Sitting in London coming up with ideas for new oak beds, we
decided to go for inspiration to an amazing place we'd heard about
in Corsica called Murtoli. Check
it out here. It's an enormous nature reserve sandwiched between
the mountains and the sea -so you get the best of both worlds.
There are a small number of very secluded and beautifully
restored cottages on the estate. Our one looked like Bilbo Baggins'
house from outside, and the inside was decorated with old French
beds and furniture, reclaimed Belgian tiles and Indian bed
linen. And best of all the kitchen equipment was top notch -nothing
like the Ikea stuff you get in most rentals!
After a lardy breakfast of croissants and cafe au lait, it was a
25 minute walk down to the mile long private sandy beach -and along
the way we always met wild boar, cows, eagles and kites.
This was all a real tonic, but what really caught our eye was
the cool driftwood furniture down on the beach.
Valerie and her husband Paul who own Murtoli have an incredible
eye for simplicity. We also noticed that they always sported
different brand new Converse trainers every day which went very
well with their perfect tans! So it was with a head full of their
style that we packed our bags and headed back to Blighty, only just
in time to make our connecting flight for a buying trip to India.
And we made sure we got ourselves some new Cons too!
