We went to Ajaccio to connect with family of a close friend. Ajaccio is not much of a touristy destination, and if it hadn't been for the family visit, we would have stayed at one of the areas between Bonafacio and Ajaccio.
The Hotel Cala di Sole is north of downtown Ajaccio by a couple miles, but without the hustle and bustle of the city. Pluses: it has a wonderful pool, and its own beach, but best of all you can get seaside rooms where the small sea waves break on the rocky beach just at the end of your patio. Nice sound at night. The area seems safe and the hotel isolated enough to feel comfortable having the patio door open.
The rooms are simple, a little sun-bleached, yet clean. The staff quiet but helpful. The breakfast pretty straightforward. The hallway showed a few signs of water stains on the ceiling but there were none in the room. At 187 euros, we decided that Cala di Sole was fine to stay but not a great value.
We headed onward from here crossing the central part of Corsica to Bastia. All of the trip advisors who encouraged us on that route, thank you! That was impressive and we were thankful we could hug the inside lane going up and over the mountains.
To travelers who are headed to the Ajaccio area, the Cala di Sole gets a safe thumbs up.
