Long favoured by the discerning British traveller, la Balagne is the perfect introduction to Corsica.
Dotted along the coast between the towns of Calvi and L’Ile Rousse lie the villages, sandy beaches and secluded coves that make this area so appealing. Backed by high mountains that remain snow capped until early summer, the landscape demonstrates that Corsica is a mountain in the sea. Honey hued villages with real Corsican character cling to the mountains.
La Balagne is the area in the northwest of Corsica with the Desert des Agriates to the northeast.

Calvi is well worth a visit, even if only to walk the ramparts of its 15th century Genoese citadel.
