Bastia’s long-kept secret spilled: a secluded outpost inside Corsica’s Citadel
Rise and really shine with a breakfast that marries American buffet favourites with local, organic produce and homemade cakes. Or enjoy a weekend lie-in with the promise of the monthly Sunday brunch. At night, Les Dînettes des Gouverneurs transforms into a terrace tapas restaurant, for gastronomic adventures and boat spotting. Meanwhile, the convivial bar and lounge are made for cocktails and conversation – with a menu that’s big on small batch gin and rum.

When talk turns to exploration, Hotel Des Gouverneurs puts you in the right place to strike out into the beautiful baroque streets of Bastia. To cover more ground, take up the hotel’s offer of eco-friendly electric bikes, stopping off for coffee on Market Square and visiting the latest exhibition at the Governors’ Palace. Further afield, but still close by, the Cap Corse landscapes are bewitchingly beautiful. This is the place to don hiking boots for exploring trails into the rocky hills and creeks – then kick them off at a secluded cove. Plan your route well, and you could enjoy a lunch of boat-fresh fish in Maccinaggio, accompanied by locally-produced wine.
Enjoy your stay!
