Come entranced with the sweet spring smell of the maquis. The wind settles down, the bees steal, the birds sing, the sun cuddles us, the maquis takes on its most beautiful colors; it’s time !

The time to open the doors of the resort!

Less than 15 minutes from Porto-Vecchio, at the exit of the village of Piccovaggia, on the road to the beach of Palombaggia, nestled in the countryside, in the middle of olive trees, arbutus, … Residence Les Oliviers de Palombaggia awakens!

One by one, each of our villas is filled with this sweet spring agitation. The first rays of sunlight all of them. The wind envelops them with local scents and for their pleasure the beach of Palombaggia takes on its most beautiful colors.

The whole team of Oliviers de Palombaggia is busy getting rid of the winter coat!

Especially since 2019 sees new renovations appear: Suites with heated private pool. But hush … Let’s be patient and come to discover them for yourself …

We invite you to join us between tranquility and authenticity since 8 May 2019.

An Old Friend

After the village Piccovaggia, on the road to Palombaggia beach, hiden inisde the corsican maquis, the Résidence Les Oliviers de Palombaggia welcomes invariably, every day, an old friend.

He was here from the start, at every steps we made, for each new villa…

And today, he is our only witness of our last renovation : the new Pool Suites.

All year, he is playing with the trees, parfuming the air. He gives a voice to each of our villas and makes them talk, he knows all their outlines. The Wind delivers, every day, at very season, to each of our villas, to each of our guests, his melodies.

Every corsican people learn to live with him. How to read him, to feel him, knowing if he will be helpfull today or not.

The wind draws Corsica island and exposes for our best pleasure its true beauty and its secrets. He is responsible, in the same time, of the swell, the ocean current and of the sea level change at the cost. Palombaggia beach becomes one of this most beautifull masterpiece.

Belong the corsican costs, you will find different characters of the wind :
U LIBECCIO strong wind from West to South-West;
U MAESTRALE from North to North-West ;
A TRAMUNTANA from North to North-East, violent and cold wind;
U LEVANTE from East;
U GRECALE from East to North-East;
U SIROCCO from South to South-East, hot and humid wind.

The wind is his own Master. In the same time past, present and futur, he guides us, he told us about Corsica History, l’ïle de beauté.

Christmas in Corsica – The Christmas’ tales…

Corsica is a mysterious island made of tradition and generosity, so what better period could describe it than Christmas? It is under the summer sun that you have left your villa at Les Oliviers de Palombaggia in Porto –Vecchio, but it is the story of our island in winter that we will tell you …

In Corsica, children and grownups enjoy the Holiday traditions; however the “7 evenings” tradition is very much popular with children. The custom wants that the week before Christmas the children of the village gather in small groups and pay a visit to 7 families, each evening a different family. Children bring a log to be burned in the fireplace, around which they will share tales and stories with their host alongside a good laugh and eating delicious Frappe and Canistrelli…
On Christmas’ eve, do not forget to take care of your guest by putting one log per guest in the fireplace, thus giving them all a good health for the year to come…
From the residence and its stone houses, Les Oliviers de Palombaggia’s team wishes you a wonderful Christmas made of conviviality and sweet moments…

Bon Natale a tutti !
Merry Christmas !

Christmas in Corsica – L’ochju . . .

Corsica is a mysterious island made of tradition and generosity, so what better period could describe it than Christmas?  It is under the summer sun that you have left your villa at Les Oliviers de Palombaggia in Porto –Vecchio, but it is the story of our island in winter that we will tell you …

In addition of being good eaters, Corsican are superstitious, traditions and rituals are numerous as December 24th approaches. The best known of all, and probably one of the most important as well, is “the ochju”, means “evil eye” or bad luck… Few of us have the power to ward off this spell. Indeed the ritual is learned only on Christmas’ eve and is passed from generation to generation, traditionally from grandmother to granddaughter.
If there are many different beliefs and way of doing it, all are meant to protect you from jealous people and negative thoughts. To help you with that, there is something as beautiful as powerful that you may find…Perhaps while walking on the fine white sand of Palombaggia beach you will have the luck to find an “oeil de sainte lucie”. This small shell with soft colors, white with a brown twirling line, will be a wonderful holiday souvenir and a powerful lucky charm that will protect you from the “ochju”, this one is a keeper…

Christmas in Corsica

Corsica is a mysterious island made of tradition and generosity, so what better period could describe it than Christmas? It is under the summer sun that you have left your villa at Les Oliviers de Palombaggia in Porto –Vecchio, but it is the story of our island in winter that we will tell you …

Around the 24th and 25th of December a very special atmosphere comes to invade the Corsican villages. Families gather there and meet elders, share secret family recipe and recollect children’s memories and anecdotes.
It is indeed, at that time of the year that you can truly taste the Corsican culture and gastronomy… Canistrelli, frappe, brocciu, fiadone, figatelli, prizuttu, pulenta, clementines…
The best of what Corsica has to offer is to be found on your table, and do not forget “u piattu di u puvarettu”, the poor man’s dish, another cover at the Christmas table for anyone in needs who comes to your door, Corsican hospitality is not a myth…

In autumn, nature and food lover gather around a beautiful table for sweet moments of sharing. Grilled figatellu, Pulenta, Pain des morts, Brocciu, Clementines…so many pleasure from our region and our heritage…The Casa di Petra farm, located a few steps away from our houses and sheepfolds celebrates this culinary heritage thank to its beekeeping farm and the autumn honey harvest but also thanks to its goat herd and the production of fresh brocciu, the must have on your table for the Holidays!
