    A Celebration of Slow Living

    This old village house is a charming little nest in the sweet and authentic village of Aregnu, a celebration of what already existed brought to life with contemporary design.

    A Celebration of Slow Living

    La Casa di Salducci is a charming little nest in the sweet and authentic village of Aregnu, which is known for its 11th-century Trinity Church, a masterpiece of Roman art. It's an old village house, a celebration of what already existed brought to life with contemporary design, each item chosen with intention and heartfelt purpose. 

    Recent renovations are a collaboration between a designer, an artist, and Corsican and Lebanese architects, creating a dialogue between its two different floors, and giving the home a warm and cocooning atmosphere. The restoration has kept the thick and rounded curves of the whitewashed walls, which preserve freshness in summer and keep the warmth of the fireplace in winter.

    The white lime of the walls was enhanced by the use of old pink, grey and green by artist Nathalie Bourgogne, to remind guests of the simplicity of life in the old days. To that same end, this is a slow house, with no TV, and using only eco-friendly products.

    Outside, a small, friendly terrace provides a window into the village. It opens onto the Place de l'Ormeau, allowing guests to chat with passing villagers. This vacation home for rent in Corsica is a place where time slows down, where guests can spend the whole day in quiet contemplation, with the distinct possibility that an old neighbor will drop off fresh tomatoes and lemons, just picked from her garden.

    ADDITIONAL FEATURES

    Organic cleaning products, and complimentary natural toiletries from the region.

    AROUND

    Aregnu (the spider) is located in the rural Balagne region of Corsica, on the plain between mountains, and 15 minutes' drive to the beautiful, long white sand beach of Algajola. An ancient Phoenician port, Algajola is served by the old tramway that passes along the coast between Calvi and l’Ile Rousse.

    Walking from the village to the beach is a beautiful hike of 45 minutes along the old downhill path taken by the shepherds, crossing private gardens planted with almond trees, lemon and olive trees, and home to flocks of goats and sheep. Every August, there's an Almond Fair, which celebrates local almond products, grown for centuries on the plain.

    Aregnu is surrounded by a myriad of villages among the maquis: San Antonino, Pigna and Corbara. Make sure to visit Pigna, which holds a well-known vocal festival in July called Festivoce. It's a unique event where traditional Corsican music and visiting bands come together in the auditorium and narrow streets of the village. The auditorium is a rare piece of ecological architecture created by the Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy from raw earth, and it boasts incredible acoustics.

    Another event not to be missed is the film festival in Lama each August. Every evening as the sun goes down, a selection of international films is shown on three screens in an amazing setting. This vacation home for rent in Corsica offers the perfect opportunity to get to know this unique island community.

    LOCATION

    Aregnu, Corsica, France. Nearest airports: Calvi/Sainte Catherine (15 mins), Bastia (2 hrs).

    BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring through fall. However, spending winter can be an opportunity to explore an empty island and discover the old traditions, like the ones during Christmas, or the day of the Feast of St. Anthony Abbot, where oranges are blessed and distributed after a procession through the village.
