The northernmost reaches of Cap Corse in Corsica are an escapist’s dream of rugged, hilly terrain and clear aquamarine seas. Domaine de Misincu (phoenixhotelcollection.com; from €280) in the tiny coastal commune of Cagnano is a welcome new way to capitalise on its charms.

Its 29 rooms and suites and handful of villas aim, in both design and experience, to bring the pristine Cap Corse outdoors in: the chef, who has logged stints with Hélène Darroze in London and at the French Riviera’s La Réserve de Beaulieu, looks locally for everything from honey (from the onsite apiary) to cheese (there’s a small dairy too) to the now requisite organic vegetable garden. Among Misincu’s other USPs: daily outdoor Pilates, a sprawling spa and extensive hiking trails
