Occi is a deserted village above Lumio in Balagne. It is only accessible by a small path.
It was deserted by its inhabitants in the nineteen century. It then fell in ruins. Laetitia Casta (famous French top model and actress) financed a part of its rebuilding including the one of Annunziata church. An association intending to protect the village makes its best so that no road suitable for vehiclesd will reach the village and Occi will not be commercially exploited.
Since my last visit in 2000, the church has been completely restored. Church services are now sometimes celebrated in Occi.
