The Space

From January 5th to March 31st, pay 2 nights, get 3. Pay 5 nights get 7.

2nd room in my apartment. The description can be read on my other listing called Corsica. The exact adress location is the one on Corsica.....

2 rooms, if this one is not available, you have the other one Corsica .

Launch of the whole week end in English in winter 2014
If you want to learn French, Italian or Corsican I can provide
Homestays at teacher’s & Immersion Programs in Corsica

In case, I'm fully booked you can go to my friend's and I'm the President of Corsica Ospitalita so I can always find an accomodation even in last minute.

5' from Bastia port and 20' from Bastia Poretta Airport. (Transfer possible)
Walking distance from the Citadel and the old Port.
5' from the train station and bus stop just down the street....

You can use the kitchen and the terrace to have dinner at home except in high season (Smoking allowed on the terrace)

The right place to visit Bastia, Cap Corse, St Florent and Calvi. But you can also go to Bonifacio or Porto (A long drive).....

Corsica without a car is not easy, and if you need to rent a car, I can call a friend of mine who can also find automatic cars but it's less expensive if you book in advance. We can also find a solution if you want someone to drive.....

Cultural activities:
The best event ever.... Italian film festival : 24th edition from Feb 4th to 11th 2012
Spanish movies in September
Chess tournament in October
Arte e Mare mediterranean movies in November
British and american movies in April
Music "Les nuits de la guitare" in Patrimonio in July
If you speak English, you can come to my English Club in Corsica. We speak English but we have Corsican food and wines.....That's the best way to meet real people from the place....

Review from Lydia NYC (future host on airbnb)
An int'l pilot in her previous life & a proud Corsican, you'd never find a more passionate host in assuring that her guests get the fullest experience. Centrally located in Bastia, her apt is v. comfy, superclean & has a beautiful view + has wifi,. She's the only host who goes out of her way for guests: she picks up & drops off guests from & to the port or airport.She'll find you a room if she's full; she even drove us around other towns sightseeing after work or between her lessons or on a day off & gives history & interesting stories.She enjoys sitting down w/you @ BF& chat to get to know you better. She's a great source of eats,best family owned ice cream parlor, all activities w/in the island & so forth. She'd even help you find another b&b in other towns, rent boats,cars, camping sites,& everything you could think of.She's well connected. knows everyone& vice versa She runs an English social club, the only one I've ever heard of in France, where she takes you out w/ her adult students( learning English) to a wonderful typical Corsican meal w/great local wines & we found this to be a terrific way of meeting locals-they were all so,so jovial that time flew & we did not want the evening to end.She boasts about her luck in getting only the best guests but it's only true because you end up loving her the minute you meet her. People return just to be w/her, I'm one of them.

Guest Access

Guest can use the kitchen and the balcony until 10:00 PM but on request only during high season.

Interaction with Guests

If you're looking for English or French homestay I'll be the one to spend time with you and I also provide lessons. I will organize my English Club and invite you if you speak English but in very high season it's impossible as I don't have enough time.

The Neighborhood

Just 10' walking from Place St Nicolas with a beautiful view.

  • Nous avons séjourné une nuit chez Marie Dominique à Bastia. L'appartement est très bien situé, il est très facile de se rendre dans le centre et la vieille ville à pieds en passant par un petit parc. La vue depuis la terrasse et la chambre est très agréable. Marie Dominique est une hôtesse accueillante et passionnée par son île. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à séjourner et à converser avec elle. Nous la remercions pour sa générosité et son sens de l'hospitalité. Adresse que nous manquerons pas de recommander !

  • Really clean, comfortable apartment, 10 minutes slight downhill walk to Bastia centre. Breakfast is taken on the balcony with a wonderful view over the town. Marie-Do is the consummate host(ess) who goes out of her way to ensure you have a great stay. She kindly met us when we arrived in Bastia and also took us back to the ferry. She is passionate about Corsica and it shows! She cooked a superb Corsican meal for us and invited some of her students and friends - a really wonderful evening. If you are considering staying in Bastia, we would highly recommend staying here.

  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Bastia chez Marie-Dominique même si très bref.
    L'appartement est très bien situé proche de la ville, situé sur les hauteurs de Bastia avec vue sur la vieille ville et le port de Bastia, très belle vue de son balcon, bien aménagé et fonctionnel.
    Elle nous a bien accueilli et même chercher où la navette de l'aéroport nous a déposé. Et elle est très disponible pour nous donner des conseils de visites, ...
    Et petit déjeuner parfait !!!

  • L'appartement de Marie-Dominique est très bien situé, à 10 minutes à pied du centre ville. La chambre est bien équipé et très propre. Marie-Dominique est une hôtesse vraiment agréable et engagé, qui est même venu nous chercher à la gare en arrivant. Elle même d'origine corse, elle connaît très bien la Corse et nous a donné des conseils très utiles. Merci beaucoup! A recommander sans exception.

    Marie-Dominiques Wohnung ist sehr gut gelegen, unweit des Stadtzentrums (10 min zu Fuß). Das Zimmer ist gut ausgestattet und wirklich sehr sauber. Marie-Dominique ist eine sehr angenehme und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin (sie hat uns sogar mit dem Auto vom Bahnhof abgeholt). Auf Korsika geboren, kennt sie sich sehr gut auf der ganzen Insel aus – nicht nur in Bastia und Umgebung. Wir sind sehr dankbar für ihre hilfreichen Tipps und können die Unterkunft ohne Einschränkung weiterempfehlen.
