EUROPE CORSICA "Where hunting, nature, gastronomy & wine, local lifestyle, privacy, family and friends come all together"
Owner: Paul Canarelli
At the southern tip of Corsica, between the sea and the mountains, lies an immense estate in the heart of a valley carved by the Ortolo River. Its name is Murtoli, a secret destination whispered about by those in the know. This unique setting has a poetic air, with 2500 hectares of completely wild bush-covered terrain where flora and fauna have been left to thrive untouched. The Domaine de Murtoli offers many inviting coves and an endless white sand beach that stretches over 8 kilometers along the Mediterranean Sea, a true paradise.
Manager: Guillaume Le Berre
A 5-star hotel like no other Murtoli origins are more alive than ever with veals and cows risen up, hundreds of goats to make the traditional cheese, its own olive oil, honey, jam, mirtle liquor. The Domaine de Murtoli offers you a unique and atypical accommodation among 20 shepherd houses restored from the 17th century with daily housekeeping service and breakfast delivery.

Here, visitors can hunt accompanied by the game keeper Jean-François and his team. Although the estate provides dogs, shotguns and rifles, there are also kennels to accommodate our canine guests.
Hunting but not only...Big Game Fishing, Freshwater fishing, Golf, Horse Riding The domain welcomes visitors for the hunting season from October to the end of February (according to the legal dates). Wild boar is the big game here and is hunted in the traditional local beating method, with a pack of hounds and beaters, or from a hide early in the season. Small game, like partridge, pheasant and hare live on the grounds, which are also a choice landing spot for migratory birds such as thrush, woodcock, doves and ducks, depending on the season.

Fishing for the Most Avid Sportsman At the Murtoli Estate, fishermen can also pursue their passion, with fishing opportunities many sportsmen only dream of. All year round, lure trolling fishing is offered for tuna, such as amberjack, leerfish and domti. Those who prefer line fishing can catch sizable pajots, sargo bream and sand steenbras, which can be grilled for a tasty meal, or like dentis are used as bait for deeper sea fishing. On the coast, there are spear fishing or surf casting excursions for catching sea bream or sea bass. In August, September and October, join us for the big game fishing season, with our captains aboard our 22-foot Boston whealer fully equipped fishing boats, for deep sea fishing allowed only at competition time and for deep sea net fishing to bring in the largest catches.. For all golf lovers, a very unique 12-hole golf course is offered on site, designed by Kyle Phillips. The hunters can come along with his/her family as everyone will find something to do in Murtoli : botanical walks, sea coast walks, hikings the hills and the rocks, horseback riding in the Ortolo valley, Corsican cooking lessons, massages, farm life discovery and so much more.
At the end of the day, just sit down in the comfortable armchairs of the Farm bar, and chill around the fireplace, while tasting a nice glass of Corsican wine, sharing your emotions of the day, right before a dinner in one of our restaurants : The Farm table or the even more epic Grotto restaurant. The Domaine de l'Ortolo is all about sharing great moments within family and friends while discovering the local lifestyle. PARTNER LODGES
