A Leader in the Hospitality Industry
Hotel Casadelmar. An incredible location for an incredible hotel The wonders of Corsica and Porto Vecchio lie one and a half hours from Paris and around two hours from London. Here, the turquoise sea laps heavenly beaches in stunning bays against a backdrop of dazzlingly hued jagged mountains. Corsica’s wild beauty never fails to enchant. Blending harmoniously into this incomparable nature is Casadelmar.
Located at the water’s edge on the Palombaggia road a few kilometres from Porto Vecchio, the hotel stands in two hectares of lush, terraced, landscaped gardens planted with shade-giving yews and umbrella pines. Through floor-to-ceiling picture windows, the light-flooded hotel lobby offers breathtaking, vividly coloured views out over the surrounding scenery: the intense blue Mediterranean, the azure sky, the sparkling white houses of Porto Vecchio, the dark green foliage of the native flora, the golden private beach, the electric blue infinity pool and, when day ends, spectacular sunsets over the bay.
We had the exclusive opportunity to sit down with the General Manager of Casadelmar Mr.Gianluca Bertilaccio.
