Area & Experiences

Ten miles from the famous gorges of Bonifacio, Freto is an authentically unspoilt Corsican landscape. Streams roll down the mountainsides, winding their way through cork oak forests and sun-soaked vineyards before spilling out into the Mediterranean. Scattered throughout the scrubland are the little hamlets of Figari, with their old stone houses and clock towers. Here, in the heart of the Corsican maquis, surrounded by the island’s oldest dynasties, lies Villa Canella.

Our nearby experiences

Beautiful knives

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.
