Calvi and the Balagne area

A stay at Hotel l'Abbaye will offer you the opportunity to discover Calvi and the Balagne area.

Nicknamed "the garden of Corsica", the Balagne area has always been the cradle of the Island of Beauty's natural and cultural diversity.

The Balagne microregion stretches from the Agriates desert to Galeria. Its main cities are Calvi and Ile-Rousse. The breathtaking coastline is dotted with numerous rocky coves and long sandy beaches whose crystal clear turquoise waters are an invitation to swimmers and water-sport lovers alike. Each village of Balagne bears witness to an eventful, prosperous or artistic past that deserves to be discovered. Calenzana, Lumio, Aregno, Pigna, Corbara... to name but a few, all boast an authenticity and diversity that won't fail to cast their spell on you.

Calvi marina

Calvi and its marina


Book a table at one of the numerous restaurants of the marina located a few feet away from the Hotel. This is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner under the stars.
You can then take a leisurely stroll along the winding streets of the old town or enjoy a shopping spree in the city's main thoroughfare, the famous Clémenceau Street.

plage de calvi et sa citadelle

The beach


Its gorgeous Gulf, protected pine forest and long sandy beach make Calvi a dream location. But if the idyllic beaches of this seaside resort attract visitors from all over the world every year, its fireworks are not to be overlooked. A true pyrotechnic marvel accompanied by music and laser lights projected onto the walls of the citadel, this enchanting show recounts the history of the town every 15th of August and will please children and grown-ups alike. All guests having booked a room with a terrace will be able to enjoy the fireworks of the 14th of July and 15th of August from their hotel room.

Corsica is the ideal place for mountain activities.
You will have access to a wide range of leisure activities within an hour of the hotel: climbing, hiking, canyoning, tree adventure park, mountain biking, horse riding, etc. The forest of Bonifato – about 30 minutes away by car – offers spectacular views that will delight hiking and river enthusiasts and is, among other things, the first stage of the famous GR20 hiking trail that crosses Corsica from North to South.
