This is a delightful and historic property in a wonderful location. The village of Erbalunga is charming. It is a great base to visit all the wonderful villages of Cap Corse as well as Bastia. The gardens are delightful and the swimming pool is large and great for doing laps. The staff is most welcoming and anxious to be helpful.... More

Very impressed by this hotel with comfy rooms, lovely gardens and excellent heated swimming pool. Breakfast with a good spread of food or an evening nightcap in the courtyard under the trees was very pleasant. Erbalunga across the road is a very attractive pedestrianised village with a little harbour and plenty of places to choose from to eat or drink,... More

We spent four nights at Castel Brando in Erbalunga. A charming hotel in a former residence. The pool and gardens were lovely - many old trees for shade and beautiful flowering plants. We stayed in the main mansion in a small suite. It was very comfortable and we loved the view of the main street with the local people going... More

We arrived in Corsica only to stay at this fabulous hotel as we explored Cap Corse. A charming in with a history all its on. The owners treat you like family. Don't miss Le Pirate across the street, a Michelin one star restaurant.
