Our territories

Castagniccia Mare e Monti, it's 65 villages on 2 territories !


Situated in Northern Corsica, the new interconnected community is rather recent since it started on the 1st of January 2017. It includes several micro regions: Casinca, Orezza, Ampugnani, Casacconi and Golu Suttanu, which means 42 towns with a large majority of them situated in the inland except for the large coastal towns of Venzolasca, Vescovato and Penta di Casinca.

The Casinca region forms a coherent region since all its villages are perched as what its name means. You can discover numerous cultural and historical features especially through its built heritage.

The Casaconni and Golu Suttanu come from the merging of the Casacconi pieve, the canton of Alto Casacconi, and the Golo valley which follow the river of the same name. Most of them built on rocky ridges, these villages offer a panoramic view on the valleys of Castagniccia and the sea.

Castagniccia is composed of Orezza and Ampugnani and is characterised by its high hills abounding in chestnut trees and in authentic villages built in lush greenery. This region’s riches, such as Orezza, the natural spring water, its chestnut flour, and its numerous villages, their schist roofs and their inhabitants, will make you discover Corsica as you’ve never seen it before.
