The Park Of Saleccia : The Art of Gardening in the Heart of the Corsican maquis. It is the very essence of a region that is expressed here. Through the plants of its undergrowth and the remains of an ancient agricultural tradition, the whole of Corsica herself can be explored, smelt and admired here. You walk between olive-trees, cypresses and oleanders and the entire Mediterranean is sublimated in this exceptional background.
On 7 ha of Landscape Park you will discover :
- The ways of the maquis
- The ways of the olive tree
- The Mediterranean space
- The oleander valley
- The romantic path
- The path of wilderness
The patient renaissance of this seaboard site, luckily preserved from all urbanisation projects, is based upon the knowledge and respect of history. It is a hymn to the wild beauty of this island and also a demonstration of faith in her future.
