Site Naturel de la Vallée du Fango


Nicknamed “the beautiful island” for good reason, Corsica is home to the 60,000-acre, UNESCO-designated Site Naturel de la Vallée du Fango, created in 1977 in the rugged interior just outside of Calvi, and whose terrain rises rapidly from sea level to an elevation of 2,500 meters. Ancient villages and stone churches lie in the valley traversed by the mineral-rich, gurgling Fango river, where birds and butterflies flit about the oak woods and Mediterranean vegetation.
