Like a modern hideout in the middle of nature, La Villa Ruvoli is tucked away among the olive trees yet only minutes away from the Porto-Vecchio Port. Tranquility is found after a long day at the sea or a walk through the labyrinth of the old village

Area & Experiences
To the southeast of Corsica, Porto-Vecchio reveals both old village authenticity and wild landscapes waiting to be discovered. Whichever way you go, all roads lead back to the parasol-lined beaches where the water is turquoise and the sand is golden. Pulling away from the sea, we’ll cut through the back roads to find La Villa Ruvoli; a private abode sequestered amid the olive trees and far from neighboring vis-à-vis.
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.
