Pros: Affordable, great location, host is nice Cons: Breakfast could be more robust, awkward set-up (rooms are on the second and third floors); very steep steps make it difficult to carry luggage up (not recommended for elderly or disabled travelers); parking can be an issue; not very trendy or romantic There are very few options for accommodation in Algojola.

We spent a fantastic week at U Castellu and cannot recommend it enough! The rooms are spacious, well appointed, scrupulously clean and with beautiful furniture and comfortable beds. The common areas (a stylish living room, a breakfast room opening on a terrace) are welcoming. Breakfast on the terrace is a delight! Maud is a lovely hostess, personable, attentive, full of...

I don't write many reviews but I wanted to write something as an attempt to compensate the inn keeper. In late October I arrived in the village as a solo traveller. I was looking for a simple place to spend a night or two by the sea. I stayed for a week. I was lucky to have beautiful weather and... More

It was a bit hard to find but it is in the center of town and many restaurants. Then we met Maud who is delightful and we started up the stairs. As seniors this was a bit of a challenge but well worth it. Maud was nice enough to help us with our luggage. We had room #2 which is... More

If your are in north Corsica this chambre d'hotes is a must. Maud has furnished her bedrooms with great style and they are situated above her father's excellent restaurant. A view of the sea, home made cakes for breakfast and a relaxed atmosphere. This village may be busy in the height of the season but outside of that quite delightful.

This small chambre-d'Hotes is an almost hidden but complete gem, located in the small but charming village of Algajola (perfectly placed between, and much nicer than, Calvi and L'Ille Rousse and with a gorgeous beach) off the main route nationale through the area. The BnB is perfectly placed at a small square right across from the citadel which is the... More

Stumbled across this place at 7pm one evening and the lady who runs it was very accommodating, friendly and open to some negotiation on price. The building is quirky, stylish, fun, simple and relaxed. Rooms are great, breakfast on terrace in sunshine with great views. highly recommend.

We located this delightful and somewhat ecclectic accommodation - one of the most romantic that we have experienced in our travels - only 5 rooms and the owners give personal service. (gorgeous proprietor) - it is immedily adjacent/ part of an very old stone complex - with a good (very romantic) restaurant immediatlt below - right on the coast and... More
