    Default Convent San Francescu of Oletta

    WEEKEND ESCAPE: A STUNNING CONVENT ON CORSICA

    Convent SanFrancescu of Oletta is a magical place located on the island of Corsica in France. The Franciscan convent dates back to the Eighteenth Century. It was left in ruins and artist Candida Romero spent eleven years to restore the compound to its current glory. Nowadays San Francescu has a contemporary feeling while respecting the original functionalities of the convent. It is a lively place of artistic creation in all its forms (music, photography, dance, theater etc.). The monastery is available for hire and makes a wonderful place for photo shoots and movies.

    I love it except I wouldn't have painted the wooden beams and columns in the living room white, I would have left them as is.

    I totally agree about the beams. What a great retreat building. I'd go if it's near the ocean, but what building isn't on Corsica.
