Pigna

Authenticity! That’s the keyword to describe the magnificent village of Pigna. Little houses with blue shutters, clinging on to one another. A maze of paved streets which will lead you to village squares, fountains, breathtaking panoramic views and arts and crafts workshops just waiting for you to push open the door. The friendly local people are eagerly waiting to meet you. The best time of the year to come here is at the beginning of July. The festival of voices, Festivoce, will transport you to another land, that of music and vocals, both from here and elsewhere…

The Fango

Around bends, over bridges, the coastal landscape is transformed into mountains and forests… welcome to Falasorma Marzulinu. And through the middle of it all flows the river Fango. Enjoy admiring the rocks, crystal-clear and fresh waters, and natural swimming pools where there’s something for everyone. Stop for a picnic, people of all generations will love jumping off the rocks, sliding down the stones and just having a great time in the Balagne.

They are authentic, passionate and inspiring. This voyage has a name… A Core Datu!
