The drive in this mountainous area of Corsica is amazing, the views are fantastic, the numerous shades of green and the dazzling colors of the flowers are great, and then out of nowhere you get a first glimpse of the lake. It is a man made lake formed by a dam, but still it is beautiful. One can have several... More

We drove up to Tolla from Ajaccio. It takes about an hour but the views are worth it. Because we are here in winter (February), nothing is open so we didn't do down to the lake, but just driving up the mountain and taking in the scenery was worth the effort. Just take it easy both ways and make sure... More

Quite interesting but a bit disjointed. Displays could have been set out in a more interesting manner.

We stopped near this lake to take a quick look on a bus tour of the island. It was a beautiful, peaceful spot. The downside was that on our tour, it took nearly 90 minutes to get there for a 15 min. stop with very primitive facilities. Even though it was very nice, for us the view was not with... More

A large choice of kayaks and pedalos - some with slides - on a beautiful manmade lake in the mountains.

A wonderful place nestled in the rolling hills of Corsica. Very easy to do a day trip from Ajaccio (1-1.5 hours by car). Nice also to rent the pedalos, but do book in advance! Water tends to be a lot colder than the sea.

Any detour in the Corsican is enjoyable, but combining it with a pedal-boat ride in the fresh Tolla lake is nothing less than beatiful and enjoyable and the same time. Breath taking views, clean fresh water, and quietness.

Took a coach tour around the island, which has some stunning scenery almost prehistoric in appearance. We visited a local forest which has some stunning views over the lake of Tolla and surrounding areas. Not a trip for anyone who does not like heights. The roads have steep drops and are in places very narrow, only wide enough for one... More

You can take very nice pictures of the lake. The dam is impressive. Access road is very difficult and winding.
