The natural elements of the island of Corsica were the inspiration for La Plage Casadelmar. The crisp sunlight, the colors of the surrounding landscape, and the warm hospitality of the people were all used as the ingredients to create a property that complements its immaculate coastal location. The hotel is set on a sandy beach in the bay of Porto-Vecchio, a port town that is famed for its spirited nightlife and easy going elegance.
Award-winning French architect Jean-François Bodin used natural materials to renovate the existing building, creating an unobtrusive structure that does not interfere with the views or landscape. Inside and out, old stone has been blended with volcanic rock, cement, resin, glass, and 300-year-old oak; and colors picked from the shoreline in varying shades of green, blue, and sandy browns, white, beige and cream have been used for the furnishings. With only 15 rooms and suites, and the same management as its nearby sister property, Casadelmar, guests will enjoy individualized service.
Whether they are dining with ocean views at the beach grill restaurant, serving uncomplicated gourmet cuisine with Mediterranean flavours, are reclining on a day bed by the heated pool, or toasting to the day’s end at the lounge bar – they will be surrounded by the riches of this extraordinary island, and warm, genuine hospitality.
Surrounded by a pristine, private beach and views of the bay, La Plage Casadelmar is the ideal location from which to enjoy the vibrant, seaside-chic atmosphere of the island of Corsica.
