Is Hotel Bartaccia worth it? Our review
If you’ve decided to spend a family vacation in Propriano, Hotel Bartaccia is a good option.
Set in a wooded, enclosed park, you can enjoy a peaceful view of the Gulf of Valinco, or take a refreshing dip in one of the hotel’s 2 pools.
The hotel offers a rare diversity of accommodation solutions, from single rooms to 14-person city apartments, to suit almost any configuration…
Decoration and atmosphere
Made up of small buildings scattered around the park, Hotel Bartaccia is somewhere between a vacation club, a tourist residence and a classic hotel.
This is reflected in the decor, which is fairly standard but of high quality.
The restaurant’s menu is clearly geared towards sharing, and suits the poolside setting very well.
Our room was simple and classic, with a little touch of decoration in the form of a bayadère motif that woke up the room a little.
The room at the Hotel Bartaccia in Propriano offers a very pleasant and relaxing view. From the terrace, complete with outdoor furniture, you can admire the gently undulating park that stretches out before you, before giving way to the sea and the Gulf of Valinco. Myrtles, lentisks, pines and olive trees…

Propriano’s Hotel Bartaccia offers a varied buffet breakfast .
Enjoy homemade products such as chestnut cake and lemon cake.
The choice of products on offer, both sweet (croissants, pains au chocolat, brioche, 3 types of bread, chia seed pudding and pancakes) and savoury (eggs, goat’s and sheep’s cheese, cold meats (Coppa and Lonzu)) was decent.

EN South Corsica
The hotel has a cocktail baropen from 11 a.m. to midnight, which alongside the great classics offers a number of “innovations” such as the refreshing Herborium (Gin, Mint, White Penja Pepper, Cucumber, Sparkling Water) and the alcohol-free Cosmic Gaden (Cucumber, Mint, Lime, White Penja Pepper, Sparkling Water).
Depending on the weather, you can opt for the A Cena restaurant next to the pool or the U Spintinu inside the dining room, which is also used for breakfast. The menu features Mediterranean cuisine with a focus on local produce, as well as solid cuts of meat (veal chops up to 800g and beef chops up to 1kg!). To share… or not!
The site on which the hotel is located has belonged to the Pianelli family for over a century. It was in 1979 that the parents of the current owners, brothers Jean-François and Frédéric Pianelli, built the present hotel, which has undergone numerous transformations since then, but always with respect for the natural setting. The children took over in 2007 and continue this tradition of hospitality.
