A deep dive into the world of Macallan Scotch whisky.

Steps from the beach on this still amazingly "undiscovered" Mediterranean island, La Maison Rorqual is a rustic stone farmhouse that has been spectacularly reimagined as an art-filled five- room guesthouse. Owner Guy Baldrichi was so inspired by the woods and stones on his pastoral property that he used those very materials to craft innovative touches: mosaic pebble floors, polished chestnut tables, sculpted driftwood showers. The airy rooms, outfitted with wrought-iron beds and island antiques, possess patios overlooking the sea (the view from the infinity pool is similarly astounding). And when all that nature gets you craving civilization, the lively night scene at the port of St.-Florent is just minutes away.

From $455; 33-4/9537-0537; maison-rorqual.com.
