We just spent 9 nights at Sylvie and Jorge's Villa Madra and are happy to recommend them highly. There are 3 villas with identical layout but with an individual & very nice design - the villas were built by Jorge and designed by Sylvie. The villas have everything you need to be self catered - including a BBQ and pizza oven - in fact we did not have dinner out once during our stay there. They also provide beach essentials (towels, sun umbrella etc). Location is great just outside of Bonifacio (need a car to get into town where access and parking can be an issue in peak season - but you need a car to get around anyways) yet totally peaceful / quiet. No sea view despite what a previous reviewer mentioned, the beautiful shared swimming pool looks out to serene small hills to the north of Bonifacio. Our villa (villa Simon) had the best location since looking out to the maquis and more private than the 2 other villas that look out at the other villa's back. Sylvie and Jorge were great hosts and went out of their way to be helpful. Bonifacio itself is a remarkably beautiful small town that has become a tourist and jetset magnet - we were there the last week of June and crowds were starting to build up - you sometimes have to time your morning departure or be flexible with your plans to avoid traffic jams - might not be as enjoyable in the middle of summer. The landscapes and beaches in the area are amazingly beautiful and diverse. Highly recommend both Villa Madra and the Bonifacio area - but avoid peak season if you can.
Excelent accomodation and great hospitality.
Close to the village center (5 mins driving), and at same time with privacy and nice view to the coast.
