Balagne: Corsican region with contrasting landscapes

The Balagne, the famous region of Upper Corsica, has the fortune of being among the most fertile areas of the island, thanks to both the diversity of its agriculture and to the influx of tourists who appreciate these magnificent landscapes.
You can’t visit Corsica without exploring La Balagne in Haute-Corse.

La Balagne: between sea and mountains

Indeed, the Balagne is distinguished by two special attractions: the presence of the Mediterranean Sea and of the mountain peaks that soar up to 2000 metres.
Thus the land is rich with marine sediment, allowing the cultivation of the olive trees, citrus fruits, and chestnuts which today still create the wealth of its inhabitants.

Many villages, some of them perched on unlikely summits, were created around these crops. Today, they give Balagne its unique identity, one of authenticity and a rich cultural, gastronomic and traditional heritage.

The particularity of the Balagne villages lies in the fact that, despite the many tourists who travel its steep roads and hilly paths, nothing has changed. No concrete constructions or large tourist traps, just the enhancement and preservation of popular and traditional culture.

An exceptional market

Thus, in Calvi, Île Rousse or Lumio one still easily finds the food products that are traditionally made by artisans who have transmitted their values from generation to generation while opening onto the exceptional market offered by the many tourists.

The initiatives of groups of artisans, such as that of Corsicada in Lumio, allow all these small traders to continue to make their living from their craft without losing the charm of its authenticity.
