The Ile de Cavallo is one of Europe’s premier ‘barefoot living’ destinations, and the island’s one and only hotel is the perfect place to revel in those most elusive of modern luxuries: space and time.
Arriving by boat on the island the pristine beaches are a stunning sight. The island is completely free of cars and guests can walk, cycle or explore the island by golf buggy.
The hotel is constructed of local stone, so close to the water in places that it feels as though you could lean out and trail your fingers through the sparkling turquoise shallows. Most of the 50 bedrooms overlook the sea and the distinctive granite boulders of the Lavezzi Islands, and the gorgeous white sand beach is never more than a meander away.
The snorkelling and diving on Cavallo is outstanding, but if sea swimming does not appeal then a lounger awaits you by the pool or in the spa, which offers a full range of beauty and wellness treatments. The hotel aims to nourish body as well as soul, serving modern Italian and French dishes in its waterside restaurant, preceded perhaps by a chilled aperitif on the terrace.
The Hôtel & Spa des Pêcheurs is neither glitzy nor ostentatious, as befits the back-to-nature atmosphere of the island, but the service is unfailingly warm and welcoming. We are proud to be the only UK company to feature this unique and very special place.
