The GR20 in Corsica!
Relax at Riva Bella Spa & Thalasso after tramping the GR20, Mare a Mare, Mare e Monti or Customs Officers Trail
The GR20 is the mythical hiking trail that crosses Corsica north to south from Calenzana to Conca, passing by the famous Aiguilles de Bavella, the Capitellu lake, the Renoso and Cosciunu pozzi and Nino lake.
The GR20 is about 16 days of walking in the high mountains, overnighting in refuges, being blown away by breathtaking panoramas. It is obviously a demanding physical undertaking that requires good preparation.
When it´s all over, the whole team at Riva Bella in Corsica is at your service to pamper you, offering body, foot and back massages to make you forget any pain you may have felt during the GR20.
The little hands of the thalasso's beauticians are at your service to get you back into shape: relaxing and ayurvedic massages – treat yourself to a beauty makeover with body and facial treatments or a new haircut at the hairdressing salon.
The Mare a Mare or the Mare e Monti are also extended Corsican hikes. Cousins of the GR20, they allow you to discover the Corsican mountain peaks from east to west (and vice versa).
Whether for the Mare a Mare or the Mare e Monti, refuges offer a place to spend the night and replenish your stomachs. Often of modest comfort, we recommend that you extend your stay in Corsica with a relaxing stopover at Riva Bella to experience another beautiful perspective of the Isle of Beauty.
Riva Bella resort is an opportunity to spend more time surrounded by nature, but this time by the sea; relaxing, pampering and regenerating after that long hike.
No more need to be on the move, everything is on-site: restaurant, fitness club, yoga classes, spa and thalasso treatments, massages, sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, and a beach of more than a kilometre to relax and reflect.
After spending nights in huts and tents on the GR20 or Mare e Monti, you will surely delight in a good bed.
We offer different categories of accommodation, from the most economical to the most luxurious, with bio-comfort mattresses for a satisfying night's sleep after your hike in the heights of the island.
You can also take advantage of half or full board in the restaurant to contrast your expedient camping meals while hiking.
No need to carry anything in your rucksack, no more problems with the stove, in the restaurant your delectable meals will be prepared and served to you on the seafront.
From April to November, Riva Bella resort is naturist. No more thermal underclothes sticking to your skin, no more sweating and washing clothes in the creek. At Riva Bella, live simply in the simplest possible way.
After the GR20, Mare a Mare or Mare e Monti, what an ideal opportunity to free yourself from constraints (and your backpack) and discover naturism.
It is compulsory for adults to be naked on the naturist beach, but in the resort you choose what suits you best. In the restaurant, however, one must be clothed.
Do you still have energy left after your alpine hiking? Take part in the sports classes supervised by Jérôme: fitness, Pilates, abdomen/buttock training, fitball, or practice aquagym at the thalasso and spa centre.
Discover the surroundings of Riva Bella by walking along the hiking trails near the lagoons and in the maquis. Much shorter than the GR20 or Mare e Mare, these paths offer you an olfactory experience and the opportunity to discover coastal Corsican fauna and flora.
