Relais Cote des Nacres, Corsica
**(Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)
Solenzara, also known as Sari-Solenzara, is situated on the western coast of Corsica – a particularly privileged position with access to both the Bavella Mountain and the Gorges of the Solenzara River. With its mountainous geography and high altitude it is great for a true Corsican hiking experience. You could also venture up into the Aiguilles de Bavella, the Bavella Needles, and into the Parc Naturel Régional de Corse.
Another mountain, Monte Santu (Santo), leads down to the rugged coastlines to white sandy stretches and sprawling panoramas.
Visitors to Solenzara often choose the town for its favourable location with regards the Bavella Mountain. You can drive to the peaks of Monte Santu which are just outside the confines of the town itself (via the D68) or, alternatively, head for the Bavella Needles via the D268.
By renting a car the unspoilt island of Corsica really comes into its own. The romantic city of Porto Vecchio is less than an hour south on the N198 or, if you'd prefer to experience the famous seafood of Aléria, head north to the beautiful Mare e Stagnu beach.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
