What if your picnic, as well as being tasty, was environmentally friendly, too?

The word "picnic" reminds us of our childhood. Of childhood Sundays. When we watched with envy as the "grown-ups" filled their plastic boxes with hearty salads, sandwiches of all kinds and other treats. We travelled along country roads, by the sea or at the foot of the mountains, impatient, hungry, looking for the ideal spot. Where we’d spread the blanket on the ground, lay out the familiar boxes just out of the cooler and, finally, tuck into our long-awaited picnic. Those Sundays had an unforgettable taste, joyful and carefree.

Romain, a skipper with a big heart

Talking about yourself isn’t always easy. Romain wouldn’t disagree on this point. When we asked him to open up to us because we wanted to introduce him to you through this blog, he was a man of few words. Not due to lack of cooperation, but rather modesty. And that's what we also love about Romain. His modesty, his candour, his discretion. "Also" because we love lots of other things about this young man. His beautiful eyes, of course, but above all, his seriousness, professionalism and kindness. His patience and calm.

Only drinks o’clock will do!

Let's not beat about the bush, the essential moment of any holiday, one definitely not to be missed, is ... drinks o’clock!

What is drinks o’clock? It's simple. Simple and delicious as an unforgettable moment, an exceptional moment. Would you like to know a little more about how to enjoy it yourself? Here are a few instructions.

First, take a comfortable seat on one of the bar's terraces. Now gaze into the intense azure of the Mediterranean. For a few seconds (or minutes - you choose), think of nothing other than the surrounding nature and having the chance to enjoy this experience.

Three beaches, three different atmospheres

So, would you say you’re quite sporty, prefer to laze around, or maybe ... discover things? More comfort than nature? Maybe a little bit of everything at the same time? Or maybe it depends on how you’re feeling on the day. Whatever the case, we ask the question to better advise you about our beaches. That’s right, beaches... Because here, at the foot of the U Capu Biancu hotel, there are three different beaches. Three beaches whose pace, atmosphere and scenery are different.

A little rock never hurt anyone. Quite the contrary! Especially to celebrate a birthday...

Rock, variety, pop, talent and music. People dance, people sing, people "party" - in short, we celebrate and live life to the full.

The energy of the sea
The love story between the U Capu Biancu hotel and the sea has been years in the making. This alliance, based on respect, has spawned an idea: to use naturally renewable marine thermal energy to drastically reduce our gas and electricity consumption. Because we have to start somewhere, we decided to start by establishing a hybrid hydro power station using the thermal energy of fresh water. And so our idea became a project. And the project became ... reality

No more single use!
There are fights that are thought to be lost before we even begin, as the work seems so very heavy. As our projects are so huge and complex. And it's true. However, faced with this fact, we at the U Capu Biancu four-star luxury hotel ask ourselves: so what? So what? Since when has difficult meant impossible? And why should luxury mean waste and pollution? For us, the words "impossible", "waste" and "pollution" are anything but ... "Capu-esque"! When we decided to drastically reduce single-use items in our large house, we knew it would be a daunting task. But that didn't stop us from embarking on a real hunt to get rid of single-use plastic.

When love meets U Capu Biancu
If love were a colour, it would be a blur of Mediterranean green, blue, yellow and ochre. If love were a perfume, it would be tinged with myrtle and mastic, sea salt and humus. If love were a flavour, it would have the wild taste of Corsica and the mixed flavour of the world. If love could be felt, it would be as warm as wood, as firm as the stone of Bonifacio and as soft as cotton. If love were a drink, it would be a cocktail of vitamins, a tannin-packed wine or a spring water. If love were a land, it would be an island. The island of Corsica. If love were a country, that country would undoubtedly be called … U Capu Biancu

Notice to seasonal workers: the U Capu Biancu hotel is recruiting!
Elsewhere, they might refer to you as seasonal workers. You are those employees hired for a given time, a specific period of the year. You come and you go. From one region to another. From one institution to another. From one season to another. And because of this roaming, they often underestimate your qualities, they do not always take you seriously, and they might even mistreat you. But do you know what we say about them?  Forget them!
