I know a place where the mid summer sun lights up the sea, the living is way easy, and the kids are alright.

Let me tell you about

a place I know. It's a precious island retreat where slow living meets family vacation.  A slow-chic corner of paradise where you don't have to worry about the kids because they are laughing under a watchful eye, just over there. It’s the miraculous place where you can enjoy the sunset and a romantic moment over artisanal cured meats and take the kids to the beach in the morning. It happens to be the same place where you and the little ones talk to sheep on the way to get tomatoes from the garden, but you can still sneak a nap in the afternoon before a evening stroll with your love.

Too good to be true?

It's all so much closer than you think.

Just nine hours from New York, Corsica is a granite gem of an island where surf greets turf with a double air kiss and “bonjour!”.  Think of it as Hawaii in the south of France. Six hundred miles of gleaming coastline featuring the clearest water in the Mediterranean. A lazy sea lapping against beaches, medieval fortresses, and French restaurants in the sand. Pristine pine forests spread along high plateaus, while crystalline mountain streams feed lush river valleys corrugated with grapevines. The short distance from mountain to beach results in a dizzying variety of landscapes packed neatly into a picnic basket of short drives. Local wines and food stuffs are impossibly good, and people still make them they way that they should.

Imagine your family nestled into your usual routine in a villa surrounded by 20 acres of farm and forest. Relax by the pool in perfect tranquility knowing your children are looked after by licensed nannies. Take time to reconnect with your love over a table for two while the little ones are tucked up in bed with the babysitter. Bonfires, ghost stories and tents in the yard are definitely all together activities, but late night star gazing and sneaking off upstairs for an early night are left to the adults. Wild swimming in natural pools, boating to secluded beach, soaking in hot mineral baths, hike to secret Corsican spot are some of the activities you can choose from, but staying at the farm and letting the kids run free may well be your kind of heaven. The schedule is left intentionally sparse to allow for customization, spontaneity and maximum slow living. Once you and your family have made a booking, a customization phone call will be scheduled, where we can talk about what you’d most like to do, or not do.
