Belvédère à Campomoro

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 ;-)
