BONIFACIO - 南科西嘉
We can honestly say that Damien's play was one of the most special we have ever stayed at. Even though there we only two of us, I made a point of napping in each of Damien's beds as each was like its own special nest. The location of this house is perfect. Right in the middle of town so really easy to walk a few doors down so several markets, restaurants etc. And his place is very quiet with absolutely breathtaking views of the ocean literally right below his balcony. We would take chairs onto the balcony each morning for breakfast and each afternoon for wine. Lastly, Damien is a total gentleman and was a tremendous host. He was full of ideas for special things to do in and around Bonifacio. Beaches, restaurants, hikes, etc. It was a perfect stay for us.
Quite expensive given the facilities available - biggest downers for us were kitchen - a bit shambolic & dirty pots & pans with insects - needed rewashing, lots of old out-of-date discarded groceries that should have been thrown away, not very good shower & effectively unusable very small balcony accessible by ducking through windows but with no shade / need to squat on cushions; and general feeling that the apartment was in need of a decorative refresh and some maintenance - loose electrical fittings, leaking tap, shower not great, lavatory flush sticking, 'mirror window' in the bathroom that was actually see through so no privacy. Lots of little things - no individual thing a deal breaker but all contributed to the overall effect. Don't want to misrepresent this - Damien was very pleasant and helpful and the apartment is in a good location; but we all just felt it was a little expensive for what it was & to feel like we had good value the kitchen should have been cleaner and better organised and the whole apartment spruced up. And a clearer description that the balcony was tiny and accessible through window with no shade.
Le plan de tout l'appartemnt est présenté sur l'annonce de Airbnb, y compris le balcon. Il faut bien regarder l'annonce entièrement avant de faire une réservation. Le duplex, n'est pas une chambre d'hôtel froide et dépersonnalisée, mais c'est une maison particulière avec divers objets d'art et de traditions artisanales populaires. Il n'y a pas d'autre appartement de 4 chambres de cette sorte, sans vis à vis donnant sur la mer au rez de chaussée à Bonifacio, le prix est largement en dessous des prix du marché
This is such a quirky , amazing apartment with the most beautiful views from both floors. It worked very well for us as 2 couples. Damien was charming and extremely helpful and we loved every moment of our 5 nights in Bonifacio. The walks in all directions are some of the most beautiful we have ever taken.
Great location in Centre of Bonifacio and spectacular views. Apartment has a great layout, comfortable and very spacious. We felt right at home! Damien was a great help to us and his place was a perfect base. would strongly recommend the property. Although we rented in peak summer we could always get a parking once we secured a parking permit
