Perched in the Corsican mountains, Villa Prunelli is an old stone building that has been renovated completely. Live in harmony with nature, paced by the sun and the songs of cicadas

Area & Experiences
At the southern tip of Corsica, the wind and the sea have sculpted the coastline into a succession of secluded creeks. Down here there’s not a house to be seen: just crystalline waters and golden sands. Follow the paths lined with cork oaks and wild thyme, up into the mountains to admire the panoramic view. From up here, you can see as far as Sardinia. Along the way, discover the picturesque hamlets of Figari, little clusters of farmhouses and Romanesque churches. Amid this timeless Corsican splendour sits Villa Prunelli.
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.
