Situated just across the road from the beach with restaurants on your doorstep and the main hustle and bustle of the town just a 200m stroll,  L’Amiral is all about location, location, location. 

A collection of sleek 1 & 2-bedroom apartments, with comfortable, high standard furnishings, all individually laid out. Arranged over three floors, most of the apartments have wonderful sea views coupled with plenty of outdoor space that has been built so you can truly indulge in the Corsican sunshine and enjoy al fresco dining. Top quality Italian furniture, mood lighting, open plan layout and splashes of colour make the apartments very contemporary with the use of bright whites and neutral greys to give the apartments a light and airy feel. 

The owners want to offer the services of a hotel, whilst giving their guests the independence of self-catering apartments, so you can enjoy a daily towel change and freshen up as well as a change of linen weekly. All the apartments have the added bonus of sharing a heated swimming pool, and secure garage parking gives you additional peace of mind should you wish to hire a car.

These five recently-built apartments are located just a skip from L’Ile Rousse beach and a short walk from the old town with its excellent local shops and daily morning market offering fresh produce. The fine yellow sand of the beach, combined with the vast choice of restaurants provides the perfect setting for a relaxing day by the water, and still just minutes away from your apartment.

With superb views, ultra-contemporary interiors, high-quality facilities and daily cleaning, they provide the perfect escape to a luxury holiday in Corsica.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Named after the islets that blush a deep russet red in the sunset, L'lle Rousse is a laid back seaside town with a central square, lively cafés, restaurants and ice cream parlours. With one of the warmest microclimates in Corsica, thanks to the sheltering Balagne hills that surround the town, and three gently shelving large beaches in close proximity, L'Ile Rousse is an ideal spot for a summer holiday.

BEACHES

L’lle Rousse
The town beach of L'Ile Rousse can be very busy in the peak of the summer and has excellent facilities with cafés, restaurants and sunloungers lining the beach. If you're prepared to wander a little further, you can generally find a quiet spot. Another benefit of its size is that it is generally patrolled. It's a fine yellow sand beach and the water is a gorgeous clear blue. There are good opportunities here for water sports.

Bodri
Just west of L’Ile Rousse, Bodri Plage is an unspoilt beach, a walk through the maquis and over the railway line. The walk is worth it, as the beach has almost white sand and a turquoise sea.

Baie de Giunchetu
A short walk further west, around the rocky Punta di Genebre you will find this beach. It is slightly less picturesque, but larger.
