Area & Experiences
In south-eastern Corsica, where the maquis meets the Mediterranean, purple rocks peek out from the turquoise waters. The invigorating saltwater breeze mingles with the scent of wild thyme and rosemary. Driving south through the brush, following the curve of the coast to the island’s southern tip, the view is never short of spectacular. Villa Sagone is just off the road that runs between Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio, perched atop a hillside overlooking Rondinara Bay.
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.
