La Signoria luxury hotel

All the happiness of the Corsican soul

La Signoria is much more than a superb Relais & Châteaux hotel! La Signoria is an experience that combines style with humanity, taste with sensations, luxury with pleasure. Its philosophy is in line with that of the Cercle des Grandes Maisons Corses, of which it is a member, which brings together creators who are passionate about their profession, in love with their island and heirs to a legendary tradition of hospitality.

In a breathtaking natural setting, La Signoria offers a discreet luxury, never ostentatious, and distils an intimate atmosphere with a scent of serenity. The owner, Jean-Baptiste Ceccaldi, offers a personalized welcome to his guests, takes care of their well-being and passes on his ancestral heritage... that of Corsican hospitality, where the notion of sharing is not an empty word!

La Signoria : the history of a domain in Corsica

With the spirit of a family home

La Signoria, also called "A casa Ceccaldi", is one of the most beautiful luxury hotels in Calvi, France. The former domain of the Paratella is at the origin of this beautiful building. Built under the Genoese rule of the island, the estate was then given to the Marquis Murat de Sisprière by Louis XV. A mansion in the 18th century, then a wine estate of about a hundred hectares or a high standing second home, it was bought in 1986 by the Ceccaldi family, professionals of Corsican tourism. Jean-Baptiste Ceccaldi took over the management of the property, had a dozen rooms fitted out and set up the restaurant in the heart of the former seigneurial residence.

Due to the growing success, extensions were added to the original house, respecting exactly the initial architectural style, all in simplicity. Old materials, patinated parquet floors, tiles, beams and tiles of the period, patiently collected over the years, dress the place. Marie Ceccaldi takes care of the decoration, the furniture and creates the Spa Bio Casanera.
