We stayed at this hotel at the end of our honeymoon for a week. Erbalunga is a small quaint fishing village with some fantastic restaurants on the harbour front. The hotel itself is very charming, with a lovely communal lounge with period features. The rooms themselves are tastefully decorated and benefit from a large TV and Wi-Fi. There are two... More

I thought this was a lovely hotel with a good atmosphere and great layout. It's quite large but has the feeling of a very small and intimate boutique hotel. The rooms were neatly organized across a couple of buildings. With one small swimming pool and a larger one in the main garden area. It is only a short walk from... More

We arrived at Castel Brando after dark and rather travel-weary and loved the place at first sight. Set in the delightful village of Erbalunga, it's an oasis of calm - charming staff, nothing is too much trouble, beautiful gardens, swimming pool surrounded with lounger chairs, jacuzzi, and perfect rooms - immaculate, comfortable and spacious, well-equipped en suite bathrooms. Next morning... More

This is a beautiful property with lovely, spacious rooms (and air-conditioning that works) and a staff so charming you'll want to pack them up and take them home so you can be friends forever. Erbalunga is also a gem. Michelin-starred Le Pirate is very good and the staff seem pleased to see you. You'll have a hard time finding a... More

Splendidly appointed, unashamedly four star, impeccable service, spotless, personal attention, attention to detail, these are the hallmarks of the splendid Castel Brando in Erbalunga, Corsica. While the 'heated' pool could be warmer and the breakfast less pricey and less catch-all european (more frenchified please), the croissants from the baker over the road are the best in the world. The village... More

Vacation at it's best. Wonderfull place carefully reconstructed in the true spirit. If you want to feel as if you are important as a guest, this is the place. The rooms are unique light and inviting. Take a swim in one og the pools or use the jazuci. This is a place I'll always recomend.

This is a lovely boutique hotel - just as the description and pictures on the website. All of the staff were extremely courteous and the hotel rooms and grounds kept pristine. The pools are also lovely. The location of Erbalunga is a delight - totally unspoilt but still has plenty of restaurants to choose from - we tried several and... More

This was our second visit to this property having initially stayed here back in August 2006 for a 10 day vacation. This time we visited with eight friends for the first week in September for a whole week in Erbalunga and this being so, the August crowds had decamped the day before our arrival and so the town(village) was a...

We loved the two swimming pools, the sprawling grounds, the service and cleanliness. Our very large room - with a tiny terrace - was quiet and peaceful, and the superb air con made the heat of Erbalunga bearable when we came back from outings each afternoon. The shower was the most powerful ever! The hotel is right across the road... More
