Corsica: Small Town Charm
We visited a number of Corsica's small hill towns, and they were delightful. But there are some interesting hairpin bends on the approaches.
As you approach the towns, the first thing you'll see is the bell tower. Next will be the cemetery - mausoleums with a view!
I'm always intrigued by how people manage to create a garden, even in a cobblestone alleyway.
Pigna, near Calvi, has become known as the village of artisans. Unfortunately, very few of them were open when we visited. However, the music box store was open and it was delightful.
Pigna has also worked hard to preserve the original facades of its buildings and has some lovely little alleyways.
Another pretty town is Sartène, between Bonifacio and Ajaccio.
These boys weren't too sure they wanted me taking their picture.
