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….  

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 it’s 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 timecapsule of history and refinement, some still feature the original layout of the monk’s cells. The large country kitchen can serve large groups alfresco and 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 for events and as a B&B.

    It would be impossible to put into words how wonderful our time at Il Convento was. Between the house itself, the beautiful garden, and the incredible view, one is truly surrounded by beauty. In addition, Emanuelle was a wonderful, kind and easy host. The only hard part was the departure–it’s not an easy place to leave!!
