U Furu is the only inland naturist campsite in Corsica, and is wonderfully situated on a small river along which are endless small and large rock-pools and waterfalls. Spending days dabbling in these and sunbathing on the rocks is our idea of heaven! Access to the more distant pools from the site requires a bit of scrambling here and there so a degree of fitness/agility is required, but it’s well worth the effort! However, there is an alternative level footpath, much used by ‘textiles’ but I’ll keep its location secret!

The route from Porto Vecchio ring-road to you Furu is fairly easy with a large caravan, (take the roundabout exit to Murratello and then follow the very obvious you Furu signs) with just a couple of narrow stretches, and the final few hundred metres of dirt road is not too difficult. However, there is a fairly tight turn over the bridge into the site, so best park before this and call at reception. I would recommend booking well in advance if you have a large caravan as only a few pitches are suitable.

Facilities on site are fairly basic, but adequate, with open communal showers as is the norm on naturist sites. There is a swimming pool and bar area with a small restaurant. Bread is delivered daily on a pre-order basis.

For excursions to other wonderful spots, try the mountain road to Ospedale and Zonza. From the site, turn left at the bridge at the bridge with metal rails. Just after Ospedale is a Parc Aventur with a very extensive ‘Go Ape’ with graded routes, including Via Ferrata, for all ages and abilities (and bravery!) from age 3 upwards. There are many mountain hiking possibilities, or you could continue the drive over the Bavella Pass down to Solenzara. (See my report on Ponte Grossu). Another obvious day out is to Bonifacio, which must have one of the most spectacular setting of any town in Europe. Parking in high season is difficult, but it’s worthwhile using one of the free car parks owned by the sea-trip company, as the trip along the coast is brilliant!

On a general point, taking a large caravan to Corsica need not be as daunting as some people would have it as long as you plan your routes carefully. The main east coast road is fine from Bastia to Bonifacio, as is the Bastia - Corte - Aleria road. However the Bastia-Ajaccio road beyond Corte is not caravan friendly especially through the towns/villages, despite the vast amount of money spent in recent years on road improvement. I believe the Porto Vecchio - Ajaccio road is not too bad (not done it recently, ) but many routes on the western side between Ajaccio, Calvi, Ile Rousse, Florent, Patrimonio may be best left to motor-homes and cars. (See also my report Rondinara).
