Portland, Oregon, United States contributions 29 helpful votes. So so. The hotel is nothing to get real excited about. It's updated inside.
The rooms are nice. The elevator is very old and makes some odd scary noises. The water pressure in the room was almost nonexistent. The breakfast served was the bare minimum that they usually serve. But the hotel wasnt too far from Chicago so that was nice. Date of stay: June Trip type: Travelled as a couple. Helpful Share. Thanks for choosing our Hotel. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Thanks for your comments. Without comments from our guests, we have no hope of meeting your expectations.

Our check in person was not friendly but the next day front desk person and breakfast lady was very nice. Cap Corse To the north you will find the wild and rugged Cap Corse. Split into two by the Serra mountain range, it is a land of Genoese watchtowers, pretty harbour towns, enchanting perched villages and quiet sandy coves. Move inland away from the coast through pine forests and chestnut woods and you will find charming villages set against a spectacular backdrop of granite mountains.
A wide range of outdoor activities are on offer in the mountainous interior and the scenery will not fail to impress with serene lakes, dramatic waterfalls and tumbling streams meandering through pine clad gorges. Details of accommodation in this region can be found on our website or by calling our team. With stunning cliffs plunging into the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean, and the picturesque villages of Porto and Piana backed by high mountain peaks — this scenery will certainly take your breath away.
The area is best viewed from the sea or explored on foot, and there are a number of spectacular marked trails for keen walkers. Porto Vecchio The beaches around Porto Vecchio could easily be mistaken for those of far flung lands; crystal blue waters lap silver sand beaches backed by pines and high mountain peaks, some say they are the best in the Mediterranean.
There is also plenty to do for the more active with walking, horse riding and water sports on offer. Bonifacio If you are looking for a town full of character, look no further than Bonifacio, perched precariously on a limestone cliff high above the sea, little changed in centuries.
A myriad of narrow cobbled streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants makes the citadel a wonderful place to explore. At its feet lie the luxury yacht-filled marina and more superb restaurants. With the Sperone golf course on its doorstep and the island of Sardinia within easy reach, Bonifacio has a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. Corsican identity. Corsica is an island with a turbulent and fascinating past. Corsicans are proud of their heritage and their deep love for their island is often expressed through their language or their music.
Corsican food could be said to be something of a microcosm of the island itself: somewhere between French and Italian but with many distinctly Corsican flavours unique to the island. Corsicans take their food and drink very seriously and it is quite common for locals to take a leisurely three-course lunch accompanied by a few glasses of Corsican wine. This also means that standards in restaurants are generally high. The earthy style cooking takes its inspiration from the land, with sun-loving fruits and vegetables, maquis-scented herbs, cured meats and cheeses.
With some outstanding exceptions, Corsica is not generally known for its white wines, although its delicious Muscat de Cap Corse, a rich and sweet dessert wine, is very popular with both locals and visitors alike. So just remember to leave room in your luggage for a few bottles! Shopping and markets Corsica offers a great variety of gastronomic delights from maquis-flavoured honey and a wide range of chestnut-based products, to charcuterie and cheeses.
The best place to sample and purchase local produce is at the lively, colourful markets in most of the main towns. If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy a few post-dinner drinks, the larger towns will have a good selection of bars to choose from and even most small villages have a bar where you can enjoy a glass of the local wine.
Festivals and events Corsica is an island of culture with an abundance of music, art and cultural festivals. Many of the villages also hold fetes to celebrate their local crafts and produce, as well as religious or historical events. JUL Les Nuits de la Guitare in Patrimonio The amphitheatre of Patrimonio is the setting for this wonderful festival, drawing stars from the world of guitar be it jazz, flamenco, blues or rock. SEP Rencontres Polyphoniques in Calvi Polyphonic singing is at the heart of Corsican culture and musicians from around the world perform in the citadel at this event.
Corsica is an island abounding in beautiful locations and one of the things we love about it is that it can still feel like something of a secret. While your sun-drenched villa terrace or hotel pool might be the focus of your stay, be sure to explore further afield. From secluded bays to vast oceansprayed clifftops, from the granitic drama of mountain passes to the gentler drama of the maquis-covered hillsides, the spellbinding landscapes of Corsica will leave you with the most lasting impression.
The island is blessed with an incredible diversity of beaches from intimate hidden coves — perfect for couples, shaded and gently shelving beaches — ideal for children — as well as magnificent bays — just right for water sports. Some say Corsican beaches are amongst the best in the Mediterranean and at Corsican Places, we tend to agree! Another beach worth visiting is Ostriconi, a back-to-nature beach at the mouth of the river Ostriconi. The pinnacles and ravines of the red granite Calanches soar out of beautiful blue seas framed by the jagged peaks of Paglia Orba. They are best explored by foot or by boat.
Stacked slabs, towering pinnacles and gnarled, claw-like outcrops of rock were formed by volcanic eruptions million years ago and a subsequent erosion has fashioned spectacular shapes in the rock. The colours are remarkable and vary from charcoal grey to incandescent reds and rusty purples which strike a vivid contrast with the deep green maquis and the cobalt blue sea.
The headland and its surrounding waters were declared a nature reserve in , so wildlife is as varied here as anywhere in Corsica. Cap Corse Often called an island within an island, the Cap Corse is wild and rugged whose history sets it apart from the rest of the island. Enjoy some coastal walks along the rugged northern coast or take a day to drive around the cape and discover landscapes of astounding beauty at your own pace.
Our favourite coastal stretches include the Gulf of the Valinco, Campomoro-Tizzano, and the Gulf of Roccapina further south. These valleys echo with tumbling rivers and rock pools, and sharply sculptured slopes rear from forests of enormously tall Corsican pines — they provide the perfect spots for outdoor activities including wild-swimming, walking, canyoning or rafting.
The Tavignano is home to the deepest gorge on the island whilst the Restonica river leads to two well-known lakes, Lac de Melo and Lac de Capitello. The dramatic Bavella Massif Drive inland from Porto Vecchio high up into the Bavella Massif, an area of outstanding beauty towering the Gulf of Porto Vecchio and whose granite needles and dense forests form one of the most celebrated Corsican landscapes. The views from here are genuinely jaw-dropping and the opportunities for walking or outdoor pursuits of all kind are aplenty.
Why not take things at a slower pace and relax by the crystalline rock pools of Purcaraccia or the waterfalls of Piscia di Gallo? Fortress town of Bonifacio This majestic old town sits on a limestone throne at the far south of the island and is one of the most spectacular towns in the Mediterranean. The citadel walls and ancient houses appear to rise seamlessly out of sheer cliffs that have been hollowed and striated by the wind and waves. Beneath, an inlet about metres wide forms a natural harbour and a series of grottoes and coves.
For the best vantage points, walk along the cliffs to the Pertusato lighthouse and admire the views back towards the town or jump on a boat and take in the beauty of the cliffs from the sea. Lavezzi islands Situated between Corsica and Sardinia, the archipelago of Lavezzi is a sublime sight and something of a paradise. The 10 small islands boast a number of secluded beaches, coves and naturally formed pools and the magnificent underwater offer opportunities for some of the best diving on the island.

Standing proud on its headland, any visitor to Calvi must visit this 13th century fortress, which has lost none of its fascination over the centuries, and remains a remarkable example of Corsican architecture and cultural heritage. The best way to see the rest of the citadel is to simply follow the ramparts, which offer some magnificent views across the bay to the mountains of la Balagne.
Calvi is reputedly the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, born during the Genoese occupation of the town, the remains of his house can still be seen today and are commemorated by a plaque in the citadel and statues scattered throughout the town. The citadel itself is a magnificent backdrop for the red-tiled town below, with its palm tree-planted harbour and lively restaurants lining the Quai Landry, a promenade which links the marina and the port. An impressive art exhibition also takes place in the citadel from June to September.
