Il Convento

Brando, Corsica, France
A Time Capsule In Corsica

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...

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 the 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.
