Area & Experiences
In the south-east of Corsica, Porto-Vecchio reveals its stunning landscape between the mountains and the sea. South of the bay, the beaches boast jagged rocks and deep blue water, while the north replaces the golden sands with the green countryside. The farther away you go from sea level, climbing up the hills, the more spectacular the view gets. Settled among this lush greenery in the area of Marina di Fiori, la Villa Acqua stands out majestically from its surrounding flora.
Our nearby experiences
At the Ceccaldi forge, blades are reddening in the flames. Others are being struck with great hammer blows, bent, struck again. They will become magnificent Damascus blades. In the workshops next-door, handles are being crafted from olive wood or horn. All the complexities of making these knives, true works of art, are unveiled.
A cappella at home
As the singers’ voices fill the house, nothing else matters, not time, nor the surroundings. The polyphonic Corsican songs (“A pulifunia Corsa”) are captivating in their power and beauty. Songs sung long ago in remote valleys by shepherds, in your home, brought to you by singers and musicians, passionate about the culture of their island.
Dishes with character
As a starter, Nicole serves copa and lonzu, the two staples of Corsican charcuterie. “Home-made”, she says simply, nodding towards her husband Paul. Tonight, at their isolated farm near the Bavella mountains, brocciu cannelloni and lemon fiadone are on the menu, all helped down with a good Corsican wine and short stories told by the couple, Corsican, always and forever. A delight.
