Things to do

Casa Alpana is located at the gateway of Cap Corse, an unspoilt region famously known for its authenticity, its stunning scenery and its old fishing villages. You can’t fail to be charmed by the awe-inspiring sunrise from the Toscano archipelago!

Cap Corse peninsula, also known as ‘an Island within an island’, offers an area of outstanding natural beauty. The stunning scenery, twenty Genoese towers and its preserved creeks and beaches are totally addictive. As the only Corsican region where mountains rise from the depths of the sea, Cap Corse enjoys a well deserved reputation for the quality of its protected sites and birds it hosts.

The fishing villages like Erbalunga, Centuri, Nonza or Luri will take you deep inside traditional customs and music, skillfully played by the Corsican people who know precisely how to thrill your senses. You will appreciate the beauty of walks into the maquis and along the sea with "the douanier trail" at the most northern point and contemplate the magnificent viewpoints plunging down to the sea from “the crestes trail”, which follows the mountain ridge from northern to southern Corsica.

● Enjoy the gentle pace of village life with local shops (bakery, newsagent, tobacconist, market) only 100 metres from the properties. For a more vibrant scene, visit Bastia (2 min drive) with its beautiful citadel, boutiques, restaurants and nightlife around chic, cosmopolitan quays;

● Explore the charming cultural heritage of the little port of Erbalunga (8 min drive). Magnificent buildings are a reminder of its wealthy history, and the impressive Genoese watchtower is popular with painters and tourists alike. Enjoy its summer music festival within a 1,000-seat open air amphitheatre;

● Discover bustling Saint Florent (30 min drive) with its Genoese citadel, neverending sandy beaches, gastronomic restaurants and the musical festival "Porto Latino";

● Sample the delicious Patrimonio wines (20 min drive), from the best winemaking region in Corsica. Enjoy the festival of guitar music "Les Nuits de la Guitare".

Testimonials

● We spent a wonderful holiday last summer at Casa Alpana. The staff are very friendly, and service is outstanding and discreet. They really care about the guests and service is as good as in the finest hotels. Alexander, Moscow, Summer 2011

● This place is paradise! We hired the whole estate with friends and family, and we haven't had so much fun in a very long time. The staff and management were very helpful and kind. We were pleasantly surprised by the 'concierge services' but we can confirm that the service we've received here has been better than a five star hotel! You really do get what you pay for. Definitely the best luxury resort in Corsica. Mike, New York, Easter 2011
