This includes many species of birds such as Hoopoes, Hawks, Kestrels, Buzzards, Blackcaps, Spotted Flycatchers, Tree Pipets, Serins, Sardinian Warblers, Swifts, Swallows, Nightjars, and Owls to name but a few. A delight for birdwatchers.
We also have other regular wildlife visitors such as wild boars, porcupines, foxes, hares, stone martens and bats.
Indeed, this area of South Lazio is so rich in Natural Beauty – It is blessed with the best of both worlds:
The nearby beautiful coast with its sandy beaches, rocky crags and coves and hidden caves.
The Protected Natural Parks in This Area of South Lazio
Here in Itri we have the dramatic Aurunci Mountains and their protected Natural Park. Much of the rock is limestone. The mountains spectacularly tumble down to meet the sea.
Consequently the natural beauty is outstanding and the landscape is varied and forever changing.
Fondi has the Ausoni Mountains and Coastal Lakes which form a peaceful natural haven for diverse wildlife.
Gaeta has the Parco Di Monte Orlando which has dramatic rocky crags overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Gaeta.
All of these reserves are a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers, providing tranquil habitats for numerous animal species, particularly a wide range of bird life ranging from birds of prey, to sea and water fowl. They have well signposted trails which traverse wonderful varied terrain, providing magnificent vistas and panoramas of the mountains, coastline and nearby islands. We have a selection of useful maps and local guide books.
Therefore, Tre Cancelle Farmhouse is an excellent base for discovering and exploring the boundless natural beauty of South Lazio.
