Tallone is located at an altitude of 465 metres and is part of the ancient parish of Serra. This village is made up of three different areas: the upper one – which is covered with Corsican maquis and woods; the plain – which is largely cultivated and traversed by the river of Arena; and the coastal area – which is plenty of ponds, the best known of which is the pond of Diana. It is the deepest and the third largest bond in Corsica. This pond is fed by the stream of Arena, the stream of Pietroni and the stream of Ronsignese. In Tallone the oyster farming is practised extensively.

This village is an excellent starting point for many family excursions, which will allow you to discover the beaches and the mountains of Corsica. If you like the sea, then you should go to the beach of Tallone which is the wildest beach of the region of Linguizzetta. This beach is bordered by the pond of Diana and by the bond of Terrenzana. It is a rather peaceful beach because it is quite difficult to find.

Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Caesar (15th century), which is flanked by seven non-communicating side chapels. The church is lit by four windows and has been completely renovated recently. Inside the church, you will find many artworks of great artistic and historical interest. Near the main street of the village, you can see the old railway station built at the end of the 19th century and destroyed by bombing during the Second world war.

Tallone is located at 22 km from Aléria, at 66 km from Corte and at 77 km from Bastia. This village is crossed by the D116 road.
