What we like about this property

We’re always discovering something new and amazing in Corsica, and this beautifully restored former convent in the heart of the mountains and the maquis reminds us of why we return every year to our island home. With beautiful views of the Tyrrhenian, amazingly preserved history and delicious cuisine, we’ll be back…. For a short video, click here.

Description

Located above the northeastern coast of Corsica on the Cap Corse, this former 15th century Capuchin convent was home to monks before it was acquired in 1796 by a local noble family in whose hands it has remained since.

The beauty of the original structure and dedication and passion of the owners to preserve its authentic charm is evident throughout. Classic and traditional, all of the decor, furnishings and original paintings bring back the rich history and timeless appeal. With seven double rooms and three singles, the house sleeps up to fifteen. Each a time capsule of history and refinement, some still feature the original layout of the monk’s cells.

You can have your choice to rent the whole property or come as a B&B guest and enjoy the delicious local cuisine from your hosts. The terraces, solarium and extensive gardens are lush and private and along with the pool offer amazing views of the countryside and out to sea. 

This property is also available as a vacation rental and for events.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Breakfast included. Table d’hotes for lunch and dinner available. Wifi throughout, cable TV, stereo and audio systems. Housekeeping and laundry services. Parking.

    Beautiful property and Emmanuelle is a fantastic host. We experienced wonderful hospitality and Emmanuelle’s home cooked Corsican dinners were a real highlight. We would highly recommend staying at this property.

    Il convento was truly special. The most beautiful, and quiet retreat I’ve taken in a long time. Emmanuelle was the best host, her property is simple and refined and her food is the best.  We look forward everyday to seat and dine al fresco.
    Truly memorable
