Dinner in the Mountains

For those who have had the privilege of dining here, this is the best restaurant in Corsica.

In the small village of Peri, 30 minutes from Ajaccio, there is a family inn, perched like an eagle's nest on the top of a mountain.

The menu is unique and truly hearty, with echoes of a traditional Corsican Sunday meal: local bean, chard and pancetta soup, regional charcuterie, courgette flower fritters, cannelloni filled with brocciu, a traditional Corsican cheese, meat dishes and great desserts.

At dusk, the view of the valley is truly magnificent from this traditional south-Corsican spot, and the light of the oil lamps magic. Service is friendly and thoughtful. You might meet the owners, who are responsible for infusing this unconventional place with its authentic character. Here, learning to cook is a family affair, and the must-try recipe for courgette flower fritters has spread by word-of-mouth beyond the Mediterranean. But, according to locals, this typical dish was born here...
