Balagne is also called the garden of Corsica because of its fertile grounds and extended agricultural activity. The region is one of the main producer of olives and olive oil and even has its own local variey called “niellaghja”. It is also endowed with a beautiful winding coast, sprinkled with some pristine white sand beaches and red granite rocks. The bay of Calvi is probably the jewel in this crown. To top it all, the region also offers a very rich mountain side: scenic landscapes hiking, river swimming and finally more churches that you could ever wish for.
