30 mins from town but manageable. Great hotel!
Posted Aug 4, 2016
I was initially put off by reports that a car is essential due to the hotel being 2-3km from the town but went ahead anyway. The hotel offers a mini bus service from 10-6pm which took us into town and we walked back on 6 occasions. It takes 30 mins and is uphill but we managed it! After the roundabout there is no lighting so a little precarious but reception provided us a torch which helped.
It's 30 mins to the port btw, the Haute Ville which to us is where the best restaurants and bars are is a further 10 min up a very steep incline. But you get used to it!
The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. Not that strong in English but they try hard. Breakfast excellent although we never tried he gourmet restaurant as it's very pricey.
It really is a great hotel so we'd highly recommend it.
We hired a car for the last 3 days and drive out to Porto Vechio and other locations. This really made the holiday so don't overlook the car and it's probably cheaper to book n advance. There's only a single car hire facility, Europcar, in Bonifacio. Parking per evening is €7-10.
