Flora and fauna

A stunning display of colour.

Corsica is a paradise for flora and fauna, with numerous animal and plant species endemic to the island offering a stunning display of colour.

Keen walkers can experience the evocative scents of Corsica’s famous maquis, the unique “pozzine” (water holes), and the island’s stunning coastline as they stroll through landscapes lined with Corsican pines or myrtle trees. Immersing yourself in the sights, scents and sounds of these landscapes will give you a true sense of Corsica.

Just outside Île-Rousse, explore the delightful Parc de Saleccia, a 7ha botanical reserve. Also worth a visit are the Jardins Traditionnels du Cap Corse, with fine examples of vegetable gardens, orchards and tree plantations. Other fascinating sights include farms awarded the “Bienvenue à la Ferme” label, which are great places to visit, relax and be inspired. The Corsican mouflon, an animal straight out of Greek mythology, can still be seen in the unspoilt Aitone, Asco and Bavella forests. Meanwhile, Corsica’s botanical footpaths will take you in search of sweet chestnut trees, holm oaks and cistus bushes. Admire the beautiful everlasting flower, one of Napoleon’s favourites, as well as the arbutus tree, which lends its delicate aromas to our unpasteurised cheeses and our famous Brucciu cheese.

And if you look up, you may well catch a glimpse of the magnificent bearded vulture or the golden eagle which soar above the trees, dominating the landscape and keeping a sharp eye out for prey.
