Discovery

Ajaccio and its region are full of treasures: pristine beaches and exceptional nature, historic heritage and lively streets, green countryside, untouched rivers and mountains…

EXCEPTIONAL ENVIRONMENT

Just a few minutes from the hotel are the spectacular Grand Site de la Parata and the Sanguinaires Islands and the great pristine beach of Capo di Feno, two classified nature reserves at the gates of the city, and just a few minutes from the hotel.

The two sites are linked by the Sentier des Douaniers, immersed in the coastal maquis, an accessible walk during which the panoramas are breathtaking.

PRISTINE BEACHES

The Ajaccio Bay is famous for its many fine sandy beaches with turquoise waters. The most beautiful ones are nearby: Capo di Feno, Terre Sacrée, Marinella... to name but a few.

Almost every beach, wild or "domesticated", has its own beach restaurant where you can have lunch and drinks. Upon request, we will prepare a bottle of wine or champagne and appetizers for you to enjoy the sunset with your feet in the sand.

STROLLING IN AJACCIO

Just a stone's throw from the hotel, the Mediterranean at its best: Ajaccio's old port and its fishermen's boats, the Genoese architecture and the colourful streets of the old centre and the colourful market stalls...

Stroll through the streets of Ajaccio and discover its charming boutiques. Let yourself be tempted by an outfit or a coral ornament, find the ideal souvenir to take away: to please yourself or to please others.

Stop at a lively café terrace or at an authentic restaurant to observe a generous and warm city.

Once the sun goes down, a few places welcome night owls to relive party moments. The city's Casino welcomes the more adventurous.

Here again, we will be able to advise you on the best places to go to experience the city like a local, for an evening or a few days' escapade.

CULTURAL BREAKS

The Palais Fesch - Musée des Beaux-Arts, houses, among other things, one of the finest European collections of early Italian and Renaissance paintings.

The Maison Bonaparte, the birthplace of Napoleon I, contains a major collection of personal effects, furniture and historical documents that belonged to the emperor.

The Marc Petit Museum, located in the Lazaret, offers a very fine collection of the school of Corsican painters from the beginning of the 20th century, as well as temporary exhibitions of a high standard.

GREEN COUNTRYSIDE

Discover the green valleys of the Gravona and Prunelli, swimming in the river, the Tolla lake, Bocognano, Vizzavona and the Ese plateau in the mountains, all in the heart of the regional natural park of Corsica.

If you wish, you can take one of our delicious picnic baskets with you. We will also be happy to give you the addresses of the best traditional inns in the hinterland.

DAY ESCAPES

At only 1h30 from the hotel, you can discover :
- The Gulf of Porto, the Calanches de Piana and the Scandola Reserve, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO
- The region of Corte and the interior of Corsica

We will indicate the best stops for your journey, or we will organise an excursion with a private driver-guide or, even better, a cruise from Ajaccio.
