When Steve, one of the proud owners of Paris’ oldest chocolate factory À la Mère de Famille tells us his secret address, we want to fly immediately to Corsica. (and steal some the spread from him but that has nothing to do with it)
“I dream of sleeping in the perched cabin of the Cala Rossa. Called Bamboo, this small house has everything for a dream weekend: a XXL bed, a bathroom with a bathtub overlooking the sea and a terrace on stilts. Built in the Corsican pines, 100 meters from a sublime private beach, it makes me want to play the taps.
A true paradise on earth 6km from Porto-Vecchio, Le Cala Rossa is an address where calm reigns, even in the middle of August.
Best of all, Francis Péan is one of the best pastry chefs I know. He works mainly with local products such as honey, citrus fruits and hazelnuts and I melt in front of his homemade chocolate yoghurts and fresh raspberries.”
