Trained in Corsica, Christophe Bacquié discovered gastronomy thanks to the family hotel and restaurant in the village of Lumio (Haute-Corse). He then joined the Île Rousse hotel school to learn how to serve in the dining room, before finding that the kitchen suited him better.
After having studied at the Meridien Montparnasse, he improved his skills in various establishments, including the Vincennes racecourse. At just 25 years old, he returned to his native island and joined the command of La Villa in Calvi where he served for 12 years. He obtained his first star in the Michelin Guide in 2002 and his second star in 2007, becoming the first double starred chef on the Ile de Beauté. In 2004, Christophe Bacquié won the title of one of "Meilleurs Ouvriers de France". In 2009, he decided to take up a new challenge by taking control of the kitchens at Hôtel du Castellet, in the Var hinterland.
Between land and sea, his cuisine focuses on Mediterranean products, market gardeners, cheese makers and local producers. In 2018, he obtained his third star in the Michelin Guide.
