Located on the eastern coast of Corsica, a few steps away from our vineyard, the Pinia forest is the last large maritime pine forest on the Corsican coast. A true place of harmony between fauna and flora, this pine forest extends over 988 acres. Bordered by the banks of the Urbinu pond and by 2.2 miles of turquoise beach.
Pinia is in the hearts of all Corsicans who attach great importance to its protection. This wild nugget belongs to the conservatory of the littoral. The forest offers many surprises to those who walk through it, between the pine trees and the typical maquis of the island of beauty, it is a real labyrinth of steep paths. Only one point of reference, the sun! A sensory experience where the sound of the waves and the cicadas, the sweet amber smell of the sun-warmed pines, the sand under your feet…
