La Dimora is a charming boutique hotel with a personal service, not far from St Florent.

Originally an 18th-century Corsican farmhouse, la Dimora has been beautifully renovated to create an elegant character boutique hotel with a very intimate and personal feel. Immersed in wonderful grounds of fragrant lavender and ancient olive trees, the hotel features a fabulous secluded pool area along with plenty of comfortable patio sofas and plush cushions to relax on. The rooms are set away from the pool area and are arranged around a courtyard – each is uniquely decorated, stylishly blending the building’s original stonework with solid wood and cast iron. Try the lounge bar for an early apéritif or to sample some of the best regional wines, our guests often tell us it’s the perfect venue to unwind before venturing out into town for dinner. 

St Florent is only a short drive away and will charm you with its relaxed pace of life, chic quayside lined with an array of bars and restaurants and its historic citadel. La Dimora is the ideal choice for couples and ticks all the boxes for a serene escape in a truly Corsican setting. 

Official local hotel rating: 4 star

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Set inland from the coast, Arzachena is a bustling market town with plenty of shops and services available. At the centre of town lies the Piazza Risorgimeto, a lively square surrounded by restaurants and bars. The area offers several hidden treasures including mysterious nuraghe (stone towers) ruins and giant tombs, arguably the best of their kind in Sardinia as well as some of the most attractive beaches.

BEACHES

Tanca Manna
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.

Capriccioli
The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.

Spiaggia del Principe
Rather off the beaten track is the Spiaggia del Principe which cannot be reached by car. The last stretch has to be done on foot takes under 10 minutes and is well worth the effort.

Pevero Golf Course
