Providing a quiet and comfortable haven right beside the sea, a stay at Hôtel Santa Vittoria will allow you to combine an idyllic beach break with a charming and authentic experience of Corsica.

Located in the small, sleepy and ancient fishing village of Algajola, Hôtel Santa Vittoria is a charming and intimate family-run hotel, boasting a fantastic location on the waterfront, just a short stroll from the beach. You'll experience wonderfully friendly service throughout your stay here, attributed to the cosy setup, with the hotel consisting of just 15 rooms. In addition to its lovely waterfront location, guests will have the option of hopping on board the coastal train which runs through la Balagne, making it a great base for some exploration further afield; something also achieved by opting for our recommended car hire.

Each of the 15 rooms on offer throughout the hotel is presented in a smart and modern fashion with decorative artworks on the walls and with cool, tiled bathrooms to freshen up in each morning. The rooms are kitted out with all of those appreciated modern comforts, such as television, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi, aiming to make your stay at the hotel as comfortable as possible.

The hotel also boasts its own restaurant, with a beautiful outdoor terrace proving the perfect spot to eat breakfast and start the day, enjoying unbeatable views out across the coastline and the sea. The hotel's location then makes it ideal for strolling around Algajola, absorbing this small village laden with Corsican charm, or alternatively you could walk to the beautiful beach - you'd be forgiven for spending many days of your holiday lazing here!

In addition to enjoying the charm of Algajola, the hotel's location makes it great for exploring the rest of Corsica, whether that's by the coastal train or by hire car. Don't miss out on a day trip to Calvi where you can enjoy walking around the historical citadel, or on another day pay a visit to L'Ile Rousse, with this laid-back seaside town the perfect place to grab a delicious seafood lunch.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

As you follow the coastal road towards Calvi, you reach the charming little village of Algajola. With a long stretch of beach and a quaint village square, it is the ideal place to relax, unwind and dodge the crowds. The village is a real treasure, remaining calm and tranquil even in the height of the summer and the atmospheric Citadel enhances its Corsican charm with tales of marauding pirates from medieval times.

BEACHES

Aregno
This beach is a kilometre-long curve of coarse sand beneath a picturesque Genoese citadel. During the months of July & August, the beach is extremely busy, but out of high season, you can have this beach pretty much all to yourself! There is a good selection of cafés, restaurants and water sports.

FESTIVALS

Foire de l’Amandier in Aregno
Since 1997, Aregno has played host to Corsicas only Almond festival. Held at the beginning of August, nut farmers and their families travel from all over the island to take part in the cooking competitions.

Foire de l'Alivu in Montegrosso
Around 10,000 visitors honour the olive in July, in a delightful olive grove setting with exhibitions demonstrating olive production over the years and artisans selling refreshments and local produce. 

Festivoce in Pigna
Held early August, this festival provides a forum for long nights of traditional a cappella singing in the outdoor amphitheatre.

Rencontres Polyphoniques de Calvi
Polyphonic singing is at the heart of Corsican culture and musicians from around the world perform in the citadel at this event.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Le Chariot Restaurant
A must visit restaurant in Algajola. With such an amazing Mediterranean feel, and serving some of the best pizzas you will find on the island.

Pigna
The pretty blue shuttered village of Pigna is also well worth a visit, home to some fabulous craft shops and the irresistible setting to the Festivoce, a festival of Corsican polyphony.

Strada di l’Artigiani
Follow the craft trail “Strada di l’Artigiani” through the villages of la Balagne and sample the local specialities en route                                                                                                                                        

Visit Calvi Town & The Citadel
Calvi Towns social life focuses on the many restaurants and cafés of the quai landry which is a large seafront walkway that links the marina and the port effortlessly. To get the best possible feel of the town, this is the place to be! A walk up through the narrow passageways off quai landry will take you to rue Clemenceau where you will find an array of restaurants and souvenir shops plenty. Further walking will present the Ste-Marie-Majeure, built in 1774.

Calvi – L’lle Rousse by train
This regular service allows you to explore the coastline to the east of Calvi, stopping at all of the beaches en route, which means you can jump on in Algajola and travel in either direction! The line built in the 1880’s and 1890’s hugging the coast is undoubtedly one of the worlds most scenic railways. The complete journey takes approx 50 minutes, and depending on the time of year travelling, there are between 5 and 10 return journeys a day.
