We stayed here for a week in September 2012 at the beginning of our holiday in France and Italy. We arrived in Figari after a long flight from Australia. We had a taxi take us to our accomodation and then picked up a hire car the next day.
The residence is halfway between Porto-Vecchio and Bonafacio. Both these towns are worth the visit. Bonafacio is a ancient village with the hauteville perched high above the sea. Our boys loved exploring the cobbled stone streets and we drove in there for dinner a couple of times. The cuisine is delicious and is worth trying some of the towns local specialties.
Residence Blue Marine is a very short walk to the lovely beach of Santa Giullia. There are excellent facilities for a wide range of water sports. Club Nautique Santa Guilia offers catamaran, kayak, surfboard and funboard hire, and sailing and windsurfing lessons . Our boys learnt windsurfing and the instructors were excellent and spoke English.
There are a couple places to eat on the beach for lunch and dinner. Having a car is really necessary so you can go into town .
Our accomodation was a three bedroom town house overlooking the garden. There is a great swimming pool and plenty of space for the children to play. There is a small store where you can buy fresh croissants and baguettes each day .
There were still plenty of people around at the beginning of September however things were winding down as it was nearing the end of the season.
The girls in the office were very helpful , particularly Heine who spoke English.
A spectacular part of the world that we will be back to visit.
