Casadelmar is a beautiful hotel positioned in Porto Vecchio, Corsica, France.
It was developed by Jean-François Bodin in 2013.
Casadelmar by Jean-François Bodin:
“An incredible spot for an extraordinary hotel. The wonders of Corsica and Porto Vecchio lie one particular and a half hours from Paris and about 2 hours from London. Here, the turquoise sea laps heavenly seashores in beautiful bays against a backdrop of dazzlingly hued jagged mountains. Corsica’s wild elegance in no way fails to enchant.
Blending harmoniously into this incomparable nature is Casadelmar. Positioned at the water’s edge on the Palombaggia road a number of kilometres from Porto Vecchio, the hotel stands in 2 hectares of lush, terraced, landscaped gardens planted with shade-providing yews and umbrella pines.
Through floor-to-ceiling image windows, the light-flooded hotel lobby gives breathtaking, vividly coloured views out above the surrounding scenery: the extreme blue Mediterranean, the azure sky, the sparkling white houses of Porto Vecchio, the dark green foliage of the native flora, the golden personal seaside, the electric blue infinity pool and, when day ends, magnificent sunsets more than the bay. 5-star hotel with 34 fine luxury rooms and suites. 3 suites in a villa with a private swimming pool.
Excellent idea. In total harmony with nature. Home specialist and vice-chairman of Porto Vecchio Chamber of Commerce Jean-Noël Marcellesi purchased an outdated hotel establishment in 2001 and opened it 3 many years later on as Casadelmar. To complement its special location on a designated conservation coastline overlooking the magnificent Bay of Porto Vecchio, Marcellesi passionate about his island and respectful of its authentic values, decided to endow the with the greatest Corsica has to offer you.
Employing wood, stone and light as the key elements in the 2 the hotel and unique private villa, the architect has combined understated signal and luxury particulars all through.
The mythical, sun-basking salamander picked as the Casadelmar’s emblem can be glimpsed all through the hotel: in corridors, on rugs and on pictures.
An extraordinary Mediterranean backyard
Armed with the knowledge of creating and renovating over 1000 green spaces, Jean Mus took up the challenge launched by his buddies the Marcellesi to generate an extraordinary garden showcasing the quintessence of Mediterranean flora.
This generous, intuitive lover of the land reclaimed a wild hillside overlooking the sea and turned it into a dream landscaped backyard for Casadelmar. In perfect harmony with the surrounding scenery, it showcases the Mediterranean’s sweetest-smelling and most spectacular plant varieties, such as Tuscan cypresses, Japanese pines, olive and orange trees, Corsican myrtle and oleanders.”
