Boasting majestic views over the Desert des Agriates and the Gulf of Saint-Florent from its hillside village position lies Aethos Corsica, a 300-year-old nobleman's house set in verdant lawns and staggered sun terraces lining the inviting 20 metre lap pool. Offering just six spacious, airy rooms and three suites, this intimate hotel has been immaculately transformed into a Florentine-inspired palace, its classic Italianate style offset by a complimenting yet contrasting collection of contemporary art and sculptures from the likes of Anish Kapoor and Daniel Arsham.
Dining is an inspired affair; the menu at CECI offers a modern approach on Italian clasics, with a local Corsican twist, accompanied by an excellent wine list. There are also a number of excellent restaurants in the village, a short walk away.
