World's Greatest Dream Trips

“It seems amazing, with hiking, turquoise water, great food,
and varied scenery.” —Joanne Papineau
Stay: On almost 6,000 acres of fields and forests in southern Corsica, an estate with 16 former shepherds’ houses has been transformed into Domaine de Murtoli (from $2,975 per week); options include a luxurious villa with a private beach and a cottage surrounded by oak and olive trees.
Eat: At La Ferme de Campo di Monte, near the northern village of Murato, Pauline and Jo Julliard serve family-style meals of Corsican cuisine—house-made charcuterie; sweet beignets with fig jam—inside a 17th-century stone farmhouse.
Do: Dramatic cliff-top vistas and sleepy beach towns dot the Sentier des Douaniers, a 12-mile coastal trail around the northern Cap Corse peninsula. The secluded Capo di Feno is a surfing hot spot—but the soft, chalk-white sand is ideal for a solitary, sun-drenched snooze.
