History & Story
Property professional and vice-chairman of Porto Vecchio Chamber of Commerce Jean-Noël Marcellesi purchased an old hotel establishment in 2001 and opened it three years later as Casadelmar. To complement its unique location on a designated conservation coastline overlooking the magnificent Bay of Porto Vecchio, Marcellesi, passionate about his island and respectful of its authentic values, decided to endow the hotel with the best Corsica has to offer.
He commissioned a highly talented, internationally recognised team of skilled professionals to help them take up the challenge.
Gian Luca Bertilaccio, the hotel’s managing director, collaborated on the design of the building. Fabio Bragagnolo, our Italian chef, combines the purest local ingredients to bring out all their flavours.

Blending harmoniously into this incomparable nature is Casadelmar. Located at the water’s edge on the Palombaggia road a few kilometres from Porto Vecchio, the hotel stands in two hectares of lush, terraced, landscaped gardens planted with shade-giving yews and umbrella pines.
