Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel San Carlu

8 bd. Danielle Casanova, Ajaccio, Corsica, 20000, France

On the edge of the Old Town overlooking the ramparts and sea, this friendly hotel with comfortable rooms is an ideal base for exploring Ajaccio. Rooms have a simple modern decor, and those on the Golfe d'Ajaccio side get an abundance of morning sunshine—the perfect way to greet the day on the Isle de la Beauté. Fun fact: the property was once the home of Napoléon's nanny.
