Orlata Waterfall Ajaccio, Propriano, Sartene

Walks | Bastelica | Corsica

This stroll starts in a hundred-year-old chestnut grove, where it is not rare to cross the famous Corsican wild pigs.

After approximately half an hour of walking, you will join the former stone irrigation canal of Volta. After half an hour of additional walking along the canal, leave this one at the level of the brook by rising on the right, to join the second level of the system of irrigation. You will leave the chestnut grove, to enter in the field of holm oaks, and eventually reach the waterfall of Orlata. This stroll can be extended by a walking of an extra hour towards the sheepfolds of Verdanese from the waterfall Orlata.

The path starts at the Northeast of the village Bastelica. Follow the sign of the restaurant " Chez Paul ". A sign indicates the departure.
