Our different Domains as well as workshops (storage, woodworks, cheese dairy) are specifically concentrated along the peninsula of Palombaggia. Our developments and projects are driven by some key guiding principles: respecting the landscape, giving back what it offers, conservation and integration, merging and reusing materials which are in the environment.
More recently, our collaboration with Mr. Rogliano, horticulture producer specialised in the cultivation of aromatic and wild plants of Corsica (brand Corsica Grana) enables us to further vary even more our landscaping services by way of creations such as immortelle carpets, arba santa, nepita…
Increasingly rooted in the preservation of our natural heritage…
Harmonious integration into the landscape and environment is paramount for us
The latter is returned to the original state once the site is completed. The materials used are in the most part local, the walls are built in stone extracted from the land and shaped at the same location. Natural materials (stone, wood, travertine, terracotta, clay brick, lime…) for the construction as well as local vegetation in the gardens.
This existing vegetation present on the land (olive trees, mastic trees, myrtle, heather, arbousier trees…) is partially removed before the beginning of the work to be replanted in the gardens of the properties. The other part, mainly Cypress and Juniper is used for exterior Pergola frames. The chestnut and laricio Pine woods come from Corsican forests. Other materials and specific pieces come from demolitions; we give a second life to terracotta and old tiles, wooden beams, stone fireplaces…
