Corsica has much to recommend it: The island has an astonishing variety of landscapes and ecosystems, the beaches are magnificent, and the food and wines are superb. It now also boasts two stellar boutique hotels that meet with our approval: a seaside retreat and a hilltop hideaway.
Exceptional seaside hideaway on a verdant hilltop estate with a river running through it on the wild Cap Corse peninsula. The 29 minimalist accommodations featuring unobstructed views of the Mediterranean are elegantly appointed in a palette of varying white and beige colors, copper accents and wicker furnishings. The magnificent Maquis Mascaracce Suite includes a private garden with a swimming pool and terrace.
From the editor: “[The] low-key sensibility was immediately apparent, and the young international staff were exceptionally welcoming and friendly.”

Spectacular property, perched on a limestone promontory overlooking the Gulf of Santa Manza, encompassing beautifully landscaped grounds, a heated swimming pool and two beaches, one with mooring buoys and a pontoon. All of the 40 guest rooms feature cream color schemes, stone and wood detailing, private terraces or balconies, and maquis or sea views. Five glamorous villas are also available.
From the editor: “This is a memorably peaceful and private seaside hotel in a magnificent setting, which makes it an ideal place to far niente, ‘do nothing,’ as the Italians say.”
