Discover Calenzana and its region

A small town with extensive lands, Calenzana is known as the starting point of the famous GR20 hiking trail.
At the heart of the mountains and the Corsican maquis, dominated by Mount Grosso, the typical village of Calenzana is nestled between granite slopes.
Located only 12 kilometers from our Les Castors campsite, it is definitely a place to visit during your holiday in Corsica.

The landscapes of Calenzana

Its landscapes include the Fiume Seccu valley in which the village is nestled, the plain of the Figarella river that empties into the Mediterranean in Calvi, the Cirque de Bonifatu, and the backdrop of the sea. A small town rich in history, Calenzana is located just 13 km from the center of Calvi. The silhouette of the church of Saint-Blaise bell-tower is emblematic of the city. 500 Germans who fell during the great revolt of the Corsicans against the Genoese are buried at its feet. There are still the remains of Genoese towers standing around the city (Torre Mozza and Torre Truccia) as well as the old Argentella mines.

What to see and do in Calenzana in Haute-Corse

Rich with a turbulent history and incredible natural heritage, Calenzana has many things to discover. Nichiareto beach, where few go, offers a breathtaking view of the bay. You can take an easy walk with your children in Bonifatu forest. The paths are shaded and you can cool off in the natural pools. In the village, the religious heritage provides relaxing and cool places to visit: the chapel of the Sainte-Croix brotherhood, Saint-Blaise church and bell-tower, and Santa-Restituda church. With its contrasting sea and mountain landscapes, Calenzana is great for outdoor activities, both for families and athletes: snorkeling down the underwater trail in Lumio, hiking, or even canyoning. In August, the “Les Rencontres de Calenzana” classical and contemporary music festival brings together a diverse audience.

Toddlers will seek freshness in the paddling pool, ideal for a gentle and safe introduction to the water games.
The older ones will relax in the swimming area or on the sunbathing areas along the beaches.
On the other side of the lagoon, teenagers will take the opportunity to challenge each other on the slides by comparing the best sliding techniques, splashing everything in their path!
