Dangling your tanned legs off the dock at Grand Hôtel de Cala Rossa, you recall doing the same at some lake from your childhood. Come to think of it, this whole place has a sort of nostalgic charm - harkening back to hazy memories you wish you had known better. Sure, the furnishings here are still slick, and you can see the touches of a master designer, but in certain spots, like the treehouse massage area, you can't help but feel 12-years-old.
Here, on the nearly unblemished isle of Corsica, the gated Grand Hôtel de Cala Rossa is a place for pause, and delight. Even the Chef here is whimsical, exclaiming, "The food should not be credited entirely to me, but instead to the island itself."
Upon hearing the call of the wild, head out kayaking, canoeing, trekking, hunting, or golfing. After a king's hunger has been worked up, return to the restaurant, and dine on garden-fresh vegetables, wild game, fresh seafood, shellfish, and a bounty of other seasonal delicacies.
