A few minutes from the hotel is the Parata and the Sanguinaires Islands and the vast wild beach of Capo di Feno, two listed natural reserves right on the city's doorstep.
If the mood takes you, we can make up a delicious picnic basket as well as a beach kit (parasol and towels) or even an aperitif basket for you to take in the sunset over a glass of wine or champagne.
The Gulf of Ajaccio is renowned for its many sandy beaches and turquoise waters, including:
• A few minutes from the hotel: Barbicaja, Marinella, Terre Sacrée and Capo di Feno beaches
• 30 minutes' drive: Ruppione, Mare e Sole beaches; 1 hour away: Cala d'Orzu beach
We can point you towards the best seaside restaurants ("paillottes") for indulging in grilled fish and seafood, with your feet in the sand.
The old port of Ajaccio and its fishing boats, colourful alleyways, vibrant terraces, and the eye-catching market stalls of the old town and its Genoese architecture are definitely worth a visit and are easily reached by foot or bicycle.
We will introduce you to the right places; from the well-established to those reserved for insiders, where you can purchase delicious regional products or dine or enjoy a drink with your family or friends.
Take a half-day trip from the hotel to the heart of Corsica's regional nature park: the verdant valleys of Gravona and Prunelli, riverside walks along Lake Tolla and mountain hikes to the Ese Plateau.
We can prepare delicious picnic baskets or recommend the best traditional inns in the hinterland.
