Hi all,

My girlfriend and I will be arriving in to Bastia airport early on Sunday 27th August. Our plan is to get the bus over to Clavi and then up to Calenzana to start the gr20 early the next day.

Where is the best place to pick up supplies on the way? Will the spar in Calenzana be open (it says so online - does anyone have contact details so that I can confirm?)?

Thanks!

James

Restricted service at Spar on Sunday at Calenzana I guess that there is no way for you to reach the village before closing time.....Spar shop in Bastia or some other smaller shop open on a Sunday?...but maybe you don't want to travel into Bastia the airport is a few Kls. from the town.
I have had supplies from a small shop in Calvi on Sunday.
At the times that I have been in Corse the Supermarkets do not open as is normal in the Mediterranean area. Sunday is a rest day and family day for commerce.

Hi Gaffr,

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm more likely to find something on Sunday morning in Bastia, especially if I can get there before midday. Then I can take the bus from Bastia to Calvi at 17h, and the bus from Calvi to Calenzana at 19h10.

Thanks again for your help,

James

Hi Isabel,

According to the website http://www.corsicabus.org/busCalvi/CLY_Calenzana.html.

Do you think that's incorrect and I should plan on catching the earlier bus?

Hi Isabel,

The second table gives the summer timetable, which says -

From 1st July to 3rd September 2017,
every day including Sundays and bank holidays

This timetable gives two buses from Calvi - one at 14h30 and one at 19h10.
