We thoroughly enjoyed the short hike through unpaved roads to discover the standing stones. As we were doing a road trip around the island, we didn't mind driving a return route to find this site, fortunately I think this fact it has kept it relatively...More

There is just one long road near Sartene to get to Cauria (even though it's closer to Bonifacio, you can't get there from there). And then a long walk. But it was all quite pleasant and interesting and interesting to imagine life there in prehistoric...More

Wow, these walking around 'live' museums were full of surprises and interesting tidbits. Go on a day that is not too hot.

Loved the walking path mostly for the beautiful scenery. I felt very serene there. Do bring water, especially if you are not used to walking. The monuments are marked and well preserved. A touch of mystery that veils their origin adds to the charm. One...More

Great circular walk and free of charge to see the standing stones at Cauria, great setting in the Corsican maquis.

From Propiano we drove towards Tizzano stopping at Les Megalithes de Cauria consisting of three sites, two with menhir alignments and one with dolmen. The walk in was lovely through pastoral scenery with rocky land formations in the distance. No admission - what's better than...More

When we turned onto the D48a we found the road was under reconstruction. Almost turned back but persevered and after 20 to 30mins we were rewarded by coming to a group of parked cars and a sign to the three main sites. The walking path...More

Just outside Cauria and not towards Tizzano, so if you are on the road to Tizzano turn at the signs to Cauria and keep going about 5kms. Our tour book sent us in the wrong direction. In April/May when the temperature is 20 degrees this...More

This is a good walk in fairly open fields so make sure you wear sturdy shoes and bring water. It was 33*C in the shade in October when we visited. We planned to picnic but there really isn't a good shady spot. We also had...More

Peaceful and the scent of sage everywhere. Flowers must be blooming this time of year. Did not spend much time but a nice break from beach activities.
