Apartment Rentals in Bonifacio
Bonifacio is on the southern edge of Corsica, not far from Sardinia. It is thus these joint cultures that give Bonifacio its unique feel, partway between France, Corsica and Italy. Apartment rentals in Bonifacio will help you get to know this elegant town and its surroundings.
As in many Corsican towns, the harbor of Bonifacio is its beating heart. It's here that you should begin your exploration. You'll find that Bonifacio is actually home to three separate ports – the fishing port, the pleasure port and the departure port – and all three deserve their own special look. The pleasure port is not only home to a great variety of yachts, but it's also where you'll find bars and restaurants with views of the cliffs surrounding the island. The departure port is where you can organize a boat trip, if you like, to get to know the rest of Corsica or even for a daylong jaunt to Sardinia! If you're planning to spend most of your time traveling or exploring the harbor, consider a guesthouse or house rental by the port when selecting your holiday accommodations. While Bonifacio is not large, it does attract a good number of people, particularly in the summer, and you'll be grateful to be close to your destination from the very beginning of your day!
Like many Corsican towns, Bonifacio is home to an impressive citadel. You'll have to climb to the top to take in the extraordinary views, but it's definitely worth the effort! You can also explore the medieval Old Town, the oldest in Corsica, which is home to most of Bonifacio's important monuments, like the 13th century Saint Dominique Church and the 12th century Sainte Marie Majeure Church. Don't neglect the Staircase of the King of Aragon, a staircase cut directly into the cliffs that you won't want to miss. Also be sure to take the time to visit prehistoric sites at Filitosa or Casteddu de Cucuruzzu. You'll discover that the history of Bonifacio extends so far into the past, it pre-dates modern civilization! Vacation homes in Bonifacio within the old center may prove expensive, but you'll likely be able to find cheap apartments as well, especially if you travel in the off-season, when Bonifacio gets a bit quieter.
