Fodor's Expert Review Hotel La Signoria

Rte. de la Forêt de Bonifato, Calvi, Corsica, 20260, France

Set amid acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, this luxury property sits in the shadow of mountains near Bonifato Valley. From the minute you step onto the honeycombed terra-cotta tiles of this historic 17th-century country manor—a former Genoese estate bestowed by King Louis XV—you'll see why it's part of the luxurious Relaix & Châteaux collection. Interesting artworks on the grounds include a statue of two women wandering through the garden. All rooms have a balcony or terrace. There are also apartments and villas. Amenities include an outdoor pool, a large indoor hot tub, and a modest sauna, steam room, and gym. The breakfast buffet is generous, ranging from wild strawberries and figs to local cheeses and cold cuts to five varieties of bread, including one made from chestnut flour.
