Bed and Breakfast near Patrimonio, Corsica

by Niki0972 about U Castellu Piattu

Very beautiful bed and breakfast in the middle of nowhere... but still conveniently close to Cap Corse, Saint-Florent and the Balagne to go sightseeing or to go to the beaches.
The modern house stands on top of a hill amidst the vinyards of Patrimonio. There are 5 cosy rooms, all with their own private bathroom with shower. There is a (not heated) pool and when the weather allows it, breakfast is served on the terrace with an amazing view.
The hosts are very friendly and are willing to help you plan your sight seeing trips or the rest of your visit of the beautiful island of Corsica.
On most days, the hostess will cook an authentic Corsican meal (table d'hôtes). You should ask in advance.
We stayed here in September 2007 and payed 80 euros for a double room, breakfast included. For the meal we payed 22 euros per person (3 course meal, wine included) + Amazing view
+ Swimming pool
+ Table d'hôtes (home cooked 3 course meal in the evening)
- The owners have two (very friendly) dogs who tend to beg for food at your table.

Needless to say that our dinner was SUPER......staff was very friendly and helpful......a place I can recommend to fellow-travellers.

Saint-Florent de Corsica

by sandravdp

The lovely place Saint-Florent is a grown out fisherman' s village.

It has fishing boats, big yachts, a peer, many terraces with great seafood and some nice shops.

At the old market place old people still play the ball game ''Jeux-des-Boules".

Again Saint Florent!

"Old city - a seaside view"

Driving for an hour on a very curvy but beautiful mountain road from Ile Rousse toward Bastia (second largest city in Corsica), you will come to this dreamy town, Saint Florent. Its really a beautiful town and one can have a nice and lazy stroll around the town. One of my favorite and unforgettable towns in Corsica and I never fail to visit it.

"A cozy town"

One can walk a half-way up toward the Fort park and find this nice square. Its an area one can have a cup of coffee and look into small shops.

"Please come here!"

One can have a magnificent sea-view from here. You walk up from the city center to this park (only a 5 minutes' walk). You never miss it.

One can breath fresh air, look widely the blue sea and the old town of Saint Florent.

Corsica in march

by kaygoestoparis

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on going to Corsica in late March and was wondering...

1. Does anyone know what the weather is like at this time of year? and

2. Where would be the best place to stay if I'm looking to do day hikes and stay in a cheap hotel rather than camp?

Thanks so much! Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Re: Corsica in march


>>>1. Does anyone know what the weather is like at this time of year?

We have been in Corsica at this period of the year and the weather was fine, from warm to mildly hot. However, this is spring and showers are possible. They should not last.

>>>2. Where would be the best place to stay if I'm looking to do day hikes and stay in a cheap hotel rather than camp?

The whole west coast is fine for day hikes: Saint-Florent, L'Ile-Rousse, Calvi, Cargese.
I would avoid the south though it is also very scenic but it is very touristy (Propriano, Bastia)

Re: Corsica in march

by kaygoestoparis

Thanks so much - that helps a lot! But when you mention Bastia, the city is in the north, no? Is it still a more touristy area?

Re: Corsica in march


Sorry, I wrote Bastia but meant Bonifacio! Slip of pen!

What route to take in Corsica?

by maya33

I will be in Corsica with my boyfriend for two weeks this summer and would like to know which route to take.

1. Ajaccio to Bonnifaccio

2. Calvi to Ajaccio

3. Bastia to Calvi

We want a mix of beautiful beaches, pretty towns and villages and a chance to go into the mountains for two days.
Any advice is much appreciated!



RE: What route to take in Corsica?

by Iowa2

We took the small train from Bastia to Ille Rousse. Calvi is the next town. The train transfers at Ponte Vecchio in the mountains.

Bastia has a nice old town with good restaurants on the harbor.

Up in the mountains, back down to the coast the views are spectacular. There are many small old villages. The train driver even stopped so that we could photograph them.

We had every intention of going to Calvi, but when we saw the beach at Ille Rousse, we just stopped there. (my homepage photo)

Your mentioning of "route" implies that you will be driving. The highway follows a similar path to the railroad.

RE: What route to take in Corsica?

by Cerise22

1. The main road is N196. About 2hrs30 minutes driving time. If you have time to amble, take the coast road D55 through Porticcio, Serra di Ferro, with a little diversion to Porto Pollo and reaching the main road just before Propriano.

2. The fastest option is the N197 Balanina to Ponte Leccia and then the N193 to Ajaccio. Again a good 2hrs30 min. plus possible hold-ups due to traffic through Ile Rousse.
You could again take the coast road option but considerable road works between the col de la Croix and the col Palmarella mean slow-going and possible punctures. Very spectacular though.

3. Fastest, although it doesn't look it from the map, is the N197 Balanina to ponte Leccia then the N193 to Bastia, about 1hr45, plus possible traffic jams south of Bastia. If you're looking for interesting views, take the col de Teghime to Saint Florent then drive through the Désert des Agriates.

NB. You might well in season be slowed down by camping cars and the like.

May I make a plea to those driving in Corsica: Even in high season numbers of cars on the road are fairly low. It is easy to avoid long lines of traffic by allowing faster-moving vehicles to overtake as soon as there is an opportunity, i.e. we know you don't know the road so will tend to go slowly round the corners, but then please don't pick up maximum speed as soon as there is a straight bit. Thank you all in advance.
