Hopefully, I didnt have to know the place !
So one day, yes, I'll go to Corsica and pay a visit to Solenzara....in a civilian way.
Solenzara is a town...not the air base many miles north of it. When I had breakfast at Hotel Mare e Festa, I'd see the Mirages coming in for a landing.

Solenzara isn't big, but it isn't anything like "remote, empty and harsh".
