The Residence



The Residence Sognu di Rena is a stunning property located in Corsica. The residence is located very close to the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, with a 17km stretch of sandy shoreline and a private marina very close by. Guests at these apartments are spoiled by magnificent views of Moriani Beach and the palm, cypress and olive trees of the surrounding gardens.

The second largest city of Corsica and 40km from the residence, Bastia is a vibrant area packed with bars, eateries and local culture. The shops and amenities of San Nicolao town centre are just 500 metres from the Residence Sognu di Rena, allowing you to come and go with ease.



This typically Mediterranean property comprises 109 stylish apartments. The Residence Sognu di Rena fits with its surroundings of scenic, landscaped gardens and ocean views. Palm trees, cypress trees and olive trees cover the green grounds around the apartments.

The property provides guests with direct access to the nearby beach and also has its own private outdoor swimming pool which is lined with sun loungers and parasols and also offers a shallow pool for children. Guests are able to enjoy the terrace bar as well as indoor facilities and activities like table tennis.



All cottages come with: - Fully equipped kitchen with a fridge-freezer, 4 ring electric hob and microwave - Comfortable living room - Spacious terrace - En suite bathrooms


Board Options

All of the apartments at the Residence Sognu di Rena are self-catered with well-equipped kitchenettes where guests can prepare their own meals. Guests can also rent a BBQ from the residence. There are plenty of grocery shops in central San Nicolao (just a 500 metre walk from the property) where food and drink can be bought. In addition to this, the city of Bastia is 40 km from the property and is home to numerous restaurants and bars.


The Resort


San Nicolao

The seaside resort of San Nicolao can be found in the Haute-Corse department of France on the east of Corsica. Situated on the rugged slopes of Mount Castello d'Osari, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, this is a picturesque resort ideal for sightseers.

Walking, relaxing on the beach and sampling some of the many water sports are simply beautiful in Corsica. For something a little more historical, Corsica is proud of its heritage and proudly displays Genoese towers, beautiful ruins and wide open vistas to admire. Cuisine and cooking are important factors in Corsica, so expect to sample plenty of the delicious local foods, which are deeply French in their heritage, flavoured with Italian flair.

Read more about San Nicolao in our destination guide.



Thanks to the resort's seafront location, which offers 17km of coast and a busy harbour, water sports activities are particularly popular. Catamarans and sailing boats are available for hire and there are handy sailing and scuba diving schools in the resort. Other water activities, such as snorkelling, paragliding, fishing and jet-skiing are also great choices.

Visitors who would prefer to stay on dry land can enjoy canyoning, horse riding and hiking in the many mountain trails which can be found throughout San Nicolao, many of which are very close to the Residence Sognu di Rena.


Things to see / not to miss

Fans of history and architecture shouldn't miss out on the chance to visit the San Nicolao parish church. This quaint, 17th century chapel is immediately recognisable thanks to its towering bell tower which stands prominently over the surrounding chestnut woods. The interior of the church is totally authentic to its period and is virtually untouched by the centuries.

The aqueduct is another must-see feature in the resort. This aqueduct has served the working mill of San Nicolao for centuries up to the modern day.
