Here's a thought. Just go, and see what you find when you get there Image

If you are going to Ajaccio, and are interested in History, have a look at the Napoleon Museum (Napoleon’s family house). Can be a queue in high season, so go early.

We flew into Ajaccio a couple of years back and hired a bike there. Accommodation was booked through Leboncoin. Great flat, brand new, 200 meters from beach. He asked for cash, which was a bit of a worry, especially when he said the flat we had initially booked had been sold!

Your intended area seems to give 360° access to roads which is good. We liked been near a big town as we cooked most evenings in the flat.

They don't like the French, evidenced by bullet holes in french road signs and "French go home" written in English on buildings. They do like the British however.

Roads are great fun, most hazards are 4 legged and leave their deposits on your chosen line round any corner.

When it rains in the mountains, it really rains.

Driving down the middle of the roads at on coming traffic in town is scary to begin with, but when in Rome....

Thanks to both of you for the info. If we make it to Ajaccio the museum sounds like a must. The French animosity thing sounds interesting. Will watch out for that.
