The farmlands include Mediterranean maquis woods (full of English oaks, turkey oaks, holm oaks, strawberry trees, heather and broom) where boars, hares, porcupines, foxes and badgers roam freely among pheasants, thrushes, woodcocks and many other bird species. The land is criss-crossed by roads and paths that wind for nearly 20 miles, making ideal routes for long cycle rides or horse treks amid this pristine natural setting. The spring and autumn colours here are simply spectacular.
