Just twenty minutes from the stunning hilltop town of Porto Vecchio, in the heart of Corsica's lush Ospedale Forest, you will find an eco-paradise that's quite unlike any other.
Glamping Corsica consists of ‘Cocoon Village', four serene eco-bubbles for two people, magically suspended from a cliff to provide you with the very best, most truly breathtaking views of the sparkling Gulf of Porto-Vecchio and out to Sardinia.
You'll find no running water or electricity here, yet with so much natural beauty, fresh air and magical innovation on offer you'll soon find you don't need them! You'll find a dry toilet and a solar shower within your bubble, and you'll be provided with all the essentials needed for your stay, including a solar lamp, towels and plenty of natural mineral water.
Steeped in forest enchantment, this is the place to visit if you're in need of somewhere to really get away from it all. By evening, your bubble is lit by the moon and stars, along with light from solar terminals that make for a magically romantic atmosphere as you look over the illuminated town of Porto Vecchio below. By day, simply luxuriate in the lush, sweet-scented vegetation and stunning views all around you.
Choose your favourite from four bubbles, all equipped with fresh bedding and a true sense of natural luxury that will make you feel as though you're really living on air!
You'll find ‘Cocoon One' surrounded by centuries-old whispering trees that adorn a terrace overlooking the Gulf of Porto Vecchio, while ‘Cocoon Two' is suspended over ten metres above the ground for that blissful impression of being far away from everyday life. Meanwhile, ‘Cocoon Three' is the most secluded bubble, accessed via a small lamp-strewn path that winds along the cliff. 'Cocoon Four' in the latest addition and has a unique dome roof and equally stunning views from a wood terrace.
Enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast basket each morning, served on the terrace of your bubble - what could be better than to enjoy fresh local produce surrounded by those amazing panoramic views? For an extra treat, why not indulge in a Corsican wine basket, or a delicious meal made from local ingredients?
If you feel like escaping from your cosy bubble at any point, you'll find plenty of ways to while away your time. The local village is friendly and dotted with shops and restaurants to explore, while those who enjoy relaxing on soft sandy beaches won't be disappointed with the selection on offer here. Why not learn a new watersport, or take a trip on a glass-bottomed boat and view life under the waves?
Porto Vecchio itself is a maze of cobbled streets you'll enjoy getting lost in, as you take in all the sights of Corsica at its most traditional. Closer to home, you'll find Ospedale Forest is a hiker's paradise, with clearly marked paths that lead you amongst the pine trees and granite boulders (don't forget your camera!)
Return to life in your eco-bubble, pour yourselves a soothing glass of Corsican wine...and breathe easy. Time in the slow lane has surely never been better spent.
Things to note
