Activities in Lumio in High-Corsica
The village of Lumio is one of the most popular seaside destinations in Corsica. Located in High-Corsica, in La Balagne, this village perched on the narrow streets and typical houses is endowed with a certain charm. The region of La Balagne abounds with treasures between its coastal part, its hinterland with hills flowing into the sea as well as its perched villages like Lumio, Sant'Antonito, Pigna or Speloncato.
The wine estates
You will find not far from our villa with swimming pool superb vineyards. Do not miss Le Clos Culombu, which organizes many events each year. You will also enjoy visiting the distillery of essential oils "l'Astratella" located in the countryside of Salduccio. Do not hesitate to ask us for advice on the cultural visits to be made near our charming house in Lumio.
The mountain that plunges into the sea offers you hiking trails as rough as prestigious. At the gateway to the village of Calenzana, 13 km away, is the GR20, a hike that extends over nearly 180 kilometers and can be carried out in 16 days with an average of 7 hours of walking per day.
The municipality does not forget its agro-pastoral tradition, relying on ecoresponsible and sustainable tourism with the rehabilitation of municipal roads and trails and the opening of new hiking trails.
The abandoned village of Occi
Situated above the village of Lumio, this is a must for walks in Balagne. From the start, the infinite perspective between the sea and the sky drags the visitor out of time. The granitic silhouettes, alternately warm and disturbing according to the mood of the sky, fan the daydream or curiosity. You can visit the fragile ruins of this abandoned village, its threshing floor, or the chapel of the Annunziata where certain services are celebrated.
