Geologically, the land is made up of sandstone and layers different types of clay and volcanic rock from the Livornese hills. What makes this landscape so beautiful though is the hilly backdrop. There aren’t any houses or farms, only uninterrupted woods that descend gently to the coast. The local Mediterranean flora predominantly consists of aromatic plants, shrubs, small trees and a great deal of taller trees such as Holm oaks, Aleppo pines and maritime pines.
The area is also teeming with wildlife. Nests have been found here, belonging to sparrows and red swallows. In fact, numerous species of birds are present here such as doves, thrush and European shag that pass through during migration. Birds aside, there are also many species of mammals such as porcupines, foxes and wild boar.
