Where is Hotel Casa Orfea ?



The hotel is in the center of the village, near the castle (historical monument), but also close to amenities (grocery, bakery, newsagent, newspapers shop, post office) and many restaurants (local cuisine, sea food, pizzeria, delicatessen...).


The first beach is nearby (about 100m) and the large one (2 kilometers of white sand) is only a few minutes walk away.

Where is Algajola ?



Algajola is a unique village by the seaside, surrounded by mountains, located in the northwest of the island "La Balagne", known as the "Garden of Corsica". 


Algajola is located between Calvi, 12 km to the west, and Ile Rousse, 10 km to the East.  It is part of the arrondissement of Calvi.


The village is served by a railway line. During the summer season, there is a "Trinichellu" (small train) stop-on-the-beaches service from Calvi to Ile Rousse.
