Porto Vecchio (2 nights)

Your luxury Corsica trip starts with your international flight arrival at Figari, where you will be greeted by your personal host and taken by private transfer to your luxury hotel, Casa del Mar. This beautiful property is located on the bay of Porto Vecchio, and features exceptional views of the Mediterranean. Enjoy an exquisite dinner at its 2-starred Michelin restaurant – the best in Corsica.

The next day, enjoy a private boating experience along the southern coast with your personal guide. You will visit several beaches and bays where you can swim and snorkel. Later, have lunch at the spectacular Bonifacio marina, followed by a tour of its citadel and famous caves. The extraordinary coastline of Bonifacio is known for the dramatic sight of the citadel and town perched on the cliffs. In the evening, relax with soothing spa treatments and dine on delicious French cuisine.

Domaine de Murtoli (3 nights)

Your luxury Corsica tour continues with a private transfer to A Pignata, a beautiful property facing the Alta Rocca mountain range. On the way, visit the town of Levie where you will meet cutlery artisans and learn about the forgery of different art pieces. Enjoy an authentic “menu du jour” made with fresh ingredients overlooking the Alta Rocca Mountain Range. In the afternoon, choose from different private outdoor activities: walk through the prehistoric Cucuruzzu ruins or a horseback riding excursion surrounded by spectacular views and dramatic shifts in landscapes.

Later, continue onto Domaine de Murtoli, your property in the Sartene region, passing by the charming villages of Sainte Lucie de Tallano and Sartene. Domaine de Murtoli is a group of 13 chic cottages on a private beach-fringed estate in the south-west corner of the Mediterranean island. The private villas are refurbished shepherd homes with vast verdant spaces between each home, providing ultimate privacy. The almost 5,000-acre estate has soaring mountains behind it and a river – the Ortolo – running through it. It boasts pastoral lands, agricultural fields, and an extensive vegetable garden. You will have your own 4×4 vehicle during your stay to explore the vast grounds of Domaine de Murtoli. Enjoy dinner at your private home, cooked with local ingredients.

At this property, there’s a wide variety of outdoor activities to choose from, including: horseback riding, walking tours, fishing excursion with your expert guide on board your private traditional fishing boat, and a visit to the property’s farming grounds to learn about its rich agricultural traditions. You will also have time at leisure to enjoy the property’s 6 mile-long (10km) private beach. Dine on delicious meals made with homegrown ingredients at the property’s two gourmet restaurants.

Calvi (2 nights)

No luxury Corsica tour is complete without a private helicopter transfer to Calvi. You will land at the helipad of Hotel La Villa where you will enjoy lunch on the property with spectacular views. This Relais & Châteaux property dominates the bay of Calvi as it proudly perches on the hillside above. Later, visit La Balagne, a coastal area located between Calvi and L’Ile Rousse, with a backdrop of the hills overlooking the sea. It is also known for its picturesque mountain villages that date back to Roman and medieval times. The road of artisans at La Balagne is an invitation to the discovery of traditions and Corsica’s artistic expertise. In the evening, enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at Calvi’s harbor.

The following day, embark on a private boating excursion to Scandola Nature Reserve, a spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site.
