Places to stay

Most accommodations in Corsica have long consisted of family campgrounds, rental bungalows and traditional hotels geared at families or couples who wanted to spend a week or two at the seaside or in the mountains. Increased interest in eco-tourism, extreme-sport excursions, routes that map out traditional craftsmen, artisans and of course, wine producers, has expanded the choice of Bed and Breakfast Inns (chambres d’hôtes), Fermes-Auberges and Boutique hotels. Be aware that, outside of major seaside locations (in the south, that’s Ajaccio, Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio), most places close between November and March. Also, many hotels and restaurants do not accept credit cards, but cash dispensers are easy to find in the towns. Below you will find a choice ranging from simple to luxurious – click on each for full details.
