Upon arrival in the hotel we were guided through the garden with its two swimming pools to our room which was at the very end of the domain. The room was spacious, offering all comfort you need (nice bathroom, good bed, airco, coach,...). Parking is a bit of a challenge. The way the parking lot is set up is not... More

This was a nice hotel. The staff was polite and helpful. The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast, which was included in our rate was excellent, with a large variety of foods and beverages of high quality.

I'll start with the goods points, the hotel accommodation is excellent, the rooms are spacious, well furnished and the immediate surroundings very pleasant. The swimming pool is a gem, for an outdoor pool it is just the right temperature, no intake of breath when you enter. The breakfast is excellent with lots of choice, fresh coffee, meat, cheese, fresh fruit,... More

Erbalunga is one of the most beautiful villages in Corsica – picture perfect and a good base to visit the Cap Corse. The hotel has beautiful buildings, is surrounded by lovely and well maintained gardens, has a swimming pool, a spa and lots of... More

We loved Corsica and had a great 16 day holiday there. This was our last stay and perhaps I expected too much - it was pleasant but not particularly "Corsican" and I was quite surprised that there was no view on an island where it is almost impossible to AVOID having a view. We contacted in advance for advice about... More

Thank you for your feedback on your stay with us. We are sorry that our home was not to your taste and that the view from your room was not what you expected, but as you will have seen by now, the hotel is oriented towards Brando valley rather than towards the sea (from which Corsicans generally shy away from...

Our stay in Castel Brando was very relaxing and comfortable. It was nice to return at the end of the day and relax in the gardens. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and courteous. A 5 star experience at a 2 star cost.

Staff very friendly and pleasant rooms. Good for children with heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi. Good breakfast but don't forger the excellent bakery just across the road, well worth a visit. Also a trip to the restaurant Chez-nous in Corsican is well worth while, excellent food and good choices of local products.

A must visit to a place of beauty and tranquility . The hotel is fabulous and everything about it is relaxed and elegant . Whilst we know a little French , having an English speaking hotel reception was very helpful.
