Ciottolu di Mori - Mountain Refuge
At 2000m altitude, this refuge nestles at the foot of the Paglia Orba and the Tafunatu. It has been completely refurbished, it is particularly clean and there are no bed bugs!
If you are walking with teenagers, it’s a really good stop over. With a series of sun baked rock pools, there are swim possibilities all the way along the trail, to break up the walking. Although it is a challenging ascension it is not over long, so it won’t put them off.
A bed in the refuge costs 14 euros per person. Alternatively, you can pay 12,50 Euros per person for a two man tent with mattresses provided.
The evening meal menu was great value for money. For 22 euros I had Corsican soup, it was hot and hearty, full of beans and vegetables. Followed by a bowl of macaroni, flavoured with a delicious homemade tomato sauce, mushrooms and bacon, topped off with parmesan cheese.
All in all, for the location, the views, the food and the cleanliness of Ciottolu refuge, I can thoroughly recommend it.
