Experience Corsica at U Palazzu Serenu, a small, high quality hotel perched on the hillside at the foot of the mountain town of Oletta. Set within the confines of a converted, old Corsican palace, its grandeur is further defined by its laid-back comfort and high level service. With just eight rooms, guests will enjoy an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, which perfectly complements the serenity of the surrounding mountain scenery.

The immaculate presentation throughout the hotel is inspired by the owner's love for all things artistic, making it an intriguing and striking place to stay. Each room is large and airy, designed in a minimalist fashion which helps to amplify the art and artefacts on show, which are enjoyed both in the rooms and around the hotel. Facilities include a first-class restaurant with an outdoor dining terrace to take in the views out across to the Gulf of St Florent. Guests will also enjoy access to a large swimming pool which sits beside the sea-view terrace, further presenting the wonderful countryside and coastal vistas.

For those keen to get active there are some fantastic walking opportunities to be had in the undulating landscapes that surround Oletta, while the chic seaside town of St Florent with its harbour and La Roya beach is just a 15-minute drive.
