Lumio is a truly exceptional village. Just west of Calvi, it is perched on a sun-drenched hillside surrounded by flower gardens and vineyards. In ancient times, the village was the base for a sun-worshipping cult, and became known as Ortis Culis (where the sun rises) by the Romans. Bathed in light from morning to evening, it changes constantly throughout the day. At sunset, the pink and ochre colours of the houses take on indescribable tinges that only the eye can see. It is no surprise then, that Lumio is also popular with sunseekers, and just a short drive from Chez Charles (3km) is the "Matahari" beach where Alexandre Rutili will welcome you as if you were a guest at his hotel/restaurant. For your total comfort, deck chairs and parasols may be reserved here
