Getting there

Getting there

Le Maquis hotel lies on the western coast of Southern Corsica, more precisely in the Gulf of Ajaccio, facing the Sanguinaires Islands. With its feet in the water and built against the hill, the property sits between the sea and the mountains along a protected cove with a beach which it dominates.

So close to the French Riviera, Paris and the main European capitals, Le Maquis is proud to offer a stunning refuge in Corsica, “the closet distant island”, the guarantee of a complete change of scenery and a true break from the daily grey skies in the fragrant southern light.
