Chez Tao, an irresistible and captivating piano bar

Perched on the heights of the citadel, Chez Tao is an iconic and much sought-after address for Calvaises nights.

In 1928, Tao Kerefoff, exiled along with Prince Felix Yusupov, Rasputin's famous assassin, arrived in northern Corsica. Captivated by the singular beauty of the small town of Calvi and desperately in love with Jeannette Maestracci, he decided to set-up here and so in 1935 created this, Corsica's first nightclub.

In this landmark 17th-century house, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren have maintained this magical, historical place, all the while respecting their ancestor's motto: 'Be happy today for tomorrow will be too late.'

Every summer, personalities, regulars, and tourists flock to party, dance, and sing.

During your trip to Calvi, you won't be able to resist the unique atmosphere that emanates from this address, which will also charm you with its view of the bay.
