The Restonica Valley leads from the town of Corte in the center of Corsica to the mountains. The road leading through the valley is very narrow and overcomes a difference in altitude of almost 1000 m over a distance of 15 km.
At the end of the valley is the Bergerie de Grotelle at . Two destinations that can be reached within one or two hours are the two lakes Lac de Melo and Lac de Capitello . Both of them feed the Restonica River.
The Oriente Sea lies above the valley after a 1000 m ascent .
