Corsica is rightly known as the Ile de Beauté (Isle of Beauty) and is worth a visit at any time of year for its stunning coastline, rugged interior or its great climate – even in winter the weather is mild and pleasant.

Visit Bucugnanu (20, Corse) in November and you can indulge in a Chestnut Festival (Fiera di a Castagna) 9 – 11 December 2022

As well as celebrating the local nut you can discover the many different ways in which chestnuts can be used – roasted, as a flavouring for both sweet and savoury dishes, for flour, bread, pastries, honey etc
