Enter the heart of the Niolu, and discover Calasima

We’re visiting the heart of the Niolu region (north-west), and more specifically: Calasima. This village is known to be the highest one in terms of habitation apparently on the island, at 1095m. It offers magnificent views, one in particular is of the Paglia Orba peak (2525m). In many ways, this little village has been able to remain as it was in the past, and protect itself from needless overdevelopment.

As you have already read and learnt, this region is the land of farming and shepherds, and where local products such as goat cheese, charcuterie and chestnut flour is very much in demand. Somewhere to visit when you feel more attracted to quieter surroundings, bathing in nature with many cycling, mountain and hiking trails for you to discover and enjoy – makes a appreciable change from touristic attractions too.
Another detour to take into consideration, especially if you are an ardent nature lover, and take pleasure in breath-taking landscapes and mighty peaks.
