Very remote but good for a beach vacation
Posted Jun 26, 2013
We stayed here 5 days in June 2013. It was quite a long drive in from the main road on a twisty, curving road, like so many in Corsica--you need to be extremely careful driving all over the island as it is replete with hairpin turns & the locals think nothing of passing on them. It is not for the faint of heart. We wondered all the way in if we had made a huge mistake--there was absolutely no sign of water anywhere, only arid hills to both sides. Then you come around a bend & voila! the Mediterranean! The resort is situated on a nice wide beach inthe middle of a quiet bay. Rooms are arranged with perhaps 10 or so on each side of a one story building, w/5 or 6 buildings arranged to take advantage of the view. I was initially disappointed in the quality of the rooms, particularly compared to the other 4 seaside hotels we stayed at while circling the island; they are very spartan & simple w/a bed, nightstand, desk & TV we never turned on. No decoration whatsoever. The bathroom was equally utilitarian. Sliding glass doors led outside. However, we spent little time in the room, & the beautiful location made the place grow on us. It's the type of place to spend a week at the beach & never really leave. The one restaurant overlooks the water & serves 3 meals a day but ours included only a breakfast buffet that was very good. An adjacent beach bar open to 1 a.m. was good for a snack or a drink. Though we spoke French we found English was spoken by some. 40 min to Ajaccio/airport.
