Best Haute-Corse Hotels

Northern Corsica Hotels

The sight of sprawling vineyards, the refreshing sensation of a swim in a cool mountain lake, and the soft creak of powdery sand beneath your toes makes Corsica’s dramatic north, a beguiling, sensory destination, which begs to be experienced. The Haute-Corse region of France has a subtle Italian flavour to it - hardly surprising considering Corsica’s just 90 kilometres from the Italian coast - but the locals on this island remain fiercely independent of the French mainland. So get ready to enjoy the beautiful scenery, unique culture, and ever present sunshine of a Mediterranean island paradise, which has escaped over-development, and is ripe for exploration.

Things to see

Calvi may not be the island’s biggest destination, but its wealth of incredible sites means it’s one of the north’s most popular spots. Right up near the top of the list is the Chapelle de Notre Dame de la Serra - a gorgeous, cream chapel that looks down over the turquoise waves of Calvi’s bay. The Citadel of Calvi also has a prime view of the scenic horseshoe of water, from its rocky nest - and you can hike up to the steep walls of the imposing fortress, before looking down over the boats bobbing into the port far below. On your way down from the citadel, you can even stop off to see a house that’s rumoured to be the birthplace of the great explorer, Christopher Columbus. Away from Calvi, a visit to the crumbling Calanche Cliffs lets you see vivid, red rock formations bursting out of the sea. Take the scenic drive near Piana, and you’ll wind past grazing mountain goats, copper-red caves, and spectacular natural rock arches, which sweep across the water’s surface.

Hotels in Northern Corsica

Whether you want all of the 5-star perks - like lake-sized swimming pools and soft, fluffy bathrobes - or simply need a cheap and cheerful way to enjoy Corsica’s white sandy beaches - the hotels in Northern Corsica are as varied as they are numerous. Every taste is catered for – so choose between sumptuous massages - with rolling waves providing the soundtrack - or lively bar patios, where cocktails shakers rattle below the moonlight. Your room will be well served by WiFi, and with a large television, cool air conditioning, and a mammoth bathroom, it’s always tempting to take things down a notch, and spend time relaxing in your gorgeous hotel room.

Where to stay

Calvi’s crumbling citadel may charm you, and Algajola’s beautiful beaches will surely tempt you, but anyone who enjoys exquisite religious architecture will want to stay within reach of Bastia - to visit the Oratoire de la Confrerie de Sainte Croix. This sunflower-yellow Genoese chapel is squeezed between two nondescript edifices, but step inside to be dazzled by its Rococo-style interior - which features a spider-web of roof gold, and a unique black Jesus statue, which legend has it was found floating in the ocean, 500 years ago. You’ll probably notice the sea of grapevines surrounding this port city as you arrive, so head to a local wine bar to sample the rich taste of the sun-kissed grapes for yourself.

How to get to Northern Corsica

Northern Corsica is well served by both air and ferry, with Bastia being home to one of the largest air and sea ports. While Ajaccio is a little further south, the island’s main city hosts its busiest airport, which lets you fly in from across France - and some European destinations during peak seasons. Some train and bus services do run across Corsica, but if you’re looking to stray a long way from the towns and cities, renting a car is your best option.
