The hotel, young member of the Leading Hotels Of the World since 2014, opens majestically over the sea opposite the bay of Porto Vecchio. With its resolutely contemporary and ecological architecture, clean lines, its facades dressed in red cedar, extended its 34 rooms and suites, large private terraces facing the sea, its beauty center ESPA and the fitness center is an ideal destination for a dream holiday on the island of beauty. To extend this moment of pleasure, Fabio Bragagnolo and its gourmet restaurant “Le Casadelmar” declines with excellent regional produce passion.
The hotel offers a perfect combination of a framework and an exceptional location; it is a perfect haven to come relax in its gardens bordered with lemon myrtle, olive, and immortal, which will transport you to a parade of flavors and light. Lying around the infinity pool, sitting with a drink on the terrace of Bar Lounge or from that of your room, you attend every night at a lavish sunset.

The architect Jean-François Bodin designed the furniture with the beds centered on the view.
Light wood, white walls, gray floors cut in Bateig stone …
The light is absolute and determines the tone of each space, filtered and sifted by colored drapes.

The Chef, Fabio Bragagnolo
Fabio Bragagnolo is dedicated to preparing gourmet dishes that reflect the spirit of the hotel and live up to Casadelmar’s incomparable natural surroundings.
A baker’s son born in northern Italy, he has been passionate about cooking ever since he was a young boy. After working in a number of top international restaurants, he arrived in France in 1999 to take up the position of sous-chef at Carpaccio in the Royal Monceau in Paris, which he believes is the gastronomic capital of the world.
He then moved to Porto Vecchio, Corsica, to open the Casadelmar restaurant, where he was deputy executive chef for eight years. Hard-working and modest, with a sophisticated sense of taste and an expert’s flair for creativity, he was the natural choice to take over as head chef in 2014.
Since then he has won two Michelin stars in recognition of his exceptional talent and savoir-faire.
The Pastry Chef, Claudio Pezzetti
Originally from Padua, Italy, Claudio Pezzetti joined Casadelmar when it opened, and his career as pastry chef has developed with the restaurant. The creations he has produced over the years demonstrate a perfect mastery of his art.
Like his close colleague Fabio Bragagnolo, Claudio focuses on Mediterranean ingredients such as brocciu and mascarpone cheese, or amaretto and limoncello liqueurs, to create sensationally light and elegant desserts, including passion fruit soufflé with Tahitian vanilla, Granny Smith apple sphere, and chocolate medley.
Nature et serenity at Casadelmar
Decorated with dark wood, Japanese fabric and Medici marble, Casadelmar’s Spa & Wellness was designed as a calming retreat from the exuberant natural surroundings and sunlit world outside, a luxurious cocoon where guests can relax and unwind.
The spa offers a wide range of natural treatments and traditional therapies based on the rituals developed by British skincare and spa specialists ESPA, which provide long-lasting physical and emotional benefits.
ESPA products are carefully created with meticulous attention to textures and fragrances, and combine active ingredients (essential oils, marine extracts and botanicals) derived from natural sources. Treatments are tailored to the specific needs of guests.
The spa also offers a special treatment made with essential oils from Corsican shrubs grown in Casadelmar’s own herb garden, such as everlasting flowers, lavender, sage, rosemary and thyme depending on the season.
The fitness centre boasts magnificent views of the Gulf of Porto Vecchio and offers state-of-the-art equipment. A personal coach is available for custom private sessions on request.
