Explore Piana & its surroundings


The charming village of Piana, ranked among the most beautiful in France, is full of wealth and beauty. Sumptuously perched in the famous pink granite cliffs of its coves, you will never weary of its exceptional panorama which reveals the majestic Gulf of Porto... 

Piana, 300 years old, built in the shape of an amphitheater, is dominated by the very beautiful Church of Saint Mary. Go for a walk and get lost in its charming narrow streets to discover its typical small white houses with a picturesque look, and their striking beauty.

Once out of Piana, the surroundings hide many treasures!


Relax on the beach of Arone, which will offer you landscapes of green cliffs, bordered by an expanse of fine sand, licked by a turquoise and transparent sea... The cove of Ficaghjola will amaze you with its seabed, its wilderness and its deep turquoise water.


The site of the Gulf of Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Corsica. Its mountainous peaks of lush vegetation and its pink granite coves that dive into into crystal-clear waters of infinite shades from turquoise to indigo will take your breath away.


End your day with a sweet moment in the majestic coves, discover its multiple emblematic rocks with various shapes sculpted by erosion, and admire the sun setting and sublimating the mythical “Heart” of Piana, before disappearing behind the horizon...
