bathroom was huge and outfitted with excellent bath products. The staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions about where to walk and what to see. We did not use the spa services or the swimming pool which was inviting but we didn't have time. We would love to return.

U Palazzu is a wonderfully restored 18th-century Corsican palace in the charming hillside town of Oletta. The smallest details were thought of and executed to perfection when Mr. Barthes began to create his vision and make one of his dreams a reality. An excellent selection of art is on permanent display at the palace. The staff and owner are truly wonderful people that represent and maintain the serenity of the hotel. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff is accommodating and respectful.

'Amazing meal' We ate at U Palazzu on our last night in Oletta. It was an amazing experience, the place was white and filled with works of art. The food was absolutely xcellent, my husband thought the best he had had anywhere - let alone Corsica. The only downside was that there was no parking at the restaurant, though there is parking nearby. Also it is not very easy to find ad we were glad we had located it in daylight. Highly recommended.

You can find some nice hotels in Corsica, but with a correct price, beautiful house (old local palace), good restaurant with quite atmosphere and also selected products, nice view on the county and the sea : they have the "Plus" that other don't have.
