“One notch on the belt later.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Wow. Sometimes you forget what a great hotel experience is until...
Yes, the restaurant is amazing. Great service, delicious food, top notch.
However, we didn't eat there every day. What we enjoyed was returning early afternoon from a morning on one of the perfect beaches, or a leisurely lunch in town and opening a bottle of white, sitting in the garden or by the pool and just relaxing in their magic garden. Their service really stood out for us, and they are certainly worth the little bit extra you may have to pay for it.

We stayed here in the first week of August 2012 for our honeymoon and we had an amazing time.

We stayed in one of the small lodges, I think they call them lodge de charm, and it was excellent, very clean and constantly being cleaned with beds turned down and new towels at least twice a day. The room was big, long and narrow, with a bathroom at the end and we loved the quirky rough, curved plaster finish and exposed stone and drift wood features.

The service was very good, always lots of people buzzing around and saying bonjour. The concierge was really helpful advising us on the best beaches and restaurants to go to during our stay. All the staff spoke good (better than my 1996 GCSE French!) English and were happy to help how ever they could.

We opted to stay on a room only basis but had a breakfast delivered to the room one day and ate in the restaurant on 2 nights. The food is amazing, Michelin standard (in my punter/non food critic opinion) but pricey as you would expect for the standard. We paid 160 Euros for our first meal and 220 Euros on the second occasion, which, don't get me wrong is a lot of money, but it was a great experience. The food was 70 Euros each for 3 courses on both occasions, the rest was drinks.

The hotel is situated on the the main Bonifacio road but we didn't hear any road noise whilst out by the excellent pool. It is 2-3km's out of Bonifacio which is a bit too far to walk in 32 degrees. The line of stationary traffic queuing to get into Bonifacio in peak season can stretch to the hotel entrance and parking in Bonifacio can be a bit of a nightmare as well so I'd get in early if you want to park. If you get the shuttle bus into town for the evening then I'd also advise to book a taxi back to the hotel well in advance if you're planning on staying out late as we ended up walking back to the hotel on one occasion. It was ok though as the temperature had dropped and we yomped it up the hill in 30 minutes.

We didn't realise before we went just how expensive Bonifacio is, it appears to be on the rich boy yachting circuit and the harbour, when we were there, was full of huge yachts. The pricing especially in the harbour reflects this cliental, it's cheaper and generally less flashy in the old town. We preferred it up there. We took the train (little car with big engine pulling carriages up the road) up to the old town for 5 Euros and ate relatively cheaply.

Overall, great for a special treat, depending on how big your budget is.

We chose to stay here partly because there did not seem a decent hotel room availbale at Bonifacio town centre at the time of our visit but mostly because this place housed a good restaurant.
However, on arriving, the lady at the reception told us the restaurant was closed and the chef was on holiday. When I asked her for any ideas for our dinner that night, she just told us we could go to Bonifacio or Porto Vecchio if we had a car, showing no sympathy whatsoever.
Once back in home, I doublechecked if they had mentioned about the restaurant's annual closure in the booking confirmation or on their website but there was none.
Our duplex room was pretty but it was not very convenient going up and down the little stairs.

A Cheda is a fantastic place to stay in Bonifacio, Corsica.
The gardens, the care with nature, the food, and most specially the people always ready to make you feel good is a great combination. We had last minute problems with our transfer to Ajaccio airport and the A Cheda management promptly offered to take us in their own vehicle and late resolve with the travel agency.

We stumbled on this LOVELY hotel very close to Bonifacio in the south of the island. Acheda Hotel De Charme comprises a converted farm and buildings. The rooms/suites were rustic but very well equipped indeed and a true 4 star standard. The staff are totally charming, the setting gorgeous and the restaurant should be Michelin starred (if it's not already, I didn't check). We did a half-board package with dinner and lucked into one of the best meals I've had in quite some time. Not hip and trendy obviously and if you're expecting a W you'll be horribly disappointed (as apparently some Tripadvisor reviewers were!!) but taken in context, absolutely lovely.
I'm really not quite sure what the negative reviewers on this site though they were getting. If you want somewhere quaint, charming, authentic with great food, you won't be disappointed by the Acheda. Check out the photos on Expedia etc, they're very genuine and a good representation.

Room Tip: The smallest rooms look like they may be ummmm.....cosy. The upgrade is well worthwhile.

Such a lovely hotel but i do agree with the previous comment only if you have a car - which i think you would be crazy to go to Corsica without a car there are so many places to visit which you can only really drive to.

We stayed in a loft style apartment and it was really spacious clean and staff was friendly the only issue was the renovations in the apartment next door (which we were not warned about) so we woke up to drilling every morning otherwise it would have been perfect.

Very helpful staff, good location (if you have a car), clean and specious rooms. Breakfast and dinner on a lovely terasse! Dinner a bit overpriced. You can eat much better in Bonifacio for the same price range.
