Hotel-Restaurant in Restonica

Restonica Inn

Located by the river, just 5 minutes from Corte up the valley, lies the Restonica Inn, a family business for four generations. Under the management of two sisters, Rachel and Emilie Arnol, the establishment built in the 60s was their great-grandmother's holiday home who, alone in the winter, turned it into guest rooms.

The Inn is open from April to October, 7 days a week with lunch and dinner service at the restaurant, and a welcoming platter. In the winter, the establishment opens by reservation for events: baptism, wedding, seminar, group.

Gourmet Restaurant

The Restonica restaurant offers gourmet dishes with traditional flavors revisited, such as the Restonica fillet, a beef fillet with sheep's cheese deglazed with brandy, or another specialty, the Corsican milk-fed lamb confit.

Rachel and Emilie choose local products from a Corte livestock for the lambs, for the PDO charcuterie, and the cheese of the region. Regional products married to seasonal vegetables, all prepared by the chef's hand for a tasty cuisine.

Restaurant with pool and river

The Auberge de la Restonica is in the heart of nature, its terrace overlooks the pool, and the river below, nestled in the valley between mountain and forest. An idyllic setting that you can also enjoy from the inside through a large bay window.

The restaurant and inn's pool is available to guests with sunbed rental. It has a shower and a foot bath. As it is not supervised, children are under the responsibility of their parents.

Double, triple, and family duplex rooms

The inn has 7 rooms divided into 3 triple rooms, 3 double rooms and one family duplex room that can accommodate 4 to 6 people, for a total capacity of 21 places. After a renovation, all rooms were equipped with air conditioning in 2018 and have a Wi-Fi internet connection, bathroom, shower, hairdryer.


2 Single beds
Private parking

Due to the area's limited GSM network coverage, Rachel and Emilie invite you to contact them on the establishment's landline.

Family Duplex

Restonica Inn

The duplex offers a comfortable space where you will feel right at home, appreciating the thoughtfully designed decor.

A small corridor with a large sliding wardrobe leads to the bathroom, with the living room to your right. You can reach the two bedrooms by the stairs to a curtained-off attic space, featuring two double beds.

Remarkable Site

This classified site attracts many visitors throughout the summer who appreciate the coolness of the valley and its river lined with laricio pines. Hiking trails leading to the lakes of Melu and Capitellu are a must-visit further up the valley. These sites are protected to preserve the resident ecosystem, which is home to endemic species, some unique, especially in the Restonica Gorges.
