In Bonifacio, the traditional values of the Amadei family are condensed in this outstanding luxury eco-friendly property: ‘Cala di Greco epitomises the best of what of Corsica has to offer’. In the early 1990s, to cater to high-end tourists, the Terra Marina residence was created.
Growing up on this beautiful part of the island, Joan, the son, readily shares his parents’ values and experience, as well as instilling this venue with his own brand of passion and high standards.
A champion of family culture and professional know-how, he took the relay by creating the Cala di Greco, an exceptional Corsican house. In 2013, Joan Amadei built his luxury boutique hotel in the heart of nature using local materials.
Eschewing ostentatious decor, he imprinted his understated style and simplicity on this luxury hotel. His unique vision has created a perfect microcosm suspended between the sea and the sky; this young creative dedicates to a few like his incredibly beautiful island.
A little piece of land that is passionately cherished for a very good reason. It is a result of this love, shaped by his intimate knowledge and love of the land, that Joan Amadei’s project came to pass.
Only an aesthetic developed with attention to detail and sensitivity was worthy of integrating this natural splendour. For this stunning Southern Corsican boutique hotel, nature provided the land, stone and wood required for its construction and decor.
The natural environment and contemporary architectural design mutually perfectly compliment one other on this 30,000 m2 property dotted with native trees, which houses the understated luxury suites with their private patios and balconies.
In addition to the exceptional levels of comfort offered at the Cala di Greco, its concept is made clear in the constant dialogue between the natural environment and what has been built by human hands.
The borders between the inside and outside are blurred by the light, fragrances, marine breezes and the power of the land.

WHAT TO SEE IN BONIFACIO
In the far south of Corsica nestled against its white cliffs, the unique city of Bonifacio is reflected in the transparent turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The upper part of Bonifacio and the heart of the city – the medieval citadel so beloved of the islanders – offers pleasant historical walks with stunning panoramic views.
Its beautiful fortress is built on a site that is as impenetrable as it is impressive: a limestone peninsula, 150 m wide and 200 m long, whose settlement can be traced back to the Neolithic period. In 1195, the Genoese colonised this unique site.
With its cliffs, legendary staircase, labyrinth of old stone buildings and unexpected views, this gem of a city is a fascinating mix of wild untamed nature and Corsican culture. From an environmental point of view, Bonifacio is one of the most protected sites on the island.
Throughout your walk, enjoy sensational views and soak up the beauty. During your visit to beautiful Bonifacio, don’t miss the King of Aragon’s Stairway. According to legend, this unusual stairway was dug out in a single night in 1420 by just one soldier from the King’s troops.
Don’t forget to visit the mysterious Grain de Sable sculpted by the wind and sea; the Citadel guarding its position from its promontory and its ramparts; Gothic, Romanesque, Neo-Byzantine…
Bonifacio’s five churches give visitors a good overview of the history of this Mediterranean city whose inhabitants have actively supported religious communities since the 13th century; the lavish white graves of the Cimetiere Marin; the Gouvernail de la Corse and its underground passages; the imposing Bastion de l’Etendard, the centrepiece of the fortifications revealing ‘1,000 years of Bonifacio’s history’; and much more.
Bonifacio’s charm can also be found in the heart of the city. On market days (Tuesday and Friday mornings), sample the variety of products made by local artisans; there are also stalls selling clothing, accessories and seasonal items.
And don’t forget the shops, restaurants, cafés, harbour, etc. A thousand and one attractions await you in this picturesque and lively little town whether its day or night.
