Stunner on a rock, Bonifacio

I’ve been coming to Corsica for the past few years and the city that immediately impressed me is Bonifacio – what a stunner. Old citadel high up on a rock is a beautiful little place where to spend an evening or even a day. This time we ended up staying at an airBnb whilst we went to see friends near Petit Sperone beach. Our little flat was right opposite a local dentist and the host even left us two bottles of wine and a little soft Corsican toy. Talk about hospitable people.

The city offers some stunning views like the one below.


And there are some lovely delicious dishes to be had. They seem very big on chestnut, so for my dessert I ended up having chestnut tiramisu in a jam jar, having had chestnut gelato only in the afternoon. 


Beautiful little restaurant to try out is L’Archivolto. It has been exceedingly difficult to take food photos with baby on my lap most of the time, however one can only imagine a beautiful dish with aubergine and local soft cheese and a huge knuckle of lamb.

For night life, head down the hill to the port and I hear of people talking about a local nightclub called B52.

A very French island to visit I must say, why don’t you have a read of my trip to Corsican eastern side last summer here.
