I stayed at Casa Alta with a friend of mine for four days. It was the only place open at this time of year in Vizzavona and we were quite happy we ended there! The accommodation is of very good quality and the hosts are great.
This is a fantastic place as a base to hike around Vizzavona. The rooms have just been refurbished to a high standard and the house is a great period mansion. The hosts are extremely helpful and they helped us with a number of things (Transport, maps for hiking, cooking and local dishes, general advice etc...). They are great guys, give them a call! If there is anything you want, most likely they will manage something.
The rates are a bit higher than the local average but this definitely worth the money.
Vizzavona itself was very quiet as almost everything is closed from end of September, but this turned out to be ideal as all the path were virtually empty.
Access is easy by train from either Ajaccio or Bastia.
It is also on the GR20. I would assume it is a good place to stay for a nice and comfortable break midway through the hike.
