Combining the Italian "Dolce Vita", a seaside ambience and a Balinese serenity, Villa Suno invites you on a trip to the heart of the Corsican scrubland

Area & Experiences
At the very southern tip of Corsica, the limestone cliffs of Bonifacio break out of the Mediterranean that separates the Isle of Beauty and Sardinia. Boats follow the craggy coastline to reach the isolated port and old citadel that stands watch over the city. Villa Suno is located a few kilometres from here across from Cavalo island and the rocks of Lavezzi. Perched atop a hill, it surveys the scrubland like a sailboat floating over the waves.
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.
