Luxury in Corsica: Domaine Misincu Opens in June

There’s a reason Corsica is called the “Isle of Beauty.” Revered as one of the most gorgeous places in the Mediterranean, Corsica isn’t just blessed with natural beauty, the mountainous island also has a rich history and culture. For jetsetting luxury lovers keen to explore la Corse, there’s a new five-star hotel opening at the end of June which promises to check all the boxes for an indulgent stay.

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), the Domaine Misíncu is situated in the north, on the tip of the island, which is known as Cap Corse. Dotted with centuries-old fishing villages and spectacular beaches, Cap Corse is prized for its pristine natural landscapes. In Misíncu’s main building, constructed by local artisans, there are 29 guest rooms with marble baths, oak floors, and views of the sea. There are also villas.

Environmental sustainability is an important mission for the Domaine Misíncu. The property is equipped with solar panels, and the two restaurants will serve an authentic “locavore” cuisine with ingredients sourced locally—from local fishermen, beekeepers, cheesemakers, charcuterie producers, and the hotel’s own vegetable garden. Chef Clément Collet has honed his skills working in some of the finest restaurant kitchens: Georges Blanc, Eden Rock in Saint-Barth, the Réserve de Beaulieu, Kilimandjaro in Courchevel, the Restaurant Hélène Darroze at The Connaught in London, and La Villa Calvi.
