Algajola, situated along the coast between the Ile Rousse and Calvi, is an ancient Genoese fortress built
on the site of a Roman town. Pillaged by Barbary pirates in June 1643, during the following years, it raised particularly impressive fortifications on the seaward front. Algajola was at that time the second Genoese port of Corsica. From this historical past there remains the Bastion with its vaulted passageway ("E Porte"), the Bastion San Giorgio, the old houses clustered inside the ramparts and the castle ("U Castellu") whose massive walls plunge into the sea.
Pass under the vault and walk a little further on to discover the "U Castellu" guest-rooms. The five rooms with adjoining bathrooms located in an old village-house offer you all the comfort you could need during your stay. On the last floor, the terrace is the ideal spot to enjoy breakfast, look through one of the magazines borrowed from the lounge-library, or else at the end of the day, to taste a glass of local wine!
