Hotel Des Gouverneurs

Bastia’s long-kept secret spilled: a secluded outpost inside Corsica’s Citadel

The ‘hideaway’ description could have been coined for Hotel Des Gouverneurs. This bastion of tucked-away luxury is in the citadel Bastia – where visitors come to get lost, but find themselves uncovering Corsican culture. Step into classic-meets-contemporary rooms and sophisticated suites, with terraces that hover above the Old Port and seascape beyond.     

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.

The catch of the day

The seas and shores surrounding Hotel Des Gouverneurs inspires its restaurant, Les Dînettes des Gouverneurs. Menus here major on Mediterranean flavours and locally-sourced produce, with a dash of global influences. See where your dinner was fished from by securing a table on the terrace, overlooking the Old Port that lights up as the sun goes down.

Mindful moments

Dedicated to the art of living well, the hotel’s Biologique Recherche Spa is a battery recharging sanctuary. The gentle buzz of the town may be just moments away, but here all is calm – whether you’re dipping a toe into the pool or drifting through steam in the hammam. Treatments here are designed with modern life in mind, with electroporation facials and cutting-edge body treatments that firm, tone and sculpt.

Sea and be seen

With its aquamarine lagoons and cloud-skimming mountains book-ending the baroque city, Bastia and Cap Corse set a postcard-worthy scene. Every turn of the enigmatic Citadel, Terra Nova, tells a story about its history and culture. Today, it’s the place to meet leather craftspeople, artisan cheesemakers, perfumers and artists. Meanwhile Cap Corse is warren-like stretch of turquoise coast laced with tucked away coves, mineral-rich vineyards and lobster nets.

Great location near the old city with charming pool and terrace restaurant.

Looking forward to coming back after the refurbishment to see what they have done.
