The buildings are situqted in a 6.91 acres park planted with one-hundred year old olive trees and palm trees on terrassed lawns on the hills overlooking Miomo at Santa Maria di Lota of Corsica. It’s a place filled with history forming a rich inheritance of the pieve of Lota, which you will discover on this page.

Today the Maison Saint Hyacinthe is attached to the Ajaccio diocèse and surrounding parishes. Its vocation is to welcome people, families or groups who desire:

  • A simple resort to rest and retire in a calm natural place.
  • A starting point for mountain excursions.
  • To organize a family reunion (holy communion, wedding, anniversary).
  • To organize professional seminars and meetings.
  • To organize courses based on music, painting, nature , health, well-being, or spirituality (yoga, etc.).
La Maison welcomes associations or communities desiring to organize a retreat away from the pressures and demands of the workplace.
