When we arrived at the hotel Genovese in Bonifacio it immediately felt right. A nice genuine warm welcome and the beautiful setting in the heart of the historical old town of the hotel were a perfect start.
We were shown our room, number 1 –even I can remember that one – enjoyed the calm clean interior and as always went straight to the window to see the view. We looked at each other with happy eyes…can we live here please? Overlooking the natural harbour with a terrace big enough to organize a party and surrounded by beautiful nature. What else can you wish for?
It was the start of the tourist season for the Bonifaciens so most of the time we had the hotel all to ourselves. The swimming pool area is amazing. Surrounded by the citadel walls of the old town it is a haven of zen and peace. While we were having breakfast near the pool we had the occasional visit of a sunbathing salamander, a curious cat and nosy, hungry seagulls. Through the shooting holes in the bay window we had a great view on the bay below. Perfect viewpoint for Mike to photograph the ferry to and from Sardegna. I guess if I would not have been there he would just have camped there during our entire stay.
