Elegant rooms in a quiet and charming village hotel in France's Corsica, with stunning mountain views - breakfast included

Once the home of an eminent Corsican family, Hôtel Mare e Monti is a peaceful mountain retreat in Corsica’s northern hills. Lovingly converted into a hotel in the 1960s, the grand property has played host to numerous distinguished guests over the years, and recently benefited from a sympathetic refurbishment which has retained all of its homely charms. Stay in one of its elegant rooms, with lovely views over the forested mountains and rolling hills around the village of Feliceto.

Take a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool and relax on the terrace under the shade of majestic Lebanese cedar and Indian cherry trees – the perfect spot to stretch out with a book and a cocktail from the bar. The hotel can arrange plenty of activities locally, from paragliding to horse riding; guests are also welcome to sample the excellent Domaine Renucci wines in the cellar next to the hotel, or learn about the village’s artisan glassblowing.

Surrounding the hotel there are a number of well-marked walking trails leading to the slopes of Monte Grosso, where the eagle-eyed may spot the ancient Bandit’s House. The coast is just 30 minutes’ drive away in the lively resort town of l’Île-Rousse, where you’ll find lots of restaurants and shops.
