Silvareccio is located at 650 metres above sea level and is part of the ancient parish of Ampugnani. It is one of the most populated and of the biggest villages in the region of Castagniccia. It is part of the regional natural park of Corsica. Several peaks can be reached from Silvareccio, in particular Monte Sant'Angelo (1218 m) which offers a splendid view over the Cap Corse, the region of Folelli and various inland mountains such as Monte Cinto and Monte San Petrone. The main watercourse of the village is the Fium'Alto, which flows into the Tyrrhenian Sea to the east of Corsica.

This village is very pleasant and full of flowers: take a moment to admire its terraced gardens and its hanging gardens. If you are tired, do not hesitate to sit on one of the many benches of the village: they are there to encourage conviviality and for tired visitors.

Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Sebastian (17th century), which contains several works of artistic and historical interest, including a very large cross of the Passion. If you love walking, you can visit the chapel of St Augustine (13th century), which is located at an altitude of 700 metres. In the Casa Cumuna Sant'Anghjulu you can find an exposition dedicated to arts and to local crafts opened by the cultural association of Castagniccia. If you want, you can also buy a little souvenir.
Between the villages of Silvareccio and Casalta you can find the site of Truchinacce, which has three engraved stelae whose symbols have not yet been deciphered.
