June 2009, the Buns spent a nice week lazing in the sun at the Riva
Bella resort on Corsica.
We flew out on Easy Jet, who operate a limited direct service to the
island from Gatwick, but we had to delay booking anything until quite
late as these flights were not available for booking until the spring.
Riva Bella is in a great setting, protected by a large etang to the
south and a military training area to the north so the long sandy beach
is used only by visitors to the resort.
The resort is well equipped with a shop, restaurant, beach bar (almost
always closed while we were there), free sauna, a full time reception
and a well equipped Spa facility. Oh yes, and llamas lots of llamas.
The bungalows as the concrete bunkers are described were surprisingly
comfortable and well kitted out, no oven so pizza is off the home cooked
The facilities for campers looked excellent.
We enjoyed our time, laying on the beach, swimming in the warm
Mediterranean sea, walking through the trees and generally lazing
around. Going back?.... yes we would. When and if the pound euro rate
