Glad we saw this very photogenic abandoned stone-wall village, high up on a mountainside above Lumio village. The walk to access it is suitable only for the able-bodied, with a steep gradient (1:1 most of the way) on slippery rocks and stones. Sensible shoes, water...More

Like previous reviews suggested, we parked at Camping Panoramic and took the path on the other side of the street. Beautiful views on the hike up and it took us 20 min to the village.

I would recommend the path opposite Camping Panoramic to start the walk as we couldn't get a parking spot in Lumio. Interesting deserted village with a history. Splendid views from it as well and interesting terracing of orchards on the way up.

When coming here you'll be in the village in 15-20 minutes. If you have hiking shoes with you climb the hill in the back. The panoramic view is spectacular.

We started from right behind the restaurant Chez Charles and walked right up to Occi. Beautiful views along the way. Occi was bigger than I expected, but the little village is really in ruins, can't go inside anything (isn't allowed too). Return trek from starting...More
