Amid the green valley of Regino, the quaint village of Muro is surrounded with olive and cherry trees, sweet chestnuts, blackberry bushes and almond trees. Among those various fruit trees, a Corsican historic monument has been renovated and turned into a boutique hotel, A Casa Theodora. The establishment draws its name from regional history, since this 16th-century palazzu welcomed King Theodore of Corsica during the island's short-lived independent kingdom (1736-1740).
Today, the inside section of the house is filled with works of art by Alexandre Gianninelli, paying tribute to the island's rich past. The rooms bear evocative names (“Reale”, “Boudoir”, “Napoleon”, “Faune”…) and the “Primavera” suite is ideal for families with its two bedrooms, ogive ceiling and gorgeous frescoes – including flower painting from the 17th-century! Ancient furniture, old floorboards and period decoration make this guesthouse a relaxing stopover. Birds singing and faint noise from village life will gladly take the place of your alarm clock.
Only a few miles away from Lumio, Calvi and Île Rousse, in the very heart of the Balagne region, this mansion is the most magically charming hotel you can dream of.
