Come and discover the power of the natural environment, at the heart of the Balagne mountains. Cool off in the shade of the oak and chestnut trees in a small village.  Pioggiola is an invitation to discover Balagne in a whole new light.

In the centre of the village stands A Stazzona, the forge. This unique building houses an open-air theatre. It is here, in the midst of the sculpted tree trunks, that the Association des Rencontres Internationales creates their original theatre productions. If you are lucky enough to be here in August, you could attend a dozen shows, produced right here in this one-of-a-kind venue.

In this village, the farming terraces and little paths lined with stone walls bear witness to the centuries of agro-pastoral activity. So what are you waiting for? Venture off the beaten track and why not try the heritage trail of Forcili.

Your timeless walk will lead you to the old village, now known as the hamlet of Forcili. Walk alongside the stream, follow the stones and ruins and you will find yourself in the chestnut grove, with only the sound of the running water as your guide. On your way, you will see the remains of the former farming lands and discover the enchanting atmosphere of Ghjunsani.
