Our favourite rooms
Every room in the hotel has its own balcony or terrace. The style is sunny but simple – bedrooms are graced with luxe linens and buxom beds, but little imagination. Handily, that means they’re all big and minimalist enough to take an extra bed or two. But the apartments are best for larger families with full-size, t(w)eenage broods – they come in two- and three-bedroom configurations, all with ensuites, so everyone gets the privacy they came for.
The main pool is a stunning great infinity pool with views out over woodland and terracotta rooftops towards Calvi. There are loungers either side of it, and the pool bar is open throughout summer, so you can order drinks and snacks while remaining horizontal. It sits next to a proper 25-metre swimming pool, so serious swimmers and paddlers needn’t mix. Elsewhere, a smaller pool is gated and a little more private, but also has a few loungers. Children are welcome in both, though there are no lifeguards. The heated pool within the spa is a splash- and kid-free zone.
In a shady corner, the spa is a blissful, all-white space with views through glass windows over the garden. The Turkish bath is free for all guests to use and the pool is adults-only. The range of customised Anne Sémonin treatments includes massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and body treatments. A little gym has treadmills, bikes and weights, and a salon offers cuts and blow-dries.
There are pools aplenty, but no bits and bobs for water babies. Bring swim nappies, arm bands, inflatables, goggles – whatever you might need. At the hotel's boutique, La Villa B, you can buy bikinis and kaftans.
Babysitters must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. Spa treatments are best booked on arrival – if you need to change or cancel your appointment, you need to notify the spa at least 24 hours in advance. Hairdresser’s appointments should be booked the day before.
