About us


We’re an anglo-corsican family, living in the French alps, with three children, the first aged 16, and 13 year old twins (in 2016).

Jocelyne grew up in Bastia and in Cap Corse, and she’s shared her love of the region with the family. After many years holidaying in Corsica, especially around Patrimonio where her mother lived, we’ve taken the step of buying our own holiday home. Nick moved to the French alps from England many years ago and met Jocelyne… he works as a software architect and is lucky enough to often be able to work from Corsica during the school holidays…

We fell in love with Casa Albore as soon as we saw the house. It’s a typical old corsican house, with 3-foot thick stone walls and wooden beams, in a region that’s almost completely unspoiled by tourism, and has a superb view out over the maquis and the sea. The house has been lived in year round and lovingly renovated over 30 years by the previous owners, M. et Mme. Savoldelli. He’s a retired cabinet maker so you can imagine the attention that has been put into the work. The Savoldellis still live in the region, and take care of the house when we are not there.
