Bonifacio is one of the most picturesque and cosmopolitan towns on the island of Corsica. If you are looking for a vacation where the weather is reliably pleasant, the settings stunning, and the white sandy beaches are fronted by azure-blue-coloured waters, then a holiday in Bonifacio is for you. It goes without saying that there are numerous accommodation options available, but the most unique place to stay would be at a holiday rental villa in Bonifacio. Fully furnished and equipped to make you feel at ease from the moment that you arrive, you can dictate the pace of your own holiday while surrounded by all the comforts of home.
As well as relaxing in the sun during your holiday in Bonifacio, you might like to take part in some activities, and there are certainly plenty to choose from. The sea offers the possibility to swim, sail, dive and snorkel. It is also possible to windsurf and kite surf, as well as go on a fishing trip. Inland, there are many hiking trails that can be followed through the mountains, where you will be able to discover quaint Corsican villages seemingly frozen in time.
Bonifacio itself is a fascinating place to spend time exploring, and a stroll through the centuries’ old historic centre couples well with a visit to the modern, bustling marina area. For trips farther afield, consider taking a boat excursion out to one of the protected nature reserve islands, or pay a visit to one of the mountain villages. If possible, rent a car for a day, and take a drive along the coast to discover beautiful beaches, and rugged, photogenic coastlines.
Being a Mediterranean island, you can expect to have wonderful weather during your holiday in Bonifacio almost year around. July and August are the hottest months, and whilst day time averages measure at 22 degrees Celsius, temperatures of 30 degrees are quite regularly experienced. Rainfall during this period is so little that you will be lucky to see any at all, with barely 10mm falling in the month of July. The winter, by contrast, is both cooler and wetter, although not by much! The day time averages measure at 10 degrees during November and December, whilst rainfall comes in at 70mm.
The main airport on the island of Corsica is the now renamed Napoleon Bonaparte Airport at Ajaccio (AJA). Whilst Air France connects the island with France, the only flights into here from the UK come courtesy of easyJet who fly out of London Gatwick (LGW). Once at the airport, you could take the choice of catching a taxi, bus or hiring a car in order to get to your self catering accommodation in Bonifacio. If you are considering hiring a car for the duration of your stay, it may be worthwhile checking first if your holiday rental villa in Bonifacio has parking available.
