The bay of Favone is a seaside resort on a human scale with a white sandy beach offering family water sports activities to discover the upper side (pirogues, paddle, canoeing) or the lower side (scuba diving) of this Tyrrhenian sea with its unsuspected riches.
Its strategic position at the entrance to the great south of Corsica, will allow you to reach in less than an hour the Bavella massifs with its hikes and its natural pools, Bonifacio with its citadel built on the edge of the cliff, to the Lavezzi islands with its luxuriant terrestrial and aquatic fauna and flora, to Corte the historical capital of Corsica with its mountain lakes Melo and Capitello, to Porto-Vecchio with its famous beaches of Palombaggia and Santa Gjiulia and much more . ..
In love with our mountains and our sea, I will always be avalaible to help you discover my remote island
Ideally located in the centre of the bay of Favone, our flats offer access to the beach without having to take your car.
They are soundproofed, air-conditioned and have a sea view.
It all started in 1927, when Saveria Grimaldi (my grandmother) married Don Quilici (my grandfather) in the small village of Conca (southern start/finish of the GR20) and the couple decided to move down to the plain and settle in a house in Favone.
Don worked as a mule peddler (U Dragulinu) and Saveria, after having continued for a while as a shepherdess (a pastòra), quickly offered food and drink to travellers wishing to stop off on their journey between Bastia and Bonifacio.
The little Café was born… It was very quickly known and recognized all along the eastern coast of Corsica and as far as Propriano under the name of “A Rossa”, nickname given to my grandmother for her flamboyant red hair.
With the arrival of the first holidaymakers in 1936, the establishment prospered and life went on peacefully through the summer seasons.
In the 1970s, the family business was taken over and developed by the two sons of “A Rossa”, Paul (my uncle) and Toussaint (my father).
Today, my uncle Paul is no longer with us and my father having decided to take a well deserved retirement, I am the third generation to continue the adventure of this family saga.
I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you soon, at home, but also on this island which is always in my head and in my heart.
