Into the Balange - L'Ile Rousse, Pigna, Sant'Antonino and Calvi

Much of the north-west side of Corsica is called the Balange. Today we ventured over to the region, paying scant notice to its largest community and enjoying a memorable experience in one of its smallest. Details later in my Trip Report on Slow Travel.

Our unforgettable lunch setting at a small restaurant in Sant'Antonino, one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, is shown in the photo below.

It looks like a beautiful day - a little cloudy. Are there still a lot of chestnuts in the hills? I also loved the churches and actually the little mausoleums that lined the road.


Hi Marta,
Haven't noticed any chestnuts, but lots of churches, of course. However, we tend to stop at wineries rather than mausoleums. We've been very impressed by the quality of Corsican wines.
