Experience Corsica all seasons at Casa Albina
Casa Albina lies in the heart of the countryside surrounded by undulating chalk hills at the edge of Patrimonio, one of the most famous winemaking areas in Corsica, five minutes drive to the beach and Saint-florent and 1h30 to Corte, Calvi, the point of Cap Corse and Castaniccia.
The estate, an acre of private parkland, is on the outskirts of the vineyards classed AOP of Patrimonio. Numerous species of plants and trees abundantly offer perfumes and visual delights indigenous to the Mediterranean and a small river, the "Fiume Albinu" runs along the edge of the grounds. A few strides away stands the Genoese stone bridge which marks the starting point of the historical pathway leading to the monastery "San Francescu di Marianda", in the neighbouring village of Farinole.
Three independent gites in a renovated farm building plus the owner's house are located on the grounds.
Blending in harmoniously with the surrouding landscape and using traditional Corsican rural architctural materials, the renovation is a tasteful combination of local stone, lime based products, wood and cast iron, giving the interior and exterior of the building an authentic local flavour.
All the accommodation has landscape views and each apartment has one or two private shaded courtyards, leading out into the garden or the orchard and furnished with teak garden furniture and a barbecue. This means our guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the naturel surroundings and the Corsican "art de vivre".
In the grounds, children have their own shaded area equipped with games, whilst adults can relax by the river or in hammocks under century old trees next to ageless rocks. There is access to the river, a near-by shaded parking space for each gite and covered parking for bikes and motorbikes.
Situated in the Gulf of Saint-Florent, Patrimonio is an ideal location for exploring the northern part of Corsica. At the crossroads of the main northern Corsican tourist routes leading to the Balagne, Centre, Cap Corse and the Nebbio.
Cultural and sports activities are guaranteed all year round, both in the surrounding area and in the village itself, thanks to a number of talented craftsmen, winemakers and various dynamic organisations. These includes traditional Corsican singing and instrumental courses, oenologie... There are a variety of sites to visit and activities throughout the year. All these can be so much more interesting away from the high season. This is why life is good at Casa Albina during all seasons.
We take great pleasure in helping our guest organise their stay and personalized tours.
