We lucked into getting two late rooms at the Arena after a frantic search in Corte, which is short on hotels. The rooms were perfectly fine, the buffet breakfast good, and the setting absolutely wonderful, at the start of a magnificent gorge that attracts hikers and sightseers galore. A river tumbles down the valley over plump gray stones: birds sing, tall pines tower all round. In good weather one could have breakfast in the pure air of this tranquil setting: in short, happy clients.
Note to Wobbly Walkers: the rooms are on the parking level, the reception and dining are down stairs which are many but not steep and have railings. Parking is good.
Negetive: the receptionist was a smoker and the area reeked of smoke, but happily she and the smoke were missing at breakfast.
