Just opposite nearby Sardinia in Italy, Bonifacio, the southernmost French city, on the island of Corsica, is a bit like the end of the world especially for those living in France. With its famous limestone cliffs, its marina and its history, Bonifacio is a land of centuries old legends. The great plague of 1526, the constant sieges, especially that of Dragut the Pirate and the dramatic sinking of the Sémillante in 1855 are but a few events that have shaped Bonifacio’s thousand year history.
Everything here is instilled with history and nature, the two elements often inextricably linked, like for example the celebrated stairway of the King of Aragon with its 189 steps carved directly out of the rock in just one night. The work was reportedly carried out by the Aragonian king’s troops in 1420 during the siege of Bonifacio. Another version of history however, claims that it was built by Franciscan monks over a longer period of time. It doesn’t really matter since Corsica is the land of both legend and beauty where fantasy and dreams play a major role!
Numerous excursions leave from Bonifacio enabling visitors to discover the wonders of southern Corsica and especially the Lavezzi Islands, the narrow creeks or calanques of Fazio and the cave of Sdragonato.
At the southern end of Corsica, also known as « the Isle of Beauty », between Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio, facing the sea, a three kilometer path takes us to a four star hotel overlooking the Gulf of Santa Manza. This dreamlike location is reason enough to come here and discover the intact nature around the bay, the beaches and the legendary dense Corsican thickets known as the maquis. The hotel’s pure and simple contemporary architecture is in perfect harmony with its surroundings demonstrating that man has no desire to compete with the magnificence of this Eden like venue. This is also the thinking behind the name chosen for this natural edifice of Mother Earth architecture: White cliffs, White caps!
Everything here is designed for pleasure, relaxation and fine dining. We discover a resort which is like a second home; a small islet of modern comfort where the latest technology is present simply, without ostentation. Everything has been created to provide guests with total immersion into a site that is unique in France. The 28 rooms and 14 suites are an extension of this gentle and natural setting in one of the wildest, unspoiled and most beautiful parts of Southern Corsica. Thanks to an attentive and caring staff, the guest can let himself go and re-energize himself.
U Capu Blancu cultivates the feeling of getting away, feeding the guests’ desire for exoticism. This is best exemplified by the refinement of its gastronomic restaurant, La Table de Gadjo El Hadji. The name of its chef assures visitors of a stunning culinary journey. Originally from Senegal, Gadjo El Hadji’s creations demonstrate his great affection for island cuisine, using numerous spices, and limes known as combava for his fish specialties which among others include grouper and lobster. Whatever one chooses from the menu, guests are assured of an unforgettable dining experience.
The chef’s talents can also be felt in the simpler dishes served at the hotel’s beachside restaurant. Taste takes precedence here. The fish are brought here every morning by the fishermen. We find ourselves face to face with the elements of a landscape shaped by the character of a truly unique land.
The spa provides guests with a superb moment of relaxation with massages from all over the world for the visitor who wants his or her mind and body to share the serenity of the setting. This same magic can be found in the infinity swimming pool with its incredible view.
The hotel proposes numerous land and sea activities for discovering the region and getting a more profound sense of this wild and sophisticated site.
