Friendly and welcoming host. Super clean and well equipped room. Quiet place with a beautiful exterior. Little touches that make the difference. Decent breakfast.

Guest house located 5 minutes by car from Corte, the environment is very calm and green! The welcome is perfect with recommendations on restaurants as well as the various visits to be made! The rooms are very spacious and well decorated. Breakfast is fairly supplied with quality products (and salt butter, which is rare in Corsica) We recommend this guest house without hesitation.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
