Lumio Travel guide
Lumio : Michelin's recommendations
This opulent market town is laid out in a round above the large Baroque church, which is flanked by a tall bell tower decorated with openwork. Located in the Balagne region (famed in France for being the birthplace of Laetitia Casta), it is set among olive trees and fruit orchards and offers panoramic views over the Calvi Gulf. On avenue Bella Vista you can't miss the imposing square construction whose summit is decorated with arcades: the Carrubo, built in the 18C by an abbot to house a school and take in the poor of the village. Go on until you reach the Occi ruins, an old abandoned village that overlooks Lumio and the Sant'Ambroggio marina.

Stationed on the Plage de l'Arinella, this restaurant is appealing in its exoticism. By candlelight with your feet in the sand, tuck into excellent seafood, Corsican classics and dishes with Asian influences. It is necessary to book in the evenings.
rte de Calvi F - 20260 Lumio
This restaurant with a contemporary decor has a pretty terrace. It is an ideal setting to taste cooking imbued with the Mediterranean and Corsican terroir. The cuisine of the young chef from Marseille is generous, fine and full of flavour.
