Hotel Marina d’Argentella

Calvi, Haute-Corse

Simply get away - swim, snorkel, windsurf, hike along the coast or into the mountains, eat proper Corsican food


24 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A peaceful, watery getaway in the arc of a beautiful pebbly bay. Between the mountains and the sea, twenty dramatically winding kilometres of the D81 south of Calvi (or 40 via the less challenging route). This is a great, no frills, place to unwind; to swim, snorkel, windsurf, walk along the coast or into the mountains; play volley ball and table tennis. Each of the simply furnished, spotless rooms (no air-con) among the hillside trees and shrubs has its own outdoor table and chairs. In the relaxed sea front restaurant and courtyard areas, painted in pretty pastels, there’s a bar and a sitting room hung with guests’ paintings. Dorine makes breakfast jams, breads and pastries and, aided by their Moroccan cook, Corsican dishes (the octopus is particularly good) for all-comers, children’s portions no problem – there’s a campsite, with a small shop, next door. Galeria – 18k away – is the nearest village. This is a real, family-run, family friendly, traditionally Corsican summer set-up. Don’t go looking for style, do go for adventure, the lovely Mediterranean setting, the getting away from most of it and the food.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Dorine Grisoli

  • The famous Scandola Nature Reserve and the Gulf of Girolata. An exceptional site, Scandola is a landmark in the Mediterranean, internationally recognized for its marine and land biodiversity.
  • The Fango Valley with its clear stream and pools of smooth multi-coloured stones.
  • The Forest of Bonifato : a beautiful forest of Laricciu pines which are emblematic of the island. Perfect for family walks or swimming in the river La Figarella.
  • Beautiful typical villages of Balagne : Montemaggiore, Aregno, Sant’Antonino, Speloncato, Pigna and Corbara. These are high-perched on the rock, with narrow streets and traditional houses.
  • Calvi’s fortified Genovese citadel offers some magnificent views across the bay to the mountains of Balagne. And the Cathédrale Saint Jean-Baptiste where there are concerts of “Chants Polyphoniques" Corsican polyphonic singing.
