Le 20123 information
This fabulous, one-of-a-kind place started life in the village of Pila Canale (postcode 20123, get it?) and, when the owner upped sticks to Ajaccio, he decided to take the old village with him – water pump, washing line, life-sized dolls in traditional dress, central square and all. It sounds a bit tacky, but you won't find many more character-filled places in Corsica. Needless to say, the food is 100% authentic, too: everyone feasts on the same four-course menu, presented orally, built solely from local produce and traditional recipes, and, amazingly, unchanged for 25 years.
