Everything at Terre de Maquis is designed with love. From the first to the last minute, Claire and Philippe will treat you like family. The tasteful rooms, beautiful campus and delicious breakfast will make you never want to leave. If you are anywhere in Corsica, this is the place to stay. If you are not in Corsica, it’s worth planning a holiday around. We will be back!

We spent a week in Corsica and our stay at Terre de Maquis was the highlight. An absolutely stunning property nestled in the foothills near the ocean, it is the pinnacle of rest, relaxation, and style. Even better, Claire and Philippe were the most welcoming hosts. We loved spending time with them, and they made sure we were well taken care of during our stay. You can tell how much love they've put into the property; so many thoughtful touches and just a totally unique design. We loved laying at the pool and relaxing with a drink for sunset. There are also two amazing restaurants within a 3-minute walk of the property (Chez Lolo was the best pizza we've ever had in our life -- and we are New Yorkers!). We cannot wait to come back. Thank you again Claire and Philippe.

The highlight of our two week trip was staying at Terre de Maquis with Claire and Philippe. Every detail was perfection, the space is better than the nicest five star resort. The view, the pool and grounds, the absolutely pristine and delightful rooms with terraces, are all most enjoyable. No detail is overlooked to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. But the best part of all is being taken care of by two unforgettable hosts. Claire and Philippe will make you feel at home before you even arrive and they will be the reason you don't want to leave! Thank you a million times, Claire and Philippe, for our incredible stay and how you made our time something we will always cherish!

Simply a very beautiful Hotel! Philipp and Claire have created an oasis of wellbeing, relaxation and good design. With only a small amount of rooms, the service and connection to the "land" is given. Definitely can recommend to stay here.
