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 very 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).....I can arrange accomodation almost everywhere in Corsica.

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 cheaper 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
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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Accueil parfait. Elle vous indiquera aussi de très bons conseils pour ne pas rater les merveilles de l'île de beauté.
    Vous pourrez prendre le petit déjeuné sur la terrasse avec vue sur la mer.
    je recommande.

  • Marie-Dominique est très agréable, disponible et à l'écoute. La chambre et l'appartement sont très confortable.
    Je reviendrais!

  • My friend and I stayed with Marie-Do. She was an excellent host! When we had some ferry delays she kept in touch and graciously picked us up from the ferry port when we got in. We participated in her English club, which made for a fantastic evening spent talking and enjoying some fine treats. The apartment was great, clean and modern. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Bastia

  • I told Marie she is not French! Bcos she is simply a natural and great host and genuine with her services to her guests. She goes thru the effort to make sure I get to the train every morning for my day return trip.

    She is a good dietician and loves good food. She is eager to share and educate her guest on traditional Corsican food.

    I had a fabulous time staying with her although it was only 3 nights. I wld recommend her great hospitality to anyone planning a trip to Corisca.

    The advantage I hv over most of her other guest is that she speaks perfect English. She is professionally an English teacher and was a pilot for several years. Her career and travel experiences make her an interesting host.

  • Marie Dominique's apartment is bright and warm and welcoming - great views and easy stroll to centre ville - Marie actually met me at the 6am ferry which was exceptional service - she was so very welcoming and was quick to offer assistance with directions and onward bookings - a great cook - a tough French teacher but if you survive the "immersion" you will be fluent in a few days - impressionnant Marie - merci beaucoup :)

  • Marie-D. ist eine sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Wir haben uns am Tourist office getroffen, da mein Navi Ihr Zuhause nicht fand ;-) und sind gemeinsam zu ihr gefahren.
    Ihren Parkplatz vor dem Haus durfte ich in der Zeit nutzen, was ich sehr zu schätzen wusste.
    Von ihrer Loggia, auf der ich bei sonnigem Wetter gefrühstückt habe, hat man einen schönen Blick Richtung Stadt.
    Das Zentrum kann man sehr gut zu Fuß erreichen und bekommt von Ihr noch einen Stadtplan dazu.
    Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt und kann es nur empfehlen !

    October 2013
  • Excellent séjour chez Marie-Dominique ! L'appartement est très calme, équipé d'un joli mobilier design, et idéalement situé (10 mn a pied du centre-ville). Merci Marie-Dominique de ton accueil, et j'espère à bientôt !

    September 2013
  • Très bon accueil de Marie Dominique qui se rend disponible pour venir nous chercher si besoin, nous donner des infos sur la ville et les endroits à voir, nous parler de la corse...
    Petit déjeuner avec vue surplombant Bastia et son port.
    Chambre confortable.
    Je recommande.

    September 2013
  • Sehr gut! Marie-Dominique hat uns sogar bei früher Abreise vor 06:00 Uhr ein leckeres Frühstück vorbereitet. Jederzeit gerne wieder. Vielen Dank!

    September 2013
  • Marie is a very nice host! She picked us up at the bus station and bought campinggaz for us, which we couldn't organize due to our late arrival. He apartment is very neet and clean. The view from the balcony is gorgeous. It's also very centrally located in Bastia. Thanks again for the nice stay!
