Vallecalle is located at an altitude of 311 metres and is part of the ancient parish of Rosolo. This village, which enjoys a Mediterranean climate with moderate temperature variations, represents an excellent starting point for many excursions: from Vallecalle you can reach Monte di Lucciana, the highest point of this village (511 m).
The main watercourses are the Bevinco – a river that rises at an altitude of 1395 metres and that ends in the Biguglia pond – the stream of Cicendolle and the stream of Torreno.

We know that the economy of this village was based on the cultivation of cereals: indeed we can find some traces of ancient buildings used centuries ago by peasants. Agriculture continues to play an important role in the village's economy. Every year, Vallecalle hosts A fiera di Vallecalle, which is mainly dedicated to agriculture and handicrafts.

Art lovers can visit the parish church St Paul (18th century), whose bell tower and front section date back to the 19th century. The church is rather simple, but it is in excellent condition and contains several objects of historical and cultural interest. There are several chapels which are in good condition: for example, the chapel of St Roch (17th century) and several funeral chapels (19th century).

Vallecalle is located at 22 km from Bastia, at 59 km from Île-Rousse and at 69 km from Corte. This village is crossed by the D62 road.
