art and history under one roof

oNNNAon 26/11/2016 22:12

A while ago I stayed at a charming place in the village of Muro, Corsica. Its magical atmosphere took us back right to the 16th century when the palace was originally owned by the Count Giuliani.

This is Casa Théodora, a boutique hotel hidden in the hills near the city of Calvi overseeing the rough coastline. Even if only in past people were regularly kidnapped on the seashore by the pirates of the mediterranean, Casa Theodora still radiate today the sense of safety to the guests.

I remember entering the house and suddenly being struck by the beauty of the frescos on the ceiling painted by the owner Alexandre Gianninelli. After a quick glance I spontaneously I said to him: “Your are like a little Michelangelo Buonarroti!”. Alexandre smiled at me, raised his eyebrows and replied: “Why little? I’m like the big Michelangelo!”. This is what I treasure about an artist. The strive for greatness without compromising for good enough.

And this is what Casa Théodora is about. It reflects the quality of Alessandro’s art works, enthusiasm and unique lifestyle. But it’s only half of the story. His wife Mirjam meticulously ensures that every details is taking care of. She is so passionate about food that it’s still fresh in my memories the scent of her baked croissants in the morning.

I stayed at Casa Théodora only three days. Yet, its melange of history and art of turned our time into a mystical experience.

Nice ... but

Very nice renovated old house from the 16th century. Nice feeling of being transported in the past. Very nice paintings and authentic decoration.

Though, the hotel is more a b&b, it is a bit overrated and really overpriced.

The owner is very talkable and have many stories to tell ... on many people ... not always positive stories ...

Be also aware that dining at the Casa Theodora is not recommended... or book quite in advance and ask for the menu. We asked for dinner mid-afternoon on the same day; we've been told that menu would be a surprise and would cost 35€. The surprise was a lasagne with a few vegetables and a piece of home made apple cake. Probably the most expensive lasagne I ever ate. And the wines are also overpriced compared to restaurants in the region.

Conclusion, nice trying the place, not sure i'll go back.

Really average. Won't go again.

• The house is old, apparently from a doctor (as the name of the place testifies), well maintained in the old style: everything is arranged to make comfortable rooms (really old charming style, so do not expect stylish Novotel with standard furniture), well cleaned with individual airco in each room (hot & cold).
• The breakfasts were very good.
• We asked the owner if it was possible to have a dinner at arrival (late, around 9pm), she managed to get it organized and mentioned it was 35 EUR/pers for the menu of the day, without drinks. We were OK as we had a long drive. The meal was really not OK: cold inside, rough, overheated and dry. Worth 10 EUR/pers. Wine also oversold at 35 EUR, while the same Columbus bottle is at 25 EUR in a nice restaurant. Avoid meals but breakfast.
• Myriam, the owner is very intrusive and often complaints on others: on her own staff (her niece L., her daughter A. and her son S.). Also about other hosts, so ... probably also about us to other hosts
• She welcomed us with a sense of humour which is not always easy to decrypt. Being quite intrusive in guest, e.g. at breakfast, it made our stay quite unpleasant as her remarks made us uncomfortable.
• I would suggest she focused on the guests, treat her staff at their value. Being demanding with others initially require showing the example and being demanding with ourselves.
• Superb art work in the interior: frescos, paints, … sometimes a bit kitsch but this is stylish still.
• Almost no parking space in front. Need to go just 200m away close to the church: not a big deal.
• Do not count on the swimming pool: kind of fake teaser.
• This is overpriced.
• I do not recommend. It was a fifty-fifty experience.

All that glitters is not gold..

Beware, this is a mediocre B&B masquerading as a luxury/boutique hotel. Yes, there's some quirky artwork on the walls, some of it is even quite good. But don't be fooled, there are several things that detract from this B&B. For instance, no fridges in rooms, there is no 'terrace' just a basement courtyard, the village is ok but run down and with no amenities, the hotel is partially unused(rooms appear to have literally been taken over by vines), shutters are rotten, the bathrooms are very basic, the swimming 'pool'...well that's a small tub in the basement. Our hosts were fine and hardworking, friendly and knowledgeable. It's just that the place itself is fake, and is certainly not a high end hotel. If I was walking in the hills, and stayed there for a night or two as B&B accomodation, with prices to match-ok. But this is being marketed and sold as a top class hotel, and it certainly isn't that. Oh, and if you're staying there with a car- the roads are quite tricky, and parking in the evenings can be a nightmare. Really, not a great place at all.

Delightful 16th century palazzo: now a couples-only boutique hotel

From summer 2015, the Casa Theodora is being run as a couples/adults only hotel exclusively for customers of Simpson Travel. Lovingly restored by its owners, almost every wall and vaulted ceiling is painted in colourful frescoes. The hotel’s six rooms/suites, spread out over three floors, are individually decorated using tasteful colours and furnishings. Each is equipped with tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. Good quality toiletries are supplied and irons and ironing boards are available. There are no minibars, but the office area off the ground-floor lounge contains an honesty bar with a fridge full of reasonably-priced cold drinks, including bottles of wine, local beer and soft drinks. Beneath the hotel, a small heated indoor pool has been built into the former wine cellar. Pool towels and towelling slippers are available for guests wishing to slip into the pool after a busy day exploring.

Breakfast is taken on the small outside terraces or in the upstairs salon. The offer comprises cereals, bread, croissants, pain au chocolate, yogurts, fresh fruit, fruit juices, generous supplies of tea and coffee, and a different cooked breakfast most mornings: scrambled eggs with bacon or salmon, boiled eggs and toast, omelettes, crepes and “full English”. Tea, coffee and freshly-baked cakes or biscuits are served in the lounge every afternoon. Evening meals are prepared and served by the hotel’s helpful live-in concierge team, Julie and Shaun, on two days a week. Guests drive to neighbouring villages or to the larger coastal towns of Calvi or L’Ile Rousse, to eat out on the other evenings: there are no restaurants in the village, and none within reasonable walking distance of the hotel. Menus at the local restaurants are dominated by meat: wild boar, lamb, goat, veal and steak, served with potatoes or pasta. Vegetarians might struggle, although the traditional Corsican vegetable and bean soup served with coarse bread is almost a meal in itself. the nearest restaurant, The nearest restaurant, the Sol e Luna in the village of Felecito, does not take credit cards, so make sure you have sufficent cash as the nearest ATM is in L’Ile Rousse a 30 minute drive from the hotel.

The hotel’s remote location and the number of steps up to and within the building make it unsuitable for guests with limited mobility or for guests who enjoy strolling out to local restaurants for lunch and dinner. Car hire, included as part of the Simpson's package to the Casa Theodora, is essential as there is no regular taxi service, bus service or cycle hire in the area and, apart from a daily bread van and weekly meat van, the village of Muro has no shops or other facilities (though a bar was being constructed next door at the time of our visit.) The nearest supermarket and pharmacy are 13k away in Lumio. Walking to either of the neighbouring villages can prove challenging as there are few footpaths and limited refuge from oncoming traffic due to the number of walls lining the road.

Simpson Travel provides very clear driving directions to the hotel which is set on the lengthy one-way street through the village. Guests are advised to park in the village square and walk the final stage of the journey as there is limited parking in the street directly outside the hotel. Simpson Travel is working with the hotel’s owner to secure more reserved parking spaces, so this should not be an issue for future guests. We found some of the local drivers freely ignore the one-way system: it is wise to proceed through the village with caution!

I enjoyed the peaceful mountain location with red kite circling overhead, and I would like to have been able to spend more evenings relaxing in or near the hotel, after a busy day spent exploring the area by car, instead of having to venture out along the narrow, winding roads again to find a restaurant.
