There were only 2 of us for this excursion (3 with the driver). It was awesome. The path is hilly but the 4x4 is full of role. We were able to discover some plants of the maquis as well as the beach of Ghignu where the two of us stayed for almost 4 hours. No boat anchored in the bay. A truly magical moment when we were alone in the world.

September 12, 2020, cultural ride in 4/4 in the Agriates desert. At noon, lunch of very good cured meats and Corsican cheese in an old village, Ghugnu beach and its white sand. Super day thanks to our guide Thierry, super nice who masters the driving, culture and history of Corsica.

Nice visit, Thierry is a great guide who brought us a lot of information and a lot of friendliness throughout the day! The landscapes are magnificent and the beach superb

Top guide who taught us lots of things about the Agriates desert and Corsica in general. Very beautiful and pleasant beach.

Perfect 4x4 excursion, Laëtitia is very friendly and likes to share her knowledge. I recommend, guaranteed sensations.
