Maison Bonaparte


Maison Bonaparte is the ancestral home of the Bonaparte family. It is located on the Rue Saint-Charles in Ajaccio on the French island of Corsica. The house was almost continuously owned by members of the family from 1682 to 1923. The first Bonaparte to live at this understated four-storey house was Napoleon’s great-great grandfather in the late-17th century and the building remained in the family’s hands until 1923. Napoleon only spent his earliest years here, so there’s much to learn about the rest of the imperial family and their relationship with Ajaccio.
