Corsica has so many hotel options and there is something to suit every taste and budget. Our experts have selected a few favourites from our collection...
Up in the hills of La Balagne region sits Hotel a Piattatella. This intimate hotel commands stunning views of the Regino valley and beyond. With stylish and sophisticated spaces and luxurious rooms, there is as little or as much to do as desired. You may be tempted by the library and games room, as well as a pool area, Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and massage treatments for relaxation. Out and about there are numerous hiking trails, plus the villages and coastline of the region to discover. Evenings can be spent in the on-site restaurant with a pre or post-dinner drink on the terrace, or in one of the fabulous towns and pretty villages nearby.
Facing the sea in the heart of Ile Rousse sits the impressive Hotel Liberata with its unmissable red façade and wooden shutters, all lit up carefully at night to create an inviting and welcoming vision. Inside there is an art nouveau feel matched with style and comfort and the bedrooms feel spacious, with a charming sea view. The pool area awaits along with a Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and small fitness room, plus massage options. There is purposely no restaurant as there are so many choices in the centre of town which is just steps away, as is the sweeping beach.
Once a huge private villa, the gentle conversion to a hotel has created an exclusive and unique place to stay. Overseen by the excellent Marina Hotel just a short drive away, this elegant hideaway looks impressively over the trees towards the gulf. The 13 guest rooms are crisp, comfortable and chic and all individual in shape and size. There is a pool, a small bar and well-tended grounds to relax around. With a concierge service looking after every need and use of the Marinca Hotels’, facilities included too, it’s the ultimate in luxury living.
Situated in the island capital of Ajaccio, Les Mouettes is a carefully restored mansion overlooking the gulf. Bags of character and elegance are present as well as an attentive level of service and prestige. The 21 bedrooms are all slightly different with sea-view upgrade options. The brasserie-style restaurant turns into a gastronomic delight in the evenings. The well-established feel flows throughout and the breakfast terrace in the sea-facing garden is the best start to the day, whether you are set for the pool, beach or sightseeing in the city on your doorstep.
Enjoying a wonderful location near Lac de Tolla in the interior of the island, Artemisia blends into the scenery perfectly. Contemporary in design and making the most of the outlook, the hotels’ lounge bar and terrace all look out onto the greens of the region. The eight comfortable rooms are also thoughtfully arranged to view the beautiful location. With plenty to do outside such as walking, hiking, horse riding and cycling, plus water sports and fishing on the lake, a stay here will certainly immerse you in the mountains and scenery that this region has to offer.
