The hotel itself is romantic and has an old world charm. There are a number of restaurants located across the street, seaside, and a great boulangerie on the corner. For more variety... More

A friend and I stayed at Hotel Castel Brando in early Sept and had an amazing time. The staff were really friendly and very helpful (including the charming owner). The breakfast was the best we experienced on the island, the room was spotless with a very comfortable bed and beautifully appointed. The pool area was also gorgeous. Erbalunga is a... More

Our first visit to Corsica and the first stop of our stay. Nice quaint hotel with a lovely outside sitting area and pool. Breakfast was good and certainly sufficient. The town is very small so everything was nearby . Worthwile a stay.

We had one night stay in Castel Brando, but we get relax time. Hotel in the center of village, near to all facilities, restaurants, bars, beach etc. Has nice pools (2) one for swimming and another to chill in the shadow of orange trees. Its good to stay there instead of Bastia town. Rooms are vell equipped and comfortable.
