The site corsicabus.org is your friend ;) (check back for timetable's updates!)
From the airport you want to take the bus to Porto Vecchio. The bus stop is Figari. Here is the timetable.
Once in Porto Vecchio you either take the Bastia bus and get off at S.Lucie de Porto Vecchio and then phone the La Tonnelle camping to arrange a minibus pickup, or you may want to check with the camping to pick you up right from Porto Vecchio.
Gite Le Tonnelle at Conca - website http://www.gite-la-tonnelle.com - phone +33 (0)4 95 71 46 55
Since you have time, I suggest you check up with the gite well in advance for the proper arrangements.

Sorry to piggy back on this thread but I have had a look at the bus timetable as I want to go from Bastia to Conca on 29 May.rive in Bastia at 11am. Am I correct in reading the bus timetable that there is ohnly one bus daily from Bastia to Porto Vecchio? and that is at 8:30?

Ben, if I'm not mistaken from this page http://www.corsicabus.org/busPVecchio/PVE_Bastia.html I see there is another run at 16.00 hrs. (Drop off at S.Lucie at 18.30).

Thanks, wasn't sure what Gare Routiere meant

Had a look at the timetable too.....seems a better service now....definitely two per day morning and afternoon and with the addition of a stop in both directions at Poretta airport.
I sure that this drop-off was in one direction only in the past?
15th June - 15th September including Sunday.

Correction to previous comment....re Poretta. Looked at this again and besides Poretta being on the list it does also show ....supermarche Carrefour....I guess that means Casamozza?
Taxi drivers can smile again!

In view of the confusion re the Bastia-Porto Vecchio timetable, I have added an extra paragraph of explanations! http://www.corsicabus.org/busPVecchio/PVE_Bastia.html

I was uncertain about the bus reaching Poretta.....haven't been on the island in July or in August.
So to Poretta, from the South, but only during both July and August.
A very useful service for those finishing in the South with a homeward flight to reach.

Thanks heaps. Looks like I'm still snookered as I don't land till 11, so will have to spend a day in Bastia

I can't recall if you are arriving by boat to Bastia or on a flight.
If as you say you land at 1100 hrs. you have plenty of time to get to a Southbound bus ....unless perhaps you have heard that Monday the 29th, May is some sort of holiday on the Island?
1600 hrs. leaving Bastia for PV.

Thanks! my wife says I will get lost and she is probably correct as I can't even read the timetable!! I do wan to spend some time in Bastia but prefer to do it at the end before I fly out in case I run behind schedule on the hike.
