Immerse in a natural Mediterranean reserve of Corsica at Hôtel Cala di Greco
This choice will be for nature-lovers, adventure-seekers; those couples looking for an active honeymoon, full of sports and exciting activities. Corsica has it all and more: delicious food, art, sea, and mountains. You can still hear locals talking in the ancient Corsican language, the “U Corsu” but the island isn’t stuck in the past. It looks at the future with a focus on providing sustainable and luxurious services to visitors. And there is no better place to enjoy it all than Hôtel Cala di Greco.
At Cala di Greco every detail speaks of Corsica’s beauty, from the wood of the furniture to the stone of the interiors. That’s how the Amadei family crafted this place, in a continuous dialogue between outside and inside. The name – Cala di Greco, means ‘’Greek cove’’ and pays homage to Homer’s Odyssey, whose main character is said to have stopped over in Bonifacio during his journey. And now even the suites depict names of mythological Greek characters.
The breathtaking views from the escarpment, dreamy birdsong, the heady scent of herbs, and salty breezes are all part of the Cala di Greco experience. Something that couples on the honeymoon will surely appreciate. Imagine blending it with a private and luxurious suite with its own patio and balcony to leave you in awe. It’s like having Corsica’s heart all to yourselves.
Cala di Greco is a walking distance from the cobbled stone, medieval town of Bonifacio; also a five-minute drive from nestled between rocks beaches of Corsica – and did we mention the spectacular views? However, what makes Cala di Greco particularly special is the personalised service they will dedicate to you and your loved one. The team of this boutique hotel will make you feel at home, yet pampered, at the same time.
You will take with you memories of dipping at midnight in the heated swimming pool with your second half when the lights of Bonifacio look like a nativity scene… Or strolling down hand in hand the scenic path leading to the town and the surrounding beaches. Not to mention the local cuisine and other cultural experiences that Corsica has to offer.
