Summer in the Castagniccia Mare e Monti region

Castagniccia - Mare e Monti, a green patchwork

Great ideas for a summer break in Castagniccia Mare e Monti.

Day 1: welcome to your holidays

Arrive in Corsica.

Visit and discover the Costa Verde, its beaches, waterfalls, coastal route…Check in to your accommodation, swim. Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 2 : the cool attitude

After breakfast, rendezvous at Pozzio Mezzana market to discover the products of our region. You can have lunch at the seaside resort of Moriani-Plage. In the afternoon you can treat yourself to a spot of well deserved “farniente” – what the locals call doing nothing! After all, you are on holiday.

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 3: the serious business begins!

Set out for a mountain bike ride and explore our green spaces. Whatever you level, you are sure to find something that suits you. After a short, restorative siesta, head for the fair of flavours as a reward: artisans and producers will share all their savoir-faire with you through authentic flavours and aromas. Sway to the sounds of the Polyphonies at an exceptional concert. Finally, spoil yourself with a traditional menu from our region.

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 4: total immersion!

Take advantage of a free morning to rest and recuperate, wander around or treat yourself to a pleasant swim. After lunch, set off to meet an AOC olive oil producer in order to better understand how this fruit is transformed into oil. On your return, make the most of your time at the marina in order to enjoy a fine ice cream or a glass of fresh fruit juice in a pleasant and peaceful setting.

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 5: immerse yourself deeper still!

After breakfast, head for Castagniccia to immerse yourself totally into our culture, traditions and roots! Start your trail with a stroll in the village of Cervione, with its narrow streets, its cathedral and, in particular, its museum of art and popular traditions based on the traditional life of our ancestors. Stop at Carcheto Brustico for a refreshing pause at the Cascade de la Struccia (15 min walk). Set off once more to Piedicroce and visit the convent at Orezza, a place loaded with history. Finally, sample the very singular mineral water that springs from the Eaux d’Orezza site.

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 6 : relaxation and wellbeing

After breakfast, set out to visit a workshop that produces natural Corsican cosmetics. In the afternoon, everyone heads for the beach! Enjoy the water sports centre: inflatables rides, windsurfing, catamarans, kayaking…

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 7: ready, steady, go!

Rise at dawn to climb Mont San Petrone, the highest point in the region. This walk, which is quite easy, will provide plenty of fresh air as you hike through the undergrowth. Upon arrival at the summit, which sits 1767m up, you will be dumbfounded by the 360° panoramic view that greets you, with a nice orientation table on hand to inform you. Organise a picnic for the journey back down, in the shade of centuries old trees that surround you. In the afternoon, upon your return, give in to the restorative pleasures of a pleasant dip in the Mediterranean Sea.

Dinner at leisure and overnight in San Nicolao.

Day 8: a little tour and you’re off (yes, already...)

After breakfast you will head to Parc Galéa, which offers a sign-posted and interactive trail that helps you understand Corsica through a variety of different interactive worlds. Then take the La Casinca touristic route and stroll around the typical villages that provide amazing views of the Bastia region. You can also visit Penta di Casinca, the only village in Corsica that is listed in its entirety.

Safe journey home and we will see you again soon!
