Getting to the fishing village Campomoro from the hamlet Belvédère is either a 5 minutes ride by car OR if you take the ancient hiking trail, approx. 5,5 km, it takes more or less 1 hour..depending on how many stops you make to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. As Belvédère is located on a hilltop it takes ofcourse longer time to get there from Campomoro…
I won’t be able to share the beautiful and sweet smelling perfume of the maquis..nor the butterflies that were flying around…but here are a few photos I took that can give you an idea how wonderful it was walking between Belvédère and Campomoro, and what you would miss out when taking the car ;-)
When walking on this hiking trail I was not entirely alone, hundreds of lizzards (Tilliguerta/Tyrrhenian wall lizard) kept me company along my way….
the summer asphodel (Aspohodelus aestivus)
the sweet smelling ciste labdanum
a bliss for the soul to walk this ancient trail…in total serenity

Sometimes I had to pass the road and walk along it in order to continue the hiking trail…
I passed by this beautiful cemetery (Cimetière de la Punta di l’Omu ) on my way…
with its typical monumental tombs facing the sea. From here you can also the Tour de Campomoro.
Amazing seaviews along the way….
And at last, arriving to the fishing village Campomoro!
