Relais & Châteaux in Corsica, the Island of Beauty from the sea

Our Relais & Châteaux Corsica hotel, ideally located on the northwest coast of Corsica, is a privileged vacation spot to discover the must-see sites of the island of Beauty. By boat, treat yourself to some excursions to admire the splendor of the Corsican coastline. Join, for example, the Gulf of Porto, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its incredible geological features and the richness of its biodiversity. You will be able to admire the Scandola Nature Reserve and its superb red granite cliffs, the Gulf of Girolata wrapped in a green setting and the famous Calanques de Piana whose peaks rise more than 300 meters above sea level. Let yourself be seduced by the Sanguinaires islands off Ajaccio, by the Cap Corse, the bay of Santa Giulia near Porto Vecchio or by the Lavezzi islands, in the south, and their impressive nature reserve.

Unmissable cultural sites of Corsica also from the land

By road, you can also easily reach and visit the great mythical cities of the island from our Corsican castle relay. In Ajaccio, "the imperial city", follow in the footsteps of Napoleon I by visiting his birthplace, the chapel that houses several members of his family and the cathedral where he was baptized. Discover also the old town and the Palais Fesch, museum of Fine Arts. In Bastia, admire the Citadel, the former palace of the Genoese Governors and the numerous churches of the city including the ancient cathedral of Sainte-Marie, built at the end of the 15th century. On the way, stop at the beautiful beaches of the Agriates desert. Then head to Bonifacio, the picturesque capital of Corsica. Perched atop a 60-meter high limestone cliff, this maritime city is a real open-air museum. While walking through its beautiful streets, you will be able to appreciate the Citadel, the hermitage of the Trinity, the church of Sainte-Marie-Majeure and the most courageous will be able to borrow the staircase of the king of Aragon, dug in the cliff side. Let yourself be amazed by the splendor of our remarkable sites in Corsica.
