Southern Corsica is an Eden like region where nature reigns supreme in a setting that is both rugged and gentle at the same time. The limestone cliffs of Bonifacio at the extreme southern tip of Corsica, also known as the Isle of Beauty, the picturesque atmosphere of the traditional unspoiled villages in the back country are all awesome wonders for visitors to discover. Among them, we find the third largest city on the island: Porto Vecchio, nicknamed the “city of salt” since its salt marshes once produced more than a thousand tons of the product annually. The flats no longer exist today, and Porto Vecchio’s present reputation lies in the magnificent beaches surrounding it.
This renowned Mediterranean resort city has a rich heritage including the Porte Génoise which refers to the people who built Porto Vecchio’s walls. The city is a labyrinth of small, narrow, typically southern streets where getting lost in them is by far the best way to make the acquaintance of the often excitable but always admirable Corsican soul. We discover a proud and direct people with hardened faces carved by the sun, (we’re only a few lengths from Sardinia in Italy!) the sun also being the prime factor in Corsica’s way of life. What one is most impressed by however, during a visit to this charming port city, is the incredible osmosis with the elements around it.
The nature surrounding the Hotel Casadelmar, which means “house of the sea”, gives this luxurious establishment a sense of poetic majesty with typically southern Corsican vegetation. The hotel’s enchanting charm consists of a building composed of natural elements, wood for the most part, blending into the landscape as if to accentuate the beauty of its surroundings rather than being the center of attraction. This simplicity is the trademark of the hotel, a sobriety which is accomplished by the use of carefully selected design elements in a space where not even the slightest detail has been left to chance. Even the light seems to fall exactly where the architect wanted it. And yet this spontaneous beauty is wild with Mediterranean nature which is also a major part of the Casadelmar.
Contemplation, reverie and poetry are the key words that come to mind as one visits the Casadelmar. Whether it’s the magnificent infinity swimming pool with its breathtaking view or one of the 36 rooms and suites facing the bay of Porto-Vecchio, guests finds themselves in a truly exceptional universe.
This detailed search for natural splendor combined with the desire to please and to share can also be found in the villa, an extremely luxurious accommodation offered to guests seeking a unique type of refuge. Here, the blend of design, nature and poetry is at its height, creating a visual apotheosis where well-being is part of the DNA emanating from within the walls.
The ESPA spa provides moments of unforgettable relaxation in a setting specifically created to replace all stressful and unpleasant thoughts with a sense of peace and serenity.
The Casadelmar’s gastronomic two star Michelin restaurant directed by chef Fabio Bragagnolo is nothing short of a must. Considered to be one of the finest on the Isle of Beauty, it proposes a modern cuisine inspired by local products with superb and stunning dishes.
Just a few kilometers away, we find the Casadelmar’s private beach, one of the most beautiful in the region, a lovely complement to an already magnificent establishment.
