ASCENO TRAVELS: CORSICAN ESCAPES

A mix of remarkable scenery, thriving culture, diverse food and outstanding sites, come together to make Corsica a truly breathtaking location

Family Villa - La Signoria

Corsica is one of the lesser travelled spots within the Mediterranean, but its popularity is growing, and for good reason. The island is rife with incredible natural beauty, towering tree-lined cliffs, and has some stunning places to stay.

The true magic of Corsica is the depth of the area's terrain; under an hour, the landscape changes from glistening beaches and coastal cities, to sprawling valleys, dense forests and picturesque hilltop villages. The beauty of course, being that each day spent on the island can carry a different beat. 

 

Hotel Grounds - La Signoria

Villa Prestige Luxe Private Entrance

When it comes to choosing the ideal base, there are two key spots;

La Signoria delivers on all fronts: extraordinary settings, awe-inspiring vistas of the neighbouring mountain ranges, and its in wandering distance to the seafront. The surroundings are framed by conifer plants and palm trees, while the exterior of the building references a Spanish Colonial aesthetic. 

One of the most charming aspects of La Signoria is the juxtaposition between the hotel's exterior, and it's blend of art deco and antique furnishings, that culminate to create a diverse atmosphere throughout the hotel's different rooms.

Ancienne Demuere Apartment

Classic finishings in areas such as the bathrooms accent the old-world feel that the hotel achieves throughout, comprehensively tying the ambience together.

Continuing the hunt for impeccable views isn't hard. Venture to the southern shores of Corsica to uncover U Capu Biancu to give yourself the feeling of being on the beach at all times. 

Swimming Pool -  U Capu Biancu

From the two private beaches, and chic poolside area, wine cellar and sea-view rooms (to name a few), U Capu Biancu really has a wholistic offering to ensure the most memorable stay. 

The exterior of the hotel's overall aesthetic is paired down - a confident mix of neutral tones and themed furnishings and natural materials such as limestone and stripped hardwood. Although the rooms are all designed to reflect an individual mood, the overall intent is on ensuring the natural beauty of the surroundings stays in focus.
