Presentation Want to enjoy the fresh air?
From Ajaccio, take the territorial road 40 which will take you to Cauro. At the end of the village turn left towards Bastelica (D27). The maquis-like vegetation (holm oak...) quickly gives way to a forest of majestic pines. You enter the forest of Pineta where many walks are possible. Here you will find a little treasure for those who want to discover it: the Genoese bridge of Zipitoli. Located only 300 m from the road, it spans a small river in the middle of pines and ferns. The aim is to continue on to the village of Bastelica, one of the largest villages in the region. Historically, it is known as the birthplace of Sampiero Corso. Today Bastelica is much more famous for the production of local products such as cured meats. A stop in one of the many restaurants in the village will give you the opportunity to taste them. For the return journey, at the exit of Bastelica take the D3 which will lead you to the Prunelli gorges where the road passes steeply over the Prunelli river. The road will then lead you to the village of Tolla and its lake below. On a hot summer's day, this will be an opportunity to refresh yourself with the joys of swimming and water sports.
