La Plage Casadelmar, CorsicaFrom Porto-Vecchio’s Riviera-glam nightlife to the dramatic landscapes (fjords, mountains, and white sandy beaches), there’s a lot to love about the Mediterranean isle of Corsica. This year, especially, as the Tour de France is celebrating its 100th anniversary by starting in Corsica for the first time. Booking a holiday on the “isle of beauty”? Consider a chic new boutique hotel in Porto-Vecchio called La Plage Casadelmar, opening in April.

A member of Design Hotels, the property exhibits gorgeous architecture by Jean-François Bodin, who used natural materials like volcanic rock and 300 year-old oak to blend in with the surrounding landscape. The 15 guest rooms reflect Corsica’s color palette (bright sea blue, olive couches, and white fabrics). Mediterranean cuisine is served at the beach grill; there is also a bar on the beach. Note: a complimentary boat shuttle can transport guests to (sister property) Hotel Casadelmar. For more information, visit
