This is a great place to stay. It's just outside the main town and within easy walking distance of the ferry port. Has its own beach, terrace, rooms with balconies & a view of a little island with a lighthouse on it, if you're at the front. Romantic or what? Good to get to Napoleon's town house and the bus station for his country house; the beautiful old town harbour area etc.
I was recommended to a restaurant on the harbour but decided to eat in....as did everyone else staying there! & when the food came, I realised why. There was a menu based on local dishes & the quality and variety of food was excellent, wine was not high priced vintage but thoroughly lovely, drinkable local wine, nice light refreshing, very pleasant.
The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating whilst being thoroughly professional, some with excellent English & if not they knew how to get hold of the ones who had. Room & bathroom were spotless, large bedroom which would be cool in summer using the traditional shutters. Imagine lying in bed listening to the sea lapping on the beach below, wonderful. Disabled access if needed, lifts, 1/2 size billiard table. It's just a great place, go there.
