U sirenu: Feel at one with nature :)

So, this was my favourite accomodation in Corsica! U sirenu is a restaurant, serving solid, good farmers cuisine, and in their garden they have 2 cabins for rent. Those cabins seem to be very new, have 3 double rooms (they shut the rooms you don`t need) and a living-kitchen area. The bathroom was great, with one of those hydromassage showers. Outside of your cabin you`ll have a terrace of your own and a barbecue grill. U sirenu is in the countryside, circa 13 km from Sartène and about 40 km from Bonifacio. It is well situated to enjoy both - beaches and countryside. The closest beaches are Roccapina, about 7 km and Tizzano, about 25 km The owners are nice. Their garden is lovely adapted, with a lot of fruit trees, for example I had a lemon tree in front of the cabin. Beneath the property is a meadow with grassing sheep. There are many lizards and in the evening you can observe the bats flying around. I wasn`t that delighted about walking around in the garden any more after i had seen a long snake meandering there :). There is also a swimming pool. On September 1st hunting season starts in Corsica, and you have the possibility to go hunting or fishing with your hosts. Actually I didn`t go shooting myself :) - but I could watch the guys preparing the just shot wild pigs in the morning before having my breakfast :). They also offer excursion with 4wd cars.

Hotel Lido, Propriano: Corsican Beach Hotel

Hotel Lido is right on the beach, just west of Propriano. It's a 10-minute walk from the center of Propriano. The hotel dates from the 1930s but the owners have invested to bring it up to date, e.g. the bathrooms. The rooms are small but tastefully done. So what if it's not luxurious. As you can see in this photo, the restaurant is right on the beach. The view of the Golfe de Valinco was just lovely.

Location on the beach.

Hotel Kallisté: Ajaccio center hotel

This hotel has only 2 stars, but would deserve 3 in my opinion. It is centrally located in Corsica`s capital Ajaccio. Ask for a quiet room, the hotel is facing a busy street. My room was very quiet though, facing the side street. I think the windows are double glazed anyway, but at least I do not like to sleep with windows closed in summer. The room was rather pleasant, of a good size, with terracotta tiles and nice exposed brick work arches. It was very clean. Staff was friendly.

Casa Magdala.: Ever slept in a brothel before ?

Re-assure yourselves, this is an EX-brothel transformed first into an auberge (de la Scala) and since 4 years into a charming b + b. Lovely sized room giving onto the valley and the river, where you can find a sandy beach!!!Built in the 1890's it served as a brothel whilst the Foreign Legion was stationed in Corte, about 18 kms away. Martine and Philippe have undertaken the renovation with relish but in their living quarters there are still traces of the time where walls and ceilings were all painted red. The house has its own source (spring) for water coming down from the mountains above it, and it tastes good!!! When weather is good breakfast is taken in the garden with all the inherent sounds of birdsong. Very refreshing. The only thing I could say against this b + b is that there is no restaurant close at hand, "Chez Jacqueline" at 2 kms only being open at lunchtime off-season. But there is always the solution of Corte at 18 kms which is no big deal or a Pizzeria/Grill which is situated on the main road N193 close to Omessa at about 9 kms.
The house can take up to 10 people.

Almost given away at 50 euros for the double inc. b'fast.

Our hosts were so full of info for treks in the area, we stayed an extra day and a half, after having our appetites whetted.

Les voyageurs: Bastia center hotel

Les voyageurs is located in central Bastia. I stayed one night there before taking the ferry back to Livorno. They have 24 rooms. There is a really pleasant, airy (apart from the cigarette smoke coming from the receptionist) lobby, furnished in a classic style and painted - like all the rooms there - in a pale yellow. There is also something like a library, which could be also used as a small conference room. The room, well, it looked ok at first sight, had also a plasma TV and a fridge. It had a carpeted floor, what I do not like that much though. The bathroom had nice floor tiles and a bathtub, but after I had discovered some black hairs on the bathroom floor which weren`t my own, I abstained from taking a bath there - it was just superficially clean. The good thing is, that you just walk 5 minutes to the train station and to the harbour. Parking costs 6 EUR per day.

Hotel Bon Accueil.: Small 2* in Porto.

Although the room was not exactly big, it was clean and well decorated. A small balcony with a table and a couple of chairs was welcome for a beer or two while watching the sun go down.

Only 55 euros for the double, the buffet b'fast costs 7 euros extra.

Refuge de Sega: We were happy to reach the hut!

The Sega hut is located on the “Mare a Mare” (Sea to Sea) trail, on the higher part of the Tavignano Valley; having left Corte in the beginning afternoon, we reached the shelter before dusk, and were happy to find it open with a few other trekkers already busy with cooking or installing a tent nearby. After the 720 m ascent from Corte, the shelter was very welcome for the walkers who had not to rig up a tent and could immediately begin to make some food.
The refuge is very basic and looking around, I had the feeling, the keeper has not been here since a few months, or at least, he did nothing to keep it clean.
We slept on the beds with our sleeping bags with open window in the room we chose; there was no propane, and we prepared our dinner on my small camping cooker.
Well, not a luxury place, a bit dirty, but there was a roof, and that was the most important after the 6 hours walk uphill.
The administration of the Natural Regional park of Corsica is responsible for the maintenance of the trails and most of the shelters and huts. It is advisable to contact them if you need information about the huts, or make reservations.
The hut is well located next to the river (picture 1); best was in the morning when the youngsters prepared the breakfast (picture 2), which had been taken in the fresh air, enjoying the mountain views (picture 3) or sitting next to the roaring waters (picture 4).

Open all year; no food; keeper from May first to October first. Reservations are recommended in high season (July-August); there is accommodation for 36 people, in rooms and dormitories for 8. Possibility to camp nearby.

"My" Camping place: Wild camping near the river.

Guide books or flyers from tourist offices say “wild camping” is not allowed inside the Pac National de Haute Corse; I did not meet anybody who is supposed to enforce this rule. . . . . Probably in summer, there may be forest guards or rangers who make sure people camp in designated places only, but at the end of winter, you may not be disturbed if you camp wisely.
“Wild camping” is not allowed for a number of environmental reasons, the major of which is danger of forest fires; not that you may be caught in a fire (this can happen!), but because the camper can be a danger for the forest, and some unaware people do not take any precaution when they camp, make fires, leave glass on the ground, etc. . . they can be a danger and easily set fire in the forest. Another reason, is that many campers tend to bury their leftovers, rather than taking their garbage with them, back to a disposal place. So, don’t camp “wild” in summer, but, in the cold and wet days, you can try; this advice does not prevent you from being “clean” and I am not responsible if you get a fine from the forest administration. . . . ;)
There are many camping places in Corsica, near the villages, and it may be wise to go there, but I do not know how it looks like in summer; myself, I would not like them. . . .

Chez Martinet.: Homely b + b. Sagone.

Nice b + b run by an elderly, but very alert gentleman. We had the studio upstairs but he does have another apartment in the house plus he can let you have another one that would suit large groups (up to 10 p.) In the studio there was a huge fridge with milk, OJ, and other drinks. There was ample butter, jam and cereals and M. Martinet would go down to the bakers and bring back fresh bread around 8 in the morning.
You also have the run of the garden and the large swimming pool!!!!

Out of season (Sept) we paid 60 euros for 2 inc b'fast.

Undoubtedly the swimming pool.

Sanctus Franciscus Niolensis monastery: Why not sleep in a monastery?

Need a spirirual retreat for a few days? A rest from the hustle and bustle of life in city? Just a shelter for the night? You can have all this here, at the St Franciscus convent. Not anymore run (but owned) by the Franciscan order, this monastery is now a “Gite d’étape”, a hostel where hikers and trekkers (and other) can sleep and have a breakfast.
It is a hostel, do not expect some luxury (despite the price!), but you certainly will have quietude. There is a dormitory on the second floor and rooms on the first floor; I took a four beds room with a private bathroom for our small party, and we slept well. No internet, telephone, TV or whatsoever, just a place for sleeping, relax.
Be patient at the reception, you may have to wait for some time before the keeper comes and opens the door after ringing the bell (picture 1). Waiting for the keeper to come, you can have a look around, walk in the “wild” garden (picture 2), or look at the church from different angles (picture 3).
Bunk beds in the room, but I can ensure you can sleep well and late, there, but may be it is also a generation matter (picture 4), and, for breakfast you may use your own stuff and help yourself in the kitchen for preparing coffee, and eat something in a big eating room (picture 5).
There are other accommodation possibilities in the area of Calaccucia, but most of them are open only during season, and I think it is a good choice to sleep in this monastery.

Ercu Hut: Under the Cinto !

Ecu hut is open all year but there is no permanent keeper, even in summer; from time to time, it is provided with a gas cylinder and there is water nearby: these are the only comfort signs of the hut. In low season, it is easy to find a place for sleeping in rough comfort (bring your sleeping bag and a light (roll or “Thermarest-type”) mattress).
It is located in a small valley (picture 1), dominated by the Cinto. It was quite cold when I was there, and snow was still around (picture 2). You just have to open the door (picture 3) and make yourself comfortable.
The hut looks really tiny in the mighty mountains (picture 4). . . A nice day hike is going to the hut and back if you prefer to sleep in Calacuccia or the vicinity; the trail is easy, and cuts short the 4WD road, only used by the shepherds checking for their sheep and the National Park warden.
