Isula Rossa is in the very heart of L'Île-Rousse in a characterful building down a lovely pedestrianised lane. It’s about a 5 to 10-minute walk to the owner’s hotel where you can pay extra to enjoy their award-winning buffet breakfast if you wish or swim in the hotel's swimming pool. There’s also space to park your car at the hotel or you may prefer to try and find a public space nearer to the apartment. There’s a little supermarket within a minute’s walk as well as a choice of charming restaurants, pretty shops and cafes. There’s a small covered market every morning in L'Île-Rousse selling lots of lovely local produce such as honey, cheeses, seafood and charcuterie and there’s also a large supermarket on the edge of town, just a five-minute walk away. Within 200m you are in the main square, watching old men play <i>boules</i>, perhaps drinking a coffee or chestnut beer in the shade of the plane trees. The town beach is also great, backed by a handful of good restaurants with wonderful sea views. Walk a little further around the town to another small beach with summer watersports such as yachting, stand-up paddle boards, jet-ski and pedalos plus a diving school a little further. There’s a lovely walk all the way up L'Île-Rousse’s lighthouse with mesmerising views all around you. Keen hikers could also walk from L'Île-Rousse up towards the Balagne countryside inland, following a path up the hill to Santa Reperata and Monticello where you can enjoy stunning views down towards the coast. Hire a car and explore some of the other magical villages of this region such as Speloncato, Feliceto, Pigna and Sant'Antonino, one of France’s ‘<i>Plus Beaux Villages</i>’. The perched villages of this region are full of history, charm and spectacular scenery of sea, forests and rugged mountains. You can also catch the <i>U Trinichellu</i>, Corsica’s characterful little train, which runs between Calvi and L'Île-Rousse (with one or two daily trains continuing onwards to Bastia or Corte and Ajaccio). It stops at various points along the coast including Bodri where you can walk down to the beautiful sandy bay or the beaches of Sant Ambroggio and Algajola, both with a great choice of watersports. The small train can get very busy in the summer months but it’s a charming way to travel. There are a number of beaches along this coastline, accessible by car then foot, where you will find little beachside shacks serving the freshest sea-food, white sandy shores and crystal clear seas that shelve gently and are wonderful for swimming. Wander through the <i>maquis</i>, seek shade under the pine trees or find a rocky shore; you are sure to discover your own piece of paradise along the Balagne coast. Heading east, the rather remote Plage de l'Ostriconi is also spectacular at the start of the incredible Desert des Agriates. Calvi is also a lovely place to visit for the day, either by train or it’s half an hour by car. Enjoy lunch on one of the terraces in the old-town, explore the narrow lanes in the historic citadel with amazing views out to sea or laze on the town’s beach, also home to a variety of watersports. You can also pick up a boat trip which will take you on a tour of the Scandola Nature Reserve on the west coast, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to awe-inspiring scenery as well as rare and protected wildlife.
