Cap Corsica

Cap Corse is one of the most unspoiled regions of the whole Isle of Beauty.

Corsica is “a Mountain in the Sea”. Of anywhere in Corsica, it’s Cap Corse in the extreme north of the island that merits the name. This peninsula is 40km long and 15km wide. In the middle runs a ridge, with Mont Stello rising to 1307m.

There are 25 beaches in Cap Corse, the sandy beaches being concentrated on the east coast near our house (Pietracorbara, Cagnano, Tamarone) and to the north (Barcaghju).

In the house is a detailed booklet of all our favourite places in Cap Corsica - beaches, walks, restaurants, shops and more, with information on all the below activities… if you will be coming to Casa Albore then we can send you an electronic copy of our booklet to help you start planning your stay…
