The region of the Centre Corse

Are you dreaming of a holiday in Corsica? How about literally staying in the Center of Corsica, in Center-Corse?
Gîtes, guest rooms, campsites, at Gîtes de France Corsica we offer many vacation rentals for a wonderful stay in Center-Corsica, near Corte!

The Centre Corse is the geographical heart of the island, a vast region filled with lakes and several circuses produced by the advance of the glaciers in the last ice-age.
As the climate warmed, the glaciers melted and left huge pointed pinnacles of rock and some of Corsica's highest peaks (Rotondo, Cinto, Monte d'Oro).

This central region, home to the Corsican Natural and Regional Park features the most fascinating long distance footpaths.
These take you through the Laricio pine forests, oak and chestnut groves, past trout fishing streams and rushing white water courses where kayaking is a delight.
Among the many rivers, the most notable are the Golo and Tavignano. Corte in the XIXth century was the historical capital of Corsica.

Castagniccia is the region extending from Fium'altu to Alesani, a medium altitude mountain range dominated by the 1,766 metre high San Petrone peak. Castagniccia, the region of the castagna or eating chestnut, is central both to the island and its history.
As such, it is also known as the Valley of the Lords. Chestnut cultivation is the firmly surviving tradition of the past, and covers across thousands of acres. This region is composed by extraordinarily charming small villages, very typical such as Croce.

The region is nicknamed and known as Arbre à Pain de la Corse due to its localization and characteristics : the mountain range of schist rocks seperates Costa Serena from the Corte region.
It is bordered to the North and West by the Golo river, to the South by Bravone, and to the East by the sea.
