The Plateau of Coscione in Zonza
17 km from Zicavo and 30 km from Ajaccio, the Plateau of Coscione is a huge, Eurosiberian-like area with streams, “pozzines” (small water holes), pastures, prairies, moors and beech groves.
The Rivers of Corsica
A lot of natural pools provide the possibility to take a swim...
Natural water sources in Corsica
Corsica has more than enough water all year long. You can drink it directly at the source from numerous fountains that you will find here and there at regular intervals along the mountain trails...
The Sheepfolds of Corsica
Scattered in the mountains, the sheepfolds have mostly been abandoned due to the decline in transhumance, but they still shelter some shepherds and their animals between May and October.
Lake Melo and Lake Capitello
Located in Cortenais (south of Corté), these two lakes belong to the “must-visits” because of the breathtaking views. Overrun in summer. Don’t forget to equip yourself with proper gear
One of the sites not to be missed is Monte San Petrone (1767m) from where you will have a magnificent view over all of Castagniccia
In centre of Corsica, between Corte and Porto, it is situated on the route of GR20. The distinctive feature of Nino is that, unlike the other lakes at high altitudes (Melo et Capitello), it lies in a wide-open space. It is the glacier lake that is said to be the “most beautiful of Corsica”.
Located in Fium’Orbu, within regional Nature Reserve of Corsica, Bastiani Lake is situated face to Monte Rinosu ( 2352 ), that is one of the highest lakes of Corsica.
