TripAdvisor Reviews Auberge de Ferayola Calvi
Travel Blogs from Calvi
The ship anchored in the bay and we went ashore on the ship's tender boats. In the morning it was reasonably calm, however getting back in the afternoon was a different story, boat rolling from side to side, a bit scary actually. Calvi, a charming island south of the French Riverina, the bay surrounded by mountains, so picturesque. The first real recorded history of Calvi was approx. 1000 BC, when ...

We walked across the street for dinner tonight. We wanted fried calamari and a pizza. The guy who drug us into the restaurant assured us we could get calamari.

... to the ship. We were running a bit late and were the last to board before we set off. Calvi and surrounds were quite modern with a lovely feel. It is the type of place that I could stay for a week or so and relax. Interesting sidelight - when the French first took over the island (I think about the early 1900's) people were banned from speaking or writing Corsican. Anyway our tour guide can speak it and she sang a Corsican song for us. It was a lovely touch. We both ...
