Bilia is located at 609 metres above sea level and is part of the ancient parish of Sartène. This small village is surrounded by medium-sized mountains and is located at a few kilometres from Sartène, not far from the beaches of Valinco. It is a perfect place to discover Corsica's natural heritage and a perfect location if you like beach and mountains.
The beaches of Valinco are very numerous and very different from each other: to the north you will find two white sand beaches, the beach of Cala d'Orzu (whose the access is quite difficult) and the beach of Cupabia (one of the most beautiful beaches on the west coast of the island). The other beaches are made up of coarse sand, but in general they are easy to reach.

This village is part of the Rocca micro-region, which houses numerous prehistoric sites: in Bilia, archaeologists found several menhir fragments dating back to the 2nd millennium BC.

This small village has several old granite houses. In one of these houses, you can see a woman's head (which comes from the ruins of the old church of St Lawrence), other houses are built with salvaged stones (most of which come from the old Romanesque church).
You can also visit the parish church of St Lawrence, which was rebuilt in the 17th century.

Bilia is located at 11 km from Sartène, at 65,5 km from Porto-Vecchio and at 88,5 km from Ajaccio. This village is crossed by the D221 road.
