Does anyone know where I can purchase a hardcopy of Paddy Dillon's "GR20: Corsica" guidebook (published by Cicerone) in Bastia or anywhere else in Corsica?

Many thanks

Thanks for the prompt response Alan.

Unfortunately they have advised they do not stock it.

Any other suggestions?

Many thanks

Only yesterday, there was a copy on sale at the Auberge de la Foret at Bonifatu. That's a 5 hour low-level walk from Calenzana, and if you take it, then you can rejoin the GR20 either by climbing to Piobbu, or short-cutting straight to Carozzu. The book looked slightly used, so I guess there's a 'story' behind it. My guess is that someone followed the GR20 from Calenzana to Piobbu, then maybe reckoned it was all too much, and descended to Bonifatu and bunked off for a beach holiday, leaving the book at the hotel. It's now on sale on a shelf full of Corsican products. If you want, you can phone them, make sure it's still there, and ask if they'll hold it for you - 0495650998.
