Bonifacio, Corsica, France
With an elegant yet comfortably casual ambiance, the Hotel Genovese has the most amazing location in Bonifacio, right on top of the cliffs in the heart of the citadel in the haute village
, the medieval part of town, and overlooking the impossibly picturesque yacht harbor. Though the hotel is modern with a minimalist décor, the sense of history is ever-present, evidenced by the ancient stone walls of the fortress surrounding the garden terrace and sun-drenched swimming pool. Excellent breakfasts are served on an inviting patio and the staff is easygoing yet professional.
