France, Corse du Sud – Domaine de Murtoli, la grotte
Set on 6,000 acres in the south of Corsica between sawtooth mountain ridges and the foaming Mediterranean, Domaine de Murtoli offers an unparalleled experience. This hotel offers luxurious accommodation in opulently updated shepherds’ houses and landlord mansions built in the 17th century. From private pools to flamboyant fireplaces, the most divine of stays awaits behind rustic wrought iron gates.
As for the dining environment, there’s a choice between the beach and its La Table de la Plage, built entirely of driftwood offering the best of the Mediterranean, or La Table de la Ferme, a one Michelin-star restaurant highlighting the seasonal products from the farm and local producers. Even more special is La Table de la Grotte, a natural cave with terraces from where dinners overlook the incredible Corsican views.

Ingredients are so local some are virtually on your doorstep whether it be from the working farm or from the sea and the Corsican terroir of the local area. There are fruits and vegetables from the orchard and gardens, olive oil from the mill, the cheeses from the ewes, the honey from the hives, fish and sea urchins caught early in the morning, and herbs freshly picked from the Corsican maquis.
The Domaine de Murtoli offers incredible leisure including fishing in our private boat, or in the river for trout, horse riding, a summer spa, the private beach, or a game on the private 12-hole golf course designed by Kyle Phillips.
