Three charming Holiday renting in Corsica (Cap Corse) with personal terraces and sea view


Luri in a few words

In the heart of the Cap Corse, the commune of Luri has the advantage to shorten distances for people wanting to crisscross the Corsican Cape territory. Its valley (the deepest of the Corsican cape peninsula), which houses a river and surrounded by peaks (North, West and South) hosts no less than three natural areas of fauna, flora and ecological interest (ZNIEFF). Luri culminates at 1136 m (3727,2 ft).
This topography offers a multitude of hiking routes each with a variety of height (from beginner to advanced), multiple landscapes and points of view (the Tuscan archipelago, Tuscany coasts, Liguria and the French Riviera, hillsides with dense Corsican scrub and forests, “crest pelées”, wonderful views of Corsican villages) establishing as a key storage of biodiversity, which is preserved although very fragile.
A few trails, traced in the Corsican scrub, will enchant the mountain biking enthusiasts. The paved roads linking the villages and other communes of the Cap together will please the bicycle lovers.

In the East is Luri’s marina, Santa Severa, created at the beginning of the 18th century. Its little port and beach on the Tyrrhenian Sea are facing the island of Elbe.

Today the commune of Luri is composed of 18 villages, each one having their specificities mainly thanks to their geographical implantation whilst offering a common architectural style: the traditional dry rock walls and flagstone roofs. Almost every village holds a chapel, as a proof of a rich historical and cultural background, that goes all the way back to prehistory. Besides, many Corsican locations, monuments and work of art have been classified National Heritage Sites.

More than 700 inhabitants live all year long in Luri (i luresi) which makes it a lively commune, offering all kind of shops and services allowing great local autonomy.
It is, thus, the typical village of Poghju (Poggio) built on the peak overlooking A piazza (Luri’s main village) and a major part of the valley, that hosts the location of our houses, and, we hope, your next holidays!
