Charismatic Calvi, vibrant and busy, this diminutive town is found in the picturesque French departement of Haute-Corse in the north of Corsica. It is situated close to the foothills of Monte Cinto in the Corsican north west of La Balagne. In excellent company, the holiday town of Calvi is only 24 kilometres from L’Ile Rousse and an hour and a bit drive from historic Bastia.
Enjoying a close relationship with its neighbours France and Italy, La Balagne has enjoyed a steady flow of tourism ever since the 1940’s. The area is therefore relatively more developed than plenty of spots of the island and is a superb location from which to tour the surroundings.
Ferries to and from the mainland are frequent without complications and when all else fails, there is the Corsica Railway only too happy to oblige.
Due to its very fertile soil, the region of La Balagne is colourfully known as ‘Corsica’s Orchard’ packed with the fruits of the land. The region is of course famed for its plentiful supply of delicious honey, wine and fruit with a landscape to reflect of olive groves, luscious fruit orchards and vineyards. You know what they say, where there are vineyards, there are wine-tastings, so look out for those signs.
Getting around shouldn’t present a problem despite the distinct lack of buses here. If you haven’t hired a car or bike, there is the fun small train that runs along the coast between Ile Rousse to Calvi.
During June every year, music lovers are in for a treat when the Calvi Jazz Festival bursts into action. Taking place at a variety of venues about the island, the festival attracts audiences to the most unexpected of places including cafes, the port and alleyways about town. For those whose tastes are broader than jazz, never fear, for there is much more to offer besides, including salsa, blues and reggae.
A trip out to the citadel rewards with brilliant views across the bay as well as ample supply of vessels for various styles of seafaring from kayaking to catamaran excursions.
While out by the harbour, look out for some pieces of stunning architecture including the seventeenth century Santa Maria Church and up towards the upper town you will find the fifteenth century Genoese fortified Cathedral of St Jean Baptiste. The cathedral, originally built in the thirteenth century is renowned for possessing brilliant examples of woodcarvings and the infamous crucifix.
Originally known as the Red Island because of its crimson rocky promontory, the Ile Rousse offers a delightful alternative to the charms of Calvi. Worthy of the 24 kilometre trip from the resort of Calvi, L’Ile Rousse sits overlooking a bay presenting satisfying views out to sea and along its mixed rocky and sandy shorelines.
Within an hour and a half, you could be enjoying the charms of Corsica’s historic town on the east coast, that of sensational Bastia. Boasting three hundred and forty full days of sunshine per year, undeveloped Bastia is the Med’s best kept secret. Enjoy its tranquillity while it lasts.
