** Fairly VERY prone to strikes, right now (2013). Future of company is hanging in the balance, given 'illegal' grant of €220m and fine of €220m from the EU. In addition, there is an open-ended strike action from 2014-01-01. A shame, because it may affect largely the cost of living in Corsica because of the number of lorries/trucks which bring goods to the island on the ferries.

There is virtually no electrical noise. LF bands are super. However, bring noise-cancelling headphones as most places are hard walled and tiled, so noise is carried easily and in echoes.
