The charming village of Evisa, a stroll in the heart of Corsica

Between sea and mountains, discover Evisa, a small village where life is good, and where you will be happy to find a little peace and quiet.

Here everyone knows one another. A beautiful chestnut forest that autumn colours dress in yellow and red hues stands just outside the village. Amid this incredibly beautiful natural setting, Marina Ceccaldi, daughter of Françoise, has been pioneering chestnut culture. There is no one like her to make better use of Evisa chestnuts, refined and delicate. Her sugar-coated chestnuts, jams and candied fruits are popular across the whole island.

In Evisa, you may also come across prosperous black pigs living in the wild, busy feeding on fallen chestnuts on the ground, the source of the delicious charcuterie with a highly fragrant taste that are produced here.

Farther away in the forest, in the middle of a quiet glade, the bees of the village beekeeper Alain Luciani gather nectar, awaiting the harvest of their honey, which is a tasteful ambrosia with a touch of chestnut… Evisa is also a great place for sports in the midst of nature, like hiking, of course, but also climbing. A nice way to imagine what life used to be in the Corsican valleys.
