The Costa Verde: authentic, lush and full of character
Our region and its 14 villages is the best in Corsica when it comes to the distance between the sea and the mountains. Set off to discover the treasures of our region, find out about the know-how of Corsica's craftsmen and producers and try the local specialities.
What will you be taking home from Corsica?: canistrelli, a decorative knife, some pottery, some organic produce, essential oils, cosmetics, designer jewellery, specialities made from Cervione hazelnuts, some fine Corsican wine, sheep cheese and all sorts of other things!
You'll be spellbound by the magic of the polyphonic singing and stirred by our chapels, forests, botanical walks, our winding little roads and our hamlets clinging to the mountains.
From village to village, travel through its regions
