Tucked away in the Corsican maquis, Villa Marila looks out over the bay of Porto-Vecchio. Out on the sun-kissed terrace, in the shade of the eucalyptus trees, it’s easy to imagine yourself on the bridge of a yacht clipping across the Mediterranean

Area & Experiences

On Corsica’s south east coast, Porto Vecchio is surrounded on all sides by unspoilt nature. On one side, the intense blue of the Mediterranean stretches out to the horizon; on the other, the hillsides planted with chestnut trees climb up to the sky. Take a deep breath and taste the sea air, enriched with the inimitable scent of warm eucalyptus. Villa Marila is tucked away amid the brush, just a few miles outside the old town. Out on the roomy veranda, which feels like the deck of a sailboat, you can watch the ships come and go from Porto-Vecchio, heading off to visit the colourful villages of Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

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.
