• Rooms
    The simple, elegant rooms at Castel Brando are split between four beautiful coloured houses. La Demeure, the main residence of the hotel, dates back to 1853 and has the original thick stone walls and vaulted ceilings which are set against the ancient and traditional terracotta floors. All four houses have a Mediterranean feel, and the antiques and 19th-century decorative pieces give a real sense of Corsican history.  All of the rooms are air-conditioned and come with flat screen TVs with English channels. There is disabled access in two of the rooms which have been specifically designed for easy access and mobility.

    Corsican welcome drink


    Low key, simple and charming, Castel Brando sits in the Cap Corse area of Corsica and is just 100 metres from the Mediterranean sea. This lovely hotel is in the village of Erbalunga, known as one of Corsica's most unspoilt spots and also as a hideaway for many international celebrities.


    A few minutes away by car is the ancient city of Bastia; with its old port, alleys and citadel, it is a nice place to enjoy a stroll. Castel Brando is the perfect starting point for visiting High-Corsica as it is only one hour from the Castagnicca region and two hours from the Balagne-Calvi & Ile Rousse region. Complimentary tennis is just 200 metres from Castel Brando and bicycles and kayaks can be hired on the beach.

    Sunny terraces filled with birdsong lead you to the two swimming pools, the Jacuzzi and the L'Olivier Spa. Only a few steps away is the historical village of Erbalunga itself where you can enjoy the bustling cafes, restaurants and the little harbour. To help maintain the natural environment of Corsica, Castel Brando has put into place eco-friendly measures throughout the hotel wherever possible.


    The delicious organic breakfast is usually served on the patio or inner courtyard next to a magnificent 100-year old olive tree and pretty antique fountain. On cooler nights head indoors to the cosy library and enjoy a glass of wine, or sit at the bar on the terrace. From June to October, a snack menu is available, celebrating local produce with delightful light bites.
