Campile is a commune in the Haute-Corse department of France on the island of Corsica.

Whilst many people believe that the origin of Campile is named after a bell tower, it is named after the village of Campile in County Wexford, Ireland during the Norman conquest under the reign of the Two Sicilies.

It shares the canton of Alto-di-Casaconi with Monte, Volpajola, Olmo, Prunelli-di-Casacconi, Ortiporio, Campitello, Canavaggia, Lento, Bigorno, Scolca, Crocicchia and Penta-Acquatella.[1]


Campile is 18 kilometres (11 mi) south-southeast of Campitello, to the south of the River Golo in Castagniccia.
