The little seaside village of Algajola and its superb beach, with l’Heritage circled

Piazza di u Borgu

 

Maison L’Heritage, Algajola, 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 people.            

This delightful little house is set at the end of a tiny square in the heart of the oldest part of the Balagne village of Algajola.  In front is the Piazza di u Borgu, which is just the width of the house itself, and behind is the larger Place du Chateau.

At the top of the stairs to the first floor is the entrance hall, giving onto the kitchen and a shower room.  Through the kitchen is the sitting room, and beyond a little hall, a double bedroom. On the second floor is a twin bedroom with an en suite shower room.  (The ground floor is a studio, only used by the owners.)  The kitchen is equipped with fridge, dishwasher, two ring hob and microwave/grill and there is a washing machine in the upper shower room.  The accommodation is arranged and intended for four people, although there is also a double sofa bed in the sitting room. The stairs to the attic are steep, and perhaps better suited to the young and agile, but we and our grandchildren negotiate them easily!  There is no terrace, but, like the other residents, you can take your meals at your table in the piazza. 

Linen is provided for four people.

You can swim from the rocks (3 min. walk), where the snorkelling is excellent, or from the little town beach (5 min) which is very good for children, having midday shade, or from the long sandy beach (10 min).

There is a frequent train service to Calvi and Ile Rousse throughout the summer, and two trains a day run to Corte, the old capital in the mountains, and Ajaccio, the modern capital, so a car is not essential, but useful if you want to explore more independently.

Algajola is about 15 km from Calvi and 10km from Ile Rousse.  It has a castle and a citadel, a number of good restaurants, pizzerias and cafés, a supermarket, a post office, a local produce store, and a miniature wine tasting shop.
