In a beautiful natural setting, Bonifacio is an ancient fortress town on the southern tip of the French island of Corsica. The medieval clifftop citadel provides stunning views to the turquoise waters of the marina which at the landward end has a fjord like feel. Protected by vast smooth walls, the town itself stretches along a narrow, top-heavy promontory, undercut by creamy-white limestone cliffs hollowed out by centuries of ceaseless waves. L’Escalier du Roi d’Aragon is 187 ancient steps carved into the cliff face.
Two of our featured hotels are little out of the town with uncompromising views of the citadel the other off the beaten track 20 minutes from town and claiming the nickname ‘hotel at the end of the world’
