Description

The Biguglia pond nature reserve is the largest wetland in Corsica. The pond, which covers an area of 1450 ha, extends over 11 km and is 2.5 km wide.
Its maximum depth is 2m. It is both soft and salty, supplied with fresh water on the west bank by the Golo River and salt water to the northeast by the Grau River, a narrow gully that is its only communication with the sea. The Lido de la Marana, a narrow strip of land no more than 1 km wide, separates the pond from the sea. A rare landscape in Corsica, the exceptional character of this site goes well beyond its landscape beauty because it is its ecological and biological interest that gives it a remarkable aspect.

At the foot of the Pigno massif, Bastia occupies a small bay on the northeast coast of Corsica and marks the border between the Biguglia plains and the first escarpments of Cape Corsica.
It inherited its name from the fortress "A Bastia" that Genoa built at the end of the 14th century to facilitate their trade in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Prefecture of the department of Haute Corse with 43 000 inhabitants, Bastia is a real island economic capital and one of the most beautiful cities on the island.

Description

Cape Corsica, the island in the island like to say some people. This region is especially appreciated for its sides with holes in wild coves. A mountain in the sea barely 15 km wide and with steep slopes that intimidate the eye so spectacular are they. With its imposing relief, its rugged coastline, its villages majestically perched on rocky peaks and an exceptionally mild climate, Cape Town is a must see.

Description

In the heart of a beautiful gulf to which he has given his name, St Florent is built on a slight height north of the mouth of the Aliso river. Very popular, often called "Saint-Tropez de la Corse", St Florent is a seaside resort whose success is easily measured by the size of the yachts moored in the marina. St Florent is the capital of Nebbio, a region that develops into an amphitheatre in the hinterland. Nebbio is a land of vineyards, olive groves, orchards and pastures. The landscapes, criss-crossed with dry-stone walls and dotted with sheepfolds, show that it was prosperous, earning its nickname of "conch of gold". This region has many welcoming small villages, set up as observatories on the heights surrounding the Aliso basin.

Description

Dominating one of the most beautiful gulfs in the Mediterranean, the soft and majestic Balagne valley would gladly inspire poets. Its hills covered with olive trees, decorated with lemon, orange and fig trees have long symbolized the one that was the "Garden of Corsica" and testified to the mild climate. Known for its two flagship cities: Calvi and Ile Rousse, Balagne is also a region of magnificent villages surrounded by orchards and vineyards that have joined forces to showcase their heritage and make their tradition known. Thus was born "the road of the craftsmen of Balagne": Tourist circuit through the most beautiful villages to discover ancestral trades: cutlers, beekeepers, olive growers, ceramists, etc....

Castagniccia is a region that has long remained impenetrable due to its mountain geography. An average altitude of 1000 meters, a sumptuous setting, Castagniccia is unique! It is characterized by its high hills with slopes covered with endless chestnut groves (from which it takes its name), while on the ridges, tightened on themselves, small villages seem to watch them.
